In another incident, CSMT-Gorakhpur Antyodaya Express train derailed between Kasara and Igatpuri stations in the ghat in the middle of an over 100 feet high viaduct and was stopped in time by the alert train drivers. The prompt action by train drivers Om Prakash and Ghat train driver Dhaman Kumar immediately brought the train to a dead halt. The Divisional Rail Manager SK Jain said that the drivers will be rewarded suitably for their action. It is an over 100 feet deep ravine and if the coaches full of passengers had slipped down, it would have led to an unprecedented tragedy.

"Passengers of 12598 Gorakhpur Antyodaya Express trans-shipped in a special train and it left 09.28 am from the site for its onward journey. Passengers were given free breakfast and tea at the site and at Igatpuri also," Chief Public Relations Officer Sunil Udasi told Mid-Day.
