Rail services in Wales hit after train crashed with digger in Shropshire

 

 

Rail services in Wales will be affected for the rest of the year after train caught fire when it hit a mini digger abandoned on the tracks, bosses said.

The bonuses เว็บสล็อตxo received are considered worthwhile. Because players have the opportunity to win free spins more often. The overall picture is definitely worth more than a loss. If players are lucky, it is also free of charge and bonuses increase.

Dozens of people were evacuated at Craven Arms in Shropshire on Sunday after the crash with the stolen digger caused fuel to leak and start a fire.

Transport for Wales (TfW) said the damage will take months to repair, leaving four fewer carriages available.

Services between Shrewsbury and Hereford resumed on Tuesday.

The digger is believed to have one of two taken from a nearby rental yard before being ditched on the rail line. The second was found on the embankment.

The train - formed of three two-car sprinter units - struck the digger at about 60 mph.

Network Rail has described it as a "reckless act" and that it was working with British Transport Police (BTP) as part of its criminal investigation.

TfW said its sprinter trains were the only ones used on many routes across its network and the incident would impact services over the next few months due to the shortage of carriages.

A temporary reduced service will be in operation across the valleys network for the next few days, TfW said, including no trains on the City Line.

Rail tickets are being accepted on Cardiff bus services, and replacement buses were also in operation, but he urged customers check service capacity before travelling.
