There has been another train derailment in southern Alberta – this time near Coaldale.
Two train cars made their way off the tracks about eight kilometres east of the town Friday morning.
The derailment took place around 6 p.m. with Canadian Pacific (CP) saying a locomotive and hopper fell into the ditch.
No one was hurt in the incident, the company reported.
The train was carrying grain and was located only metres away from a grain terminal.
Residents near the derailment site aren’t concerned about spills, even if trains are carrying oil or other hazardous materials.
