A Canadian Pacific Railway train has derailed west of Banff on Thursday afternoon, a Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) spokesperson confirms to CBC News.

It happened near Mile 87 in the Laggan Subdivision west of the town, Chris Krepski said.

Twenty rail cars left the track, he said, 10 empty auto carriers and 10 loaded grain cars.

Krepski says the board is investigating but dangerous goods were not a factor.

CP said in a statement late Thursday its investigators are on the way to the site.

“There were no injuries and there are no public safety concerns. CP immediately dispatched teams to the site. The cause of the incident is under investigation,” spokesperson Salem Woodrow¬†said.
