Mysuru/New Delhi: With the relocation of Tipu Armoury completed, train services on the new double track between Mysuru and Bengaluru would commence within July 15, according to sources in the Railway Department.
American company PSL-Wolfe Private Limited and New Delhi-based PSL Engineering took up the relocation works of the 228-year-old armoury on March 6, 2017, for which the Railways spent about Rs. 13.5 crore. The nearly 1000 tonne armoury was moved 100 mts away from the original site and the relocation was completed on March 10.
After the relocation of the armoury, the

Railway authorities inspected the track doubling works several times and found no deficiency in it.
Sources said that a team from the Statutory Board of the Railways (Commissioner for Railway Safety) would inspect the newly laid double track this week to find out the efficiency and submit its report along with the Efficiency Certificate to the Board.
The Board, after examining the report by the Statutory Board team, would give its green signal for the commencement of train services on the new track, sources added.
Soon, travel in Economy AC coaches with cheaper price
Train passengers will soon have option of travelling in a new class of ‘Economy AC coaches’ with fares less than normal 3AC tariff.
The proposed fully AC train will have three-tier Economy AC coaches besides AC-3, AC-2 and AC-1 classes as part of the transformation exercise. An added feature would be automatic doors. The Railways is exploring an idea to introduce fully AC trains in select routes, aiming to provide comfort by facilitating AC travel for maximum passengers.
An exercise has been undertaken for a transformation in service by upgrading existing facilities in trains and stations and a separate cell has been created by the railways for this.
“There will not be any chilling effect like in other AC classes and the temperature will be fixed around 24-25 degrees. The aim is to make the passengers comfortable and not make them feel the outside heat,” a senior Railway Ministry official said.

नई दिल्ली. 18वीं सदी में बना 235 साल पुराना और 1000 टन वजनी टीपू सुल्तान का हथियारखाना 40 मीटर दूर शिफ्ट कर दिया गया है। रेलवे ने डबल ट्रैक बिछाने के लिए हेरिटेज प्रॉपर्टीज में शामिल टीपू की इस आर्मरी (हथियारखाना) को दूसरी जगह शिफ्ट किया है। देश में यह अपनी तरह की पहली एक्सरसाइज मानी जा रही है। इस पर 13 करोड़ रुपए खर्च हुए हैं। हथियारखाने का का इस्तेमाल बारूद और हथियार रखने में किया जाता था। अमेरिकी एक्सपर्ट्स की ली गई मदद...

को टीपू सुल्तान के वक्त में 1782 से 1799 तक इस्तेमाल किया गया था। यह बेंगलुरु- मैसूर के बीच प्रपोज्ड डबल रेलवे ट्रैक के रास्ते में स्थित थी।
- रेलवे मिनिस्ट्री के एक सीनियर ऑफिशियल ने बताया, "हमने पिरामिड के आकार की इस पूरी हेरिटेज बिल्डिंग को 40 मीटर दूर खिसका दिया है। इस दौरान इस प्रोटेक्टेड प्रॉपर्टी को कोई भी नुकसान नहीं पहुंचा।"
अमेरिकी एक्सपर्ट्स की ली गई मदद
- इंडियन रेलवे ने इस पूरी एक्सरसाइज में अमेरिका के एक्सपर्ट्स की मदद ली। इस मॉन्युमेंट को श्रीरंगपट्टनम से पास ही में रेलवे की जमीन पर शिफ्ट किया गया है। बेंगलुरु-मैसूर डबल लाइन के लिए कंस्ट्रक्शन वर्क 2013 में ही शुरू हो गया था, लेकिन इसे पूरा करने में दिक्कत आ रही थी क्योंकि आर्मरी इसके रास्ते में पड़ रही थी।
- रेलवे मिनिस्ट्री के ऑफिशियल ने कहा, "इस तरह के यूनीक काम को देश में पहली बार अंजाम दिया गया है। देश में ऐसी कोई एजेंसी नहीं थी, न ही कोई ऐसा तरीका था जिससे आर्मरी को खिसकाया जा सके। इसलिए इस काम में अमेरिकी एक्सपर्ट्स की मदद लेनी पड़ी।"
1000 टन वजनी आर्मरी को खिसकाने के लिए 37 जैक लगाए गए
- आर्मरी को खिसकाने के लिए 37 जैक लगाए गए। सभी जैक यूनिफाईंग जैकिंग सिस्टम से जुड़े हुए थे। स्ट्रक्चर को किसी तरह का नुकसान न पहुंचे, इसलिए सभी जैक से इसे एक साथ उठाया गया और फिर 40 मीटर दूर ले जाया गया।
- पिरामिड के आकार वाली यह एक मंजिल आर्मरी थी जिसका वजन 1000 टन था। टीपू सुल्तान ने ऐसी 10 आर्मरी बनवाई थी।

The works on shifting Tipu’s armoury finally began this morning to make way for the completion of Mysuru-Bengaluru Railway double track in Srirangapatna near Mysuru.
Expert engineers, architects and monument shifting experts, who conducted a test to find out the feasibility to move the structure, were successful and the historic structure was moved by 8 metres by using Hydraulic Body Push Rams till we went to the Press today.
The process of relocating the armoury completely to another site, which is 100 metres away from the original site, requires at least

four days.
Sources said that the relocating process, which will continue upto 5.30 pm today, would go on for three to four days until the structure is relocated completely to the new place. The structure will be moved for about 20 metres daily, sources added.
American company PSL-Wolfe Private Limited and New Delhi-based PSL Engineering have taken up the works of relocating the armoury for which the Railways is spending about Rs. 13.5 crore.
It may be recalled that architects, ground engineers and monument shifting experts had lifted the nearly 1000-tonne armoury last month and had placed it on a series of iron piers for support and to be moved.
The digging process around the semi-buried armoury began about five months ago and the path through which the armoury would be carried to the new location has been readied. Steel fabrics for all the beams had been fixed. It may be recalled, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha, who visited the spot on Feb. 23, had inspected the lifting process of the structure besides holding talks with the engineers.
According to the officials supervising the shifting process, the armoury, used by Tipu Sultan to store gunpowder and weapons, was built to withstand vagaries of weather for the gunpowder to stay in a ready-to-use condition.
