I remember it happening some months ago.

Life Line of Chennai
Chennai Beach Chengalpattu EMU train approaching, Maraimalai Nagar RS. In spite of having considerable space for passengers to stand inside, few travelers prefer to travel in foot board risking their life.

EMU coaches have some cables that run the entire length of the train. These cables carry the control signals for brakes, train lighting (powering the lights and fans in the coaches) etc.
In the attached picture (Source: click here I have highlighted the cables in the red box.
The present generation of AC/DC EMUs running in Madras have five such cables running throughout the length of the rake. These 5 cables (and the sockets they plug into) are labeled as A,B,C,D and E.
EMUs had these cables dangling outside the motor car (as in the attached picture), however SR started modifying these coaches to have the cables and the sockets hidden under a flap below the motorman's cabin windows. In the original picture in this post, the sockets are hidden under the panel that has the 14007 number written on it. When this EMU motor coach is coupled with another EMU set (Each EMU is made of 3 coach consists, a motor car and two trailer cars), the panel is lifted and the cables from the other EMU coach are attached there.
This change was done to reduce maintenance and improve safety and general aerodynamics (though impact on aerodynamics is very minimal at these speeds).

Re# 3999536-109            Tags   Past Edits
There are a few things to note here:
1) Every TSS need not have a neutral section near it. In fact there are many areas (particularly in the Madras and Bombay suburban systems) where there are no neutral sections in the vicinity of the TSS. TSS locations are decided based on traffic considerations, peak load (number of trains using the OHE simultaneously) and also the main electricity grid.
Thus there is no restriction on placing TSS at a junction or any major station.
Rescue locos mostly not necessary. At all neutral sections, there are 'bypass' switches to allow powering the entire OHE in the neutral section and beyond by one of the feeders on either side of the substation. In case a loco gets stuck on the neutral section, the Traction Power controller can power up the neutral section after taking the necessary precautions and let the train clear the section.
Rescue locos are required in some cases when neutral sections are come up on gradients (Neutral section locations are very carefully planned to avoid such scenarios, but in some unavoidable situations they will put up a neutral section on a gradient or a speed-restricted area and follow certain precautions). In these cases, even if the TPC powers up the neutral section to let the loco clear the section, due to a gradient, the loco may not be able to start the train. In such cases a rescue loco will have to be provided.
