CN Derailment Began in Canada

The derailment of a Canadian National train inside the St. Clair Tunnel started on the Canadian side of the border the Transportation Safety Board of Canada has concluded.

TSB will thus take the lead in investigating the June 28 derailment that closed the busy rail artery between Port Huron, Michigan, and Sarnia, Ontario, for several days and led to some CN trains detouring on Norfolk Southern and CSX between Toledo and Buffalo, New York.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board was also involved in the initial investigation of the derailment.

CN said 46 cars and a DPU derailed inside the tunnel with some of the cars spilling sulfuric acid.
