Freight train derails on north shore

Five cars left the tracks east of Marathon

MARATHON, Ont. -- Canadian Pacific Railway says its main line north of Lake Superior has reopened following a derailment.

Five units of a CP intermodal train left the tracks late Sunday afternoon about 36 kilometres east of Marathon.

A CP spokesperson said there was no threat to public safety, and no injuries.

The federal Transportation Safety Board, the agency that investigates railway accidents, said that because no hazardous materials were spilled, and no one was hurt, it did not deploy investigators to the site.

The railway spokesperson told Tbnewswatch Tuesday morning that CP is continuing to investigate the cause of the derailment.
