CN suffered a jack-knife style derailment late this afternoon on Steelton Hill. Two SD60Fs were shoving hard on the rear and a tank car and empty flat left the rails as they started into a curve just north of the yard. Word is that they will detour this evening via Proctor Hill and BNSF through Superior like they have done in the past. By the looks of things they should have the mainline open in the morning. Hulcher should just station a crew in the Twin Ports...CN would keep them busy.

Sounds like CN 199 is the first detour, getting ready to head over BNSF from Pokegama to Duluth.
