Monday morning, Shanghai-Nanjing high-speed railway’ equipment sudden failed between Shanghai to Nanxiang, causing G7363, D5401 and other five different trains behind the schedule. G7003 train stopped near Huaqiao up to half an hour.
A netizen, named “辣笔小球” on the Weibo, posted that “G7003 stopped about twenty minutes for no reason in the Shanghai-Nanjing line”. He also said that G7003’ parking was non-normal stop, and the train crew said that the train cannot receive the signals, “in the carriage, a child was scared to cry, and a middle-aged woman have a sudden headache. But no staffs appease the passengers during twenty minutes. The radio confirmed signal failure at twenty-seven minute”. Meanwhile, a passenger tried to break the window but was blocked by the crew.
Shanghai railway bureau responded that G7003 did appear to delay. It must punctuality arrive at Shanghai station at 9:27, but the actual time was 10:01, about half an hour late. The cause was due to a little failure of the equipments.
