Two Derailments During Alberta Windstorm Being Cleaned Up
Oct. 25th, 2017 – CN Rail stated work continues on cleaning up a pair of train derailments in central Alberta during the windstorms that swept through parts of the Prairies last Tuesday. Train traffic has resumed near Huxley, Alta., where a freight train lost 67 of its cars last Tuesday as winds gusted to 75 mph. Less than an hour after that incident, 13 cars of a westbound train derailed on CN’s Fabyan trestle bridge west of Wainright. This portion of the track was repaired over the weekend and following the opening, CN is quickly working towards regaining full fluidity. Service is being monitored and those customers that have shipments at risk are being contacted.
