COLD SPRING, N.Y. (AP) — It's the second funeral in two days for victims of a train derailment in New York City.

Jim Lovell's funeral is scheduled for Friday morning in Cold Spring. James Ferrari of Montrose was buried Thursday.

Lovell, a sound and lighting expert, was headed to work on the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree when a Metro-North commuter train derailed Sunday in the Bronx. Four people were killed. An investigation is focusing on the train's high speed.

The TV broadcast of Wednesday's tree-lighting was dedicated to Lovell, a married father of four.

At Ferrari's funeral, his brother said the derailment was "just not fair" because Ferrari had found the loving family he wanted.

A heavy fog blanketed mourners as they walked behind the hearse to a nearby graveyard for Ferrari's burial.
