Cooking by Induction Heating for Indian Railways
Journey by train is leisure time with nothing to do and a desire for munching all the time. This has called upon the need for mobile catering facility to supply hot and fresh food to the passenger. For this purpose, Indian Railway runs Pantry car in all important trains. There are two types of pantry cars
Rajdhani type Pantry cars: These pantry cars are attached to a complete vestibule type trains with EOG as a source of power. The pantry car is equipped with
...
more...
electrical resistance heating appliances for cooking and preheating of food.
Conventional type : These pantry cars are standalone with LPG as cooking fuel. LPG cooking is economical as compared to electrical heating, but not considered due to safety issues involved in handling LPG. Electrical pantry car also not suited as the load is much more and very poor energy efficiency.
The resistance heating method of cooking has the following dis-advantages:-
Excessive heat loss in the ambiance, discomfort to the cooking staff and adding heat load to the air conditioning of pantry car.
Red hot coil can cause fire if there is any oil spillage over it.
Accurate heat control is not possible.
Induction Heating for cooking
Induction heating is the process of heating of an electrically conducting metallic body by electromagnetic induction at high frequency producing eddy current and metallic resistance leads to Joule Heating of the metal. The frequency of AC used depends on the object size, material type, coupling (between the work coil and the object to be heated) and the penetration depth. Induction heating was one of the most popular means for localized heating in industrial application such as induction furnace, induction heating for bearing fitment, induction brazing, induction sealing, etc., and now cooking is finding application large-scale application with affordable price and reliability. Following are the advantages
There is no red-hot coil, hence, absolutely safe from fire on oil spillage.
Direct heating of the container, hence, efficiency is as high as 90%.
Reduced heat radiation and thus it keeps comfort to the cooking staff.
Accurate heating control
Trial and Energy efficiency report
Western Railway has already provided 02 induction heaters for cooking in one Rajdhani pantry car no. 04804 and one induction heater for cooking range in pantry car no. 03804. Preliminary trial reports have indicated energy saving to the tune of 30%. Northern Railway has also provided Induction Heater based cooking range in one of the LHB Pantry Car. Its performance has been also been reported energy-efficient similar to to WR.
Cooking time also reduced
There is much reduction in the cooking time based on the time recorded for cooking of different items by team of WR. This is obvious also as now the heat is induced directly into utensil body instead through conduction or convection. Now the heat transfer is faster.
Conclusion
Utility of induction cooking in pantry cars is proved beyond doubt than what is holding in completing the work in all pantry cars working with Rajdhani class of trains? Trial work is completed by NR and WR and proven independently. There is every possibility of releasing electric power enough to power one extra coach. One of the constraint in power car capacity is its inability to power 24 coaches and now this modification will help at least in attaching one more coach.

"This is how Train Stoppages are supposed to be decided"
Source: Factly.
============= ================== ================
Every year, the Ministry of Railways receives numerous requests from State Governments, Members of Parliament etc for addition of new stoppages to existing trains. But how does the Railways decide whether a new stop has to be provisioned? At least in theory, the Railways has a policy based on
...

which a decision on new stoppage is taken.
New Stoppage should recover cost
The Ministry of Railways came up with a new stoppage policy in 2005. This policy was built upon earlier such policies made in 1987,1991 and 1992. Based on the new policy, the following must be considered before any new stoppage is planned or an existing stoppage is to be withdrawn for mail, express and superfast trains.
Cost of Stoppage: The current cost of a stoppage ranges from Rs 12716 to Rs 24506 based on various factors. Any new stoppage should be able to recover such a cost.
A minimum of 40 or more sleeper class tickets per day per train for a distance of 500 km or its equivalent fare in case of other classes of travel, have to be sold to recover the cost.
No new stoppages are to be provided if the trains are passing at odd hours.
No additional stoppages to long distance trains in suburban sections.
No additional stoppages in sections with a capacity utilization of more than 90%.
The costs have to be calculated based on the existing fares for various classes.
Other Criteria to be considered
In addition to the above, the following criteria should be also considered before deciding on any new stoppage or withdrawal of an existing stoppage.
Total sale of tickets at the station for both UP & DOWN direction for all the trains already stopping at the station, distance wise, class-wise & cost-wise
Trains already stopping, availability of alternative services, convenience & occupancy of the existing services
Effect on line capacity of the section and punctuality of trains
Population & significance of towns/cities & new developments taking place
Nature of the train & occupancy of the train for which stoppage is demanded
Operational constraints etc.
Pattern of traffic at the station
Passing time of the train at the station.
New stoppage to be approved along with withdrawal of an existing stoppage
The Railways in 2006 realized that there is going to be no end to the demand for additional stoppages for express and superfast trains. It also realized that extra stoppages will have adverse impact on the operational utilization and line capacity. Hence it proposed that all Zones proposing new stops should also propose an existing stop for withdrawal where the patronization of the train is least.

PTO’s tickets are issued on 1/3rd of the total basic fares and normal cancellation charge is applicable in these tickets also. Therefore in many cases ticket value on PTOs is less than the cancellation charges therefore passengers may or may not cancel the tickets therefore cancellation across IRCTC website may be allowed in the case of PTOs also.

What is " Rheostatic braking" of Conventional Locomotives of IR ?
Ans: A system of dynamic braking in which direct-current drive motors are used as generators and convert the kinetic energy of the motor rotor and connected load to electrical energy, which in turn is dissipated as heat in a braking rheostat connected to the armature.
In other words a method of
...
more...
electric braking in which an electric motor operates as a generator. The kinetic energy of the motor rotor and connected load is dissipated in a starting rheostat or a special braking rheostat, and a braking torque is produced on the shaft of the machine. Rheostatic braking is usually used for the light braking or complete stoppage of a transport vehicle or moving mechanical system of comparatively small mass, where the amount of energy released in the braking is comparatively small.
