CBC Coupling provides extra safety to passengers: here i would like to Quote one of our admin Mr Murali sir on the topic " how cbc coupling provides xtra safety to passengers"
CBC couplers are like two fists gripping each other. The chances of
un-coupling in case of derailment are very low, so one coach climbing over
is low.
If a accident enough force to tip a coach over to its side. the two adjacent coaches will hold this coach straight remember Bhuvneshwar Raj incident a
few months back. There is a extremely small chance that the whole rake may
tip over.
Even in the Dnynashweri Exp incidence, where half the rake tipped over it's
side onto the adjacent track, this CBC would have kept the rake upright
(Loco and first half of the train had not derailed) and at the most a few
feet to the side.
The world has used CBC since 1960's, even with steam locos, our old MG
stock is also retrofitted with CBC couplers.

What guard rails and why are they used?
While traveling in a train you might have observed extra pair of rails are provided along a bridge, below a flyover or foot over bridge. These rails are known as guard rails. The purpose of the guard rails is to prevent the derailed train to hold on the tracks, not to moVe away from the track to avoid more destruction. The picture is self explanatory, that the guard rails hold the wheels of the bogies in case of a de-railment and prevent a
major catastrophe.
Just to prevent more destruction due de-railment. The bridges, flyovers may suffer a lot if de-railment occurs, but these rails prevent that from happening. Hope this clears all doubts regarding the side/guard rails.

The mystery slip coach that belongs to CR, wherein neither of trains with sources or destinations of train that carry it lie in CR(18238 SECR--NR 59386 SECR--WR)
Slip coach journey cycle:
The coach starts its journey with 51293(at the rake end) Nagpur Amla Passenger departing in the evening from Nagpur, continues till Amla where it is detached, In the afternoon 59395 Betul Chhindwara Passenger, which has a 95 minute halt at Amla gets its slip coach removed and this former slip coach gets attached, attachment and detachment both is done at Chhindwara end
of rake and 59395 Betul Chhindwara Passenger continues till CWA from where the train becomes 59386 Penchvalley passenger. The slip now continues its journey till Amla PF1 where it is detached and sent to siding beside PF3, after some time 18237 Chattisgarh express arrives Amla and the slip gets attached in the front of it(Amritsar end) and continues journey till Amritsar.
In Return the 18238 Chattisgarh express brings the coach till Amla, its detached(from ASR end hence the halt time is less) and attached with 59385 Penchvalley Passenger and continues journey with it till Chhindwara and with 59396 CWA BZU pass till Betul, when the Passenger arrives Betul the slip is detached again and attached after 51254 Chhindwara Amla Passenger arrives and becomes 51294 Amla Nagpur Passenger, the coach then continues for till Nagpur for Primary Maintenance, the coaches are rotated with other trains of Nagpur Base(e.g. Sewagram express, Prerana express).
The reason being absence of Primary Maintenance at Chhindwara(might come up in future after Nagpur Chhindwara completes). The coach is running post introduction of Chattisgarh express,and after extension of Penchvalley fast passenger to Chhindwara, 7 trains carry this coach in the cycle.
