  Original Published: 7/15/2013  Searchers have recovered two more bodies in the train derailment in Canada.   That brings the death toll to 35.   Investigators say 15 people are still missing after the 73-car train derailed in Quebec July 6.   Authorities say the train's engineer parked the train for the night and checked into a hotel.   Then, somehow, the train got loose and slammed into the center of a neighboring town.   Tank cars full of fuel exploded.   Along with the deaths, the runaway cars destroyed about 40 buildings.   At least three firefighters suffered minor injuries.   The accident has prompted a national discussion in Canada on rail safety.
