A few boulders damaged a portion of Mettupalayam to Coonoor mountain railway track on Monday delaying the arrival of a train from Mettupalayam to Coonoor by about half an hour.

Railway sources said that the train with 180 passengers was near Adderly – between Kallar and Hillgrove railway stations - about 13 km from Mettupalayam when the boulders fell.

Railway personnel were deployed to remove the obstruction. They said not much damage was done to the track. In a few minutes they managed to repair the track. The train scheduled to reach Coonoor Station at 10.30 a.m. reached at 11 a.m.
