First responders were called to an accident involving a train at the intersection of the Montée Leblanc and Carr Road in Godmanchester around 7:35 p.m. on December 11. CN crews as well as members of the Godmanchester Fire Department responded to the train derailment, which involved two locomotives and four rail cars. The train was headed toward Montreal. A statement issued the following afternoon by CN confirmed “there were no injuries, no leaks, no fires, and no dangerous goods involved.” The railway remained closed overnight and into the following day. “Crews are out there re-railing now,” said a CSX media relations representative, while confirming the operation is ongoing and the railway would be closed until the site has been secured. According to CN, the cause of the incident is under investigation.
