Railways to introduce new toilet system with urinals, separate washrooms for men, women By PTI | New Delhi | Posted 12-Jun-2017
Rail passengers can look forward to an entirely new kind of toilet system -- urinals, western style toilets with hot water and washing closet seat facility and separate washrooms for men and women equipped with triple mirrors for make-up. The E5 Shinkansen series bullet trains to be pressed into service on the upcoming Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed corridor will also have baby changing rooms comprising baby toilet seats, tables for diaper disposal and a low sink for children for washing hands.

is gearing up to acquire 25 E5 Shinkasen series bullet trains from Japan at an estimated cost of Rs 5,000 crore for the Modi government's first bullet train project. The 731-seater E5 series Shinkansen bullet train, a new generation Japanese high speed train, will also have multi-purpose room to be used for breast feeding and also for sick passengers.
Besides, there will be two extra-spacious toilets for wheelchair-bound passengers in the 10-coach high speed train. Facilities of separate rest rooms and toilets for men and women while introducing wall mounted type urinals for men in the high speed train are in the offing for the first time in Indian Railways, said a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the Rs 1 lakh crore bullet train project. However, urinals and toilets will be installed in alternate coaches in the train. For example, toilets will be installed in coach number 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 while urinals will be available in coach number 2, 4, 6 and 8. Washrooms for men and women will also be placed in similar way.
There will be luggage space for business class passengers in the train. Besides business, there will be also Standard class passengers. While the train will have 698 seats for Standard class, 55 seats will be earmarked for Business class. The bullet train with seating facility will take about 2 hours 7 minutes to travel 508-km distance between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Most of the corridor will be elevated, except for a 21 km underground tunnel between Thane and Virar, of which 7 km will be under sea.
The undersea tunnel was chosen to avoid damaging the thick vegetation present in the area. The corridor will begin at the underground station in the Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai, and then traverse 21 km underground before emerging above ground at Thane. JICA has agreed to fund 81 per cent of the total project cost through a 50-year loan at an interest rate of 0.1 per cent and a moratorium on repayments up to 15 years. Indian Railways will invest Rs 9,800 crore in the high-speed rail project and the remaining cost will be borne by the state governments of Maharashtra and Gujarat.

* It looks like IR is importing the Shinkanshen train and track technology as operated in Japan without customisation for Indian Railways.
* Standard guage 1435 used in Shinkansen trains shall be used against 1676mm BG prevalent in India.
As a result, HST shall be an isolated network with limited approach as there will be no interoperability.

limited to its few stations only as the stations on conventional BG network cannot be used.
* 10 coach Shinkanshen trainsets with a length of 257M shall be imported
* Layout of Shinkanshen is designed to suit the choice & needs of Japanese which should be studied & tailored to suit Indian conditions.
(type and pattern of location of seats, provision of toilets, urinals, washrooms etc)
* Due to shorter average height of Japanese closer spacing of seats in Shinkanshen trains may not be convenient to Indians, else a seating capacity of 100 per coach of 25 M length is difficult with spacing provided in IR ACC coaches.
