According to railway officials on Tuesday, a toy train traveling from the well-known Matheran hill station in Maharashtra to Neral has derailed, but no passengers have been hurt.
The incident occurred around 5.30 p.m. on Saturday when one of the train's wheels became stuck near the Jumma Patti station, 95 km from Mumbai.
This took place a day after the terrible accident involving a triple train in Odisha, which resulted in 278 deaths and 1,100 injuries.
According to officials, there were between 90 and 95 passengers aboard the toy train that left Matheran around 4 p.m. on Saturday.
According to a railway spokesperson, no passengers were hurt.
He said the travelers quickly deboarded the train and left for their destination by taxi.
The train was re-railed all over around 9 p.m. and was taken back to Neral station, situated at the foot of the Matheran hills, by 10.30 p.m., according to the railway staff.
He stated that since the incident resulted in the cancellation of the final train from Neral to Matheran, passengers on both trains received refunds for their fares.
According to the spokesperson, the toy train travels at a leisurely pace, and in the event that coaches derail, the support staff members traveling with the train lift them and place them back on the tracks.
During the monsoon, the toy train service between Neral and Matheran will be suspended, according to a senior railway official.
