MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) — The movement of trains has been suspended in Karelia because of the washout of a railroad bed, the republican emergency department’s press service told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“A partial washout of the railroad bed has occurred between Sosnovets and Letniy of the Oktyabrskaya Railway Line. So, since 11.11 a.m. the movement of trains has been suspended on this section,” the press service said.
The length of the washout is of 30 metres and the depth is of 4-5 metres, the press service added.
In order to make repairs a wreck train has been sent from Kem. A train carrying crushed rock is being formed at the Sosnovets station. Platforms with rails have been sent from the stations of Belomorsk, Kem and Segezha.
“At present, the problem is being worked out to transport passengers by buses,” the press service said.
