Ordinary wire and a couple of sheets of paper with “unusual” notes were able to stop a train in the Irkutsk region.

Stopped train

It is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to bazabazon.

The train, following the Bolshoy Lug – Goncharovo section, braked at about three in the morning after hitting a wire. This method is called shorting the track circuit – a stretched wire closes the automation, the railway track becomes “busy”, the train stops.

It happened this time as well. However, leaving the locomotive, in addition to the wire, the driver saw several notebook sheets with death wishes to Russians and other inscriptions.

After removing the wire and collecting notes, after a few minutes the driver continued on his way.

The unknown person, who pulled the wire and scattered the sheets, is now being searched for.
