January 27, 2016 | News 8000| Fifteen cars of a southbound Canadian Pacific Railway mixed-freight train went off the tracks late Tuesday night near Reno, about three miles south of Brownsville at the overlook. Six tanker cars ended up in the Mississippi River.
Early reports showed no leaks, but as the day progressed that changed.
The six tankers that ended up in the river were all carrying vegetable oil.
It wasn’t until about noon when emergency crews were finally able to get onto the ice to inspect the cars and realize that one of the tankers was leaking.
