Track maintainer rushes and waves Danger signal flag at the fast approaching train, averts mishap

Shri.R.Sarangam, Track Maintainer (Gang No.8), while performing duty o­n 14th October, 2018 between Ottivakkam and Chengalpattu in Villupuram – Chengalpattu section of Chennai Division noticed a rail fracture at 9.50 hrs.    At the same time,  train No.16106 Tiruchendur – Chennai Egmore Chendur Express was fast approaching the spot.  Shri.R.Sarangam reacted quickly and rushed towards the speeding train waving the Hand Danger Signal flag as per procedure.  His presence of mind and   momentous decision to wave the danger signal flag averted a probable mishap as the train was stopped just before it approached the rail fracture spot.  The duty conscious staff also informed the section engineers who restored the track in a time bound manner. Normal train services resumed in the section  at 10.40 hrs.  

Shri.R.K.Kulshrestha, General Manager, Southern Railway appreciated the presence of mind and alertness of the track maintainer .  The General Manager  lost no time in felicitating Shri.R.Sarangam for his exceptional service in ensuring safety precautions o­n time.  Shri. R.Sarangam received an award of Rs.2000 and merit certificate from the General Manager.
