Many people think that Swiss trains are safe. They think the trains work very well. The Swiss people like to ride trains in Switzerland.

However, a train crash happens. A commuter train crashes with a high-speed train. Some parts of the trains come off the train tracks. The trains do not fall over.

People from the trains get help. Other people close some of the train tracks.

Difficult words: commuter train (a train for people who go a long way to work), high-speed train (when a train goes very fast), train track (a train runs on top of these two metal lines).

Are trains safe where you live?
