As pulling the emergency communications cord failed to stop the train, he climbed out of his carriage and working his way along the foot boards at great personal risk, got as near to the engine as possible, attracted the attention of the engine crew and thus succeeded in bringing the train to a stop. But for his timely action, there might have been many causalities among the passengers and heavy damage to Railway property.
