According to Artamonov, three pylons of the trolley system were damaged at the railway leg between Nakhodka Boets (trooper) Kuznetsov at the 157th km of Far East railroad. The repair work is involving considerable resources, including maintenance trains from Partizansk, Ussuriisk, and Pervaya Rechka Stations.
