DELAWARE, Ohio — Several train cars remain at the site of a derailment that happened last week in Delaware Township.
According to Norfolk Southern spokesperson Connor Spielmaker, the derailment happened around 11 a.m. on January 27 on the railroad tracks near Curve Road. That’s just south of Delaware city limits, near Meijer. Ten cars out of more than 200 on the train were derailed.
Spielmaker said the cars were empty when the derailment happened. No injuries were reported.

Norfolk Southern crews worked through Friday and into Saturday morning to clear the tracks, make repairs, and get train traffic moving again.
As of Thursday morning, five rail cars remain along the tracks. Spielmaker said that depending on the damage, the cars could be repaired or scrapped on site, depending on the severity of the damage. There’s not yet a clear timeline for removal.
The Federal Railroad Administration is investigating the cause of the derailment, but a report won’t be available for several months.
