Jan 21 (Reuters) - Nine cars on westbound freight train went off the track in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, during rush hour on Wednesday, but there no injuries and no leaks, a spokesman for Canadian National Railway Co said.

Seven of the cars were loaded with sand and two were empty, said Brent Kossey, a manager with railway company, adding that crews were on site working to restore the line to service.
