600 people stranded in a train for almost two hours close to Brussels

The train made the connection between Ostend and Eupen.

A Following a collision with an unknown object, a train remained immobilized for nearly two hours between Dilbeek and Bruxelles-Midi, with around 600 people on board, SNCB said on Saturday.

The train, which ran between Ostend and Eupen, stopped around 5:50 p.m. A technical control had to be operated.

“The train was able to leave around 8:00 pm,” said a spokesperson. Due to the delay, however, it stopped at Bruxelles-Midi, where travelers could take another train to Eupen.

No train is running for the moment on the line concerned because the police still have to go there. The impact remains limited between Ghent and Brussels, according to SNCB.

Trains were diverted via Jette and Denderleeuw.

Passengers may request compensation provided for in these cases.
