A goods train derailed between Narayangarh and Benapur stations on Wednesday, disrupting train services on the Howrah-Chennai route.

South Eastern Railway sources said 25 wagons of the goods train carrying coal from Paradip Port to Kirodimal Nagar in Raigarh derailed.

As a result of the derailment, the Howrah-Hyderabad East Coast Express, Howrah-Chennai Coromandel Express, Kharagpur-Balasore MEMU passenger and Kharagpur Balasore passenger have been cancelled.

The Howrah-Bhubaneswar Dhauli Express has been short terminated at Kharagpur, while Puri-Howrah Sri Jagannath Express at Belda and Mysore-Howrah Special have also been short terminated at Belda.

The railways have arranged buses to bring the stranded passengers of Jagannath Express and Mysore Special.

The Howrah-Secunderabad Falaknama Express, Guwahati-Bangalore Express, Orissa-Samparkkranti Express, Puri-New Delhi Express, Ernakulam-Patna Express and Chennai-Howrah Coromandel Express have been diverted, railway sources added.

Traffic on the route was affected last week also due to derailment of the Coromandel Express.
