A Monday story on railroad safety incorrectly identified a train that derailed on Sept. 7 in Victoria, Texas. The train belonged to Kansas City Southern Railway Company and was traveling on a Union Pacific rail line. The accident was caused by a track irregularity. An incorrect date also was given for a train collision that occurred in east Texas involving a Union Pacific freight train and an Amtrak train. The incident was reported on Sept. 11, 2001. In all, Union Pacific dealt with at least three incidents involving derailments or runaway cars shortly after an uncontrolled chlorine tanker sped through Las Vegas on Aug. 29.
