The Arriva train that derailed near Groningen station on Sunday evening was put back on the rails on Monday evening and pushed back to the platform, ProRail reports.

The railway manager started repairing the damaged track around 11 p.m.

ProRail hoped to resume the timetable around 5 a.m. on Tuesday, but this has now been postponed to 9 a.m.

Buses are being used.

The train ran late on Sunday evening when it left the direction of Roodeschool for unknown reasons, with a number of wheels out of the track.

Passengers had to be evacuated, no one was injured.

Due to the derailment, no train traffic was possible between Groningen and Zuidhoorn and between Groningen and Groningen Noord/Delfzijl on Monday.

ProRail says it is carrying out a "thorough investigation" into the cause of the derailment.


Great work by our colleagues from @ICB_ProRail.

Thanks to their technical expertise, the train could be driven back to the platform.

And that's what it looks like.
