FORT FRANCES – Forty rail cars left the tracks in Fort Frances. The train derailment will be investigated.

The TSB is an independent agency that investigates marine, pipeline, railway and aviation transportation occurrences. Its sole aim is the advancement of transportation safety. It is not the function of the Board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability.
