      CSX offering to pay Abbeville residents' expenses


      ABBEVILLE, S.C. (AP) -




      CSX spokeswoman Carla Groleau says those affected by a train derailment earlier this month merely need to bring receipts to the Abbeville Civic Center this week to get reimbursed for expenses.


      Twenty-eight cars of a freight train derailed early on March 8.



      As many as 1,000 people were evacuated at one time. About 50



      residents were kept away from their homes for two days while the



      wreck was cleaned up.


      Officials say a tipped over tanker carrying methanol was stable



      but officials wanted residents near the tracks to stay away because



      the flammable liquid could have caught fire.


      The cause of the wreck is still under investigation. Groleau



      says the investigation could take weeks.
