PORT HURON, Mich. — CN rail crews are reportedly removing the last train car derailed a week ago in the international tunnel between Port Huron and Canada. Roughly 40 rail cars derailed in the early morning hours of Friday, June 28, in the tunnel, spurring the spill of more than 13,000 gallons of sulfuric acid. Removal of the mangled cars and material leak continued through the weekend and over the last seven days.
