Hundreds of locals, angry over the death of a youth who slipped off a running train on Thursday evening, set fire to one of the bogies of an express train and ransacked a railway station in Puri district on Friday morning. However, no passenger has been injured.
On Thursday evening, Ratikanta Chhatoi, a 22-year-old barber who worked in Bhubaneswar, slipped off the 18416 Barbil-Puri Express at Delanga railway station in Puri while trying to get down.Though the train does not halt at Delang, passengers regularly get down as the train slows down for a minute. Chhatoi, who could not get down, jumped off from the train only to be run over by the same train.
After his death, the family members of Chhatoi and other locals did not allow the government railway

police to remove the body from the tracks. “Since this morning when the the same train reached Delanga station at 7 am from Puri, the local people stopped it demanding hefty compensation to one of the family members of the deceased and stoppage of the same train at Delanga,” said Chitta Jena, a villager of Delanga.

Another coach was also partially burnt. The mob also ransacked the station, vandalising the computers and other railway infrastructure.

These idiots should be punished for vandalising Railway Property. I hope IR comes out with a policy that those caught vandalising Railway Properties should be made to compensate or make good for it from their own belongings.

If few such punishments are meted out, i think people will think twice before acting...These small punishment of penalty ot 6 months imprisonment don't work...

Chennai: More than half a dozen express trains from the southern districts faced trouble in reaching Chennai on Friday, following a signal snag at Chengalpet. Electrical mail units (EMUs), which connect the main city with the suburbs beyond Tambaram, also faced delay due to the snag.
Expresses trains which were delayed include Muthu Nagar Express, Ananthapuri Express, Chennai-Puducherry Express and Rameswaram Express.
EMUs were operated only up to Singaperumalkoil, putting office-goers and students to hardship. Officials said the issue was addressed soon and the traffic was cleared.
Users of EMU services complained that delay of trains has become a regular thing for them. "Trains run late at least three days of a week. Moreever, fast trains are being converted into ordinary ones beyond

20 मार्च को दुर्घटनाग्रस्त हुई थी ट्रेन
-रेल संरक्षा आयुक्त ने छह बिन्दुओं पर जोर देने को कहा 16डीजल इंजन की कटआउट कॉक का स्थान बदलने की सलाह क्या है कटआउट कॉक
-इंजन के नीचे एडीशनल कटआउट कॉक लगा होता है। अगर इसका लीवर उठा दिया जाए तो इंजन में लगे ब्रेक निष्क्रिय हो जाते हैं।
जागरण संवाददाता, लखनऊ : देहरादून से बनारस जा रही जनता एक्सप्रेस के दुर्घटनाग्रस्त होने की रिपोर्ट गुरुवार को उत्तर रेलवे लखनऊ मंडल को सौंप दी गई। प्रारंभिक जांच में जनता एक्सप्रेस के इंजन में शरारत करने की बात सामने आई है। रेल संरक्षा आयुक्त ने अपनी रिपोर्ट में डीजल इंजन के ब्रेक पाइप कटआउट कॉक के गलत प्रयोग और उसके लोकेशन को बदलने की बात

भी कही है। गौरतलब है कि अगर कटआउट कॉक का लीवर उठा दिया जाए तो इंजन में लगे ब्रेक निष्क्रिय हो जाते हैं।1घटना में प्रथम दृष्टया यांत्रिक, कैरिज व लोको विभाग को जिम्मेदार ठहराया गया है। आयुक्त ने चालक व गार्ड को क्लीनचिट दे दी है। 20 मार्च को बछरावां स्टेशन के पास जनता एक्सप्रेस दुर्घटनाग्रस्त हो गई थी। इस दुर्घटना में 39 यात्रियों की मौत हो गई थी और सौ से अधिक घायल हुए थे। घटना की जांच रेल संरक्षा आयुक्त डीके सिंह कर रहे थे। उन्होंने अपनी प्रारंभिक रिपोर्ट में उन बिंदुओं की ओर इशारा किया है जिनकी ओर स्थानीय अधिकारियों का ध्यान ही नहीं गया था। 1रिपोर्ट में सुझाव दिया गया है कि इंजन के नीचे लगे ब्रेक पाइप कटआउट कॉक का स्थान बदला जाए जिससे उसका गलत ऑपरेशन न हो सके। ट्रेन चलने से पहले ब्रेक जांच कर प्रमाण पत्र देने की परंपरा को नियमानुसार किया जाए तो बेहतर होगा। ड्राइवर व गार्ड को समय-समय पर प्रशिक्षण के साथ ही ड्राइविंग के दौरान बरती जाने वाली सावधानियां व संरक्षा संबंधी जानकारी देनी चाहिए। सुझाव में यह भी कहा गया है कि ड्राइवर, सहायक ड्राइवर व गार्ड मोबाइल इस्तेमाल करने से बचें।

नैनी(ब्यूरो)। औद्योगिक क्षेत्र में स्थित कुटिया गांव के सामने दिल्ली हावड़ा रेलमार्ग पर मालगाड़ी का दरवाजा खंभे से टकराने के कारण सिगनल खराब हो गया। इससे तीन सवारी गाड़ियों समेत सात ट्रेनें प्रभावित हुईं।
बृहस्पतिवार सुबह तकरीबन चार बजे दिल्ली-हावड़ा रेल मार्ग पर कुटिया गांव के समीप जा रही मालगाड़ी का दरवाजा खुला होने के कारण एक खंभे से टकरा गया। टक्कर इतनी तेज थी कि सिगनल ने काम करना बंद कर दिया। डाउन लाइन पर चल रही भागलपुर एलटीटी एक्सप्रेस, गंगा-ताप्ती एवं एक पैसेंजर ट्रेन खड़ी हो गई। इसके अलावा चार मालगाड़ियों को भी रोक दिया गया। दो-दो घंटे रुकने के बाद यह गाड़ियां अपने गंतव्य के लिए रवाना हो गईं।

Yes...3-phase electricity generated has p1,p2,p3 three phases of 120deg angle.
for equal load sharing rail lines are partitioned into sections with each phase
between such a pair, neutral zone exists and LP has to maintain minimum speed
before loco comes to halt at the end of zone

One monkey halted several trains for at least three hours in Vijayawada-Warangal route. In early hours on Wednesday, all trains in Vijayawada - Warangal route were stalled as the strands of electric pole broke all of a sudden. All most for three hours, travelers faced problems and technical team struggled to understand the cause of fault. But after rectifying and restoring, officials are shocked to the reason. The reason recorded in CCTV camera's mounted on electrical pole showed how a monkey act made all trains en-route halt. A goods train stopped at the crossing, when a monkey jumping on from one compartment to other and one wire to other broke the strand carrying electricity. It left the broken strand and continued its jumping act. Before the site officials rushed to the site of error, monkey has already left the place making it a puzzle for technicians of how strands broke....
