Twelve cars of a Union Pacific train derailed Monday afternoon in the west end of the Cheyenne Railroad yard.
The cars are known as “car racks” because they are made to carry automobiles. The news media has not reported whether the derailed railcars were loaded or not.
Cheyenne Fire and Rescue arrived at the 1900 block of W. Lincolnway just before 5 p.m. Monday, the Casper Star Tribune reported.
No hazardous materials were released. Train traffic was temporarily stopped, and a powerline was reportedly damaged, the Tribune said.
The scene was cleared by 6:31 p.m. and cleanup was underway Tuesday. The cause is under investigation, according to the report.

Was anybody hurt? I guess nobody cares about the workers to report that.
Anyone else notice that 2-person train crew bill isn’t any senator’s priority bill?
Yes Flatrock Frank, the unicameral is bogged down in child-genital-mutilation and stupid trans-gender issues.
Richard, Thanks for asking. No one was hurt, which is a reason why it wasn’t reported.
