KHABAROVSK, February 13 (Itar-Tass) — There was a rail incident in the Amur region on Monday. A freight train derailed at the Ust-Pera station en route from Tynda to Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the Svobodny department of the Trans-Baikal Railway (TransSib) told Itar-Tass.

As a result, train traffic on the emergency section of the TransSib was suspended. A repair train team from the Shimanovskaya station is working at the site.

According to the preliminary information, the incident could have been caused by a warped bogie frame of a rail car.

It has been a second incident on a section of the Trans-Siberian Railway in the Amur region over the past two weeks. On January 31, there was a derailment of 17 oil tank cars near the Novobureysky settlement. That incident was also caused by a bogie defect.
