Mumbai: The Central Railway is ready to roll out a modified, ‘waterproof’ locomotive engine that could be operated even in 12 inches of water. Usually, only 4 inches of water can bring a locomotive engine to halt and force the train to stay put until water on the tracks recede.

More Information:

  • A senior Central Railway official said, the modified locomotive engine can move local trains as well as long-distance trains that get stuck on tracks due to water-logging.
  • Central Railway chief PRO Sunil Udasi said,”In the view of heavy rainfall adversely affecting suburban train services since the last few years, we have developed a modified locomotive engine which will be handy to pull out rakes marooned in rain waters.”
  • The modified & waterproof locomotive engine can pull out rakes even in 12 inches of water, which would avoid train services getting bunched up due to flooded tracks, he said.
  • The engine, modified at the Kurla carshed, is ready for use and can be deployed anytime if needed.
