Train service between Bengaluru and Mysuru was affected due to a glitch in power supply on Tuesday.
The Holiday special train, which had departed Kacheguda, left Bengaluru at 0645 hrs. However, around 0830 hrs, the train was stopped at Yeliyur station near Mandya and for the next 45 minutes, passengers had to wait without any information on the reason for the delay.
As passengers took to social media to vent their anger, rail officials sought to clarify that the train was stopped due to traction failure and there was no power supply from the substation
“Due to substation power failure trains were halted, which is rectified now,” officials from Bengaluru railway division stated.
A passenger noted that while technical problems are not new, it was the lack of information to passengers that leads to the frustration. (Agency)
