Dangerous – Train passing through a Uprooted Tree

Monsoon was at its peak over this place. As the train departs Sakaleshpur and slowly starts entering the Shiradi ghats, after a few miles we encounter an uprooted tree.. The tree was huge and i guess it couldn’t be moved away! Finally the train was made to pass through the tree which is dangerous as it was scratching along the side of the coach..

One can see the scratch marks. Don’t know the state of people who were peeping out of the windows and got a tree at their face as a surprise.
