Himachal Pradesh: Fire broke out in the engine of the popular tourist train Himalayan Queen, reports ANI. The fire started somewhere between the stations of Kumarhati and Dharampur on the Kalka-Shimla heritage section in Solan.

The seven coached passenger train on the world famous narrow-gauge railway in Himachal Pradesh had 200 odd lives on board. There are no reports of any loss of life or injury following this incident.

With the fire doused by the driver on time, the train had enough time to change its engine. It continued its onward journey to Shimla thereafter.
