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
1) Diva Vasai Road
2) Diva Roha (After Complete Electrification)
3) Pune Daund
MENU trains required on
CR have many section Where Memu trains are required
Hope that railway ministry flag green for this project
AS IT chugs out of the Pune Railway Station for Daund, the DEMU is already late by almost an hour. Though the seating capacity is for 1,081 passengers and double the number can travel standing, there are hardly 300 occupants in the train. Almost four coaches at the rear end of the rake are totally empty, a rare sight in Indian trains.
The Diesel Electrical Multiple Unit (DEMU) commenced its operations last week after it was inaugurated by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. Although it did over 40 trips since then, it has rarely plied on time, which seems to have dampened the initial enthusiasm among the passengers
THE FIRST Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) service was inaugurated Saturday by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu through video linking from Kolhapur, where he attended a function. The service has been commenced following sustained demand for a local service between Pune and Daund.
The DEMU service between Pune and Daund will do two trips everyday. The first service Pune-Daund (71407) will leave Pune Station at 10.30 am reaching Daund at 12.35 pm, taking halts at Hadapsar, Manjari Budruk, Loni, Uruli Kanchan, Yavat, Khutbao, Kedgaon, Kadethan and Patas. The down service, Daund-Pune, will commence from Daund at 12.43 pm and will arrive at Pune Station at 2.13 pm. The other service Pune-Daund (70409) will depart from Pune Station at 2.20 pm and will
wait till PF works in PA-DD section gets done+ABS work in PA-LNL stretch, then they may get more slots and get over the low PF issue, allowing them to run EMU's finally.
NEW DELHI: Ravindra Gaikwad, the Shiv Sena MP who decided that not being able to fly business class merited a lengthy assault on an airline employee, says he's the wronged party. The former school teacher wants Air India to be investigated for ill-treating him. This after he told reporters that he used his sandal to hit a 60-year-old Air India manager 25 times. The Shiv Sena this evening justified not taking any action against him, despite a large shower of his abuse being filmed. Air India has filed two police cases against him and all airlines have banned him.
Here are the 10 latest developments in this story:
Beware Railways now might be your staff to be beaten with Chappals sorry Sandals if your service is not upto the mark.
All major Airline operators have Black listed this goon and now he can't travel in Plane so took the train. Railway should also ban this arrogant idiot from travelling in trains too.
jab inko janta chappal maregi tab hekdi utteregi
Can Railway actually do that. Most possibly he must have taken a 1A seat in 12952 or 12954. Besides so weird how Delhi Police pounces on AAP MLA in such a hurry but failed to arrest this guy despite 2 FIR against him by Air India. Normal person hota to ab tak COurt Judicial custody mein hota.
Railway staff , airline staff jaise soft nature ke nahi hote. Dono taraf se chappal padhne ki umeed hai.
MP hai bhai or wo bhi ruling party ke coalition partner ka, agar media ka pressure na hota to FIR bhi file nahi hui rehti. Is desk ka Law aam or khaas k liye alag hai sanjeev ji. BTW MP ko arrest karne k liye lok sabha speaker ki approval ki jarurat padti hai sayad.
Delhi govt ke MLA to raato raat uuth jaate hai. MPS ko itni choot mil rakhi hai
Are sab politics hai Sir, waha opposition party thi yahan coalition partner hai.
As expected of a political party of Shiv Sena Standards this was bound to happen. We may also expect hooliganism at Airport of Pune and Mumbai once their hero who taught AI official manners to deal with MP returns to his home turf by trainclick here
