DELPHOS — An overnight train derailment Sunday in Delphos left just over 100 households without power but did not result in any injuries or spills.

According to the Delphos Police Department, a train derailed just before midnight on a Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern rail line near the intersection of Bredeick and Bank streets. The derailed cars broke a power pole near that intersection, leaving 103 AEP Ohio customers without power, according to the utility company’s website.

Crews from AEP Ohio were on site at 1:02 a.m. and remained throughout the day Sunday, installing a support beam to help brace the damaged power pole. As of Sunday afternoon, AEP Ohio estimated power to be restored by 10 p.m. Sunday.

While the Feb. 3 train derailment in East Palestine caused significant chemical spills and air pollution due to controlled burns at the site, those scenes were not replicated in Delphos, as the derailed cars were empty grain cars, according to Delphos police.

“We were not called in to assist,” Allen County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency Director Tom Berger said.

Aerial photography of the derailment showed wheelsets broken off the frame of one of the derailed train cars. There was no word of a cause for the derailment given by the rail line, which has investigators looking into the events leading up to the accident, according to Delphos Police.

Attempts to reach Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern Railroad for comment were not successful, and a request for comment from the railroad’s corporate communications department has not yet been answered.
