Today in the afternoon the railroad has been cleared so I think services returned normal.
Officially the cause of the fall has been wind but I had an interesting chat with a person very inside on this business and seems that the real cause has been the fault of maintenance; the hanging between the column and the panel has been corroded by the nice Lima weather.
More, that advertising apparatus has not any permission or licence to be there.
But the worst thing is that Lima administration is checking the more or less 500 advertising posts in the metropolitan area and only 32 resulted regular with all the permissions and structural approvals!

Ciao :wink:
