The Ministry of Railways on Monday shared a video of one of its employees doing a brave feat to keep a train running smoothly. The clip has been shared by the ministry’s official Twitter handle. It shows an assistant locomotive pilot, identified as Ganesh Ghosh, repairing an air leak in a train.
The video shows Mr Ghosh crawling into the cramped space under the train, which has come to a stop on a bridge.
The Twitter post said: “Yatriyon ki seva aur suraksha mei samarpit† Railsevaks is committed to serving its travelers 24×7. An exemplary display of bravery by Ganesh Ghosh, ALP who crawled on a bridge under the carriages of a stationary train and solved an air leak problem that helped to resume the journey.”

The video of the locomotive pilot performing the demanding task comes just days after a railroad police officer showed exemplary presence of mind and courage in saving an elderly woman from being crushed by a moving train.
In a video shared by the Ministry of Railways, the officer and another man are seen asking those on the opposite platform not to risk their lives by walking on the track.
However, the warning falls on deaf ears. Moments later, the officer is seen running to the edge of the platform to pull an elderly woman safely onto the platform, seconds before the train speeds past.
The incident at Lalitpur station in Uttar Pradesh was captured on a CCTV camera.
