A train derailed from the Puget Sound and Pacific Railroad north of Centralia early Thursday morning.
Large sections of rail in the area of Foron Road were severely damaged, and several cars were sitting off track, but none were flipped over. It does not appear any materials or products were spilled. However, large sections of the rail were torn from the ties and lying on their sides, while in other sections the rails were missing completely.
*(ed note) technically, this derailment was brought to you by the Port of Centralia's rails and cannot be blamed on PSAP in any way, regarding the recent inspection of all 56 miles of track by a geometric car, which found they were completely safe.
