Train Derailment Just One Part of Busy Week for RCMP


Whistler British Columbia - A train derailed near Birken on Monday, 4 Sep 2017, sending several cars into the waters of Gates Lake, roughly 30 kilometres northeast of Pemberton.
 
The cars were carrying lumber and pulp.
 
A spokesperson for CN Rail said the investigation has not yet determined the cause of the derailment, but according to Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) emergency manager Ryan Wainwright, "Anecdotally, it was probably a track issue."
 
RCMP also attended the scene but are not investigating.
