ST. JOE, Ind. – CSX loaded coal train T91217 derailed twelve hopper cars around 12:20 p.m. April 22 at St. Joe, blocking both main tracks on the busy former Baltimore & Ohio Garrett Subdivision main line.

CSX detoured several trains around the derailment via Norfolk Southern’s ex-New York Central main line through Elkhart, Ind. and Toledo, Ohio. No injuries were reported. The DeKalb County Sheriffs Department, Homeland Security and the Southeast Township Fire Department were sent to the scene.

Both tracks reopened for service by midafternoon April 23.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly named the location of the incident.
