at a safe distance.
The water wagon train, used for transporting water from Jolarpet to Chennai, had to be stopped near Zafrabad in Katpadi due to a signal fault. Since the special train has locomotives on both sides, it would have appeared as if a head-on collision were averted, a railway official said.
The MEMU motorman stopped the train on seeing the train ahead on the same track from a distance. He was asked by officials to wait for water train to receive clearance to run. During this time, commuters took pictures and videos to spread the message through social media, said an official.
Both trains were cleared towards Arakkonam after Railways attended to the signal blocks in Zafrabad, sources from Southern Railway clarified.
