Surf’s Up As Train Plows Through Flooded Station In India

What is it with railway conductors feeling the need to go really fast through a station, whether it’s flooding they’re facing, or the effects of a snow storm?

We already saw what snow did to commuters waiting for their train in the U.S. earlier this year, after Storm Stella passed through the Eastern Coast.

Perhaps after spraying those people with snow, that conductor found another job in India, near Mumbai, giving him another run at freaking people out.

Seriously though, a speeding train makes for a scary sight, especially when it’s about to disburse water throughout the station like it’s trying to put out a fire.

According to a witness, water had risen around the tracks due to heavy rain in Mumbai.

“Instead [of] slowing down or stopping the train, the motorman actually made the train pass speedily from the station. This created havoc among the public standing on the platform. All the water splashed on the commuters standing on the station.”

    I’m not so sure that India is really suited for rail transportation. They don’t seem very good at it.

      You kidding right ? Indian railway i agree ain’t the most pleasant thing but without it everything will collapse in India… And as far as being good.. Considering the population and the number of commuters and goods they transport I think they are doing a pretty decent job.

      • TheBelltower

        I understand they rely on it. But the stories we’ve heard about Indian rail transportation are insane. People hang from the train cars like barnacles. That ain’t good.

          Will let me assure you that’s always not the case.

          • TheBelltower

            True. It isn’t.

    Indian train services are probably much better than British train services now especially that pathetic “Southern Rail”

    Show me a Southern Rail train on time, I’ll show you a snowball in hell.

    This is what British rail needs, Some get on with it attitude and MORE carriages.

  • Vassilis

  • Matthew Raworth

    If this was in Britain, this one flooded station would mean all trains in the country cancelled for at least two days. Not even kidding.
