The passenger train narrowly escaped from catastrophe

Mandi Bahauddin ( Sher Gondal ) : The passenger train narrowly escaped from catastrophe. According to details, a tree had fallen on railway line between Haranpur and Chalisa railway stations last night during a strong wind storm. In the morning the passenger train left Malakwal for Pind Dadan Khan and was running at full speed when the engine driver spotted the tree lying on the railway line. He suddenly applied emergency breaks and stopped the train at a few meters distance from the toppled tree. Thus the disaster was averted.  Railway workers removed the tree from the track in about two hours and then the train resumed its journey.
