Kolkata: Metro services are disrupted after a Dum Dum-bound AC rake got stranded at the Sovabazar on Monday morning.
The train entered the station and stopped as usual to allow passengers to get off and board the coaches. However, the motorman failed to restart the train.
Metro Railway has 13 AC rakes. To run 300 services a day, at least 20 rakes are required. To ensure passenger comfort during summer, most of the AC rakes are pressed into service. With these rakes running continuously, the possibility of fatigue is high.
