A Patna-bound train was stranded for nearly three hours between Tundla and Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh after it ran over cattle, the railways said on Monday.
The incident took place around 8 pm between the Kanchausi and Jhinjak railway stations, a spokesperson of the railways said.
Some trains were delayed due to the stranding of the Vikramshila Express. The engine of the Patna-bound train was changed too, he said.
“Cattle being run over is a huge problem in this section and it happens almost everyday,” he said, adding the section was cleared for traffic in an hour.
The brake system of the train was damaged in the incident, the spokesperson said.
