Indian Train Travels 980Km In Wrong Direction... Without Any Rail Staff Noticing

More than a thousand furious rail passengers stormed a station office after they noticed the train they were on had gone 980km in the WRONG direction.

As the packed service pulled into the Indian city of Warangal people on board went berserk as they realised they were five hours away from where they should have been and no staff on board had noticed.

The train departed the southern town of Tirupati heading for the eastern city of Bhubaneswar.

It was when it arrived at an interchange at Vijayawada it went wrong, as it was due to swing north to its eventual destination of Varanasi, one of India's holiest cities.

India's signalling system is run on codes but instead of entering the three-letters for its next intended stop Bhubaneswar (BBS) staff put in the code for Bilaspur (BSP) sending the train in completely the wrong direction.

Experts were amazed the service did not crash as it went for 600 miles on the completely wrong track.

Hilarious stuff, at least it's unlikely any UK rail operator will be able to top this.
