Officials say several of the train cars were carrying flammable gas and liquids.

The train -- which was heading from Barstow to Stockton -- was back up and running around 5 p.m., but traffic delays were still being reported an hour after that.

Amtrak officials say train #715 to Oakland was delayed by an hour and a half.
