WDM 3A 16153 waiting for starter with DELHI bound Sadbhavna Express at Platform Number 1. _____________________________________________ introduction with CBC coupling
Center Buffer Coupling (CBC): This Coupling system was being used in Railways but was not used for passenger coaches till 2000. We find this coupler in all freight train. The improved design is begin used for passenger coaches from 1998. Around 20 Coaches were imported at the beginning and later with the TOT (Transfer Of Technology) these are being manufactured in India. These coaches are found in Prestigious trains like Rajdhani, Shatabdhi, Duronto & in some recently introduced AC Express. The LHB Coaches which are used for majority of these trains have this coupler configuration. These coaches are manufactured at RCF Rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala. There are some Trains which have ICF made coaches (Integral Coach Factory ) which are blue in colour having such configuration Pros & Cons 1) The Vibrations produced and jerks due to sudden accleration and deceleration of the train are less compared to the other coupler. 2)If any of the coaches are damaged during its run the coaches replacement is possible because the any near by major junction would have a good number of their spare coaches having screw coupling configuration than the other one. 3)When a train derails due to this screw coupling which is not strong and compact in nature will make the coaches collide, climb and crash with each other and the deaths toll will be high. This is the major reason why the other coupling system came into the scenario. #HDP Clicks 👌👍
