A Big tragedy has stuck the legendary Coromandel Express and SVMB HWH SF along with a freight.

There has been nunerous blogs out here blaming every authority for this accident but I wonder : How did the accident happen in the first place?
What went wrong? Why so much of. Negativity being channeled without actually knowing all the facts.

If we are to blame Indian Railways as a whole for the entire accident then we also have to consider how much lives were saved due to shift from ICF to LHB. How many lives were saved by the LPs/ALPs of both the trains.

Yes, Railways are surely to blame for its a train accident but there are many things beyond its control. Raising Speeds or Congestion or Running VBEs can't be a factor for there have been accidents with high speed trains worldwide.

I feel the enquiry will primary revolve around Asset Maintenance which will include Pway, Coaches, Rails etc. Lets await the complete details before jumping into conclusions.

But now my condolences to the bereaved families. Hope others are safe and my prayers for their safe and fast rescue.

Let us hope that this calamity becomes a catalyst for reinforcing newer and more stringent safety standards, just like the derailment of 12301 near Sasaram.
Too bad, all of these have had to happen over the blood of innocent human beings, who just wanted to reach their destinations !

I am also getting a nagging feeling of a Sabotage ... Some pics point out to that like the angle of bend of rail tracks for instance ..

I only pray its not the case ..

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
