    1 person was killed on a graveyard for trains in Nijmegen, Netherlands in an explosion. They try sell those trains (or even have) it to Romania.

    Rumours have it that someone took their own life there but nothing confirmed yet. Some nearby residents said the place 'smelled like fireworks' after the explosion... not a smell you'd associate with an on-train explosion.
