The engine of Venad Express got detached from rest of the rake as it entered Ernakulam Town railway station on Sunday morning.

The train resumed its journey after a delay of 45 minutes, after workers re-attached the engine. Railway sources said the incident occurred at 10.30 a.m. A preliminary enquiry suggests it happened due to technical fault, following which the coupling that links the engine with rest of the Linke Hoffman Busch (LHB) rake got detached.
