Chennai: By June this year, the railways will roll out a ‘first of its kind’ semi-high speed, self-propelled train set which will cut down the travel time by at least 20% in comparison to any train drawn by a loco due to faster acceleration and deceleration. The Chennai-based Railways’ Integral Coach Factory (ICF) has designed the train sets and will manufacture the first with 16 fully air-conditioned coaches by June 2018.

travel. Another set of train, named Train 20, is likely to be launched in 2020. These will also be equipped with world class facilities to replace another elite train, Rajdhani Express, used in overnight travel.
Both Train 18 and Train 20, ‘Make in India’ projects by ICF, will be manufactured for half the cost of imported train sets. The only difference will be that Train 20 will have an aluminium body while Train 18 will have stainless steel body.
The train sets (like EMUs), which will replace locomotivehauled trains, will have continuous window glasses for a contemporary modern look; ‘automatic plug-type’ sliding doors and sliding footsteps which will open and close automatically at the stations and zero discharge vacuum-based bio-toilets.
ICF general manager S Mani said, “Train 18 can travel at speeds of up to 160 kmph. It will have world-class facilities for passengers. First set of train will be ready by June 2018.”
A study shows the railways will be able to cut travel time by three hours and thirty-five minutes on the 1,440-km Delhi-Howrah route.
The Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express can go up to 150 kmph, but the average speed continues to be 90 kmph as there are several speed restrictions. Given that applying brakes and accelerating takes longer using locomotives, the 'train sets' will cut down on time.

मुंगेर। मॉडल स्टेशन पर यात्रियों की सुरक्षा भगवान के भरोसे है। यहां यात्रियों और सामानों के जांच की कोई सुविधा नहीं है। कुछ भी लेकर प्लेटफॉर्म पर जा सकते हैं। ट्रेन में सवार हो सकते हैं। कुछ ऐसा ही हाल स्टेशन की है। नक्सली बंद या देश में आतंकी घटना के बाद स्टेशन और प्लेटफार्म की सुरक्षा बढ़ा दी जाती है। लेकिन एक दो दिनों के बाद स्थिति जस की तस दिखने लगती है। रविवार को स्टेशन पर सुरक्षा व्यवस्था का जायजा लेने पर स्थिति दावों के ठीक विपरीत दिखी। स्टेशन की सुरक्षा पूरी तरह लचर दिखी। यहां न तो यात्रियों को चेक किया जा रहा था न इनकी सामानों को। यात्री आराम से आते जाते रहे। स्टेशन पर रोजाना 42 और खगड़िया बेगसराय की रूट की 3 जोड़ी गाड़ियों का परिचालन खगड़िया, बेगूसराय सेक्शन पर होता है। रेलवे के अनुसार करीब 90 हजार यात्रियों का आना जाना होता है। इसमें...

से कभी भी एक भी यात्रियों की जांच नहीं होती है। जब कुछ घटनाएं होती हैं तभी आरपीएफ सजग होती है। नतीजतन ट्रेन और प्लेट़फॉर्म की सुरक्षा भगवान भरोसे ही है। वर्तमान में जीआरपी के पास दो और आरपीएफ के पास छह हैंड मेटल डिटेक्टर है। 8 हैंड डिटेक्टर पर 90 हजार यात्रियों की जांच की जिम्मेवारी है। स्टेशन पर निगरानी के लिए सीसीटीवी कैमरे नहीं लगाए गए हैं । रेलवे स्टेशन पर सुरक्षा के पुख्ता इंतजाम तो दूर मुख्य द्वार लगे मेटल डिटेक्टर तक चालू महीनों से बंद है। यात्रियों के सामान की एक्सरे जांच की भी व्यवस्था नहीं है। यहां से दर्जनों गाड़ियां आती जाती हैं और हजारों लोगों की भीड़ यहां होती है। ऐसे में कोई भी बड़ी वारदात को अंजाम दे सकते है। प्लेटफार्म पर पहुंचने के लिए दो प्रवेश द्वार हैं।

कुछ माह पहले ही पकड़े गए हैं हथियार
निरंतर चे¨कग न होने का शरारती तत्व फायदा उठा रहे हैं। हाल ही में ट्रेन से अवैध अर्धनिर्मित हथियार के साथ कुछ बदमाश ट्रेन में सवार हो गए थे । लेकिन उस दिन ट्रेन में जीआरपी ने अचानक चे¨कग शुरू कर दी और सभी को दबोच लिया था। इससे पहले भी कई लोग अवैध हथियार के साथ पकड़े जा चुके हैं।

Indian Railways is all set to roll out a ‘first of its kind’ semi-high speed self-propelled train set! Yes, the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) will ‘Make in India’ the EMUs (Electric Multiple Units) that can travel at speeds of up to 160 kmph. According to ICF, the train sets will allow for quicker acceleration and will be a technological leap for the coach factory. The train sets are currently in the design stage and will start getting manufacturing some time in 2018. For this reason, Indian Railways has codenamed the project as ‘Train-2018’. What makes these train sets special, apart from the fact that they mark a leap for ICF, is that they will be manufactured at “half the cost” if the same were to be imported!

new train will have 16 fully air-conditioned coaches, and will boast of ‘world-class’ passenger amenities. Proposed for inter-city superfast travel, the train sets will replace locomotive-hauled intercity express trains. The train sets will have ‘Automatic Plug-Type’ doors which will open and close automatically at the stations. Like most chair cars, the train will have wide windows.
Indian Railways All Set To Roll Out 'Make In India' Self-Propelled Train

Keeping in mind passenger entertainment, Indian Railways proposes to equip the new train sets with onboard Wi-fi and infotainment. The train will also boast of GPS-based Passenger Information System to keep passengers informed about the location of the train. “The new train will have world-class facilities for passengers. The train will have plush interiors and diffused LED lighting. The toilets of these coaches will be fitted with zero discharge vaccum based bio-toilets and touch free fittings,” an ICF official told FE Online.
“The train set will be equipped with under slung 3 Phase IGBT based propulsion system which is energy efficient. Train 2018 will also offer more passenger space,” the ICF official said. All coaches of Train-18 will be inter-connected by fully sealed gangways. This will allow passengers to move from one coach to another with ease.
Indian Railways, EMU, train sets What’s special about the new Train-2018 set
Additionally, ICF is looking to equip the train sets with improved mechanical couplers and modern bogies. “This will help keep the jerks and vibrations at bay,” the official said. “The train will have fully suspended traction motors, pneumatic secondary suspension and anti-roll bar. The brake system will be Electro Pneumatic, which will reduce the braking distance, so that full speed potential of the train can be harnessed,” the official said, adding that Train-2018 will have “many modern features which will debut for the first time on Indian Railways”.
The idea to develop these modern train sets was an outcome of the “Rail Vikas Shivir” that was organised by Indian Railways late last year. This also fits in with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s ‘Mission Raftaar’ that was announced in Rail Budget 2016. Under Mission Raftaar, Indian Railways proposes to double the average speeds of freights trains and increase the average speed of superfast mail/express trains by 25 kmph in the next 5 years.

Given that applying brakes and accelerating takes longer using locomotives, the 'train sets' will cut down on time. The reduction in journey time was calculated at a maximum permissible speed of 130 kmph and could come down further if the permissible limit is raised to 160 kmph.
