Train delays after signalling relays stolen

Trains on the route Ploiesti-Bucharest, heading to the capital’s Gara de Nord or Basarab stations, had delays of up to 200 minutes after several signalling relays were stolen, HotNews said. But passenger railway company CFR Calatori said the delays were not longer than 40-50 minutes. “Between 6 and 8 a.m., trains that arrived or left Bucharest Nord station had delays of 25-30 minutes per train in average. Following an increase in railway traffic after 8 a.m., the delays (…) were of 40-50 minutes per train in average,” a press release from the company said.

It added that intervention teams were deployed immediately to address the technical malfunctions. The company also apologised to passengers for any inconvenience created by the incident.

However, HotNews insisted that trains had significantly longer delays, some of them stationing midway between Bucharest and Ploiesti for more than an hour.
