Date of occurrence:


Derailment of freight train between Kummelby and Häggvik

A northbound freight train loaded with new passenger cars derailed on the Kummelby-Häggvik section. There are signs of previous cracking in the rails at the site and there appears to have been, or occurred, a break on the right-hand rail in the direction of travel. Over eight meters of the rail broke when the train passed. Several of the train's wheel axles derailed. The material damage to the infrastructure was extensive.
