In a significant move, the Railway Board has changed the classification of ‘High-Speed’ for the purposes of deployment of loco pilots and assistant loco pilots.
According to the new notification, 130 km/h and below will not be treated as ‘High-Speed’ for the purposes of crew allocation. Zones will no longer have to allot two loco pilots for any train that operates at a maximum permissible speed (MPS) of 120 km/h and above. A loco pilot and a sufficiently qualified assistant loco pilot will be adequate.
