Three gondola cars carrying a solid, environmentally sensitive product packaged in cubic meter-sized bags were also involved. The product, Nickel Sulphide, is an intermediate in the nickel mining process and is contained. The other cars involved were empty."

Fenske adds there were no injuries in the incident and no leaking of any dangerous goods. She says the investigation into the cause of the derailment is ongoing with the Transportation Safety Board.
