Mumbai : Fire in Goods Train : Trains Cancelled : 09.11.2018

Two wagons of a goods train caught fire near Dahanu in Maharashtra’s Palghar district late on Thursday night, affecting the movement of local as well as long-distance trains on the line, police said on Friday. Railway Protection Force inspector Mahendra Singh said the goods train containing plastic granules was coming from Surat towards Uran in Raigad district and the incident occurred 6km from Vangaon station at around 10:45pm.

Singh said the 15th and 16th wagons caught fire after the overhead wire snapped and fell on the moving train. The Western Railway immediately turned off the power supply and halted both up and down traffic, he added. “The fire was caused due to sparks from the overhead wire as it carries around 25,000 V current and huge balls of fire were seen,” Singh said.
