IRKUTSK, December 6 (Itar-Tass) – An estimated eight freight coaches carrying coal went off the track at the Lena-Chudnichny section of the Baikal Amur Mainline /BAM/ Tuesday morning, the corporate communications service of the East-Siberian branch of the Russian Railways told Itar-Tass.
“There are no victims and no danger for the ecology,” a railway spokesman said. “Traffic at that section of the mainline has been suspended.”
Repair trains from another three BAM stations have been dispatched to the spot of the accident and a special commission led by Acting Director of the East-Siberian railway branch, Nikolai Maklygin, has been set up.
