The Abuja-Kaduna train on Tuesday broke down in a bush near Rigasa terminal, forcing hundreds of passengers to trek with their luggage to the station.
Some of the passengers said the train that left Abuja 6pm, developed a technical problem in the bush, about 100meters to its terminal around 8pm.
In September last year, the train, carrying 600 passengers, stopped in a bush near Rijana in Kaduna State after crushing over 50 cows.
The Nigerian Railway corporation is yet to react to the incident. Abuja-Kaduna road is known for notorious kidnappings and killings by bandits.
