Heritage Nilgiris Mountain Railway cancelled due to landslide

कोयम्बत्तुर Coimbatore (CBE): About 180 tourists, including those from foreign countries, returned disappointed when the Coonoor-bound Heritage Nilgiris Mountain Rail cancelled its trip following a landslide on the track at Adderly railway station on Sunday.

Official sources said that the train, which started at 7.10 am from Mettupalayam near here, was stopped at Adderly around 8.40 am, when a big boulder and mud fell on the track.

They said that further journey was cancelled as the rack and pinion section of the track was found broken and passengers were sent either to Coonoor by bus or taken back to Mettupalayam.
