CP Rail leaves mountain train parked without crew or handbrakes near site of deadly 2019 runaway crash

Canadian Pacific Railway is under fire after leaving a 2.5-kilometre-long grain train parked without handbrakes last month high in the mountains of eastern B.C., above the site of a deadly runaway two years ago that killed three employees.

Transport Canada calls the latest case "an immediate threat" that could have led to another deadly derailment. The regulator has ordered CP to stop leaving trains unattended on the hill without first applying handbrakes to the rail cars.

"Haven't they learned from the devastation that happened to three of their men — my son killed?" said Cari Waldenberger, whose son Daniel died in the Feb. 4, 2019, crash near Field, B.C.
