Russian Railways has reported that train traffic has been restored between the stations of Unecha and Rassukha in the Bryansk region after a freight train derailed there yesterday, the company’s Telegram channel says.
“The train traffic between Unecha and Rassukha was restored at 4.53 Moscow time. It was interrupted on 1 May due to a train derailing there, caused by an unlawful intervention in the railway operations,” the statement says.
The company says 300 railroad workers and 3 emergency trains took part in the repairs. Around 100 metres of rails was newly constructed on the site.
A freight train partially went off the rails in Russia’s Bryansk region yesterday after an improvised explosive device detonated.
“In the Unecha district, an unidentified explosive device detonated at the Bryansk-Unecha track, causing a freight train’s locomotive to derail,” the Bryansk region governor Alexander Bogomaz said.
He later clarified that two locomotives and seven carriages derailed, luckily causing no injuries.
