Talgo train trial at 200 kmph likely in June

New Delhi, Apr 7 (PTI) After sucessfully launching Gatiman Express, Railways is likely to hold trials of high-speed trains manufactured by Spanish firm Talgo that touch a maximum speed of 200 kmph, on existing tracks in June.

Tracks were strengthened between Nizamuddin and Agra stations for the launch of Gatiman, the country's fastest train.

Dispatched in a cargo ship from Barcelona on March 27, currently nine Talgo coaches are on the high seas and expected to anchor at Mumbai port on April 21.

The Spanish train maker has offered to test run itd lighter and faster trains free of cost on the existing Indian Railways network.

After reaching the Mumbai harbour, the Talgo coaches will get customs clearance and then moved to Izzatnagar depot for trial expected to be in June.

According to a senior Railway Ministry official, "The first Talgo train trial will be conducted between Bareilly and Moradabad rail route at a maximum speed of 115 km per hour for oscillation test. This will be followed by another trial between Palwal and Mathura route at a maximum speed of 180 kmph."

The third test will be carried out between Delhi and Mumbai at a maximum speed of 200 kmph.

According to Railways, Talgo trains are capable of running at speeds varying between 160-200 kmph on the existing infrastructure without any upgrade. Railways has to strengthen the tracks and upgrade the signalling system for running Gatiman Express at 160 kmph speed.

Barring minor changes, there will be no need for overhauling the tracks for the Talgo trial run, he said, adding, the cost of import of coaches and custom clearances will be borne by Talgo.

Besides reducing travel time, Talgo's lighter trains consume 30 per cent less energy which will help railways reduce their power bill.

Travelling on-board India's fastest train yet, the Gatiman Express

A few videos which were shot on the first commercial run of the Gatiman Express which happens to be the fastest train in India, clocking a top speed of 160Kmph/100Mph.

The experience is pleasingly different from the typical Indian premier trains such as Rajdhanis and Shatabdis. The concept of well trained Rail hostesses is a win-win deal. Also, the food served onboard is different(better?) compared to other trains as well.

Trainset project: Setback to Railways Make-in-India programme

Quote:
NEW DELHI: Railways' ambitious Rs 2500 crore trainset project, a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' initiative, suffered a major setback with none of the shortlisted bidders filing tenders. Today was the last day for submitting the bids.

A trainset comprises coaches where each car is powered by a dedicated propulsion system and there is no locomotive required to haul the train.

A nine-coach train from Madrid-based firm Talgo left from Mumbai Port Trust late on Saturday and is expected to reach Izzatnagar railway workshop near Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh in a week's time.
Speaking to dna, Rajiv Mishra, the general manager of North Eastern Railway under whose jurisdiction the Izzatnagar workshop falls, said that the train will have to be reassembled at the workshop before being deployed for trials.
"The nine coaches and the train's bogies (the wheelsets of a train) are arriving separately. So these will have to be assembled, after which testing instrumentation will have to be installed. All this should take about 15 days, after which the train can be put out for trials. The major part of the work will be done by the engineers of the train company itself, though it will be supervised by Research Design and Standards Organisation (RDSO) in Lucknow and workshop officials to ensure the train is fit for Indian conditions," Mishra told dna.
He said that the trials should start by the end of May. It will be the first time that the Indian Railways puts a completely imported trainset on trial. While the Vehicle Dynamics Simulation report conducted by Talgo on Indian tracks have certified the speed capability of the tracks at 198kmph, railway officials told dna that the Mathura-Palwal trial will be at a standard speed of 180kmph.
"It is a nine-coach set. One coach will have oscillograph and another speed trial equipment, and the train will be pulled by a WDP4 or WAP 5 locomotive capable of pulling at speeds of 180kmph. The trials will test the stability of the train, its top speed in Indian track conditions and the emergency braking distance. It could herald a new era if the trials are successful," said an official.
Speaking to dna, Arun Saksena, the general manager of North Central Railway where the trials will be conducted, said: "During the Gatiman Express trials (India's fastest train between Delhi and Agra), the test speed went up to 180kmph. This means the tracks, signalling and overhead equipment are fit for these speeds. As far as Talgo is concerned, the trial specifications will be conveyed to us by RDSO and the Railway Board."

South Vaitarna bridge upgraded..



3-4 Sundays of long traffic blocks later, the south Vaitarna bridge has its 20 kmph TSR finally removed!
The TSR was removed step by step. The result of this removal of SR were surely seen as trains were faster by at least 4-5 minutes.
