MOSCOW, August 20, /ITAR-TASS/. The supply of electricity has been fully restored on the railway leg between Dagomys and Sochi stations, a report on the Russian Railways Company (RZD) website announced on Wednesday. The interruption on August 17 was caused by a short-circuit and resulted in a delay of tens of trains.
The RZD report reads, "The supply of electricity on the Dagomys - Sochi railway leg (Krasnodar Territory) of the North Caucasian Railway was fully restored today, August 20, at 02:51, Moscow time. The supply was interrupted by a short-circuit in the trolley wire system. All the delayed trains have been sent to their destinations".
Owing to mass delays, many passengers decided to hand in their tickets or change them to other dates. An RZD official pointed out, "The cost of tickets was reimbursed in full without commission".
The short-circuit, caused by the rupture of the trolley wire, occurred at about 11:00, Moscow time on Sunday. Six trains awaited departure on the Dagomys - Sochi railway leg until 16:45 on Sunday. The passengers of the delayed trains disembarked and more than 2,500 people traveled to their destinations by buses.
Because of the breakdown, more than 40 trains on Tuesday ran from Adler with delays. Average idle time was about six hours.
