Nagpur: Passengers of 02616 Delhi-Chennai-bound GT Express had a narrow escape when three coaches of the train got separated after central buffer coupling, which attaches the coaches to each other, snapped on Monday morning. The incident occurred at 9.10am on Monday between Narkhed and Tinkheda railway stations under the jurisdiction of Nagpur division of Central Railway. The train was running at 70 kmph when the coupling broke, separating the train from the last three coaches.
The train went 500 metres ahead followed by the three separated coaches. When the guard noticed, he alerted the driver and the train was stopped. A message was relayed to the control room at Nagpur and an accident relief van with carriage and wagon staff was despatched
and the problem was rectified.
“All passengers were safe and no damage to railway property was also reported. The train departed after an hour,” said ACM and Central Railway spokesperson SG Rao.
