Goods train derails in Guwahati



Guwahati: Twenty stone-laden wagons of a goods train derailed Wednesday at Lakwa in upper Assam's Sibsagar district, disrupting train movement on the Tinsukia- Namrup-Simaluguri route.

Northeast Frontier Railway Spokesman said the goods train jumped the tracks and the 20 wagons rolled down at Lakwa station around 4.45 am. There was no report of any injury or casualty.

The derailed wagons blocked the main railway line causing the Delhi-Dibrugarh 4056 up Brahmaputra Mail and local 5603 up Inter City Express to be diverted through Moranhat in the district.

Running of trains was suspended between Tinsukia-Namrup-Simaluguri, he said, adding, restoration work was on for repairing the tracks.
