An early morning train derailment in Robertson County delayed train traffic and blocked some rural roads Tuesday.

The 101 car train was on its way to San Antonio from Wisconsin, when it derailed. It was carrying drilling sand, a non hazardous material, but it did damage about 100 feet of track that must be repaired before rail traffic can resume.

Some rural roads were blocked initially by the derailment. There were no injuries reported.
