TORONTO, July 18 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index rose on Monday, led by consumer and railway stocks as investor attention returned to corporate earnings after a failed military coup in Turkey late last week.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 49.98 points, or 0.35 percent, at 14,532.40. Nine of the index's 10 main industry groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
