“Train services between Dhaka-Mymensingh and Dhaka-Rajshahi-Khulna were disrupted,” Helal Uddin, the station master, said.

Three other trains -- Chapai Express, Agniveena Express and Ekota Express -- remained stranded at different stations on both sides of the station.

A rescue train removed the engine from the tracks around 3:50pm, Sub-Inspector Shahidullah, in-charge of Joydebpur railway junction police camp, said.
