The Dutch Safety Board has investigated the train accident in Stavoren that took place late in the evening on Sunday 25 July 2010. Upon arrival at the final destination of Stavoren station, a SPENO rail grinder, which had been commissioned by ProRail for rail grinding work on the track, drove through the buffer at high speed. The rail grinder then skidded across the platform, collided with an empty tanker and subsequently slid straight through a water sports shop. The train travelled approximately 70 metres before coming to a stop in a square. Four people were present in the train. Two of them suffered minor injuries. At the time of the accident, there were no people in the shop or in the square. The material damage is extensive. In the hours following the accident in Stavoren, the Board spoke with those directly involved and secured investigation data.
