VADODARA: A goods train got derailed near Karjan railway station in Vadodara district on Monday evening. The derailment disrupted rail traffic between Vadodara and Mumbai. Several passengers got stranded on Vadodara railway station due to delay in train schedule.
According to railway officials, three containers of a goods train got derailed at around 5 pm on Monday in the common loop line.
"As these three containers - 11, 12 and 13 - got derailed, the train hit an overhead electricity pole which powers the train engine," said a senior railway official of Vadodara railway division, who had rushed to the spot for restoration work.
The containers that got derailed were empty. "While traffic movement on the downline has been restored, we are expecting the upline to get restored by night," the official said, adding that on the downline two trains including the Dahod-Valsad intercity and the Bangalore Express were allowed to move after the line was cleared for traffic.
While trains on the downline got delayed by over an hour, officials were expecting the upline traffic to be restored at around 9 pm.
It is pertinent to mention here that this is the third such derailment incident in the past three months in the region. On June 4, a goods train had got derailed at Godhra yard in Panchmahal district. Earlier, on May 20, railway traffic had got adversely affected after the Dehradun Express derailed near Godhra yard.
