Derailed train cars fall from bridge in Duluth’s West End

A Canadian National train carrying 17 empty cars derailed while approaching a limestone storage area on a trestle bridge near the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railway Ore Docks this morning.

Two cars fell; one landed upside down, the other landed against a support for the ore docks and sat standing on its end. No one was hurt.

  1. I know I always look up and wince just a little every time I drive under those and there is a train moving up above.

  2. Meh. Someone tripped while using an escalator, too, downtown. Not really news, is this? Just a small-scale incident at a workplace?
