Shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, June 7, Baltimore County 911 received multiple calls reporting a train derailment in the Lansdowne area adjacent to Hammonds Ferry Road. First-arriving units from the Lansdowne Volunteer Fire Department reported multiple train cars of a CSX train had derailed in the area of Elizabeth Avenue. Upon further investigation, firefighters found 10 cars had come off the tracks and several were overturned on their sides. CSX officials said the train was carrying municipal and commercial waste from upstate New York to Virginia. No injuries were reported, there were no hazardous materials involved and Baltimore County fire units remained on the scene assisting CSX officials and the Maryland Department of the Environment.
