Train coach derails at Sealdah, long-distance services delayed


Kolkata, Oct 31: A number of trains, including the Darjeeling Mail, were on Sunday delayed by over two to three hours after a coach of the Rampurhat-Sealdah Ma Tara Express derailed on the way to the car shed at Sealdah station, Eastern Railway officials said.

After the passengers of Ma Tara Express had disembarked at Sealdah, the train was being moved to the car shed when one of its coaches derailed, blocking the 9A and 9B platforms that handle many of the long-distance services.
