CN Daily Accident Report

Jump to Comments

CN logo This is getting ridiculous. CN had another derailment in B.C. on Saturday — about one-third of the cars of a 90-car grain train left the tracks on the CN mainline near Blue River. Fortunately, grain is hardly a hazardous material, and it was cleaned up; there were no injuries. And, half a continent away, they had just gotten their line east of Toronto reopened the day before.

Neither accident was major as such things go, but this just goes to show how closely scrutinized CN’s safety record is of late. Coverage was probably not helped by last week’s release of Transport Canada’s safety audit.
