Another LRT train derails at Belfast Yard Social Sharing

By Joanne Chianello, CBC News Ottawa, June 26, 2019

A second LRT train derailed in as many months at Ottawa's Belfast Yard storage and maintenance facility, but neither the city nor the consortium building the Confederation Line will provide any information about the incident.

A train came off the tracks sometime early Monday morning, CBC has learned. A similar incident occurred in early May.

But unlike the last time, when city officials held a news conference on the sidewalk across the street from the yard, the city is now refusing to comment on what exactly what went wrong, or whether the train was damaged.
