Freight train derails and catches fire in central Sweden

Tags: ,


A train carrying dangerous goods derailed and caught fire in central Sweden in mid-October.
The 36-carriage train was derailed by the station in Ludvika, Dalarna, bringing train traffic to a stop.
“It’s a long freight train and one of the carriages was on fire, with ten-metre high flames. The fire seems to have extinguished itself,” Peter Persson, a local police officer who was on duty at the time, told TT.

The accident caused disruption to traffic between Borlänge and Hallsberg, Borlänge and Kil, and Västerås and Ludvika in both directions, according to the Swedish Transport Administration.
