Derailing causes eight-hour delay on Prague-České Budějovice line

Services on the Prague to České Budějovice line were interrupted for around eight hours on Tuesday after a train was derailed. It is not yet clear why a train went off the tracks between Benešov and Tábor, though a broken rail has not been ruled out. Trains later slowed down at the spot where the derailing occurred as a precaution, a spokesperson for Czech Railways said.
