Train crash at Izmir

A main line loco hit suburban train at Izmir yesterday evening. No death or injuries reported.

The TCDD loco (33042), hit the Izban suburban train from behind at 20:25. The loco was going from Halkapinar to Alsancak for the traction of Konya Mavi while the Izban train was going to Alsancak Station from Hilal Station. Preliminary analysis tell that loco ignored the stop signal while entering the Alsancak station.

The last unit of Izban train and loco were derailed due to crash. Izban trains continue service without calling at Alsancak Station for the time being. There’s a shuttle service between Alsancak and Halkapinar.
