At approximately 12 PM today, the track was certified ‘fit’ after undergoing thorough checks and safety assessments. To further verify the track’s stability and safety parameters, a locomotive was immediately run on the track for an engine rolling test. The successful test provided reassurance that the tracks were in optimal condition to resume train services.
As a result of these efforts, train services have now resumed in the affected region. At about 3.30 PM, a Goods train was run down the Ghat as a preliminary step towards restoring normal operations. However, in an abundance of caution, a speed restriction of 10 kmph has been imposed for the time being to ensure safe travel for passengers.
