Russia train crash 'caused by bomb'

If this is terrorism then whoever planted the bomb hit Russia in an extremely vulnerable place. Russia has an extensive rail system and Russians are much more used to rail travel than travel by plane. I have taken this train and it is one of the nicer, and quicker, trains. I traveled a few times from Moscow to Saratov, about 600 miles, and that trip took 20 hours. Of course, it was a sleeper but it was pretty tiny by my standards.

A plane crash can slow down travel but it won't completely stop travel between two cities. Terror attacks on rail can. This is a nightmare for Russian security.
