Rail cars carrying dangerous goods go off tracks en route to Thompson

A train derailment has disrupted rail service between Winnipeg and Thompson Thursday.

Arctic Gateway Group (AGG), which owns Hudson Bay Railway, says cars went off the track Tuesday afternoon on a line just east of Thompson.

No one was hurt.

A spokesperson told CTV News Winnipeg in an email crews are assessing the situation as several cars were carrying dangerous goods.

Transport Canada has been notified.

While freight and VIA Rail service on the Thompson subdivision are affected, AGG says passenger service from Winnipeg to Churchill is not.

The company advises rail passengers who want to go to or leave Thompson should find alternative transport.
