Two cars of a westbound CP Rail grain train have derailed in Metro Vancouver.

The cars jumped the tracks shortly after 2 a.m. local time in an industrial area on the shores of Burrard Inlet, just east of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge on the boundary between Vancouver and Burnaby.

A CP spokeswoman says no one has been hurt and a crew is on the scene assessing the situation.

While it's not believed the derailment has caused any environmental damage, it is already causing chaos for morning commuters.

The CP tracks are shared by the West Coast Express commuter train and the derailment means passengers will have to transfer to buses or Skytrain for the remainder of the trip into downtown Vancouver.
