An Indian passenger train travelled several kilometres on the wrong track before the driver was alerted.
The Coalfield Express was travelling from Howrah near Calcutta in West Bengal state to Dhanbad, in neighbouring Jharkhand state.
Railway officials say the track splits into two at Khana station and the train took the wrong track.
Some reports said the driver became confused by heavy fog. Officials

said an inquiry had been launched.
The incident occurred on Monday evening, with railway officials saying the train had gone north rather than west at Khana.
"While the train was supposed to take the track towards Dhanbad, it went towards Bolpur. The staff at Talit station spotted the error and sent the train back," Samir Goswami, spokesman for the Eastern Railways, said.
An investigation has been launched to find out who was at fault, he told the BBC.
Reports said the train travelled almost seven kilometres (four miles) before the error was spotted.
Trains on the wrong track are a major cause of accidents on Indian railways.
More than 60 people died last year when a passenger train collided with a stationary train at Sainthia station - on the same line where Monday's incident happened.

एक सितंबर से वर्दमान-हटिया पैसेंजर ट्रेन की रफ्तार बढ़ जाएगी। रेलवे ने इस ट्रेन में कंवेंशनल रैक की जगह मेमू रैक लगाने की घोषणा की है। इस संबंध में पूर्व रेलवे ने अधिसूचना जारी कर दी है। यह जानकारी सीनियर डीसीएम आशीष कुमार झा ने दी। उन्होंने बताया कि रैक बदलने से ट्रेन की रफ्तार बढ़ेगी और सफर पहले की तुलना में आरामदायक हो जाएगी। रैक बदलने के साथ ही ट्रेन का नंबर 53061-53062 से बदल कर 63503-63504 हो जाएगा।

The Indian Railways has decided to revamp its antiquated signalling system in phases to enhance safety and increase average speed of trains. The national transporter plans to introduce the new European Train Control System-2 (ETCS2) which will allow it to increase train speeds significantly and, as a result, run more trains with the same infrastructure, officials said.
The new technology allows trains to run in shorter blocks, which means trains can run on the same track with a minimum distance of just 500 metres between them. The first such signalling system will be installed on the highly congested Delhi-Mughalsarai section. Indian Railways expects companies such as Bombardier and Alstom to bid for the project, according to officials.
“At

the recent Rail Board meeting, the 830-km Delhi-Mughalsarai section was identified for ETCS2 signalling. This will be carried out through a joint venture with Power Grid Corporation for signalling and with Railtel for communication.
Since the Delhi-Mughalsarai route has very high traffic density, modern signalling will help in decongestion,” said a railways ministry official, who did not wish to be identified. “Modern signalling will help reduce congestion in rail network and increase line capacity by 40-50%,” he said.
The ability to run more trains on tracks will also help the railways improve its chequered record in terms of punctuality.
“It will eliminate train delays due to automated signalling and real-time information of train movements being made available, eliminating the need for manual data logging,” the official said.
Besides, the move will enhance safety on tracks. In 2017-18, 73 accidents had taken place on railway tracks. “Signalling will potentially eliminate human induced rail accidents to zero,” the official said. In a recent review meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the railways was told to go for a signalling technology which was financially viable and indigenous.
The ministry official said that once the ETCS2 technology is tried on the Delhi-Mughalsarai section, foreign companies will be invited to set up the signalling equipment manufacturing plants in India.
“The European technology will be price competitive and in later stages we also plan to manufacture it locally under ‘Make in India’,” he said.

The electrification of the 118 kilometre long Masagram-Bankura route, the only stretch waiting to get electrified in the whole Adra division of South Eastern Railway (SER), would also ensure a single traction for trains.
"This means that we will be able to use electric engines for the entire route from the North East to the south instead of having to change to diesel engines for the non-electrified section," SER spokesman Sanjoy Ghosh told PTI.
"Also, getting caught in the busy Howrah-Bardhaman and Howrah-Kharagpur lines will soon be a thing of the

past," he said.
Though the stretch between Kharagpur to Bankura via Masagram would be lengthier by 44 kilometre, avoiding these congested suburban sections, where EMU locals ply, would lead to lesser travel time for the express trains, Ghosh said.
Using a single traction would entail a lesser detention en route, he noted.
"A large number of patients and students travel between the North East and southern destinations of Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai every day," he said.
Howrah station is choc a bloc with trains throughout the day and finds it hard to allot platforms for trains, leading to long waiting time outside the station, Ghosh added.
The 2018-19 Union Budget has sanctioned electrification of the 118-km stretch of Bankura-Mashagram rail link at a proposed cost of Rs 92.8 crore.
The SER spokesman said that the completion of 24-km rail link between Bowachandi and Khana Junction stations would also help reduce travel time for trains between the north-east and various destinations in the south and the west.
The route, which was sanctioned in the Railway Budget of 2005-06, had faced land acquisition hurdles leading to delay in completion.
"The Railways has deposited Rs 14.34 crore with the West Bengal government for land acquisition for the rail link. Around 90 per cent of the land required for the project has been handed over to SER," Ghosh said.
He said that the construction work was in full swing on the stretch and foundation and structure of a major bridge over River Damodar have been laid.
This Bowachandi-Khana route will serve as an important link between SER's Adra division and Eastern Railway's Howrah division, reducing distance between Kharagpur and Khana by 19 kilometre, Ghosh said.
