Train chaos hits Sweden again

Swedish State Railway company SJ have been forced to pull all of its trains that aren't the express X2000, or double decker trains out of service. This is due to cracks discovered in two wheels, and now the wheels on all the trains of that type will have to be checked for safety reasons, SJ say.

The shortage of trains will cause serious delays for passengers Friday, they say, although they are trying to borrow trains from other companies to try to make up for the shortfall of carriages.
