Mumbai-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Express: Nose Of Train Damages Again

The newly inaugurated semi-high-speed train struck a cow between Kanjari and Anand stations in Gujarat on Friday, resulting in minor damage to the train's nose panel, one day after the Gandhinagar-Mumbai Vande Bharat Express collided with buffaloes. 


Thursday saw the replacement of the nose cone of the Gandhinagar-Mumbai Vande Bharat Express after it struck four buffaloes on the way there.


According to a railway official, the most recent incident resulted in only a tiny dent on the nose cone panel and no other significant damage to the train. Around 11.15 am, an accident occurred between Vatva station and Maninagar on the train traveling from Mumbai Central to Gujarat's Gandhinagar. 


At 3.45 pm on Friday, the event happened close to Anand, roughly 432 kilometers from

Mumbai. "A cow got in the way, and the Mumbai train ran over it. The incident occurred at about 3:45 pm and did minor damage, but the train had to stop for around ten minutes. After that, it travels to Mumbai, a Western Railways employee in Vadodara reports Hindustan Times. 


On Thursday, panels on the express train's engine's nose sustained damage. After an eight-minute stop, according to officials, the train started moving toward Gandhinagar and arrived on time. 


"The cattle-hit incident caused damage to the driver coach's nose cone cover and attachment brackets. The train's essential components, however, were untouched. At the Coach Care Center in Mumbai Central, the broken nose cone was replaced, "Western Railway's head public relations officer, Sumit Thakur, stated. 


FRP was used to make the nose cone (fiber-reinforced plastic). Unfortunately, the train broke down between Gairatpur and Vatva Railway stations. Modi boarded the Vande Bharat Express train at Gandhinagar station on September 30 and rode it to Ahmedabad.


In the nation, this is the third Vande Bharat train. The other two travel from New Delhi to Katra and Varanasi, respectively. Six times a week, the new Vande Bharat train runs. 


Smita Prakash, the editor of the news service ANI, also shared the Vande Bharat Express's repaired photograph and urged people to delete any images of the accident that had been posted on social media. 


The train is outfitted with cutting-edge, modern safety systems, such as the locally designed KAVACH Train Collision Avoidance System. In addition, it has more modern and upgraded characteristics, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in about 52 seconds.
