“A heavy jerk followed a loud sound, I fell from my berth and everything went blank,” said a survivor of the Bikaner-Guwahati Express train, which derailed in West Bengal’s New Jalpaiguri district on Thursday, leading to the death of eight people and injury of several other passengers. 

A partially mangled coach got perched atop another under the impact, while a few bogies had hurtled down the slope and overturned.
