A train derailment on Vancouver’s waterfront was caught on camera Sunday morning.
Resident Kian Gray told Global News he heard an “unusually loud screeching sound” coming from the railyard at Waterfront Station.
He looked out the window and saw a number of stacked container cars being dragged sideways across three sets of tracks, eventually coming to rest against a parked tanker car.
