मुंबई – पश्चिम रेलवे ने अपनी पहली व्यावसायिक रोल ऑन-रोल ऑफ (रो-रो) सेवा का सफल परिचालन कर एक और महत्त्वपूर्ण उपलब्धि हासिल की है। इस सेवा के परिचालन की शुरुआत 20 सितम्बर, 2018 को कर्नाटक में स्थित कोंकण रेलवे के सूरतकल गुड्स शेड से निकले ऐसे पहले रो-रो रेक का सफ़र शुरू होने के साथ हुई, जो 21 सितम्बर, 2018 को देर शाम गुजरात में वापी के पास स्थित पश्चिम रेलवे के करम्बेली गुड्स शेड में पहुँचा। इस पहले रो-रो रेक में 25 ट्रकों का लदान किया गया, जिसके फलस्वरूप लगभग 1.81 लाख रु. हॉलेज चार्ज वसूला गया। इस रेक में लदे ट्रकों को करम्बेली गुड्स शेड में उतारा जायेगा, जहाँ से फिर नये सिरे से ट्रकों का लदान कर यह सेवा सूरतकल के लिए अपना 290 किमी लम्बा सफ़र शुरू करेगी।

रेलवे के मुख्य जनसम्पर्क अधिकारी श्री रविंद्र भाकर द्वारा जारी प्रेस विज्ञप्ति के अनुसार कोंकण रेलवे कॉर्पोरेशन लिमिटेड से पश्चिम रेलवे को एकप्रस्ताव प्राप्त हुआ था, जिसमें करम्बेली और रोहा के बीच रो-रो सेवाएँ शुरू करने का अनुरोध किया गया था। इस अभिनव सेवा की शुरुआत एक ऐसा अनूठा प्रयासहै, जिसके फलस्वरूप सड़क और रेल के बीच माल सामग्री के निर्बाध परिवहन के साथ-साथ एक पर्यावरण मित्रवत परिवहन प्रणाली सुनिश्चित की जा सके। निकटभविष्य में जब माल यातायात का संचालन पश्चिमी डेडिकेटेड प्रे€ट कोरीडोर के ज़रिये किया जाने लगेगा, तब पश्चिम रेलवे पर और अधिक रो-रो सेवाओं कापरिचालन सम्भव हो सकेगा।
यह सेवा वर्तमान रेल पथ पर चलने वाली भारतीय रेल प्रणाली की अपनी तरह की पहली अल्टीमेट इंटरमोडल ट्रांसपोर्ट सेवा है। पूर्व मेंरो-रो सेवाओं का परिचालन बोईसर तक करने की अनुमति दी गई थी। बाद में कोलाड और करम्बेली के बीच एक ट्रायल सेवा का सफलतापूर्वक परिचालन कियागया। कोंकण रेलवे द्वारा मानक परिवहन क्षमता वाले उन्नत BOXN/BRN वैगनों का उपयोग किया जाता है, क्योंकि रो-रो सेवा के परिचालन में परम्परागतसपाट वैगनों का इस्तेमाल सम्भव नहीं है। उपयोग में लाये जा रहे वैगनों में प्रत्येक वैगन में एक ट्रक का लदान किया जा सकता है। कोंकण रेलवे की सीमा से बाहररो-रो सेवा के व्यावसायिक स्तर पर परिचालन का यह पहला प्रयास है।
प्रारम्भिक चरण में कोंकण रेलवे द्वारा इस सेवा के लिए यातायात जुटाने के प्रयास कियेजायेंगे। रेलवे बोर्ड के अनुदेशों के अनुसार पश्चिम रेलवे पर रो-रो सेवा के परिवहन की रूप रेखा तैयार करने के लिए वरिष्ठ अधिकारियों की एक समिति का गठनकिया गया था। भारतीय रेल प्रणाली के लिए रो-रो सेवाओं का परिचालन एक अभिनव और अनूठी संकल्पना है। सूरतकल से करम्बेली तक परिचालित इस रो-रोसेवा में मुख्य रूप से प्लास्टिक ग्रेन्युल्स, सुपारी, रबड़ लेटेक्स, काजू का तेल तथा मिश्रित स्क्रैप सामग्री का परिवहन किया गया। वापसी यात्रा में भारी माल सामग्रीका परिवहन किया जायेगा।

Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) for operating Roll on- Roll off services from Karambeli to Roha. This is an attempt for seamless transport of commodities from road to rail and also to provide an environment friendly transportation system. Once the traffic is diverted to Western Dedicated Freight Corridor, W. Rly will generate more capacity to move RO-RO services.
It will be the first of its kind on Indian Railways, the ultimate intermodal transport on the existing track. Earlier, running of RO-RO services was cleared upto Boisar. Later on a trial run was successfully conducted between Kolad to Karambeli.
Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. is utilizing modified BOXN/BRN wagons with standard carrying capacity as conventional type of flat wagons cannot be used for operating RO-RO services. These wagons will accommodate one truck per wagon. This is the first attempt to run RO RO services beyond KRCL. Initially KRCL will attempt to build up traffic.
A committee comprising of Senior Railway Officers was formed to decide the rating of RO-RO traffic on Western Railway, in terms of Railway Board’s guidelines.
The Concept is unique to Indian Railways for running of RO-RO services.The traffic from Surathkal to Karambeli includes plastic granules, Supari, Rubber latex, Cashew oil & Mixed Scrap material. On the return journey heavy goods will be carried.

Today (07:52)   Bayer Garratt Steam Locomotive inches closer to commercial run; trialed on the 22 km Kharagpur-Midnapore main line

Entry# 3835479   News Entry# 360175         Tags   Past Edits
: Known as one of the largest and most powerful railway engines in the world in its class, a rare Bayer Garratt steam locomotive has quietly been brought back to life at a workshop in Kharagpur, West Bengal, with four months of work and a little bit of “reverse engineering”. On Saturday, it was trialled on the 22 km of the main line in South Eastern Railway between Kharagpur and Midnapore. This 1929-born broad gauge Garratt locomotive is touted as a “mighty beast” by railway enthusiasts and officials alike. Once commissioned again for commercial runs, Indian Railways will get a shot at another Guinness World Record, officials said.
Invented by Bayer, Peacock and Company in 1907, Garratt engines were a technological revolution

in steam engine articulation back in the day. They burnt coal on both sides of the boiler instead of one, providing what can be simply explained as double-barrell power.
The Garratts were a prized possession for railways across the world. The erstwhile Bengal Nagpur Railway had 32 Garrats, while Darjeeling Himalayan Railway had a few, but narrow gauge. In other words, the Garratts espoused tractive power the kind of which was later standardised by diesel and electric engines.
When in service for 40 years in the BNR (later South Eastern Railway), this “N-class” Garratt had the capacity to run at 72 kmph uphill pulling 2,500 tons of load. Its working speed, without load, was 128 kmph on plains. On Saturday, it ran at 30 kmph and indicated to engineers that minor repairs are needed.
It has 24 wheels, with a “4-8-0+0-8-4” arrangement, considered rare as only 26 Garratt engines with this wheel arrangement were manufactured. Weighing 230 tons, the humungous machine carries 10,000 gallons of water and 14 tons of coal. This one has coal fire rendering on both ends with the boiler in the middle. As a result, it runs on both directions, without needing to be reversed.
“It was the heavy haul engine of those times. When it is inducted back, it will be a world record, being the largest, most powerful in the world working in main line,” M S Rangaswamy, who is advising the team in Kharagpur to revive the locomotive, said on Friday. Rangaswamy, a former engineer in Southern Railway, led the team that revived Fairy Queen, the oldest steam locomotive, in 1998. “The Fairy Queen is a toy in front of this Garratt,” he said.
Standing as a display item at the Kharagpur workshop since its retirement 50 years ago, it was revived for a single, ceremonial “heritage run” between Shalimar and Mecheda near Kolkata in 2006. This time, the intent is to commission it as a regular heritage train.
A team of engineers travelled to Delhi’s National Rail Museum earlier this year to take vital parts off another Garratt engine on display. “We replicated those parts. Made the drawings from scratch. Manufactured the brass safety valves,” Kumar said.
