"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on the new policy, the following must be considered before any new stoppage is planned or an existing stoppage is to be withdrawn for mail, express and superfast trains.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.

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

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.

MR: (Main Reservoir ):-
Details : The compressor on the locomotive charges the main reservoir with air at 125–140 psi (8.6–9.7 bar; 860–970 kPa). The train brakes are released by admitting air to the train pipe through the engineer's brake valve. A fully charged brake pipe is typically 70–90 psi (4.8–6.2 bar; 480–620 kPa) for freight trains and 110 psi (7.6 bar; 760 kPa) for passenger trains. The brakes are applied when the engineer moves the brake handle to the "service" position, which causes a reduction in pressure in the train pipe.
