In March this year, a freight train derailed at Arna station on the Bergen Railway. This caused extensive damage to both trains and infrastructure.

After the accident, the passenger train with 200 people was left inside the Arnanipa tunnel.

The cause of the derailment is yet to be determined. Two people were given the status of suspicion within days of the accident.

But in the letter Bane sent to NOR, it appears the company wants to assess how much blame should be placed on Onrail, the company that owns the freight train.

– Indirect costs refer to consequential losses, in addition, some losses are specifically defined in contracts with railway companies, explains Ann Kirkusmo, reporter at Bane NOR. Technical Weekly (TU).

Being grossly negligent is a significant departure from normal, responsible behavior, Bane NOR emphasizes.

OneRail boss Henning Andal is not worried about the results of the investigation.

– Onrail knows the sequence of events well. The company did not act negligently, he tells TU.
