NORWAY - Smoke forces train evacuation

Passengers on a commuter train to Oslo had to be evacuated Thursday after motor failure sent smoke billowing into the carriages. NSB played down the incident, say it seemed more dramatic than it was.

Passengers were reportedly shook up by the event, but there was no panic after the train limped into Bryn station. NSB arranged bus transport from Bryn.

The incident occurred on board a train from LillestrÝm to Asker.
