A mudslide has caused a train derailment in White Canyon, which is east of Lytton and very close to the Kumsheen Rafting Resort.

Black Press has learned that a CP train was carrying grain on Tuesday, Sept. 28, running on a CN track when it went off the rails.

There were no injuries and heavy equipment is already on the scene for recovery efforts.
