More than 100 people were aboard an Amtrak passenger train that partially derailed in a remote corner of Northfield Monday morning. There were no fatalities, but seven people were injured. Gov. Peter Shumlin reported the southbound train derailed due to a rockslide that dumped material onto the tracks. Above, Shumlin and state and local officials hold a news conference at Norwich University to provide details on the accident.
