BIGHORN COUNTY, Mon. (WEAU) A train on its way to northern Wisconsin goes off the tracks, and now the company is trying to figure out why.

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway spokesman says the company is investigating a coal train derailment where 13 cars went off the tracks in southeastern Montana.

He said the loaded train originated at the Decker Mine in Bighorn County, which is north of the Wyoming state line. It was on its way to Superior when the cars derailed at about 7:45 Thursday night.

No one was injured.

The company says the rail line where the derailment happened is expected to reopen Saturday.
