Eight trains canceled, 10 swerved due to landslides
The Mehedinti Rail Transports Police chief, Ion Cotarta, on Sunday told that the said phenomenon affected the railway on several tens of meters. “The landslide was perceived by the engine driver of the Intercity 594 passenger train, which had took off from Drobeta-Turnu Severin to Bucharest. The 40 passengers were brought back to the railway station and shipped to buses”, Cotarta added.
According to CFR Calatori, the passenger trains will reach their destinations 120-minute in delay against their usual schedule, because of their circulation on the detour routes.
