EDWARDSVILLE — Madison County authorities say a bomb found along rural railroad tracks in in southwestern Illinois has been deactivated without injury.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Norfolk Southern Railroad workers notified sheriff's deputies after finding the bomb Monday near Edwardsville.
A bomb-disposal unit with the Illinois Secretary of State's Office was summoned and deactivated the device made from a small, barbecue grill-type propane tank attached to several flares. The device was turned over to Norfolk Southern for investigation.
Norfolk Southern spokesman Robin Chapman says the device probably wouldn't have done a lot of damage.
Chapman says the railroad track is used only by freight trains.
