Tiny Town reopens following train accident

MORRISON, Colo. (AP) – Tiny Town is reopening but its train won’t start running until next week.

The small train at the children’s amusement park west of Denver derailed Wednesday. State officials are investigating whether operator error is to blame.

The state labor department says initial information indicates the engineer of the train at Tiny Town accelerated rather than braked on a turn. Agency spokeswoman Cher Haavind says the state is conducting a joint investigation with the manufacturer of the train.

Fifteen people were injured in Wednesday’s accident. Most received bumps and bruises, but three were hospitalized. All but one was released Thursday.
