Trains delayed after IT glitch hits rail services in SwedenStaff Writer | October 11, 2017
Train passengers suffered delays morning after an IT glitch affected railway traffic across large parts of Sweden.
"We're driving manually now. It then takes longer to manage the traffic and that causes delays," Trafikverket press officer Bengt Olsson told Swedish news agency TT.
The IT system was back up and running by 7.30am, but knock-on delays were to be expected.
It is not yet known what caused the problem, which also affected Trafikverket's ability to send e-mails to update customers on the delays.
Its website was also down in the morning. Travellers are urged to contact their train company for information about delays. ■
