Broken cable delays trains in central Sweden

There is a complete stop in the train traffic through Östergötland province affecting trains going from Malmö to Stockholm and all trains passing Norrköping.

The stop is a result of a broken wire between Norrköping and Mjölby and but representatives for Swedish Rail did not want to speculate in how long it would take to sort out the problem.

“Three out of four trains on their way from Malmö are stuck and will most likely be evacuated,” Thelma Henrysson, at Swedish Rail told new agency TT.

At least 1,0000 passengers are affected by the stop and this is likely to lead to further delays on other routes, according to Ulf Wallin, at Swedish Rail.

“We use the same trains… so a train that for example would have continued to Sundsvall will also be delayed.
