Alert loco pilot averts train tragedy in Mansa

Mansa, December 10

An alert loco pilot averted a possible accident when he applied emergency brakes to stop the Awadh Assam Express after noticing a rail fracture in the railway track near the Narinderpura railway station in Mansa district on Wednesday night.

The incident took place around 11 pm near the Narinderpura railway station when the train was coming from Dibrugarh (in Assam) to the Lalgarh station in Rajasthan via Mansa and Bathinda.

The driver said he felt unusual jerks when the train engine passed through the fractured point. He immediately applied emergency brakes and informed the Railways authorities about it. When it was checked, a big gap in the railway track was found due to a fracture. Railways officials will conduct a probe into the matter to ascertain the exact reason behind it. — TNS
