Phagwara, August 25
The rail traffic on the Phagwara-Jejon section remained suspended for more than six hours owing to the derailment of a bogey of a “special ballast train” between Jejon and Nawanshahar last night.

Railway sources, while confirming the derailment, told this correspondent here today that the 55-bogey special ballast train was sent to the section for strengthening work, but suddenly four wheels of a bogey derailed and a portion of 200m of the rail track was also damaged due to the derailment.
Phagwara station superintendent Ashok Kumar rushed to the spot to supervise the restoration operation. Later, a crane and a JCB were brought from Ludhiana to lift stones from rail tracks to normalise the traffic, which could be restored late in the night. Two diesel multiple-unit trains were cancelled on the section due to the derailment.
