Freight Train Derailed
A Canadian National .Railways freight train was derailed east of the Long Sault Station Friday when 23 cars, carrying steel bars, were forced off the tracks.
No one was injured. Cause of the derailment has not been released by CNR.
Engineer Ernest Jackson of Brockville said the Toronto-Montreal train was travelling about 55 miles an hour at the time. Six cars remained on the tracks.
About 400 feet of eastbound track was demolished. Passenger service has been disrupted and CNR is providing bus service from Cornwall to Toronto while work crews repair the track.
Toronto! - Montreal passenger trains are being diverted at Brockville to Smiths Falls and from there will take a Canadian Pacific Railways line to Montreal.
