Crews are dealing with a big mess in southern Albemarle County after a train derailed. 

Twenty-nine cars hauling loads of coal went off the tracks near Hatton Grange Farm along the James River west of Scottsville. 

Police say no one was hurt, but the lost coal is making for a hefty cleanup job. 

The CSX rail company says the derailment closed a portion of Warren Ferry Road.

The company doesn't yet know the cause, nor does it give an estimate of when cleanup will be complete or when train service will resume.

The train was headed from Peach Creek, West Virginia to Newport News.
