Delta County rescuers relived their own version of the Titanic today when a train stuck several fallen rocks and a huge boulder.

The rockslide had already pushed the tracks several feet to the side and a couple of wheels on the train derailed.

This caused some concern for people living nearby.

There were no injuries from the derailment. Officials on scene say last night's rain may have caused the rocks to tumble
