Update: Minor CN derailment near Terrace B.C.

Train equipment skidded off the track July 12 by Kitsumkalum

CN Rail said the incident earlier this week was not a derailment but a minor accident.

“A piece of work equipment that is used to install rail was involved in a minor, low speed incident this week on a side track near Terrace,” said Kate Fenske July 13, adding that the equipment involved was not a freight train as previously thought.

The train didn’t tip over and no real damage was apparent, and crews are still investigating the reason for the crash.
