Railcar shortage after train blaze forces cancellations

Following last Tuesday’s fire in a train south of Netanya, now thought to have been caused by a mechanical fault, Israel Railways has taken all railcars of this type out of service. As a result, there is a serious shortage of rolling stock, and until further notice there will be no trains on the following lines: Hod Hasharon- Tel Aviv-Rishonim; Beersheba North-Dimona; Tel Aviv- Ramle-Beit Shemesh-Jerusalem; Haifa Hof Hacarmel- Kiryat Motzkin.
Passengers who bought monthly or weekly season tickets for these lines will be able to get a refund at stations. For updates on the situation, see or call *5770.
