A Metra Union Pacific West Line train derailed Thursday night in the western suburbs.

The wheels of the locomotive on train number 41 came off the tracks but the rest of the train remained on. Forty passengers were on board and there were no injuries. It happened near the end of the line and only the Elburn station was affected.

Metra will run shuttles for passengers needing to get to Elburn until further notice.
