    • The Nevsky Express train derailed in Novgorod Region at 9.38 pm, local time, as it was traveling at 180 kph with 231 passengers and 21 train crew members on board. The bomb was placed about 30 meters ahead of a bridge over the Chernaya River. The explosion happened under the locomotive. The blast tore 75-centimer rail and sent it through the cabin’s floor, nearly missing the engineer and shooting up through the roof.

      The locomotive went off the tracks but stayed on the railroad embankment thanks to flange rails on the bridge between the main rails. The train crossed the bridge, leaning on the flange rail before the train’s heaviest dining-car with refrigerating equipment and water supplies tipped onto its side. The train traveled a further 750 meters after the blast, tearing track in the area and overhead wiring.

      The Nevsky Express’s passengers say that the train was jolting a lot during the incident, and the window panes were smashed by gravel. “I saw a pair of wheels under the car crash into the floor and actually pierce into our compartment,” Andrey Vlasov, a train conductor, said in an interview with Kommersant newspaper. “I scarcely had time to jump away.”

      As soon as the train came to a standstill, the train crew and passengers rushed to the dining-car and nearby cars. They smashed the glass to help out those in the cars as the doors were locked. Several passengers on board were doctors and were able to provide first aid. Those in the dining-car were all covered in blood as they got cut by smashed crockery. “Vodka saved us,” Andrey Vlasov recalls. “We would damp tissues in it and wipe each other’s faces and hands.” Andrey had his arms up to the elbow covered in blood.
