Railway Accidents and Incidents in the Ottawa Area

In the past accidents were regarded as the opportunity for a social event

In this page we will set out the more significant railway accidents, derailments, collisions etc. that have occurred in the Ottawa area.
The area covers any railway within the boundaries of the following points:

Coteau, Rigaud, Hawkesbury, Montebello, Maniwaki, Waltham, Chalk River, Brent, Madawaska, the Kingston and Pembroke Railway down to Kingston and the St. Lawrence River from Kingston to Coteau.

 Because of the great number of accidents it is impossible to list all of them so these are limited to accidents involving:

  loss of life or significant injury to passengers or train crew
  passenger trains
  significant number of cars derailed
  other significant accidents or incidents
  accidents for which the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) has produced a report.

Grade crossing accidents with highway vehicles have generally been omitted, as have trespassing incidents and accidents where employees have fallen off trains, unless there is a significant number of fatalities 

Set out below, in chronological order, is a general listing with hot links, where available, giving further information on the accident concerned.

In addition to the detailed listing below this pdf file sets out a large number of accidents reported by the regulatory body and from newspaper files:
