TORONTO, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Two of five derailed crude tank cars in a New Brunswick train accident are older DOT-111 models, a Canadian National Railway spokesman said on Thursday, citing information it received from the Association of American Railroads.

Three of the five derailed crude tank cars are newly built DOT-111 models that conform with the higher standards ordered after October 2011, CN said.
