MEMU Service in SER
In 1990’s Indian Railways’ developed Mainline Electrical Multiple Units (MEMUs) having
10’8” (32512 mm) wide coaches, which were introduced in Asansol-Adra, Kharagpur- Tatanagar
section of the railway. These have advantages over conventional 12 feet (36576 mm) wide bodies
stock,
...

which are unsuitable for introduction in some electrified routes due to restrictive
clearances, low level platforms and limitations of line capacities.
The operational features of MEMUs train include fast acceleration, deceleration and braking with
Electro-pneumatic brakes with provision of Schaku Couplers. These enable MEMUs suitable to
function as stopping trains while maintaining the average speeds matching with the fast Mail or
Express train without slowing down the system.
MEMU Train Service is a new era for transportation of users in semi-urban and urban area. 8-car
MEMU rake consists of two units; each comprising of one driving motor coach and three trailer
coaches i.e. 1 unit = 1 MC + 3 TC. The following main salient features have made MEMU more
passenger friendly:
 Pollution free and environment-friendly.
 Carry 2324 passengers as against 1800 in the conventional trains.
 Foot-boards provided for entraining and detraining of passengers from/to low-level
platforms.
 Wider Seats with more leg space in between the rows for better comforts, wide racks for
luggage.
 Vestibule arrangement facilities for inter-coach mobility of passengers.

## See it FIRST on TT :: A TrainTrackers Exclusive ##
Presenting the FIRST LOOK of BIA WAG9HC #32202 spotted just after it got rolled out from ELLAU - the CLW Unit of Dankuni on 15.08.2018.
The subclass ‘C’ signifies that this loco is equipped with conventional brake rigging system.
The G9 locomotives have an arrangement called TBU (Tread Braking Unit) to apply

the loco brakes.
This is a somewhat heavy unit which can apply individual brake on any wheel. Probably the original intention was to enable selective braking on any axle to provide better adhesion through wheel slip control. However, in reality, the TBU system has been an issue since long like that of vibration of TBUs and TBUs getting dislodged/dislocated.
To be more specific when brakes are applied using effective cylinder pressure, then brake shoe try to stop the wheels. Now with this conventional brake rigging system, after application of brakes, the axle set and wheel dismantling will not happen. Also, the magnitude of Braking Force can be obtained from the DDU (Driver Display Unit) with this system in place.
Thus, this WAG-9 HC is Heavier Load with Conventional Brake Rigging. The conventional brake rigging is cheaper and easier to maintain, weighs less and is mostly trouble free in operation.
From now on, probably all new WAG9s will belong to the HC class.
A heartfelt thanks to Sri Somjit Sanyal and Sri Budhaditya Banerjee for these technical inputs.
