Canadian Pacific Railway says it did everything possible to inspect a Calgary bridge that failed early Thursday morning, leaving six derailed cars stranded on the sagging track.

The company said floodwaters caused the Bonnybrook rail bridge to buckle.

“Despite numerous, vigilant and beyond regulatory inspections of the bridge, one of the four piers which support it experienced scouring,” said spokesman Mark Seland.


Pretty ugly situation there.
Next stop the square, journal square station next!
