Stalled Train At Finse
Author: mp16

An evening train to Oslo S seems to be having engine trouble. You can see this on the Finse Webcam.

Train 64 finally left Finse at 18:51 - 32 minutes late.  It originally stopped with the locomotive near the hotel - about half a train length west of the normal stopping point. 

After a few minutes, I noted a bright glow for a few seconds between the locomotive and the first passenger car, followed by a brief wisp of smoke rising from that location.  A short time later, several crew members were looking at that portion of the train. 

Then, about 18:40, the train moved forward about a half train length so the rear cars were along the platform.  After about 12 more minutes, it departed Finse.

There appears to be some catenary damage at the west end of the station platform. There's been a wire service car there for the last hour.
