Runaway train

Unread postby Ashley Hill » Mon Apr 9, 2018 9:37 pm

India engineless train rolls back for miles http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-43695813

Whilst a runaway train is seldom funny the passengers at least do look relaxed. Do they know they're running away and did the signalman send train running away. All 22 coaches of it?
The report will be interesting!

The report claims such incidents are "not uncommon in India" so I'm not sure you will see much more reported on this from the BBC.

Here is a link to the previously-reported incident (22/11/17):
