Trains collision averted near Sealdah Station
Two passenger trains came face to face on Thursday at the outer signal of the Sealdah Railway Station in Kolkata, but a collision was averted as both were able to stop, Eastern railway sources said.
The driver of the Sealdah-Lalgola passenger train — which left platform 7 at the station at 8:10 a.m. — overshot the starter signal and entered the down main line at about 8:17 am, Eastern railway CPRO R.N. Mahapatra said.
