Casselton, ND (WDAY TV) - If you've lost money from Casselton's train accident, be it hotel, food, even work, BNSF's claim center is now open.

Thursday is the first day people could line up to try to get back some of the money they had to spend.

Most of the crowd was filing smaller personal claims, and brought receipts to prove their spending.

They could walk away with a check on the spot.

But for larger claims, some thousands of dollars, it will take a long more paperwork and time.

Nick Pyle/Filing Business Claim: “Its several thousand dollars probably that we'll be looking at. Just because we've got 14-15 people employed that were all paid to not be there that day, or day and a half, so we'll just see what BNSF is willing to do for the lost time.”

The center is closed for Thursday, but will open back up Friday at the Days Inn in Casselton from 8 to 5.

You can also call BNSF's toll free claims number- 1-866-243-4784.
