Some real details final on what happened.

The train didn't fail, it stuck debris on the line somewhere beyond Sallins. It is not clear if it was vandalism or that the train sucked up a piece of track side rubbish. The resultant damage forced the train to halt. Sounds like a piece of rail or a temporary fish plate.

The train had a front facing camera so the facts can be confirmed
