Briefly about DEMU:
*DEMU is a self-propelled electric vehicle/coach used for urban transport.
*The lighter Coaches faster speeds and higher load carrying capability have made DEMUs very economic and passenger popular.
*It is economical for short rake information (3-car/ 6-car, 9 –car rake).
is also advantageous for running train in either direction without changing the loco position.
