CRAMERTON, N.C. - Cleanup crews are torching parts of railroad cars left sitting in Cramerton for almost two months.

Dozens of cars derailed along Eighth Avenue in August.

About 12 cars were left on the tracks because cleanup crews were unavailable.  The rail company had a cleanup crew that cleared most of the mess in September, but they were not been available to finish the job.

Channel 9 is asking city leaders, neighbors and Norfolk Southern about the delays in cleanup.
