FILE - In this July 6, 2013 photo, smoke rises from railway cars carrying crude oil after derailing in downtown Lac Megantic, Quebec. A U.S. bankruptcy trustee says he hopes checks from a $338 million settlement fund for victims of the derailment that killed 47 people can be mailed in a month or two.
