MOSCOW, March 18 (Itar-Tass) – The train traffic is restored in the Amur Region, after it was disrupted by the derailment of the wagons of the freight train, the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The down train traffic was restored at 09:40 Moscow time on the Trans-Baikal Railway. The traffic of the passenger trains resumed,” a source in the Ministry of Emergency Situations said.
Four wagons of the freight train derailed at 06:25 Moscow time on Monday in the Seryshevo district of the Amur Region.
“The refrigerator car, three tanks and a wagon loaded with coal derailed in the Seryshevo district in the Amur Region. The railway incident occurred seven kilometres away from the settlement Seryshevo. The train was en route from Irkutsk to Khabarovsk,” the Trans-Baikal transport police department reported. The transport police department reported that the wagons derailed on the Trans-Baikal Railway due to the breakage of the wheel-pair disc, according to the preliminary version.
No people were injured in the railway incident.
This is already the tenth case of derailed wagons on the Trans-Baikal Railway in 2013, taking into account the railway incidents in the Trans-Baikal Territory and the Amur Region.
