#Work-Life of Indian Railway's Drivers (Loco-Pilots)
I. Introduction :
Railways’ Drivers / Loco-Pilots are the most important person in executing the huge task of transporting nearly 25 Million passengers and more than 2.8 Million Tons of freight daily with the help of 2,29,381 wagons, 59,713 coaches and more than 9,213 locomotive engines of various kinds(www.Indian railways, Wikipedia).To transport 25 million passengers and millions of tons of freight and that too with taking care of both the traveler‟s convenience and safety is not a mean task, the driver on whose sincerity the journey
of a train depends. If he is not capable of carrying his responsibilities then the efforts of the other employees go waste, in this sense we can say that he is the most important person of the railways. Thus Railway Driver is one of the most important posts in the railway staff. He is the person (along with the Guard) in charge of the train. Driver is also responsible to carry the train safely to its destination. For instance, in some cases if the train breaks down, or if a signal is defective the driver must consult the guard on how to proceed but ultimately it is the driver whose presence of mind, calmness, responsibility towards his work and above all his co-ordination with the guard is necessary to do the job in tough conditions. We can say that he is the person who shoulders the responsibility along with the Guard of taking the train from one destination to other safely. In that sense he is one of the most important employees in the Railway. One has to be really dedicated and hardworking to handle this work. Railway drivers playing a key role in Indian Railway's safe & punctual running of trains with security and productivity (www.indian railway driver information, 2012
