Freight train derails near Grand Saline

By Scott Harvey

Wood County – An Amtrak passenger train was re-routed following a weekend derailment of a freight train near Grand Saline.

Eleven cars from the train went off the tracks but no injuries were reported. The train was re-routed to Longview.

Due to the track closure, Amtrak train 22 detoured via Coriscana and Ennis subdivisions, bypassing the Mineola station.
