According to form T/A 912 no train should be given /issued clearance untill the block section between two stations is cleared by the prior train.After confirmation only the next train should be allowed.So maybe controllers/SM to save detention had instructed to go more than the restricted speed as the speed is definitely not near 25/30 kmph.A incident of similar nature was seen in Southern railways where T/A 602 was followed by relief loco and the officers pressured to run the loco at 50 kmph instead 15 kmph.When Loco pilot refused he was given chargesheet which was later taken back after backlash.

Lps don't take steps on there own in most cases.They know that what implications are there for not following speed restrictions.It is mostly from the officers who force them to do so for saving detentions and show good punctuality results in the zonal railways and at the board.Incident of Southern railways has been attached in reply below where LP was given chargesheet even when he followed all rules just because he disregarded his seniors instructions to break the rule.

जब तक रेल मंत्री किसी jdu या tdp के संसद को नहीं बनाएंगे, तब तक रेल कर्मचारी और विपक्ष के लोग रोज इसी तरह कुछ न कुछ ट्रेन डीरेलमेंत कराने का प्लान बनाते रहेंगे और ट्रेन डीरेलमेंत करवाते रहेंगे । रेल कर्मचारी यूनियन और विपक्ष ठगबंधन जिंदाबाद

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
