A multiple rail car train derailment early Saturday morning about 50 kilometres east of Elma is now under investigation by CN and the Transportation Safety Board.
The incident, involving a westbound CN train, occurred around 2:30 a.m. at a location about five miles west of the Manitoba/Ontario border.
CN spokesperson Kate Fenske said that 23 cars were involved in the incident, which she said caused no injuries and no threat to the public.
No leaks of dangerous good were reported about the derailed tank cars. Six cars carrying petroleum products and a corrosive liquid were involved, Fenske said, adding that no crude oil transports were involved in the derailment. Three gondola cars carrying nickel sulphide were also affected. All remaining rail cars were said to be empty.
The line was reopened on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Fenske said crews would remain on site to remove cars and complete a full clean-up.
