ന്യൂഡൽഹി: ജൂൺ ഒന്നിനുതുടങ്ങുന്ന പ്രത്യേക വണ്ടികൾക്ക് കേരളത്തിൽ സാധാരണപോലെ എല്ലായിടത്തും സ്റ്റോപ്പനുവദിക്കരുതെന്ന സംസ്ഥാന സർക്കാരിന്റെ ആവശ്യം റെയിൽവേ അംഗീകരിച്ചു. നിസാമുദ്ദീൻ-എറണാകുളം തുരന്തോ നോൺ എ.സി. സ്പെഷ്യൽ ഒഴികെ മറ്റുനാലു പ്രത്യേക വണ്ടികളുടെയും ഏതാനും സ്റ്റോപ്പുകൾ ഒഴിവാക്കി.
നേരത്തേ മുംബൈയിൽനിന്ന് കേരളത്തിലേക്ക് സർവീസ് നടത്തിയ ശ്രമിക് എക്സ്പ്രസ് മുന്നറിയിപ്പില്ലാതെ കണ്ണൂരിൽ യാത്രക്കാരെ ഇറക്കിയത് വിവാദമായിരുന്നു. ഈ പശ്ചാത്തലത്തിൽ, രജിസ്റ്റർചെയ്യാതെ യാത്രക്കാർ വന്നിറങ്ങുന്നതും എല്ലായിടങ്ങളിലും സ്റ്റോപ്പനുവദിക്കുന്നതും കോവിഡ് വ്യാപനത്തിന് കാരണമാവുമെന്ന് സർക്കാർ റെയിൽവേയെ അറിയിച്ചു. തുടർന്നാണ് സ്പെഷ്യൽ വണ്ടികളുടെ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകൾ ഒഴിവാക്കാൻ റെയിൽവേ ബോർഡ് നിർദേശം നൽകിയത്.
നിർത്തിയ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകളിലേക്ക് ഇതിനകം ടിക്കറ്റ്‌ റിസർവ് ചെയ്തവർക്ക്, തൊട്ടടുത്ത സ്റ്റേഷനിലോ അല്ലെങ്കിൽ അതിനുമുമ്പുള്ള സ്റ്റേഷനിലോ ഇറങ്ങാനാവുമോയെന്ന്‌ വ്യക്തമല്ല. ഓരോ സ്റ്റേഷനിലും വന്നിറങ്ങുന്നവർ നേരത്തേ പേര്‌ രജിസ്റ്റർചെയ്യണമെന്ന് നിബന്ധനയുള്ളതിനാൽ നിശ്ചിതയാത്രക്കാർക്കുള്ള തയ്യാറെടുപ്പുകളേ സർക്കാർ നടത്തുകയുള്ളൂ. അതേസമയം, ഇനി ടിക്കറ്റ്‌ റിസർവ് ചെയ്യുന്നവർക്ക്, നിർത്തിയ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകളിലേക്ക്‌ ടിക്കറ്റ് നൽകില്ല.

The members of the first women batch of the railway electric line maintenance section successfully continued their work in the electric lines on the railway tracks between Sasthamkotta and Thiruvalla, and Kayamkulam and Karuvatta. The all-women team carried out the potentially dangerous tasks easily.
The team consists of ten members headed by junior engineer Briji. Krishnakumari, Maya, Sandhya, Ramya, Mini, Raji, Suja, Sheeba and Sujitha are other members. For the past 4 years, women also have been part of the maintenance works on electric lines. But the job was completely entrusted to women staff recently. Though the job is of high risk, all possible safety measures are used.

wear a uniform and cap and tie their body with a belt. The workers are supposed to carry out the works by ascending the ladder set up on top of the tower wagon and hanging from the belt that is connected to the electrical tower. They mostly perform the maintenance works, but sometimes they have to do replacing the electric lines as well.
The Southern Railway manager who visited Karunagappalli railway station specially mentioned the women team and appreciated their effort. He also awarded them with performing certificates and announced a reward of Rs 10,000.

As part of the initiative to offer enhanced safety and travelling comfort to the passengers, the Railways is to introduce Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches in the 12624/12623 Thiruvananthapuram Central-Chennai Central-Thiruvananthapuram Central Superfast Expreses from next week.
The rake with LHB coaches will start plying from Chennai Central to Thiruvananthapuram Central on January 18 and from Thiruvananthapuram Central to Chennai Central on January 19, a senior railway official told The Hindu here on Wednesday.
Threes rakes have been made available for the Southern Railway to switch over the LHB coaches for the prestigous

Chennai Mail operating in the highly-demanding Thiruvananthapuram-Chennai sector.
At present, the Rajadhani Expresses operating in the New Delhi-Thiruvananthapuram Central-New Delhi, the Kochuveli-Indore-Kochuveli Weekly Expresses and the Ernakulam-Hatia-Ernakulam Superfast Express and back are operating with LHB coaches.
The introduction of LHB coaches is part of the decision to introduce them in mail and express trains in a phased manner. LHB coaches based on German technology were initially confined to RajdhaniExpress, Shatabdi Express and Duronto trains.
The raiwlays has decided to replace all old coaches of mail and express trains by LHB coaches by the end of 2019-2020. Compared to the ₹ 1.5 crore needed to manufacture a conventional coach, a LHB coach will cost the railways around ₹ 2.5 crore.
Developed by Linke-Hofmann-Busch of Germany (renamed Alstom LHB GmbH in 1998 after the takeover by Alstom) and produced by Rail Coach Factory in Kapurthala, the coaches are designed for an operating speed up to 160 km per hour. The length of 23.54 m and a width of 3.24 m means a higher passenger capacity, compared to conventional rakes.
They are considered to be “anti-telescopic” (they do not get turned over or flip in case of a collision). The coaches are made of stainless steel and interiors are made of aluminium to make them lighter. Advanced pneumatic disc brake system for efficient braking at higher speeds, modular interiors, improved suspension system and modern air conditioning system are the sailent features of the LHB coaches.
Only secondary check of the LHB coaches comprising of safety check and cleaning will be taking place in Kerala, the official said, adding primary maintenance of the coaches will be carried out in Delhi.

The Self-generating feature for LHB coaches was a failed experiment. The FIAT bogies were not really designed for attaching alternators and slef-generating equipment. It's either HOG or increasing platform lengths to accommodate longer trains going ahead.
The HOG for WAP4 has been too long in the making. These are the most numerous passenger locos on IR and CLW is very well versed with it's design as they have been building tap changer locomotives for over 45 years! It's really puzzling as to why it is taking so much time to come up with a HOG system at least for the WAP4's.

IR gives a very bad treatment to R&D deptt. and it is considered as a one of the loop lines or dumping grounds of the organisation, as far as the importance and promotional prospect of personnel is concerned.
.
R&D actually is a higher order job needing very high technical command over the subject and it can be done only by very good engineers only. Operation is on the other hand a routine job which even an uneducated with high IQ, experience & dedication can very well do.

Although scientists-Engineers as well as doctors have brought most of the laurels for the nation in the international arena, but these fields/ personnels exactly are least nurtured in our country. Indian scientist too have done maximum discoveries/ new developments in other countries like USA and not in India. No wonder a large number of the brightest engineers and doctors aspire to go abroad and work for job satisfaction as well as better pay.
.
If the Indian engineers get opportunity to work in world class R&D organisations, they excel, but if they work in our country, the result is just like the case of SG-LHB coaches/ HOG Locos, which is such an important issue that it can justify the very adoption of LHB coaches in IR.
.
The requirement of SG LHB coaches was known to IR even before awarding the contract for supply of new LHB coaches with Transfer of technology. Many experts were opposed to IR spending heavy amount on LHB coaches as their utility is questionable. Even then the contract was awarded and 20 years later, IR is doing LHB fication of express/SF trains with introduction of 2 generator cars which is a retrograde step. The allegations of corruption earlier made regarding this deal gets vindicated, as large scale manufacture of LHB coaches in IR is not feasible without SG feature (HOG in IR loco was no where in picture during award of contact).

A car and 16 two-wheelers were gutted in a blaze that broke out at an unauthorised vehicle parking area outside the Karunagapally railway station on Wednesday afternoon.
All the vehicles belonged to railway commuters who had taken trains earlier in the day from the station.
Shop keepers in the vicinity said they had noticed the fire at about 2.30 p.m.

people made an attempt to douse the fire after informing the local Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) office, but it did not succeed.
By the time the fire fighting personnel arrived, fuel from the tanks of several two wheelers spilled and aided the spread of the blaze.
FRS personnel fought the flames for over 45 minutes to bring it under control.
The fire also spread to a few trees in the area. The efforts by the FRS team prevented the fire from spreading to the nearby authorised vehicle parking area of the railway station where more vehicles were parked.
The car that got gutted belonged to a teacher from Panmana who works at a school in Thiruvananthapuram.
It was because of lack of space in the authorised parking area that many commuters park their vehicles outside the station. The shop keepers said the fire had broken out in the same area a week ago but was quickly doused. The location is largely covered by dry shrubbery.
The Karunagapally police have registered a case. Police said they were investigating whether there was mischief behind the blaze..
