OLD TOWN — Officials say a train has derailed in the central Maine town of Old Town.

Public safety officials told the Bangor Daily News that several cars on a 33-car Pan Am train came off the tracks this morning on French Island in the Penobscot River.

None of the cars tipped over and nobody was injured, but the train blocked traffic to streets leading to residences on the island.

For several hours, traffic coming and going from the island’s residential streets were blocked by the train.
