  Ashton, IA (KICD) — No injuries were reported as a train derailed near Ashton.
  Shortly after midnight, Tuesday, a Union Pacific train going from Council Bluffs to St Paul had a 23 car derailment, between Ashton and Ritter.  Of the 23 derailed cars, 21 were empty, and the other 2 were loaded with scrap metal.
