BROCKVILLE, Ont (CP) Mainline traffic between here and Montreal was resumed Sunday after being halted for about 20 hours by the derailment of 17 cars of a Canadian National Railways freight train. There were no injuries in the crash, which a CN official estimated to have caused damage totalling $500,000. The cause was not immediately determined. While the track was out of use passenger trains were rerouted via Smiths Falls and Cornwall. One tanker car containing 6,000 gallons of tetra-ethyl lead, an additive for gasoline, sprang a leak but officials held it under control while crews repaired the car. About 20 diesel truck chassis chassis and cabs were scattered in a ditch when a truck car overturned.
