CN Derailment in Oakville

An eastbound CN freight train had a minor derailment in Oakville, Manitoba last night (Tuesday at 9:30 PM) after an emergency brake application. The rear wheels of one grain car went off the rails, and sparks from the train started a minor fire. The fire was under control within an hour and CN was running trains on the adjacent track by 11:30 PM. The local highway 13 was closed because of the fire.
