Scene outside the Riverbanks Zoo on November 29, 2012.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A train had a mishap in front of the Riverbanks Zoo's main entrance Thursday afternoon, closing one of the park's attractions for the night.

Columbia police say two cars got disconnected from a CSX train late Thursday. Columbia Police Spokesperson Jennifer Timmons says there was no derailment.

Traffic was blocking the entrance for a time, but crews were able to connect the cars to the train and it began moving again.

Because of the incident, the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens closed their Lights Before Christmas exhibit for the night. It will be open Friday.
