IR has already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with French National Railways (SNCF) concerning the redevelopment of Ambala and Ludhiana stations in the north, while talks for similar tie-ups are underway with potential partner railways from Australia, Belgium, Germany, and China

Jalandhar, June 15

Coaches for the first “Humsafar” rake were today rolled out from the Rail Coach Factory (RCF), Kapurthala, in presence of its general manager, RP Nibariya. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had announced the introduction of four new categories of trains while presenting the Railway Budget 2016-17 and the “Humsafar” rake, which focuses on India’s middle-class travellers, is an exclusively three-tiered AC train. With added passengers, the RCF will manufacture four more rakes in this financial year.


The rake rolled out today has 19 AC 3-tier stainless steel coaches besides two power cars. Each coach has energy-saving LED Bulbs for night lights. An additional mobile phone charging socket has been provided on the longitudinal side of the coach. Plush interior of the toilet has soap dispenser fitted for passengers. Braille signage has been provided in each coach for visually-impaired passengers. The coaches carry a different colour scheme from the existing coaches running on Indian tracks. — TNS

Thursday, July 14, 2016



A locomotive-hauled Talgo variable-gauge train set a new Indian rail speed record on July 13, reaching 180km/h during trials on the Mathura - Palwal section of the Agra - Delhi line

High-speed trials began on the route on July 9 and speeds have been increased in 10km/h increments each day. During the record-breaking run the nine-car train, which was hauled by an Indian Railways (IR) diesel locomotive, covered the 86km between Mathura and Palwal in 39 minutes

TALGO successfully completes 180-190 kmph trials on Mathura - Palwal Section.
--
A number of trials were conducted on Mathura - Palwal Section through the month ranging from 110 kmph to 190 kmph. The 9 coach TALGO rake was led by a WDP 4 locomotive which was in charge of all the trials. The train is being tested by a diesel locomotive due to some remaining OHE works.
Trials on Delhi - Mumbai sector may begin by the end of the month.
Cheers!

Is it common in India that carriages do not have gangways to the neighbouring carriages? The front half of the WAP7 drawn train doesn't seem to have them.

Second class coaches in some express and local trains won't have gangways . But sleeper coaches and air conditioned coaches will be having end to end connectivity.

Its a policy that Indian Railway keeps in order to bar passengers in unreserved coaches from entering reserved coaches.

A trainspotting outing to Sangameshwar on the Konkan Railway. A desolate village overlooks the Shastry Bridge and after running around in circles, we somehow managed to reach this place with the help of the local cattle herders.

General coaches and Last coaches do not have inter connectivity. Other coaches are connected all the way.
