Train derails on world heritage Kalka Shimla railway track

Solan, Feb 23 (UNI) The movement of all trains remained suspended for over four hours after the Workman Special train derailed on the World Heritage Kalka-Shimla railway section in the forenoon near Barog on Tuesday.
The accident took place at Barog railway station located between Kalka and Shimla at around 1100 hrs, when the train was on way from Kalka to Shimla. As soon as this train reached near Barog railway station with the railway staff and drinking water tanks, the tires of one compartment slid down from the tracks, threatening to overturn the train. However, the timely action of the train driver helped in controlling engine.
Seeing the seriousness of the matter, Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Gurvindra Mohan Singh from Ambala also reached on the mishap site and took stock of the situation. Accidental van and a relief engine from Kalka narrow gauge shed reached Barog to repair the track and the track was repaired after reaching here.
