No one was injured as a result of a train derailment north of Blue River on Wednesday afternoon

Two locomotives and six railcars were involved in a derailment about 20 miles north of Blue River, according to a CN spokesperson.

There were no injuries to the crew. The railcars were carrying intermodal containers and so there was no contamination from them, the spokesperson said.

The rail-line was reopened Friday morning.
