Feb 24 2017 (08:21)   Tipu Sultan's armoury at Srirangapatna to be shifted on March 2

MYSURU: Tipu Sultan’s armoury at Srirangapatna is all set for relocation to another site on March 2 to pave way for the completion of the Bengaluru-Mysuru rail track doubling work.
The track doubling work had been hampered as Tipu's Armoury, a protected monument of Department of Archeology, sat in the spot where the second rail track was to be constructed.
With the Union government sanctioning Rs 13 crores for the translocation of the armoury, completion of the railway track is expected to be speeded up.
The

shifting process will be taken up by South Western Railway through M/S PSL -Wolfe (JV) under supervision by Department of Archeology.
The armoury building is a single storey load-bearing brick masonry structure with arch roofing system and pyramid shape elevation that was built by Tipu between 1782 and 1799, to store ammunition.
As there was no technology in India to shift these structures and with no scope for building replica of Tipu's armoury, Railways has assigned US based company headed by project manager, Jamion Buckingham for the project.
Noting that they have moved bigger structures than the armoury in the United States, Jamion said that the Tipu armoury was a strong structure and the movement of trains nearby or work with machines, had not developed cracks in it.
"We will elevate the whole armoury by one more feet and move it sixty meters away in two days. It will be placed in a spot identified by the Archaeological Survey of India. We will take one more day to rotate the structure and a week more to complete civil works", he added.
South Western Railway, deputy superindent engineer Ravichandran said that the shifting work will be completed by March 5. He said that it would take 45 days to complete ground work and lay railway line for 1.7 kms that is pending for last couple of years.

Feb 16 2017 (08:59)   Seawoods-Uran project: CR wants carshed plot near station on route, CIDCO says difficult

karbang   49 news posts
Entry# 2166688   News Entry# 294026         Tags   Past Edits
Allotment of land for a carshed for the ambitious Seawoods-Uran line project has led to a tussle between the various authorities governing the project. Officials from the Central Railway (CR) have claimed that while they had marked a site suitable for the carshed in the project plan, the CIDCO is offering a plot far away. The project is a joint venture between the City Industrial and Development Corporation (CIDCO), the state government and the CR. It seeks to directly link Uran town, Jawaharlal Nehru Port and the newly developed areas of Mumbai, including the Navi Mumbai International Airport. The 22.5-km line will have 10 stations — Seawoods, Sarsangam, Targhatr, Bamandongri, Kharkopar, Gavar, Ranjanpada, Nhava Sheva, Dronagiri and Uran. According to railway sources, while the CR was hopeful of being allotted almost 30 acres of land close to the Ranjanpada station for the carshed, the CIDCO has raised concerns on this.
“In

the initial planning stages, acquiring space around Ranajan-pada for the carshed was decided upon. We will need to stable at least 15 rakes in the shed, out of which at least 10 are expected to be on the line. The location is strategic as it will enable us to easily put the rakes on tracks and also offer convenient commute for the staff who will work on the line,” said a senior CR official. To discuss land allotment concerns, the CR has been in talks with the state and the CIDCO. The CIDCO has given them the options of stabling the rakes at either the Sanpada carshed or at one proposed to be built in Mohape, CR officials said.
“The Sanpada carshed already manages stabling of many rakes for the harbour and the trans-harbour line section. The proposed plot at Mohape is very far from the Seawoods-Uran line. Bringing rakes and inviting workforce to attend operations at the shed could become difficult,” the official added. Land acquisition problems beyond Kharkopar on the Seawoods-Uran line has already long delayed the project. However, efforts to find a land for the carshed is on, officials said.
“CIDCO has no land available around the Ranjanpada station for a carshed. However, since the past three-four days, options are being looked into to provide a plot nearby. We will figure out a possible space for this carshed in the future, as acquiring land for running services forms a priority. It is too early to even comment on allotment for the Seawoods-Uran project,” said a railway official working closely with CIDCO on the project.
The Mohape plot has already been proposed as a site for a carshed for the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation’s (MRVC) Karjat-Panvel project, which would help connect Karjat to Navi Mumbai without a switch at Thane station.The shed will also help in stabling rakes for the proposed Virar-Vasai-Panvel suburban corridor.
“Planning for the Mohape carshed is at an initial stage, and we are still deciding on its possible usage. Though the shed is basically expected to be built stage-wise according to requirement, it will have an initial capacity to park 60 rakes at least. Also, as we do not have a say in the Ranjanpada planning or the Uran project, we will participate if asked,” said a senior MRVC official.

Location of carshed is very important issue for the operational feasibility/ convenience, as large numbers of rakes are deployed to operate hundreds of services on the suburban/metro route. Issue of identification of plot for the car shed must have been decided before starting of the project.

Feb 16 2017 (09:02)   Without foot overbridge, Hoodi station users flirt with danger

Bengaluru: Hoodi Railway Station, which was inaugurated last September, has seen a steady increase in patronage, but users have to often put their lives to risk due to lack of basic amenities like foot overbridge.
The bridge was meant to be built with four months after the station inauguration but the work is yet to begin, thanks to procedural delays in fund allocation.
Currently over 1000 people use the station and many of them are forced to walk across the tracks to change platforms.
“A

large number of people board trains at Hoodi station. They risk their lives while moving from one platform to the other to board trains. The foot overbridge is urgently needed,” said Sanjeev Dyamannavar, member, Praaja RAAG group.
For construction of the station, area MP P.C. Mohan had contributed Rs 1.75 crore from the MP Local Area Development Fund in 2016 and an additional Rs 1.12 crore was to be granted for South Western Railways to construct the bridge.
However, Divisional Railway Manager Sanjiv Agarwal said they are yet to receive the funds. “We are still awaiting the MP funds. The collector has to release the money. It is taking some time from their side,” he added.
Mohan, on the other hand, felt the Railways needs to follow it up more often with the Deputy Commissioner (DC). “I have done my part and allocated the funds for the overbridge. It is confirmed and the money will reach the SWR. I have also sent a letter to the DC office as well. These things take time and the Railways have to also put some effort to follow it up,” he added.
The Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB), which was at the forefront in the campaign for suburban rail, said Hoodi Station should be developed to aid commuters residing and working in Whitefield and Mahadevpura areas. However, with the funds for the bridge caught in red tape, rail commuters have to put their lives at risk while boarding trains.

BENGALURU: With less than a week to go for the first Railway budget in 92 years to be merged with the General Budget, the Bangalore Railway Division has sent across its wishlist to the Centre for inclusion in the Pink Book (the official register of the Indian Railways).
Chief among the demands are a train connecting Hubballi with Mysuru via Bengaluru, three doubling projects and increased allocation for passenger amenities.
Speaking to Express on the doubling projects, Ashok Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, South Western Railway, said, “The doubling of the
...
more...
existing line between Yeshwantpur and Baiyappanahalli via Hebbal will help us run more trains along this busy stretch. The 22-km line will require funding of Rs 170 crore.”
Another doubling line between Baiyappanahalli and Hosur that will cost Rs 375 crore has also been requested.
“This will be a 48-km line and will immensely help passengers commuting between the two cities regularly,” Gupta added. A 41-km second line between Penukonda and Dharmavaram via Nagasundaram that will cost Rs 294 crore has also been sought, he said.
Sanjiv Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru Railway Division, said, “To decongest the packed Chamundi Express that leaves from Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) station in the evenings, we have requested a day train that would connect Hubballi to Mysuru via Bengaluru. It is expected to be sanctioned.”
When asked if any more new trains were sought, the DRM said, “It is not possible to run more trains as we have already reached a saturation point. Hence, we have not requested for more.”
The Division has also sought funding to upgrade Platform 5 and 6 of the Banaswadi station and carry on yard-related work. “The platforms are very small and this is posing a problem to trains coming from Kolar. We need Rs 11 crore for it but even if Rs 3 toRs 4 crore is released, we can begin work on it,” he said.
Agarwal also said that Bengaluru was hoping to get more funding to improve passenger amenities across its Division. “We received very less for it in the previous budget and could not carry out many improvements,” he added.
The South Western Railway Zone (Bengaluru, Hubballi and Mysuru Railway Divisions) as a whole received only Rs 33 crore for passenger amenities in the 2016-17 Railway Budget whereas, it had received nearly Rs 90 crore in the 2015-16 budget, pointed out a top railway official. “We are hoping for Rs 100 crore for the SWR Zone for passenger amenities alone so that Bengaluru gets at least Rs 30 to Rs 40 crore allocated out of it,” he said.
Asked about what tops the amenity, the official said KSR, Cantonment, Yeshwantpur and Krishnajapuram stations require digital passenger information boards.

Jan 27 2017 (09:13)   Technology to detect broken rails being tested

karbang   49 news posts

BENGALURU: In order to detect rail fractures that cause accidents, a trial run is being undertaken by North Central Railway along 25km of railway track after some distance from a railway station, said Sanjiv Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, Bangalore Railway Division.
Briefing newspersons after a Humsafar train (fully 3-tier AC) was flagged off by Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D V Sadananda Gowda from Platform 6 of the Yeshwantpur railway station on Thursday, Agarwal said that the rails running for a short distance from all railway stations in the country have an inbuilt capacity to detect rail fractures.
“When

any problem occurrs on the rails, it sends an alert message to the panel of the railway station master not to permit running of trains,” he said.
However, this detection stops at the end of the station when the last signal from the station is covered.
“A trial run is presently being undertaken in North Central Railway for 25km from the last signal point to assess if rail fractures can be detected. If the tests succeed, it could be a game changer in minimising accidents caused by such fractures,” he said. It could be emulated across the country, the DRM added.
Asked if any specific safety measures were being adopted by the Bangalore Railway Division in the light of frequent train derailments, Lakshman Singh, Senior Divisional Engineer (Co-ordination), said that the Division constantly undertakes patrolling along railway tracks.
Sadananda Gowda flagged off the Humsafar train from Platform 6 of Yeshwantpur station at 9.55am. The Yeshwantpur-Howrah Express (Train no. 22888) will depart at 9.55am on Thursdays and reach Howrah at 6.30pm on Fridays.
The Howrah-Yeshwantpur Express (Train no. 22887) will at 12.40pm on Tuesdays and arrive at Yeshwantpur at 9.35pm on Wednesdays.
The cost of a ticket will be `1,945. The train with a seating capacity of 1,152 will have a hot buffet car. Following the inauguration, the Yeshwantpur-Howrah Superfast Special operating presently stands cancelled.

The ICF General Manager, S Mani, made an announcement while hoisting the tricolour on the occasion of Republic Day. He said that the train sets will be called Train-18 and will have 3-phase propulsion.
All the coaches in the train will be interconnected with fully sealed gangways.
“The train sets will be manufactured at two-thirds of the cost of the same trains manufactured in the international market,“ he added.
So far, the factory has already produced Linke Hoffman Busch (LHB) coaches which can run up to 160-200 kmph and also has expertise in making self-propelled trains like EMUs.
According to a senior official, the ministry has asked the factory to take up the project after it is in the process of making high-speed LHB premium coaches called Tejas, luxury Anubhuti coaches, and Antyodaya coaches.

Recently, the Indian Railways was making headlines for having a plan to collaborate with the Russian Railways to increase the speed of our passenger trains up to 200 km per hour.

Train set is a much better concept than loco hauled train and help a lot in increasing the average speed, riding quality, sectional capacity etc.
.
Fault in a single coach lead to withdrawal of train set from operation and the train set has to be sent to maintenance maintenance workshop. Where as in conventional loco hauled train, the faulty coach is detached and the train proceeds for journey.
.
...
more...

Hence the train sets demand a very high level of standards and discipline in operation & maintenance. Nothing has been heard to make adequate upgradation of operation & maintenence practices in IR.
.
Planning is very important activity and must not be neglected. Otherwise we may see very poor availability of the proposed train sets which may lie parked in Maintenance sheds quite often. A similar example is of LBH coaches, even after 2 decades of presence of LHB coaches, IR is still struggling with SG version of coaches or HOG locos and is forced to commit a cardinal mistake of attaching generator cars in normal express trains.
