Stone chunks hit Vande Bharat Express!


The Vande Bharat Express, India’s fastest train, suffered damages on Saturday after it was hit by a flying ballast. Some windows and the main driver’s screen were broken as a shower of ballast came flying towards the train when the Dibrugarh Rajdhani crossing on the adjoining line had a cattle run over, the CPRO of Northern Railways said.

An official statement from the Northern Railways read, “The enroute damage was assessed by the travelling technical team on board the Vande Bharat Express on sight and after careful examination, the train was found fit, so it carried on its onward journey to its destination station at its normal speed. The Train has since then reached New Delhi railway station at 11.05 pm.”
