(AP) -

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says a conductor on a scenic Colorado train died when she was run over by the train as it was backing up.

The sheriff's office issued a statement on its Facebook page saying 28-year-old Leslie Cacy was standing near the rear of the train Saturday evening when she fell as the train was backing up to the station about four miles away.

The sheriff's office says no foul play is suspected.

Train service was suspended while the accident is being investigated.

The Royal Gorge is about 10 miles long, with the Arkansas River running through it and the railroad running along its banks.
