Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani Express engine, coach derail

Third train accident in a day, goods train derailed in Khandala

The engine and power auto of Rajdhani Express travelling from Ranchi to New Delhi were derailed from the track near Shivaji Bridge in Delhi.

The train was running at a speed of about 40 km per hour which, officials say, prevented any injuries when the incident occurred.

Railway officials said the driver of the Ranchi Rajdhani heard a cracking sound just as the train was changing tracks after which the engine and generator bogey were derailed.

"We felt a sudden jerk when the train was about to reach New Delhi railway station". Earlier in the day, seven coaches of Shaktipunj Express, coming from Howrah in West Bengal and headed to Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, derailed near Sonbhadra in Uttar Pradesh. According to railway officials, the incident occurred near Obara around 6 am.
