COIMBATORE: Only if two persons in a link make errors in their work can a train accident occur. A mistake made by one person alone will not result in an accident, according to DRM Shubhranshu.

The Railways has a foolproof automatic technical system in place to prevent accidents. Manual work is needed only when there is a technical failure in automatic system. Errors in the manual system are minimised as work is attended to by at least two persons.

“We have an automatic system. Only if it fails, the work is done manually. This happened in Uthukuli. The pointsman made a mistake, but the loco pilots realised it and acted to prevent an accident,” he said.

Shubhranshu said that in the history of Indian Railways, no accidents have happened without two people making mistakes in the same work.
