Remains of the derailed coaches lying at the train accident site , Ernakulam Intercity Express derailment. On February 13th 2015, Train no.12677 Bangalore City - Ernakulam Intercity Express bound to Ernakulam derailed at around 7:00 AM near Anekal on its way to Hosur , located about 40 Km's away from Bangalore.

The reason for derailment was due to a rail fracture - a crack that developed due to cold weather conditions. The derailment claimed 9 lives and left hundreds severely injured.

Trains were diverted via the alternate route Bangalore - Bangarpet - Salem. The track was restored back to operation in roughly about 30 hours time.
