Two compartments of an Electrical Multiple Unit (EMU) were gutted in a fire at a railway car shed near Velachery railway station on Tuesday evening.
Police sources said that a group of men were engaged in welding at the yard to dismantle the compartments and remove parts to be disposed of as scrap.
Sparks from the welding rod came into contact with engine oil leaking from the coach, resulting in the fire. Before workers could react and put out the fire, two compartments were gutted. However, no one was injured in the incident,
sources added.

As a standard procedure, inflammable substances are not allowed to be stored/ kept near the welding spot.
Loss of EMU coaches is a direct consequence of negligence, welders have to be properly trained about safety and their supervisor have to ensure that the safety rules are being taken care of.
Thank God, there was no loss of life.
Motto should be- "Safety
is First and work is a must"

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
