New facility for electric locos at Trichy

Quote:
Southern Railway has proposed to create a new facility in Tiruchi to home electric locomotives.

New machinery and facilities required to maintain electric locomotives will be put in place inside the huge Diesel Loco Shed campus here, which has been maintaining a fleet of diesel locomotives for over 40 years.


A detailed proposal for creation of new facilities and procurement of machinery and tools costing around ₹7 crore for maintenance of electric locomotives has already been forwarded to the Southern Railway headquarters for onward submission to the Railway Board for final approval.

Tiruchi is one among the four dedicated diesel loco sheds in the Southern Railway zone, with a total number of 148 diesel locos including 62 high horsepower GM locos, which can chug at a maximum speed of 160 km per hour.

Railway sources told The Hindu that the plan to maintain electric locomotives inside the sprawling diesel shed was in accordance with a directive from the Railway Board.

The target is to put in place the facilities within a year.

The shed authorities have already identified the location as per which a broad gauge track will be laid to a distance of nearly 400 metres with overhead electric wire where a metre gauge track existed earlier.

A couple of pit lines will be laid for homing electric locomotives besides construction of a building to carry out necessary testing as part of maintenance.

As the shed has been maintaining only diesel engines over the years, the technical personnel will be trained on maintenance of electric locomotives. To start with, a couple of electric locomotives will be maintained at a time at the shed, said a senior officer.

Trichy Junction becomes Disable-Friendly

Quote:
Malad resident Virali Modi, 26 and a wheelchair user for 11 years, recently petitioned the Maharashtra government to start make train stations disabled-friendly.

She reviewed some trains and stations, and found that the coaches for the disabled were cramped and difficult to get into, and other coaches were difficult to enter because of the difference in heights between platform and train floor.

Ms Modi acknowledges that it would be difficult to make the city’s local trains and stations accessible, especially given the huge crowd of commuters and the short halts, “So, my focus has been to start with the long-distance trains.”

Her activism has borne fruit elsewhere: a railway official in Kerala spotted an earlier petition and contacted her, and now five railway stations in south India — Chennai, Trivandrum, Kochi, Coimbatore and Tiruchi — have been made more accessible, making available portable ramps and wheelchairs that fit into train aisles.

“Each of these stations have about two or three such wheelchairs that can pass through any compartment and one can sit comfortably, while one’s personal wheelchair can be folded and kept on the train.” In Mumbai, she did not get a welcoming response from the Railways, hence the petition addressed to the CM.
