Thrissur: Four wagons of a goods train
carrying petroleum products derailed at the Manapady railway
crossing near Kalletumkara railway station this morning.

The Goods wagon was on its way to Kannur from Ernakulam,
railway sources said.

Railway sources said that there was some leakage from
one of the boggies and the driver had applied sudden brake
following which four wagons derailed.

The Overhead Railway electric line has been switched off
and efforts are on to transfer the petroleum products of the
derailed wagons to other wagons.
