CORNWALL - State inspectors have found critical and non-critical defects along CSX tracks, including one in Orange County.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the latest inspection uncovered 84 defects.  Three of the defects were critical safety defects, and another two were hazardous material violations.

One of the critical defects was found in Cornwall, where there was a problem with the switch transition device.

The inspection is part of the governor's push to fix the potential dangers associated with the transportation of crude oils by freight trains.

The non-critical rail defects must be repaired in 30 days, and all tank car defects must be fixed before the train leaves the yard.
