Rourkela: In a shocking incident, as many as three trains have been spotted on one track in Rourkela of Sundargarh district in Odisha.
The incident has been reported between Rourkela and Panposh stations. This has allegedly occurred due to the automatic signaling system that has been put to use. All the three trains on the track are passenger trains.
It is further worth mentioning that there is nothing to be scared in this arrangement. Three trains on One track will not be an issue. The same has been assured by Rourkela Railway Station Manager Prabhas Das.
The East Coast Railway has been diligently implementing the Automatic Signalling System in various railway sections. In the incident captured in the video, it appears that a MEMU train is stationed on the same route in front of another passenger Train.
It should be clear that both the trains are moving in the same direction. It is also crucial to understand how the Automatic Signalling System plays a pivotal role in ensuring safety in such situations.
The ‘On’ position of an Automatic Signal can result from various factors, such as the presence of a train ahead, an obstruction on the track, or other causes. In such cases, drivers are instructed to proceed at a restricted speed, never exceeding 15 KMPH, even if visibility is clear. They must continue with caution, be prepared to stop, and follow any potential instructions until reaching the obstruction or the next automatic signal, depending on the circumstances.
We wish to assure the public that trains operating within the Automatic Signalling System are moving at permissible speeds and with rigorous safety measures in place. Trains can operate at restricted speeds within close proximity to each other, maintaining the utmost safety.
We kindly appeal to all concerned not to panic or spread misinformation, as the trains are running in accordance with safety protocols and permissible speeds. We encourage responsible reporting by all news channels and request that you provide accurate information to the public regarding railway operations and safety measures.
