JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Workers are trying to get two locomotives and four rail cars back on track after a derailment in south-central North Dakota.

A spokeswoman for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway says the derailment happened Wednesday morning near Gavilon Grain west of Jamestown.

Amy McBeth tells KQDJ Radio the derailment happened on industry track, so the railroad’s main line was kept open and traffic was not affected.

The derailed locomotives and cars all stayed upright. No one was hurt. The cause remains under investigation.
