KOLKATA: Nearly 950 passengers on the 12246 Yeshwantpur-Howrah Express were stranded on Friday at the Chilka station in Odisha after torrential rains led to inundation of tracks.
About 450 passengers of the 02507 Chennai-Kamakhya Special met with the same fate between the Chilka and Khallikote stations. Unable to run the trains, East Coast Railway officials were forced to evacuate the passengers and ferry them by bus to a railhead that has still not been affected.
The Duronto Express passengers will reach Howrah on Saturday by a special train that will then proceed to

Guwahati with those from the Kamakhya-bound special train. According to South Eastern Railway (SER) officials, train running towards southern India became difficult since Wednesday evening due to inundation of tracks. In many places, there is nearly two feet of water on the tracks, the officials said. As a result, many trains are being run through diverted routes.
"The Duronto Express was caught in the deluge on Wednesday. The Howrah-bound train was caught in a similar situation on Friday. The Kamakhya Special was sent back to the Khallikote station. Both Chilka and Khallikote have become inundated. The only approach is by road. Finally, ECoR officials got in touch with the Odisha government and private bus operators. Help was also taken from INS Chilka, the naval establishment in the area. Finally, several buses were arranged to ferry the passengers of the two trains to the Sulari station," a railway official said.
Sulari is the last station beyond Khurda Road to which trains are still running. This is also a two-line roadside station which doesn't have adequate facilities for the nearly 1,500 passengers. ECoR arranged for an empty rake at Sulari to run up to Guwahati. This train was named the Guwahati Special via Howrah. The train finally left the station around 8.05 pm. It takes about one and a half hours for a train to reach Bhubaneswar from Sulari.
"We decided to bring the special train to Bhubaneswar as the passengers need to have dinner. At Bhubaneswar, there will be another special train waiting. This will run up to Howrah. After dinner, passengers who wish to board this train to Howrah can do so. The Guwahati special will also pass through Howrah. Both trains will reach Howrah early on Saturday. The situation at Bhubaneswar is bad as well due to the incessant rain," a senior officer of ECoR said.
