TIMNATH, Colo. (AP) - Train service is expected to resume this week after nine cars detailed near an elementary school in northern Colorado, but officials say it will take longer to find the cause of the wreck.

The Great Western Railway cars, part of a 100-car train, came off the tracks and tipped Sunday morning in Timnath, east of Fort Collins. No one was hurt.

The Coloradoan reports (https://noconow.co/27DwhQe ) that cleanup and rail maintenance was expected to be completed by Tuesday and an inspection crew will ensure everything else is safe. Train traffic will resume after the inspection.

As for the cause of the derailment, Great Western Railway spokesman Ron Margulis says investigators have collected evidence to determine the cause, but because no one was injured the investigation is internal, not federally managed.
