As the Avenger fever soars high and the public are eager to watch the most awaited movie of the year, Western Railway (WR) has also stored something for its fans! Inspired by Avengers Endgame, the western railway in an innovative awareness drive, has cautioned travellers to opt for a ‘safer way’ of traveling.
In a warning to those commuters who cross railway tracks putting their lives at risk, WR tweeted saying trespassing the railway tracks can prove to be the Endgame or fatal. In a way to attract commuter’s attention, WR has clearly tapped the ecstasy over Avengers: Endgame movie, which has been released in India on Friday. This is in turn to advice passengers to use the foot over bridges as well as escalators to cross railway tracks.
Although known to all, the Avengers: Endgame is the fourth installment of Marvel Studios’ Avengers saga. The very concept of Avengers is to bring superheroes together to protect the universe from any kind of threat as well as ‘avenge the fallen’. However, WR has stated that there won’t be any superheroes coming to the rescue of passengers trespassing on Indian Railways tracks.
In recent times, Indian Railways has chosen popular TV series like Game of Thrones and hit song like ‘Apna Time Aayega’ from Gully Boy movie to educate passengers.
In 2018, Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain informed Lok Sabha that 49,790 people lost lives while trespassing railway tracks, violating cautionary instructions, using mobile phones and other electronic gadgets while crossing railway tracks. Indian Railways has taken measures like regular announcements at railway stations to exhort passengers to use foot over bridges.
