Pan Am Railways said four tanker cars went off the tracks near the Penobscot River in central Maine on Wednesday, but no one was hurt and nothing was spilled. Executive vice president Cynthia Scarano said three cars carrying liquid carbon dioxide and an empty tanker derailed at about 5:30 a.m. near the Veazie-Bangor town line. Scarano said the 92-car train was traveling from Mattawamkeag to Waterville, carrying wallboard, wood products, sand, scrap metal, and other products. Scarano said the carbon dioxide did not pose safety or environmental risks.
