Calgary Transit has restored C-Train service between the Tuscany and Crowfoot LRT stations.
Shuttle buses were being used for part of the afternoon as a result of that derailment Tuesday morning.
The investigation into the crash continues.
The female driver of a Calgary C-train was taken to Foothills Hospital Tuesday morning in serious condition after a train derailment at Tuscany station.
Calgary Police, EMS and fire crews rushed to the scene after the incident occurred just after 7am at the end of the northwest line.
Tim called News Talk 770 from the scene to tell us about the derailment of the westbound train.
“It looks like a train that was pulling into Tuscany went and shot right off the end of the line. It looks like two or three cars completely left the track. The front windshield was completely smashed and as it was the cars almost looked like they had piled up on each other.”
Keith Sherwood says he came upon the scene on his way to work.
“It was a mess. Luckily it happened early in the morning heading westbound.”
Calgary Fire Department spokesperson Carol Henke says firefighers needed hydraulic equipment to remove the woman, in her 60s from the wreckage.
There were two other people on the train but they were not hurt.
Ron Collins with Calgary Transit says they’re now trying to determine the cause of the derailment.
“We’ve got police, fire, ems and Calgary Transit crews still on scene trying to determine how the train, and why the train got to where it was, because it was beyond Tuscany station, which is the terminal end station. It traveled along the tail track and through a fence at the very end.”
Enmax crews were on scene for the most of the morning dealing with a downed C-train line.
