The TSB has issued a preliminary report on the February 6 crash crash on Friday morning.

“A review of the locomotive event recorder download revealed that the train was handled in accordance with regulations and company requirements,” said the TSB in its preliminary update.

It also found that of the 31 derailed tankers, 19 closed the nearby highway and were caught in a fire that caused about 85 people to evacuate voluntarily.
