Missing train 953 Vorkuta-Labytnagi has been found in Yamalo-Nenetski District of Russia.

The train was found stuck in drifting snow.
Rescue brigades flew to the accident site and got the train out of the snow. Three bulldozers and snow-plough vehicle were working on the site. Blizzard with wind speed 30 meters per second made their work extremely difficult.

The rail traffic in the Polar Urals has been restored.

Earlier, another Moscow-Labytnagi passenger train arrived in its destination with 24 hour delay. The train got stuck in snowdrifts as well.
