Bern-Fribourg closed due to derailment

Martin Baumann

A freight train has derailed 300m east of Bern Ausserholigen. Bern to Fribourg is expected to be closed until at least 1500 Swiss time.

The train consisted of an Re 4/4 II, two NDW double deck coaches, (series 50 85 26-73 xxx) that were probably on delivery from Bombardier Villeneuve, and four wagons. It is reported the NDW next to the loco derailed.
