However, CN said a leak of solid sulfur was contained to company property.

“It will be some time before they will be able to right those trains,” North Vancouver RCMP Sgt. Peter DeVries said.

“I believe they are going to have to have a train do that sometime on Monday.”

The cause is not yet known.
