The severe winter weather forces the commuter trains to operate on a reduced service for the third day in a row in Helsinki on Thursday, November 10.

The whirling snow causes some problems and even though the maintenance of the railroads has been improved, the snow, which gathers to the railroad switches, is causing trouble.

The poor weather affects services on the main line and coastal line. Trains to Helsinki Airport (Ring Rail Line) run as usual.
