Chandigarh, Nov 12: A train engine on Sunday derailed in Rewari, Haryana after plying for 2 kilometres without a driver after its brake levers were jammed. The 2 drivers had jumped out of the engine after the levers were jammed, reported news agency ANI. No loss of life was reported in this incident.
The engine is a 65-years-old steam locomotive engine called “Akbar” which has featured in more than 20 Bollywood films including Sultan’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Rang De Basanti’, suggest reports. The spokesperson of Railways said that an inquiry has been ordered by the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM).
loco was not being used for hauling any train when the incident happened. Officers and staff were immediately rushed to carry out re-railing operations,” he said.
The engine was named after the great Mughal Emperor, Akbar. It is one of the oldest steam locomotives of the railways. It was built by the Chittaranjan Locomotive Works and was inducted into service in 1965.
On November 10, a similar incident was reported from Kalaburagi, Karnataka where the engine travelled for about 13 kms without a loco pilot. This incident took place after the Chennai-Mumbai train arrived at Wadi junction around 3 PM on November 7 and halted for the diesel engine to be attached to the bogies as the route from Wadi to Solapur in Maharashtra is not electrified, railway officials said.
The officials said that diesel engine was attached to the Mumbai train which left for Solapur on its onward journey from Wadi but due to a slip-up the electric engine started moving on its own after the loco pilot alighted from it.
