WOODLAND, Wash. (AP) — An Amtrak spokeswoman says the lead engine of an Amtrak Cascades train traveling from Portland to Seattle has derailed in southwest Washington but no one was injured.
A Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway spokesman says the Wednesday evening derailment blocked both main lines in a rail corridor used by more than 50 freight and passenger trains daily.
Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter says the train was carrying 86 passengers when the engine went off the tracks near Woodland. Bus transportation was being arranged for the passengers.
Also affected Wednesday night was a southbound Amtrak train headed from Seattle to Eugene, Ore. Hunter says that train stopped in Centralia and Amtrak was working to secure buses for its passengers.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says crews hope to have the route reopened sometime Thursday.
