Train derailment Hilversum

Status : Closed

On Wednesday 15 January 2014 an intercity train derailed when it passed a switch shortly after leaving Hilversum station. After the first section of the train had travelled in a straight direction over the switch, the rear section of the train was suddenly directed onto the adjacent track, as a result of which the train derailed. A train travelling in the opposite direction was brought to a standstill in time to avoid a collision. As the failure of a switch can result in a major accident, the Safety Board initiated an investigation.
