MOSCOW, December 13 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s state railway corporation RZD had to reroute thirteen passenger trains in Southern Urals urgently to bypass lines Thursday due to an accident in the Chelyabinsk region, sources at the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass.
At 19:00 hours Moscow Standard Time, a total of 18 cargo coaches loaded with coal slid off the track at Flusovaya station, which is located on a highly busy line linking the cities of Chelyabinsk and Zlatoust.
“The accident resulted in damage to the roadbed and to a pylon of the catenary wiring,” a source at the EMERCOM said. “The RZD has had to reroute thirteen long-distance trains.”
No one was killed or injured and urgent repair works at the station began promptly.
EMERCOM’s regional branch dispatched an operative group to Flusovaya to establish the causes of the accident.
