if Emergency brake not taken by driver , half of the live saved. This is truth that normal train toppling cases fatalities is always less. After emergency brake , it is obvious that bogie will be collided with each other. Emergency brake is always convenient to the drivers because they know survival chances are more for them rather than passenger. remember i am not against driver but he should not have taken the emergency brake.

As per driver statement , he applied emergency brake due to panto big flash and when train stopped he observed bogie collided with each other. Emergency brake is always dangerous for long trains and this was the immediate reason and other reason was defective S2 bogie.

let CRS comes with enquiry report. We will have the answer for all qns.
I wont say emergency is dangerous. There were many occasions, during my travel, where emergency was applied due to chain pulling, when train was in full mps. Anyway will have to wait for final report to see, how much emergency contributed to this accident.

Chain pulling is not pure emergency brake. Engine emergency brake is different where engine stopped first and bogies later , in general chain pulling air released in certain bogies and brake applied

May be. But there are numerous incidents of emergency braking. Once an ALP whom i know, had to apply emergency brake since some idiots, parked their brake in railway track. It didn't cause derailment. Anyway, lets us wait for the report to come
