Mumbai railway officials not too enthused with minister's Special Purpose Vehicle remark

Railway minister Suresh Prabhu's tweet on his talk with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis about a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to speed up state railway projects has raised its fair share of smirks among city-based railway officials.
"What exactly is Mumbai Vikas Railway Corporation (MRVC) if not an SPV, jointly owned by railways and Maharashtra government?" asked one senior railway official.

Mumbai: Over 10,000 railway commuters had tough time reaching their destinations

After the rail roko at Diva and Dombivali railway stations, more than 10,000 commuters heading for different places on Central Railway locals had a difficult time reaching their destinations. Many couldn't reach their work stations and were forced to take either a paid leave or simply sit at home.

One of the commuters, Niraj Singh, an MBA student, who was heading to Thane from Dadar for an interview, said: "As soon as the train crossed Nahur it stopped for more than an hour. I never thought that a broken pantograph would cause so much damage. Not just local residents, even other commuters were hit as they were left stranded for two hours. I got down from the train at Nahur and walked up to Thane, but couldn't make it in time, and so sought another date for my interview. Going back to Dadar took me another three hours as the train I boarded was running slow."

Another commuter who didn't want to be named said: "I went to the railway officer's cabin, but was told to remain outside and speak. Later they summoned police officials to prevent people from directly entering inside to talk to the officer who had no knowledge on how to deal with the issue."

A motormen from Dadar local said: "I feel bad about the commuters. Many had to take leave today. There were many women and children in the crowd and they had problems reaching their destinations. When my train reached Thane, I heard the noise of something falling on the train-shed. Immediately I alerted our officer. When I came out to check who was throwing stones, the station was so crowded that it was difficult to find the culprit. We have send a memo to the station master in this regard, and investigation is on."

Mumbai railway chaos: The anger is not at trains, but an uncaring govt

To view the Diva rampage as a manifestation of annoyance at disruption of morning peak hour commuting due to a malfunctioning pantograph would be simplistic.

It would be equally simplistic to see it as a build-up of anger at the inadequate and poor service by the Central railway. It could well be a rage at being seen as second-class citizens by the state.

Railways go green, create separate wing for environment management

New Delhi: Going ahead with the mission to conserve water and energy, the railways have constituted a separate directorate to make the national transporter environment-friendly.

Environment Management Directorate, the new wing of the Railways, will be responsible for ensuring effective utilisation of water resources, said a senior railway ministry official.

Mumbai: Miscreants steal cash and coupons from Diva railway station during protests

Miscreants stole cash and coupons worth Rs 1.18 lakh, the police said, adding that this included Rs 54,906 in cash. Ticketing clerks ran for their lives after the mob began pelting stones at the booking office, after which miscreants cleaned took over the office and stole cash and coupons.

रोहतक-रेवाड़ी ट्रैक पर पहली बार दौड़ा सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक

रोहतक-रेवाड़ी ट्रैक पर पहली बार दौड़ा सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक
रोहतक. रोहतक-रेवाड़ी ट्रैक पर शुक्रवार की शाम सीएनजी कंप्रेस्ड नेचुरल गैस चालित सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक का परिचालन शुरू किया गया। स्टेशन अधीक्षक भगवान सहाय मीणा की उपस्थिति में ट्रेन को हरी झंडी दिखाई गई। नए साल के दूसरे दिन शुरू हुई इस पहल को रोहतक जोन में प्रदूषण कम करने के प्रयास के रूप में देखा जा रहा है। रेलवे द्वारा सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक गुरुवार को रोहतक भेज गया था। इसे शुक्रवार की शाम 6:00 बजे रोहतक स्टेशन के प्लेटफार्म नंबर 2 से रवाना किया गया। यह गाड़ी सोमवार से शनिवार तक रोहतक-रेवाड़ी रेलवे ट्रैक पर शाम को 5:30 बजे रोहतक से रवाना होगी और शाम 7:30 बजे रेवाड़ी पहुंचेगी। अगले दिन सुबह 7:25 बजे रेवाड़ी से चलकर 9:25 पर रोहतक पहुंचेगी।

सीएनजी से खर्च में आएगी कमी
सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक के संचालन में 30 फीसदी कंप्रेस्ड नेचुरल गैस और 70 फीसदी डीजल का प्रयोग किया जा रहा है। सीएनजी के प्रयोग से जहां खर्च में कमी आएगी, वहीं पर वायु प्रदूषण भी कम होगा। शकूर बस्ती में सीएनजी की रिफिलिंग होगी।
रविवार को बंद रहेगा रैक
सीएनजी डीएमयू रैक का संचालन सोमवार से शनिवार के बीच चलाया जाएगा। रविवार को संचालन ठप रहेगा। डीएमयू शेड के अधिकारी रविंद्र कुमार राणा ने बताया कि शनिवार को अपना चक्कर पूरा करने के बाद रैक को शकूर बस्ती लाया जाएगा, जहां मेंटीनेंस के साथ ही सीएनजी की रिफिलिंग की जाएगी।
इंजन में सीएनजी का प्रयोग किफायती
सीएनजी डीजल से सस्ती है। सीएनजी के प्रयोग से प्रदूषण के स्तर में भी कमी आएगी। इसलिए रेल इंजन में सीएनजी का प्रयोग किफायती व पर्यावरण के अनुकूल है। जानकारी के अनुसार रेलवे ने 50 ट्रेनों को सीएनजी से चलाने के लिए काम शुरू कर दिया है। इसके लिए तीन अलग कंपनियों को 50 डीपीसी (डीईएमयू पावर कार) को डीजल सीएनजी ड्यूल फ्यूल मोड में परिवर्तित करने का काम सौंपा गया है।
ड्यूल फ्यूल मोड तकनीक का प्रयोग
सीएनजी डीएमयू इंजन में चार नाॅक के बाद कंप्रेस्ड नेचुरल गैस काम करने लगती है। इसके पहले उसे डीजल मोड में रखा जाता है। डीजल-सीएनजी ड्यूल फ्यूल मोड में परिवर्तित किए गए डीपीसी में एक साथ डीजल व सीएनजी दोनों ईंधन का प्रयोग होता है। यानी एक साथ डीजल व सीएनजी दोनों जलेंगे। इसके साथ ही इसे सिर्फ डीजल से चलाने का भी विकल्प शामिल है।
