May 08 2015 (13:06)   Thane-CST section on CR to shift from DC to AC current

Mumbai: The Central Railway may switch from 1500 V Direct Current (DC) to 25KV Alternating Current (AC) between CST and Thane by May 24. This is the only section on Indian Railways which runs on DC current. CR’s general manager S K Sood said, “We are working to undertake the switch from DC to AC during the May 23-24 weekend.”
CR successfully undertook test charging of the AC power in December 2014. A part of the railway network—from LTT-Thane till Kalyan and beyond—has already been converted from DC to AC. A senior official said, “Till now, we run two types of rakes as trains between Thane and CST still operate on the DC system.”
CR runs 10 services with DC rakes between CST and Thane. Most of these rakes have outlived their lives. A senior official said, “These rakes are risky to run as they are prone to mishaps. We have to switch to AC section to run better rakes.”
The commissioner of railway safety has granted his approval but the chief commissioner of railway safety has put the ball in the railway’s court on whether or not to go ahead with the conversion.
There are apprehensions that the lower height of the British-era bridges can pose safety challenges. However, CR plans to apply the insulation paint beneath bridge and catenary wire to prevent mishaps due to short-circuit.

Most of these DC rakes have outlived their lives. But there is not a single incident with any of these trains; at least on media. But there is at least one incident every week with MUTP, siemens or retrofitted rakes with respect to breaking pentographs, smoke from rakes, or some sort of break down. And I guess increase in speed will be only post removal of retrofitted rakes from service.

Most of the retrofitted rakes are the old shabby ICF Krupps rakes which have been many times causing derailments, fire or delays..Please do not blame the new technology..I have personally interviewed motorman at Mahalaxmi car shed who themselves feel uncomfortable in these old trains...but are forced to operate them due to obstinacy of IR and delay in procurement of newly furnished Bombardier rakes..I hope this conversion would remove the old rakes along with the retrofitted ones..
Please note, as a Mumbaikar, I do not condemn the old rakes as they have been serving the city for a long time but its just the time and we need to change with the time.

शताब्दी एक्स्प्रेसला कोणण रेल्वे मार्गावर अपघात झाला आहे. खासगी जेसीबीची रेल्वेच्या इंजिनासह चार डब्यांना धडक बसल्याने हा अपघात झाला. कणकवलीजवळच्या बोर्डवे गावाजवळ हा अपघात झाला. यात काही प्रवासी किरकोळ जखमी झालेत.
अपघातानंतर शताब्दी एक्स्प्रेसला कणकवली स्थानकात आणण्यात आलं आहे. किरकोळ जखमी झालेल्या प्रवाशांवर तिथे उपाचर करण्यात आले. पण अपघातामुळे कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावरील वाहतूक विस्कळीत झाली आहे. पण ती कधी सुरळीत होईल, हे स्पष्ट करण्यात आलेलं नाही.

Railway is responsible for this !
Similar thing is happening 5-6 times in the Tinsukia - Dibrugarh Section of NFR, a highway is running parallel to rail track, still there is no guard rail to prevent road vehicle dashing the trains, somedays back, Dibrugarh Rajdhani somehow escaped from this type of tragedy, still the coaches were damaged.
Even Pune - SC Shatabdi too faced a similar accident some days back, I regret why Indian Railways don't take preventive measures for this parallel collisions.

This infringed the railway track and hit one AC chair car coach and two non-AC chair car coaches of the train resulting in 16 getting injured, three of them grievously and rest escaped with minor ones.
Konkan Railway immediately shifted the injured passengers to Government Hospital at Kankavali. Konkan
Railway officials rushed to the site and ensured early clearance of the railway track. The corporation has arranged ex-gratia payment to the injured passengers. As a result of the accident, train 10103 Mandovi Express was detained for an hour and train 10105 Diva-Sawantwadi passenger for an hour and fifty minutes.
The railway track was not affected due to the accident and train services have resumed. As per directives of Bhanu Prakash Tayal, chairman and managing director of KRCL, not only the section was cleared at the earliest but free train journey passes have been arranged for the families of injured passengers who wished to visit them at the hospital.
