At 8:15 a.m., Mounties responded to a train derailment between Range Roads 251 and 252, near Highway 3. Fire crews and CP Rail also came to the scene, according to police.
There are no injuries or concerns to public safety, RCMP say.
CP crews have started recovery work, a spokesperson for CP Rail told CBC News in an email.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation, they added.
