Train in India travelled hundreds of miles in wrong direction before anyone noticed!!!

A PACKED commuter train sped hundreds of miles across India in the wrong direction before passengers finally realised it was pulling into an unfamiliar station, The Times of India reported Thursday.

The locomotive left the southern town of Tirupati Tuesday for the eastern city of Bhubaneswar, where it was due to swing north to its eventual destination of Varanasi, a city in northeastern India.

But bewildered passengers noticed something was amiss Wednesday when it chugged into Warangal -- a central Indian city on an entirely different route some 600 miles (980km) west of its intended stop at Bhubaneswar. Full story...

Don't miss:
  1. India's ageing rail system among world's deadliest...
  2. Indian villagers build their own railway station!!!
  3. Airline pilots 'so reliant on computers they forget how to fly'
  4. After 6500 flights, it turns out he's not a pilot...
  5. Monkeys appointed station masters at Japanese train station!!!
