Thanks for the news post. It is a very depressing event to read about such mishaps.
As I pointed out before, rails 'can' fail even if they are manufactured with the best quality! As Sanjay sir explained clearly, there are so many factors that affect the rail's performance other than manufacturing quality. Let's wait for more data before making conclusions. The rail failure in this case could have happened due to old rail being used, or improper bolting of rails and many other more likely reasons.

Thanks for your patience and explanation. According to arguments manufacturing defects are least to bother for the cause of fracture. It is the maintenance of rail and rolling, and overloading of goods train cause the major damage to rail. It is really alarming that due to shear negligence of railways, fracture occurs, which could be one of the major reasons for derailment. Let me see how many of us disagree!! Thanks!!!
