No injuries were reported after a CSX train derailed on Monday in Greenwich. News reports indicated that 20 cars derailed about noon.

The derailment occurred along North Kniffin Street and took out some power lines in the area, disrupting service to about 100 customers.

The cars involved in the derailment were empty container well cars and flat cars. An online report indicated the train was the I008, which originates near St. Louis and runs to North Bergan, New Jersey.

The train was moving from the Mt. Victory Subdivision to the Greenwich Sub. The derailment blocked the New Castle Subdivision tracks.

An online report indicated that most of the derailed cars had been moved out of the way and the crossing of the New Castle Sub was reopened late Monday afternoon with a 10 mph speed restriction.

All other CSX tracks through Greenwich were reported to be reopened by Tuesday morning. Kniffin Street was reported to still be closed.
