A freight train without a driver

This is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to Railinsider.

The “runaway” train with 22 wagons left the Kosice-Barka station on January 10. After crossing the border with Hungary, they tried to stop him, but unsuccessfully. In the end, the train stopped between Gidasnemeti and Zhuyta stations. It is noted that no one was injured in the incident.

However, in order to clarify all the circumstances of the incident, the Hungarian Railway temporarily closed the railway line between Gidasnemeti and Abauysanto.
