GATINEAU, QC, April 11, 2016 /CNW/ - After a detailed assessment, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is launching an investigation into the uncontrolled movement of a railway car that occurred in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on March 27. While switching in Canadian Pacific's Sutherland Yard, a tail end rail car separated from the train and rolled uncontrolled through the yard and across two public level rail crossings equipped with automatic protection before coming to rest on the main line. There were no injuries.
