Service on two Montreal train lines was disrupted late Thursday morning due to a minor train derailment on the tracks near Central Station.

Exo, the transit authority responsible for commuter trains in the Montreal area, says multiple trains were cancelled or delayed on the Deux-Montagnes and Mascouche lines as a result.

Catherine Maurice, spokesperson for Exo, said one car on the train came off the tracks. No one was aboard the train at the time and there are no injuries, she added.

“We are working on the problem,” she said.
