A.P. train accident UPSC NOTE

 Cause of Accident:

  • Crew Error: Locomotive pilot overshot a danger signal and assistant failed to use emergency brakes.

  • Signalling System Failure: Three automatic signals malfunctioned, but proper actions weren't communicated by staff.

  • Lax Procedures: Stationmasters bypassed safety protocols and issued unauthorized permissions to proceed.

Safety Lapses:

  • Faulty Coach Design: Anti-telescopic features in coaches malfunctioned, not absorbing impact energy.

  • Modified Coach Structures: Design changes by Integral Coach Factory (ICF) might have reduced energy absorption.


  • Improved Coach Design: At least the last two coaches in passenger trains should have stronger crash-worthy features.

  • Modified SLR Coaches: Luggage compartments should be placed at coach ends to create a collapsible buffer zone.

  • Review of Loco Placement: Avoid attaching dead locomotives next to main engines in passenger trains.
