What is SMART COACH ?
➡️The Modern Coach Factory, Raebareli has built a “Smart Coach,” which is currently stationed at the lHB platform and is equipped with the state-of-the-art sensors and a centralised computer to monitor the status of all sensors through a single window. The chairman of the Railway Board, Ashwani lohani, inspected the newly built “Smart Coach” at the Safdarjung Railway Station in the presence of Rajesh Agarwal, the general manger of the Modern Coach Factory, and Arun Arora, the principal chief mechanical engineer of the Northern Railway. lohani expressed his satisfaction on the newly turned out “Smart Coach”, built indigenously under the Make in India initiative. lohani said, “100 new such coaches are to be rolled out in the...
1. The SMART coach has a “vibration-based self power harvesting sensor” that is there on the axle box. This helps predict wheel defects, defects on the bearings, and hard spot (defects) on the track. What this means is that Indian Railways will now be able to plan maintenance as per need. This will also eliminate line failures.
2. SMART coach has a Passenger Information and Coach Computing Unit (PICCU) a CPU that is similar to an industrial grade computer. This has been provided with GSM network which sends ‘exception reports’ to...

Among WAP5s there are two known locomotives that are capable of 200km/h. They both have 59:35:19 gear ratio.
No.30086 has normal shell
No.30164 has aerodynamic shell.
Is it possible to push loco or coaches with human efforts?
This is because there is very less friction between the wheels of the locomotive and the train.
This is the fundamental principle based on which railways were developed. Steel wheels on steel rails experience far lesser friction than say, rubber wheels on a road (like trucks and cars). In fact the friction reduces by almost 85-95%, which makes it extremely easy to pull or push very heavy loads on rail tracks.
As an example, using very simple approximations and numbers, one can illustrate how easy it is to move things on rails.
