CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — The Georgetown Loop Railroad went off the tracks and tipped onto its side during a passenger trip Tuesday afternoon.

Viewer Erin Doty said she was on the train for the 3:15 p.m. trip.

“The train started going backwards, felt oddly bumpy. All of a sudden, the train started tipping back and forth and within seconds the train tipped on one side,” she said.

A spokesperson for the Georgetown Loop Railroad said there were no injuries and service on the tourist train was suspended for the rest of the day.

They weren't sure yet what caused the accident but the spokesperson said it was most likely mechanical failure or ice.

Yikes. Good thing they were not on that scary high bridge. Surprised they are even open in the winter season.

The Santa Train is very popular in December. Good thing it didn't tip the other way.

Was the Griswold family riding on the train at the time? Kidding aside, that would be scary.

Maybe they should hire Amtrak to manage our little railroad.
