Indian Railways in general and Eastern Railway in particular has set up Mechanised Laundries in coaching depots to supply neat

and clean linen. For washing, drying and ironing of bed rolls huge quantity of steam is used in these laundries. This steam is normally exhausted into atmosphere. This results in loss of precious heat and water.
This system of recycling of steam will be able to stop wastage of such precious resources.

via Rangiya railway line and flagged off the first passenger train services o­n the 10 kilometre Karimganj – Maishashan newly converted broad gauge section in Barak valley of Assam.
Shri Prabhu said, construction of the elevated tracks connecting Kamakhya and New Guwahati would decongest city roads, free up railway land and enable railways to develop Guwahati station as a commercial hub. He also said that the new projects would keep provisions for connectivity with proposed metro.
The function was attended by Honourable Governor of Assam, Shri Banwarilal Purohit, Chief Minister of Assam Shri Sarbananda Sonowal, Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain, General Manager of N. F. Railway Shri Chahatey Ram, General Manager of N. F. Railway (Construction) Shri H. K. Jaggi, Chief Managing Director of Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) Shri S. C. Agnihotri, other senior railway and RVNL officials, host of invited guests and public.
Speaking in the function the Governor of Assam, Shri Banwarilala Purohit congratulated N. F. Railway team and Railway Minister for being able to deliver many projects in northeast o­n time and expressed hope that under the leadership of Shri Prabhu, Shri Rajen Gohain and Shri Sarbananda Sonowal the region would see many more development in the future.
While thanking the Railway Minister for his initiatives in development of rail network in the northeast, the Chief Minister, Shri Sarbanada Sonowal emphasized o­n speedy completion of all railway projects in the state. He also requested the Railway Minister to take up construction of railway line so that every district headquarters of the state is connected with railway line. The Chief Minister also requested Shri Prabhu to initiate steps involving railways for skill development of the youth of the region.
New Trains:The 10-km track between Karimganj and Maishashan was converted to broad gauge as part of the Lumding – Badarpur – Silchar Gaguge conversion project. With this, o­nly 30 km between Baraigram and Durlavchera remain to be converted into broad gauge. The Railway Minister said that this portion would also be converted to broad gauge within next May 2017. Two pair of new trains – 55686 / 55685 Silchar – Maishashan Passenger & 55662 / 55661 Karimganj – Maishashan Passenger will start operating from tomorrow. The trains will run six days a week with 55686 & 55661 not operating o­n Saturday and 55685 & 55662 not operating o­n Sundays.The 55685 Maishashan – Silchar Passenger will leave Maishashan at 06.00 am to arrive at Silchar at 08.35 am. o­n the return journey, the 55686 Silchar – Maishashan Passenger will leave Silchar at 03.25 pm to arrive at Maishashan at 06.30 pm.On the other hand, the 55662 Karimganj – Maishashan Passenger will leave Karimganj at 05.00 am to arrive at Maishashan at 05.25 am. o­n the return journey, the 55661 Maishashan – Karimganj Passenger will leave Maishashan at 07.00 pm to arrive at Karimganj at 07.30 pm.
New Bongaigaon – Kamakhya Doubling:The doubling of 176-km long railway line was sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway Budget at an approximate cost of Rs. 2232 crore. The section will have 18 stations where construction of new station building and yard remodeling would be taken up. Each of the station building will have high-level platforms and foot over bridges. When completed, this double line will have speed potential of 110 kilometre per hour. The section will also have Limited Height Subways at 86 locations and road over bridges at 7 locations to eliminate level crossing gates in line with Indian Railway’s policy of removing all level crossing gates in a phased manner.
Digaru – Hojai Doubling:The doubling of 102-km long railway line was also sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway Budget at an approximate cost of Rs. 871 crore. The section has 15 stations. The doubling of Hojai to Lumding section had already been sanctioned for which the Railway Minister of State Shri Rajen Gohain and Chief Minister of Assam Shri Sarbananda Sonowal had laid foundation stone o­n 12th September this year. Completion of these doubling projects will ensure continuous double line from the rest of the country to Lumding.
Electrification of Raninagar Jalpaiguri – Guwahati section: Electrification of railway lines in Assam had been a long-standing demand of people of the state. It is also a long-term goal of Indian Railway to electrify all railway routes in the country to reduce carbon footprint and make railways greener. The Railway Minister had recently announced that Indian Railway would electrify 24400 km of additional railway line under “Mission Electrification” in five years to add to the existing 28000 km of electrified railway lines in India. This would make 90% of railway tracks in India electrified. The electrification target for Indian Railways in the current year (2016-17) has been fixed at 2000 km. The Railway Minister stated that Northeast India being a richly endowed eco-sensitive zone, the measure for de-carbonization by railway electrification would be all the more relevant in ensuring a green future for the people of the region.
Electrification of railway routes from Katihar to Raninagar Jalpaiguri and from Maldah Town to Kumedpur sections had been in an advanced stage. The project for electrification from Raninagar Jalpaiguri to New Bongaigaon and then from New Bongaigaon to Guwahati was entrusted with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL), a Mini Ratna Public Sector Undertaking under Ministry of Railways, in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The RVNL will execute the project o­n turnkey basis at a total cost of Rs. 655.55 crores. Under the project 382 route km and 687 track km of railway lines will be electrified. Completion of the project will ensure that Guwahati will have a seamless electrified route to cities like Kolkata and New Delhi and eliminate the need for changing locomotives from electric to diesel and vise versa. This will also ensure reduction of journey time and possibility of increasing speed of trains.

The 50.38 Km new line originates from Bairabi station and terminates at Sairang station, which is 20 Km from Aizawl.

He also assured the gathering that all efforts would be made to complete the project in stipulated time.
Speaking in the function the Governor of Mizoram, Lt Gen (retd.) Shri Nirbhay Sharma congratulated N. F.

There are 23 tunnels - longest being 1766m - 38 major bridges and 6 tall bridges (the tallest being 117m high). There are four stations in the section excluding Bairabi. They are Hortoki, Kawnpui, Mualkhang and Sairang. Each station will have high level passenger platform, covered shed, and other passenger amenities. Sairang station is proposed with o­ne high level main platform and o­ne island platform, foot over bridge with lift / escalator, food plaza and other passenger amenities. Goods handling facilities and coaching rake maintenance facilities are also planned at the station.
Construction of tunnels, minor and major bridges and earthwork in cutting and formation has been taken up throughout the section. The new rail link is slated for completion in year 2019-20. The new rail link will boost up the trade and commerce as well as create immense potential for domestic and overseas marketing apart from meeting the aspirations of the people of the Mizoram State.
