LIVERMORE FALLS — Police were alerted last week that a Pan Am train had derailed across Strickland Loop Road, off Route 106, and a section of rail was broken.

Pan Am Railways advised the Androscoggin County dispatch center in Auburn on Aug. 15 at 11:34 p.m. that 10 cars had derailed and they were blocking a portion of the road, Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kevin Letourneau said Thursday.

Livermore Falls police Sgt. Joseph Sage said the department was alerted by dispatchers of the derailment but no assistance was requested.

Pan Am advised dispatchers that the road would be blocked for “quite some time,” possibly into the afternoon of Aug. 16, according to the dispatchers report from Pan Am.

There were no hazardous materials on board, no injuries and no rail cars tipped over, it states.

The train was not blocking either roadway, according to dispatcher’s report.

A person that answered a Pan Am Railways number said she had nothing to say and was not answering questions.

No other information was available.
