TOKYO: A crack has been found in a Japanese "bullet train" that could have caused a derailment, officials said today, in the first-ever "serious incident" for the iconic mode of transport.
Crew aboard a "shinkansen" bullet train reported a burning smell and strange noises when it pulled out of a station in southern Japan on Monday.
The train stopped for checks at Nagoya station in central Japan and inspectors discovered a crack in the chassis under one carriage as well as an oil leak.

the train had continued to run, the crack could have caused it to derail in the worst-case scenario, transport officials said.
About 1,000 passengers aboard were unhurt and they continued their journey on fresh trains.
"We recognise it as a 'serious incident' as it was an extraordinary case... It could have led to an accident," said an official at the Japan Transport Safety Board.

It is the first such "serious incident" since the predecessor to the safety board was created in 2001, she said.
"We have sent three inspectors (to Nagoya) to find out the cause. Their report will include measures to prevent a recurrence," said the official, who declined to be named.
Japanese shinkansens have been derailed before due to earthquakes but no-one has been hurt.

The passengers have been advised to check the status of the train before undertaking their journey. The status of these trains will also be communicated to the passengers on their respective registered mobile numbers.
At least 13 trains were delayed, 10 cancelled and one resheduled due to foggy weather and low visibility in the national capital on Wednesday. Delhi was engulfed in fog early this morning. In order to manage the train operations, the Ministry of Railways on November 29 announced a detailed plan for cancellation and frequency reduction of trains traversing through fog affected areas. This plan was implemented from December 1 and would continue till February 13 next. Advanced cancellations are being done so that passengers can plan their journeys

accordingly. In case of cancellation, full refund of fare will be given to the affected passengers.
The passengers have been advised to check the status of the train before undertaking their journey. The status of these trains will also be communicated to the passengers on their respective registered mobile numbers. The fog makes the visibility very low and trains have to run on a highly-restricted speed to ensure safety of the passengers which leads to considerable delays in the movement of trains. The status of these trains will be monitored periodically keeping in view the intensity of fog and decisions to restore some of the trains may be taken, as and when operationally feasible.

A series of tweets, and quick response by Mumbai’s Central Railway (CR) officials, saved the life of a commuter who fell off an overcrowded local train near Kalwa on Tuesday.
During the morning rush hour, a 39-year-old commuter, whose name has not been disclosed, fell off a packed Dadar-bound train near the level crossing gate at Kalwa. Passengers on the train who saw him fall tweeted about the accident immediately to the railway ministry’s official Twitter account, which triggered a prompt response.
At 9.04 am @Parsikpravasi tweeted: “Just now one commuter fell off

from Dadar local at Kharigaon Fatak shifting to Thane station. Plz help @RailMinIndia @PiyushGoyal @rpfcr.”
The tweet was sent to two Twitter handles, both of which, in turn, requested for immediate medical help.
@MumRail tweeted: “@drmmumbaicr it’s SOS situation plz treat it as urgent. Question of Life & Death @Dev_Fadnavis.”
The ministry’s account responded immediately, and at 9.12 am, directed the Twitter handle of the CR’s Divisional Railway Manager to take action. At 9.15 am, the Railway Protection Force personnel and the clerk in charge at Kalwa station were informed about the accident and instructed to help.
Ahir Rao, deputy clerk in charge, and railway security personnel rushed to the spot and by 9.18 am, they found the injured commuter and took him to a nearby hospital. As a result of the prompt action, the commuter survived, though he has sustained injuries on his head and legs.
Later, both Twitter accounts that had tweeted for help appreciated the CR’s quick response. @MumRail tweeted: “Issue resolve by@drmmumbaicr. They helped to save one life. Thank you! Keep doing the great job.” @Parsikpravasi tweeted: “God Bless you @RailMinIndia @drmmumbaicr @rpfcr ! @PiyushGoyal Thank you Team @TwitterIndia within few minutes response @narendramodi_in.”
The CR has now decided to give their deputy clerk Rao an award for saving the passenger’s life. “It was immediate action on the part of the official that saved a life. We will award Rao, who responded immediately, reached the spot and helped save the commuter’s life,” said SK Jain, divisional railway manager, CR.
