A landslide partially hit train services on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway (NMR) on Sunday. Railway sources told The Hindu that due to a downpour on Saturday evening in Coonoor and some places below a landslip had occurred on the track at Adderlie. As a result the Coonoor bound train from Mettupalayam with a large number of tourists had to be stopped near Adderlie and sent back. They were put on buses and sent to their destinations. With railway staff clearing the track the Coonoor-Mettupalayam train began services in the afternoon.
