On the night of Thursday, May 30, at the Gorely station of the Trans-Baikal Railway, the diesel locomotive of the passenger train No. 326 Nerungri-Khabarovsk caught fire. The burning locomotive was uncoupled and transported to a safe distance from passenger cars. During the incident, no one was hurt.

A fire train from Skovorodino station was involved in extinguishing the locomotive. After the fire was eliminated, the burned-out locomotive was replaced by another one, and the train continued on its route, to Khabarovsk.

According to the press service of ZHZHD, the train was behind the schedule on 2 hours of 45 minutes. Dispatchers take action to reduce latency. The causes of the ignition of the locomotive are now being established.
