In a shocking incident, an electric train traveled for about 13 km without the driver. However, the loco pilot chased the train and stopped it in the most cinematic way.
The actual trouble had begun after the Chennai-Mumbai express arrived at Wadi junction around 3 pm on Wednesday, where its electric engine was halted. As the route from Wadi to Solapur in Maharashtra is not electrified, the train was to be attached to the diesel engine.
The railway officials are still clueless on how the engine started on its own. An inquiry is underway and the real reasons behind this strange incident should be revealed soon.
