Calgary Transit has restored C-train service between the Tuscany and Crowfoot LRT stations after Tuesday’s derailment but there are still a lot of questions about what happened.
The train continued westbound right off the tracks at the Tuscany station, derailing a number of cars.
Transit officials yesterday said they had not yet been able to speak to the driver who was seriously injured.
The mechanical investigation is expected to take about a week.
“We have to look at a lot of things. We have to look at the condition of the vehicle, the condition of the track, signals, as well as the operator,” Calgary Transit’s acting director Russell Davies said. “We expect to have some findings fairly soon, but there’s nothing pointing a specific way just yet.”
The front car of the train , worth $4.5 million is a write-off. The replacement cost will be covered by the city’s insurance.
