MONTREAL – The trains of the EXO commuter agency's Candiac Line have resumed stopping at the Saint-Catherine station this morning after the reopening of both main tracks through the site of a derailment of a Canadian Pacific freight train overnight. Trains are moving at reduced speed through the derailment site at milepost 35.8 of the Adirondack Subdivision until track and bridge repairs have been completed.

One crewmember was injured when five cars of a Montreal-bound train derailed at about 11:30 p.m. Monday adjacent to the Canadian Railway Museum in Saint-Constant. The cause of the derailment is under investigation.

According to the agency, the Candiac Line was re-opened in 2001 to mitigate traffic congestion caused by roadwork. In 2005, the line was extended from Delson to Candiac, and made permanent in July 2009.

Starting in downtown Montréal, this line crosses the St. Lawrence River to service the south-western region all the way to Candiac.
