Derailment Near Winnipeg

The CBC is reporting that a CN freight derailed near Woodridge, MB. It sounds like there were 9 cars involved and it was a general freight train. Noone was injured.

This is about 100 km southeast of Winnipeg, around mile 88.7 of the CN Sprague subdivision. This is 60 MPH country, but if only 9 cars derailed I would think the train was not going at track speed. Hopefully more details will emerge as time goes on.
