A year after its experiment failed owing to technical glitches, the Western Railway has decided to roll out a rake with automatic doors.
The automatic door closing system is being experimented to prevent commuters travelling on the footboard from falling off running trains or hitting poles. The first field trial of automatic door closing system in retrofitted coach was carried out on WR in March 2015.
A senior WR official said, “The automatic doors were in “The automatic doors were installed in the women's first class compartment, but effectively only two doors were

tested. This time, we plan to roll out in three coaches, which have totally 22 doors.“
The earlier rake was withdrawn within a couple of months of introduction over reliability issues. The door could get stuck or needed physical intervention to open.
The official said, “The work will be awarded to a contractor soon and this rake may hit the track in six months.“
Retrofitting three coaches will cost WR Rs 90 lakh. It is likely to undertake this experi ment in MUTP II rakes built with electrical system by Bombardier.
The ventilation system will be rigorously tested as the number of passengers will higher compared to previous time when it was tested only in the first class, that too the smallest section reserved for ladies.
The control of the closing system will be given to the guard or the motorman. WR plans to keep the door open for 30 seconds to allow passengers to board and alight.
The static trials of the first rake with automatic doors were carried out in August 2014.Unlike in metro coaches, the doors of the suburban rakes are slightly curved, thus making the automatic door closing system challenging.
Under the system, the brake system of the train will be connected to the opening and closing of doors. The automatic doors will have sensor. As soon as the door closes, the current will pass through the cable to release the brakes. Unless this brakes are released, the train will not be able to move.
If the trials are successful, the railways may consider installing this system in all the rakes gradually .

A 10-hour mega block has been scheduled on Central Railway on three Sundays to facilitate alignment change on the Kalyan-end tracks at Diva.
CR general manager Akhil Agarwal said that the block will be held on October 2, 16 and 23 so that work to provide halts for fast trains at Diva can be done.
This is the first step towards improving rail connectivity beyond Thane. Commuters from Diva can board fast trains from the station by Diwali to reach Mumbai faster.

fast trains here will also mean reduced crowd at Diva which means commuters from Mumbra and Kalwa will get less crowded trains.
On January 2 last year, crowds of violent commuters had run amok on CR suburban network following train delays, throwing suburban railway services out of gear.

A dedicated Machhar Maar Express chugged out of New Delhi station on Friday to curb mosquito breeding along the railway tracks in NCR.
The `Terminator', which is basically a railway engine, will run at 20kmph with a low-lying platform attached to it. Two high-pressure spraying trucks, which can cover areas as far as 50-60 metres from the nozzle, are mounted on the top of this platform to spray drains, puddles of accumulated water and encroached sites.
The Friday's drive, meant for south Delhi, was flagged off by the mayor of South Delhi Municipal

Corporation, Shyam Sharma, and the general manager of Northern Railway , A K Puthia. The areas under North and East Corporations, and the rest of NCR will also be covered by October 15. The train, which will run twice a week, will cover Hazrat Nizamuddin, Tilak Bridge, Lajpat Nagar, Seva Nagar, Sarojini Nagar, Safdarjung, Brar Square to Patel Nagar, and Daya Basti in Delhi. Each truck is filled with 8,000 litres of water-bactecide mixture.
The mayor said the move will also help people living in JJ clusters along the tracks. “The encroached areas are prime mosquito breeding sites. Though encroachers are not welcome on the railway land, it is our social duty to take care of them, too,“ said Arun Arora, divisional railway manager (Delhi).
Junior civic officials were tightlipped about why the annual exercise could not be preponed this year. However, a senior official said, “The train can be run only after the rains when water is stagnant. As large amounts of chemicals are involved, we can't overuse them. It might be harmful.“

railway station today.
The water bodies formed near railway tracks are tough to sanitize in an effective manner so this step could help curb the rising number of patients infected with mosquito-borne diseases like chikungunya and dengue.
An official said that the sprays will sanitize large and inaccessible areas that lie at a distance of 50-60 meters from the tracks; all this sanitizing will also occur at a faster speed.
The ‘Mosquito Terminator’ will travel at a speed of 20 kmph and cover a distance of around 150 km per cycle over a period of 2 days. Four rounds of spraying have been scheduled after intervals of two weeks.
The train will cross Sarai Rohilla, Patel Nagar, Delhi Cantonment, Palam, Safdarjung, Kishanganj, Lajpat Nagar, Nizamuddin, Adarsh Nagar, Shahdara and Gurgaon.
