New Britain CT may sue PAR over December 2016 derailment

Postby MEC407 » Sat Nov 04, 2017 11:08 am

From NBC Connecticut:

NBC Connecticut wrote:The City of New Britain is threatening legal action against Pan Am Railways after asking them to reimburse the city for the thousands of dollars it cost to deal with a December 2016 derailment.

The derailment cost the city just over $78,000. New Britain city officials told NBC Connecticut that Pan Am Railways wanted to settle for $38,432, which totals the approximate cost of the city’s emergency response, equipment and overtime, after a Pan Am train derailed on Columbus Boulevard.
. . .
After the city said they reached an agreement with the railroad company, they were supposed to receive half of the money in September and the other half in October, but the city said they have not received a dime.

Days before the City of New Britain would have filed a lawsuit against Pan Am Railways over reimbursement for the thousands of dollars it cost to deal with a December 2016 derailment, the city has received a check.
The derailment cost the city just over $78,000. New Britain city officials told NBC Connecticut that Pan Am Railways wanted to settle for $38,432, which totals the approximate cost of the city’s emergency response, equipment and overtime, after a Pan Am train derailed on Columbus Boulevard.
Part of a settlement states that Pan Am, who was at fault for the derailment, would remove the rest of a brick wall that was damaged.
After the city said they reached an agreement with the railroad company, they were supposed to receive half of the money in September and the other half in October, but the city had not received the money until Monday when it received a check for $38,432.24 from Pan Am Railways.
