Why do you sometimes see sparks on the catenaries?
This phenomenon is part of the normal functioning of the train, causing only very minor wear
to material and presenting no risk for passengers. How can it be explained?
The sparking from catenaries can be explained by the flexibility of the (spring loaded) pantograph and the catenary (wire), sometimes causing the pantograph to separate from

the cable. When the two components are less than one centimetre apart, the current continues to flow, due to the very high voltage which prevents the air from acting as an insulator. The passage of the current leads to ionisation of the air, i.e. a modification of the electrical charge of the atoms present in the air, which are no longer electrically neutral. It is this reaction that creates a spark, known as an “electrical arc”.

Mixed services usually have both freight wagons and passenger coaches in the same rake. Such services were usually run on routes with very less traffic. They used to be very common in the Steam days. These days, they are only visible in a handful of sections, mostly the remaining metre and narrow gauge sections.

Those tracks are called guard rails. Guard rails are placed parallel to regular running rail along areas of restrictive clearance, such as a bridge, trestle, or tunnel. These have the effect of keeping the wheels of rolling stock in alignment in case of derailment. It also helps to minimize damage to the structure and allow easier post-accident cleanup. Similarly you have check rails which are extra tracks on road surface in level crossings and have similar functions as thatcof guard rails.

Think of a train which has 100 reserved seats and 10 seats r for the RAC pax in that train. Now if already 110 people has reserved in that train and u r the 111th person to reserved in that train, then ur ticket will be in waiting list. Now suppose 1personout of those 110 before u has cancelled his ticket, then u ticket moves one position forward and u come within the 10 person who will have a RAC ticket. So u will now get a RAC ticket. Now suppose again 10 people out of those 109 peoples before u cancel their ticket in that train, so now u move forward by 10position and now u r among the 100 pax who will get a confirm seat.so now u will get a confirm ticket. If those cancellations don't occur then ur ticket will remain in RAC or WL as per...

a passenger has RAC booking, he can travel in the train. The passenger will be sharing the Side Lower Berth with some other passenger.
Depending upon vacancy and sequence, RAC passengers are allotted berths during journey. it is also possible, that a passenger will have to travel in RAC witout getting full berth for the entire journey.

RAC means Reservation Against Cancellation!
An RAC ticket gets you on the train (A WL ticket doesn’t) and in your chosen class, but there’s a chance you could end up with just a seat.
A berth is split into 2 seats for 2 RAC ticket holders, if there’s any last minute cancellations, or if any quota allocations remain unsold, or if

any confirmed ticket holders are given a free upgrade (more later), an RAC ticket holder is given the empty berth, the other RAC ticket holder can then convert the 2 seats into a berth.

What is DYNAMIC BRAKING???
A half-century ago, when diesel locomotives were replacing steam engines, a revolutionary breakthrough - dynamic braking - was making freight operations safer and more efficient.
Dynamic braking is the method of train braking whereby the kinetic energy of a moving train is used to generate electric current at the locomotive traction motors.
It works like this: While the
...
more...
train is coasting, the engineer, using an eight-notch controller similar to the throttle, energizes the traction-motor fields, causing the motors to act as generators. The resistance of the motor field acts as a brake on the locomotive, which in turn helps to slow the train. The electric current generated by the motors in the dynamic-braking mode is a waste product and is dissipated as heat in banks of resistors located in the locomotive carbody.
Dynamic braking is not a substitute for train air brakes (electronically controlled or otherwise), but a supplementary system that provides an additional means of train-speed control.
Initially, dynamic braking was seen mainly as a tool for mountainous territory, where freight-car wheels and brakeshoes were prone to overheating on long downgrades. Diesel locomotives for trains operating in level territory, relatively light trains like passenger trains, and slow-movers like yard engines, did not have dynamic braking. Large railroads like the Pennsylvania and Santa Fe would specify dynamic braking for diesels intended for use in mountain districts, and acquire units without "dynamics" for flat country. Substantially level railroads like Soo Line and Florida East Coast would eschew dynamics altogether.
Eventually, the desire for greater flexibility in locomotive assignment, as well as improvements like extended-range dynamic braking, which is effective at speeds as low as 6 mph (the "extension" is in speed), led to the adoption of dynamics as standard equipment for nearly all new diesels, freight and passenger. Though most diesels built recently have been big, road-haul units with dynamic braking, many older, non-"d.b." units are in service on locals and in yards.
While dynamic braking is used to control train speed all over the railroad network, it is still of vital importance in areas with heavy grades. In steam days, helper locomotives would cut off a train at the top of a grade. Today, diesels use their tractive effort to help move a train up one side of a hill, and dynamic braking to ease it down the other side. Indeed, in some spots like Cajon Pass in California, rules are in place to prevent a train from starting downgrade unless it has a specified number of units with functioning dynamic brakes.
The only external evidence of dynamics is the presence of grilles covering the resistor grids. These are found at the rear of the long hood under the radiator overhangs on General Electric units, and directly behind the cab just below the top of the long hood on newer General Motors products. Until the advent of the SD50 model in 1981, the dynamic braking resistors of GM locomotives were located in the middle of the long hood directly above the diesel engine in a pronounced bulge or blister topped by one or two cooling fans on the roof.
The use of dynamic braking is audible to the trackside observer in the form of a humming or whining sound that's quite distinct from the noise made by the diesel engine operating under load.
Dynamic braking's ancestor was regenerative braking, a feature found in some electric locomotives Regenerative braking was similar to dynamic braking in that wear and tear on wheels and brake shoes was reduced, and train-control was enhanced, but it was different in one important way: the power generated by the motors was not wasted by being dissipated as heat. Instead, the power was returned to the overhead distribution system With their motors functioning as generators, locomotives on downgrade trains could literally provide power to other trains going uphill.
The electrical characteristics of modern, rectifier electric locomotives and multiple-unit cars do not permit the return of power to the distribution system. Such rolling stock is equipped for simple dynamic braking.
A newer invention, electronically controlled pneumatic braking, may revolutionize train-handling in the decades to come.

Traction Motors:

INTRODUCTION
CLW started Traction Motor manufacture from 1969 with Alsthom design of MG-1580 motors and TAO-659 motors and switched over to HS15250A, 850 HP Traction Motors for which technology was received from Hitachi, Japan. HS15250A Traction Motor production started in 1988-89.
...

Now with the advent of three phase technology of locomotives from Bombardier Transportation, Switzerland, CLW has geared up to manufacture 1000 HP and 1500 HP state-of-the-art 3- Phase Traction Motors for freight (WAG-9) and passenger (WAP-5 & WAP-7) locomotives.

CLW also has in-house manufacturing facilities of other Electrical power and Control equipments i.e. Smoothing Reactor, Inductive Shunt, Master Controller, Traction Braking Switch, Electro-Pneumatic (EP) Contactors and Reversers.

The different type of Traction Motors manufactured at CLW are following:-
I. 3-PHASE TRACTION MOTOR TYPE 6FRA6068 & 6FXA 7059
3-Phase Tracation Motors type 6FRA6068 for WAG-9 and WAP-7 locomotives & 6FXA7059 for WAP-5 locomotive are being manufactured indigenously by CLW since the financial year 1998-99 & 1999-2000 respectively.With the production of 3-phase Traction Motor,CLW has entered the era of state of the art,3-phase technology.

(3-phaseTM type 6FRA6068) (3-phaseTM type 6FXA 7059)

II. HITAHI TRACTION MOTOR TYPE HS15250A
Hitachi traction Motor is one of the most critical and vital equipment in conventional Electric locomotives type WAG-7 & WAP-4 under production at CLW.The production of Hitachi TM is now from 2016-17 and onwards completely stopped.

What is APU(AUXILIARY POWER UNIT)???
APU is a self-contained system with its own small diesel engine coupled to low capacity compressor and alternator to maintain main reservoir pressure, charge battery, operate driver cabin HVAC system and other small loads as per customer requirement. The main engine is started only when the locomotive is actually required for movement or traction.
The control system on the locomotive continuously monitors the locomotive battery status and other important parameters like MRPR, Loco IDLING status, Engine temperatures etc. If the loco idling time is more than 10 minutes,
...

the system shuts down the main engine and run the APU engine.
APU has a baby compressor, which produces compressed air and feeds to locomotive main reservoir to compensate the formation leakages.
While APU main engine is shut down and APU engine is running, The system continuously monitor the critical parameters and ensure they are with in limits.
MR pressure is maintained between 8 to 10 kg / cm 2 .
Locomotive batteries are getting charged and keeps the charging current with in limits.
Critical safety parameters both on main engine and APU are being continuously monitored. If any of the monitored parameters are deviated from the limits, Main engine is automatically started and APU engine is stopped.
The system is supplied complete with controls, sensors, accessories and application software.
