The incident occurred around 2am on Wednesday during shunting of Jhansi Passenger Express when the cable in level crossing pole hit the train and snapped.
The trains are running late by 4 to 10 hours. Many of them are stranded at Jhansi, Morena, Gwalior stations.
According to railway sources, the down line (from Jhansi to New Delhi) was partially restored around 9am. However, the up line is yet to be restored.
The incident shows a severe lapse on the part of railways as the pole was very close to the track and during shunting the cable snapped and fell.
Railways is working on war-footing to restore the busy rail section.
