About a dozen cars of grain derailed on a Union Pacific train Wednesday evening near Mexia, TX, KCEN-TV reports.

KXXV-TV places the incident in Shiloh, TX, about 5 miles southeast of Mexia, and says it occurred about 6:45 p.m., after heavy rains and flooding in the area led to a washout, according to the Shiloh Volunteer Fire Department. (There are at least two Shilohs in Texas; this one is in Limestone County; the incident occurred near the intersection of Limestone County roads 456 and 460.) The railroad told KCEN the cause is under investigation.

No injuries were reported. Cleanup was continuing on Thursday.

Shiloh is about 90 miles south of Dallas on UP’s Ennis Subdivision. It was one of two UP derailments in Texas on Wednesday; the other involved about 20 cars of an intermodal train near the West Texas community of Pyote [see “Union Pacific train derails …,” News Wire, May 1, 2024].
