Our new light-rail crashed before opening

A few days before our new light-rail system Bybanen in our city were supposed to open it crash and derail!

This is tragic, lots of people were against building this system and now they are laughing – I can’t believe how cruel people can be. On the display it says “Practice driving”. I am glad this didn’t happen on the opening day, several kindergartens are supposed to be passengers on the first trip.

Here are more photos from the crash:

Something happened during trail-change and one of them ran i the wrong direction, and then… bang.

Its sad that they have to start their carrer by reparing those. I wonder if they make it before the opening.

Now the fire department are trying to get it on tracks again:

    “Stolte” og “stolte” fru Blom. Tipper debatten raser i kommentarfeltene på ba.no og bt.no 🙂

    Leser dette mens Moby sin extreme ways går i bakgrunnen. “Then it fell apart, like it always does, then it fell apart”.

    Aldri forstått hvorfor man ikke puttet hjul på de i stedenfor?
    hadde vel vært mye mer praktisk og mye billigere?..Kan noen si meg det?
