Central Railway has told the railway ministry that it will require 15 Mainline Electrical Multiple Units (MEMUs) to replace 11 trains that are hauled by diesel locomotives on several passenger routes. MEMUs are like Mumbai's local trains but with one major difference that they are narrower. The good news for the passengers is that these MEMUs are faster and can allow CR to run more trips on some routes where patronage is high.
CR will also be setting up a carshed for the maintenance and overhaul of these MEMUs at Ajni near Nagpur. At the moment, CR does not have any MEMU carshed. which was one of the reasons the recently-commissioned Pune-Daund electrified line got a diesel-powered Diesel-Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU).
CR Wants MEMU instead of DEMU

2) Diva Roha (After Complete Electrification)

Hope that railway ministry flag green for this project

रेल्वे अर्थसंकल्पाकडून नागपूरकरांच्या अपेक्षा
रेल्वेचा अर्थसंकल्प सादर होण्यास काही दिवस असताना नागपूरकरांसाठी काय असेल याविषयी चर्चा सुरू झाली असून प्रवाशांनी या अर्थसंकल्पातून बऱ्याच अपेक्षा व्यक्त केल्या आहेत.
रेल्वेमंत्री सुरेश प्रभू हे येत्या २५ फेब्रुवारीला अर्थसंकल्प सादर करणार आहेत. नवीन गाडय़ा आणि रेल्वेतील सोयी-सुविधांबद्दलची मोठी आशा बाळगण्यात येत असून यासाठी मोठय़ा गुंतवणुकीची आवश्यकता आहे, परंतु काही प्रवाशांनी रेल्वेवर फारसा आर्थिक बोझा न पडताही नागपुरातील प्रवाशांना दिलासा दिला जाऊ शकतो, अशा काही उपाययोजना शहरातील जागरूक प्रवाशांनी सुचवल्या आहेत.
