West of Saskatoon, I don't have any info beyond what the media reported.

Further to the above post.  The train was CP rail carrying crude and it has piled up and is on fire.
There is one very blurry pic on one of the accounts.  States that flames can be seen as far away as Watrous.

Small correction.  According to my map,  Lanigan is EAST of Saskatoon.

Is this on the CP mainline?

This is on CP's "Prairie North Line" which runs from a junction with the main line at Portage La Prairie MB, (fifty miles west of Winnipeg) to South Edmonton AB. It has a variety of branches, and is all "dark" territory (OCS). It has been upgraded with heavier rail and structures and handles potash, grain and petroleum products.

Well, dark territory usually doesn't have any broken rail protection.......seems silly to run crude on it "safely".

BNSF has 50 zones on their Boise city sub Colorado to Texas. 5 miles long and with verbal announcements when the next zone is "down". Too cheap to signal it as its directional traffic....They won't add it to wind river canyon and one rock has taken out a train already:)

The first of two sections of a westbound freight is seen passing through Esk, SK. in May 1972. This is close to the location of the crude oil train wreck.
