Mumbai-Patna Express train coaches uncouple in Jalgaon; passengers safe
No passenger was hurt in the incident, Central Railway's chief public relations officer Shivaji Sutar told PTI.
Coaches S5 and S6 of the moving Lokmanya Tilak Terminus-Patna Express train got separated at 12.38 pm between Chalisgaon and Vaghli stations in Bhusawal division, located over 300 km from Mumbai, he said.

According to railway officials, if coaches of a train separate, its brakes get applied automatically as the air pressure drops and the train stops after a short distance.
