CHICAGO (AP) - Amtrak officials say a train departing from New Orleans derailed not far from Chicago's Union Station.
Amtrak spokeswoman Christina Leeds says no one was injured and the train remained upright.
The derailment happened around Sunday morning.
Leeds says the Amtrak train No. 58 left New Orleans on Saturday and there were roughly 200 passengers on board. The passengers were transferred to shuttle buses and taken to Union Station in Chicago.
The derailed led to delays and cancellations for some commuter trains.
