on Saturday, a Southern Railway spokesman said. Following the incident, buses and local trains were arranged to ferry the stranded passengers to Kochi and Thrissur.
The cause of the derailment has not been confirmed yet but it is suspected to be due to a broken rail. A possible major collision was also averted as the Chennai-Trivandrum train coming towards Ernakulam was stopped
around 300 metres away from the accident spot following a timely alert, railway official said. “We alerted the incoming train and it was stopped about 300 metres away. This was an achievement of the railways safety measures,” the official said.
The 12 coaches tilted over the rails onto the ballast rather than overturn.

Ramachandran, a ticket examiner, said he heard a loud noise at the time of the derailment and passengers panicked. It was raining heavily when the incident occurred, he said.
A railways release announced helpline numbers:

AURANGABAD: The Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti on Saturday said the railways should ensure a new route along the Rotegoan-Kopargaon stretch ahead of Saibaba's Samadhi centenary celebrations in 2018.
"The state should meets the demand for the new rail line as a large number of devotees will visit Shirdi on Saibaba's Samadhi centenary celebrations," Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti founder president Omprakash Verma said.
He said Railway authorities should lay the much-needed rail route, which will be technically feasible, cost-effective and provide respite to thousands of devotees visiting Shirdi.

said, "The survey of the new route should be conducted well before December 2016 so that the actual work of laying the tracks could begin in 2017. Technically, this project should be successful as the route would bypass Manmad station. Trains passing through Aurangabad will reach Shirdi fast. At present, the trains have to pass through Manmad. It's a longer route."
The association also said the Railways should meet the long-pending demands of Solapur-Paithan-Aurangabad-Ajanta route at the earliest.
"In 2000, a survey was conducted for a rail route in the Aurangabad region. Those surveys revealed that these projects will be very expensive and a bridge will have to be constructed on Godavari River. We believe there is no need for a survey for the same routes again. The authorities should rather focus on conducting a survey and laying new line between Rotegoan and Kopargaon," he said.

Representatives of the DMK, Congress, Manithaneya Makkal Katchi, VCK, Dravidar Kazhagam, and other parties as also social outfits participated in the deliberations.
