Trains are running again along a CN Rail located 80 km north of Sudbury after 20 cars carrying consumer goods derailed Sunday along a suspected portion of broken rail.

​The cars went off the track about 3 a.m. on Sunday.

No injuries were reported, and CN noted there are no environmental issues.

The derailment affected passenger rail service, however.

VIA said a Toronto-bound train from Vancouver that was carrying 60 people had to stop in Hornepaye. The passengers were then taken by bus to their destination.
