Numerous cars of a freight train carrying corn left the tracks in downtown Owosso on Saturday night, many of them overturning.
Passengers on the North Pole Express Saturday evening trip had to be bused back to Steam Railroading Institute. The Pere Marquette 1225 and its load was not part of the derailment, but the train could not proceed because the derailment blocked the tracks.
We're working to learn what caused the derailment. This is a developing story.
