Nashik: The Manmad-LTT-Manmad Godavari Express has been cancelled for four days — from Tuesday (October 23) to Friday owing to major remodelling of the yard and establishment of new route relay that is being carried out at Railway Yard in Igatpuri.The Mumbai–Bhusawal–Mumbai passenger train will also remain cancelled for the same period. On all four days, power, signal and telecommunication block will be in force from 11.15 am to 4.15pm during which no train will run in either direction. The services will resume from Saturday.The remodelling work of yard and installation of new route relay will not only cut down the reliance over human availability, but the automation involved only adds to the safety of trains.It should be noted that the Igatpuri is the last station before the train descends 290.98 meter from 599.4 meters above mean seal level (MSL) to Kasara station which is at 308.42 meters above MSL.In order...
to descend, the railways add bankers (additional engines in front to apply extra brake horse power) and while in opposite direction the additional engines are deployed to push the train up the hill.“Igatpuri therefore witnesses huge traffic of trains occupying number of platforms. The relay routes have to be handled carefully and massive manpower goes into the same. With the new technology route relay coming in to the picture, we will see a huge relief there,” a railway official said.So, while the two trains will remain cancelled for these days, the other trains will either be diverted or run late. The Bhusawal–Kalyan–Pune Hutatma Express will be diverted from Manmad via Daund in both directions during all the four days.On Tuesday, after the block, the trains are expected to run at least 35 to 55 minutes late in either direction. On Wednesday, the train no. 11055 to Gorakhpur will leave at 1pm instead of 10.55am from LTT, while train no. 12542 for Gorakhpur will also leave LTT at 1.20pm.
