Freight train derails in Twin Cities metro

Email

A freight train derailment in the Twin Cities metro has canceled Northstar commuter rail service between Big Lake and Ramsey. Metro Transit canceled service early Friday because the derailed Burlington Northern Santa Fe train is blocking the tracks. Metro Transit says limited bus service will be offered from Elk River, Ramsey, Anoka, Coon Rapids and Fridley, but the buses can't carry as many passengers and trips will run significantly longer.
