Other NewsSep 15 2014 (11:26) Can wind from moving train generate power? PMO's curious query to Railways
Jayashree 37386 news posts
The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has sent the Railways Ministry into a tizzy over an idea it received from an 81-year-old resident of Gujarat — that windmills be installed along railway tracks to produce electricity, utilising the wind generated by fast moving trains.
Vipin Trivedi of Ahmedabad, a former employee of Bank of Baroda’s Agriculture and Rural Development wing who retired in 1991, sent the idea by post to the PMO. The PMO, in turn, forwarded it to the Railways Ministry, asking it to explore the “techno-economic” feasibility of the idea, and sought regular updates.
Instead of this, small windmills can be installed on the coaches and the generated power can be utilised for the coaches. The additional energy if generated can be transmitted to the engine. so that the fuel consumption can be decreased. I heard about this project from engineering students in the newspaper..

You have not sent even 10 NDA MPs from your state and demanding the whole rail budget for your state. You are not going to get a single train for your state. Come above the state politics and think about India. You thought that AIADMK will come to power in center and Ms Jayalalitha will become the PM. Jaagooooo Indian Jagoooooo.......

rdb*^ 131777 news posts
Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel has demanded more trains between Mangalore and Bangalore via Hassan.He also sought a separate Railway Division for Mangalore in a memorandum submitted to Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda ahead of the rail budget.Mr. Kateel pointed out that an agreement signed with Hassan-Mangalore Railway Development Company Ltd (HMRDC), was an impediment in the introduction of new passenger trains on the route.
The company, looking to regain its investments, allowed only goods trains on the line and considered that the passenger train services would hamper the movement of the goods rakes. Being a service provider, it should introduce more passenger trains, he said.
