There were several hundred passengers on board. Sitting carefree in their seats, they smelled a disturbing smell. It turned out that it was because of a torn traction network.

Train failure. Passengers evacuated

According to a woman who was on site, the cars smelled of burning and further travel was impossible. It was necessary to carry out a difficult evacuation and get as many as 200 people out of the machine. The fire brigade was also on site to make sure everything went as safely as possible.

Conductors also helped with the evacuation. Important announcements were made not to lean on the doors of the carriages, and especially not to open them. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and the passengers were transferred to another train, which arrived about 1.5 hours after the failure. “I was impressed by how smoothly the exit from the train went, all the passengers seemed very disciplined, conscientiously following the firefighters’ instructions,” reported the editor of the portal, present at the scene.
