Metro-North says that the locomotive of the derailed New York City commuter train that killed four people has been righted.

Spokesman Aaron Donovan says that cranes re-railed the engine at 4:20 a.m. Monday.

Two cranes are in place to lift the rest of the derailed cars pending approval of the National Transportation and Safety Board.

Donovan says about 150 people were on board when the train derailed while rounding a riverside curve in the Bronx. More than 60 people were injured. The accident occurred on the Hudson line which carries 26,000 weekday riders. Federal authorities are embarking on an exhaustive investigation into what caused the derailment.
