Mumbai: Western Railway introduces Automatic Sliding Door for local trains between Mahalaxmi and Borivali

Railway officials agreed that while the trial run tested the technical aspects of the ASD- which returned satisfactory results- the real problem is when it will be tested in real-time with the kind of crowds that are natural to Mumbai's suburban system.

The ASD concept is one of the big ticket ideas on the suburban system meant to minimise loss of lives rising out of people falling off crowded trains.

Is it working, curious callers ask railway police helpline

CHENNAI: It has been close to three weeks since the Government Railway Police launched the helpline 1512, but more than 90% of the calls are from curious passengers who want to check if the line is indeed functioning. 

Police personnel manning the line say passengers either disconnect the call without responding or inquire about how the helpline is being operated. The 24-hour emergency call facility, which was launched as per the directive of the ministry of communications and information technology, allows anyone on any train to call 1512 from anywhere in the state and the control room set up specifically for the purpose will respond.
