PASSENGERS on a Murcia-Aguilas line had to break their journey when a diesel engine threatened to catch fire.
The driver detected the fault when the train stopped at Pulpi’s El Pilar de Jaravia station and advised the 67 passengers to leave the train as it filled with smoke.
Fire brigades from Turre, Lorca and Aguilas arrived to deal with a potential emergency, as well as Proteccion Civil volunteers, the Guardia Civil and Policia Local officers.
Fortunately they were not needed as the fire did not develop and the passengers were transferred by bus to Aguilas.
