Incident-marred trial runs ensure ₹55-crore train service will miss September 2017 launch date
The wait for an air-conditioned local train service is likely to get longer for Mumbaikars. The Railways had announced that the first AC local train would begin running in September on the Western Railway. However, incident-marred trial runs have ensured that the launch of the blue-and-silver train would be further delayed.
The AC local arrived in Mumbai from the Integrated Coach Factory in Chennai on April 4, 2016. Initially, the trial runs were conducted on the Central Railway, but the

train ran into problems on the Main Line due to its height. The height of the train was 4.335 m, but the maximum permissible height for trains to run on the Central Railway was just 4.270 m. “With such a height the train cannot run on the Central Railway especially under from the bridges at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and Kurla,” said a Central Railway official.
In May, the ₹55-crore train was sent to the Western Railway for more trial runs. The trials began on the night of May 25 between Mumbai Central and Borivali railway stations. The trial run was later extended to Virar. However, railway officials say the trial runs have been marred by problems. Last week, during a trial run at night on the Western Line, the transformer of one of the coaches emitted sparks. Since then the train has been lying at the Kandivali yard for maintenance.
A.K. Gupta, General Manager, Western Railway, said, “There were technical glitches reported during the trial runs. We are working on it and trials will start again soon.” The trials, which are generally conducted at night, are also likely to be affected owing to the rainy season. The results of the trial run are then sent to the Research Designs & Standards Organisation (RSDO) and the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) for approval.
A WR official said, “The teams from the RDSO and CRS are continuously monitoring the trial runs. The train will halt at each station for 30 to 40 seconds.” Apart from other features, the AC local train will have fire fighting system which will be installed inside the coaches.
‘Highest priority’
The Railway Board has ordered another nine AC trains from Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. The trains can seat 1,028 passengers while 4,936 standees can be accommodated at maximum capacity. The trains will be vestibules, enabling passengers to move easily from one coach to another. Railway officials are planning to run the service at non-peak hours. The train will ply 10 to 12 times every day between Churchgate and Borivali railway stations. Officials, however, haven’t arrived at a fare. They are considering Mumbaikars and their budget to fix passenger-friendly fares.
An official said, “The AC train service is the highest priority of officers as it is the pet project of Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu.”

Moderator,

This news is irrelevant to this site and should not be published here. For the past few weeks this news has allowed RABID comments from North Indians (few).

more...

.
This site has no info on TT or route or TBs of any Metro but allows this sort of nonsense news to be published. This news is irrelevant when nothing related to Metro is given importance on this site. It is just DIVIDING members.
.
This site has hardly 200 members who are permanently updating info and run this site with their inputs. But this sort of non-sense talk has hurt many South members and also North Indians (few) are always hell bent on showing their crass upbringing, are spewing their majoritarian venom on South Indians, unchecked. And North Indian FMs hardly take any action.
.
These news are all politics related, apart from bringing the worst in some RABID members it helps or informs NO ONE.
But this small community of regular members are leaving or stop visiting the site, because of the comments of some North Indians. Attrition of this small community needs to be checked.... As a head of this group, its your duty to see that a cordial atmosphere is maintained. But you have done nothing to stop this vile.
.
The worst offender is this monitor - /blog/post/2357785 - YashM. Always drags filth of politics or tweet from other social media and posts it here. Aren't there other sites for that sort of filth, is it required on a railfanning site like IRI?????
.
.
Divyanshu Gupta,
Your language is unbecoming of a leader (monitor). When a new member like me had no voting rights in the beginning, you spit on me when I gave my choice in comments. When any member criticises that Humsafar or Tejas as a flop, you talk about "slap in the face". And now today this /blog/post/2357785 --- North Indians come to South for jobs, since their own states cant generate jobs. The city wont collapse and all wont die if they leave. More locals will get the jobs.
.
The reason no South Indian ridicules North Indians or their states regarding their inability to generate jobs or check migration is because it will hurt the feelings of North Indians (who very well know of their own states condition and large scale migration to South and West). But no such consideration by few North Indians.
.
.
And finally: thank god, MOST North members seeing the uselessness of this news and the politics involved (with elections approaching) and MAINLY the silence of South members, understanding that any comments will simply hurt the feelings, have refrained from commenting. My heart felt gratitude to them.
.
