  • Description

    AN IMPORTANT RAILWAY ACROSS THE TYROLEAN ALPS IN AUSTRIA HAS BEEN CLOSED BY A LANDSLIDE. A TRAIN, TRAVELLING ALONG THE LINE, WHICH LINKS ZURICH IN SWITZERLAND WITH VIENNA, RAN INTO THE LANDSLIDE ON WEDNESDAY. NO-ONE WAS HURT, BUT SEVERAL OF THE CARRIAGES WERE TURNED OVER.

    THE LANDSLIDE WAS CAUSED BY THE ANNUAL SPRING THAW IN THE ALPS. WHEN WORKMEN BEGAN THE JOB OF CLEARING THE LINE OF THE WRECKED TRAIN THEY DISCOVERED THAT MUCH OF THE TRACK HAD BEEN UNDERMINED BY WATER.

    THEY NOW BELIEVE THAT IT MAY BE SOME DAYS BEFORE IMPORTANT TRANS-EUROPEAN EXPRESSES WILL BE ABLE TO USE THIS ROUTE. IN THE MEANTIME, TRAINS FROM VIENNA TO PARIS VIA BASLE ARE HAVING TO TRAVEL A ROUNDABOUT ROUTE THROUGH THE SOUTHERN PART OF GERMANY. THEY ARE ARRIVING AT THEIR DESTINATION MANY HOURS LATE.
