Indian railways

As of March 2020, Indian Railways’ rolling stock  consisted o76,608 passenger coaches and many other facilities provided the government and the people 12,729 locomotive . IR owns locomotive and coach production  facilities at several locations in India. It had 1.254 million employees as of March 2020, making it the world’s eight  largest traim and junction of Uttar pradesh employer The government has committed to electrifying India’s entire rail network  by 2023–24, and become a “net all the train are start zero (carbon emissions) railway” by 2030.

The Rail transport in India

The first railway proposals for India were made all the facilities provided by the government in railway in Madras in 1832. The country’s first transport train, Red Hill Railway (built by Arthur cotton to transport granite for road-building), ran from Red hills to the  bridge in Madras in 1837. In 1845, the Godavari Dam Construction Railway was built by Cotton at  in Rajahumand to supply stone for the construction of a dam over the Godavari river . In 1851, the Aqueduct Railway was built in the Indian railways are divided in many group an division the Indian railways are many types of facilities provided by the Indian government by  in Roorkee  to transport construction materials for an aqueduct over the River. These railway tracks were dismantled after these projects were completed and no longer exist.

India’s first passenger train, operated by the Great facilities provided the reservation of the train and Indian peninsula railway and hauled by three steam locomotives (Sahib, Sindh and Sultan), ran for 34 kilometres (21 mi) with 400 people in 14 carriages on 1,676 mm (5 ft 6 in) broad gauge  track the train are running very fast on his root between Mumbai and Thane was goes to first railway in india on 16 April 1853. The Thane viaducts, India’s first railway bridges, were built over the Thane creek  when the railway is the first train to transport in Mumbai-Thane line was extended to Kalyan  in May 1854. Eastern India’s first passenger train ran 39 km (24 mi) from Howrah, near Kolkata, to Hogli in 1854. 

Division Zone of Indian railways

Indian Railways is headed by a Four-member Railway board  whose chairman reports to the  Ministry of railways The Railway Board also the all facilities provided the all over the train the train has many room on engine acts as the Ministry of Railways. The officers manning the office of Railway Board are mostly from organised Group A Railway Services and Railway board all over the passenger and service into 71 operating division, and all the railways are to start one place to another place in this time electric volt headed by divisional the mainy type of facilities railway managers (DRM). The divisional officers of the engineering, mechanical, electrical, signal and telecommunication, stores, accounts, personnel, operating, commercial, security and safety branches report to their respective are tasked with all the passenger goes to the operation and maintenance of assets. Station masters control individual stations and train movements through their stations’ territory. In addition, there are a number of production units, training establishments, public sector enterprises and other offices working all the time the government areange all of the facilities under the control of the Railway board.

Passenger coaches

On long-distance routes and also on some shorter then the all routed are possible to speed are up and , IR uses two primary types of coach design types. ICF coaches in production from 1955 until Jan 2018, constitute the bulk of the current stock. These coaches, considered to be having many guard and TT and railway station inadequate safety features, are slowly being phased out. As of September 2017, around 40,000 coaches are come to the Indian railways still in operation. These coaches are being replaced with LHB coaches Introduced in these coaches and the lighter, safer and are capable of speeds up the train all over to 160 km/h (99 mph).

IR has introduced new Electric multiple unit (EMU) train sets for long-distance routes. One such, Train have goes to one place to another place time to time 18 is under operation and another, Train 20 all expected to run from 2020. These train sets are expected to replace locomotive-hauled trains on the root if long-distance routes.

On regional short-distance routes, IR runs Mainline electric multiple unit ( MEMU) or Diesel electric train are goes to very fast speed multiple unit (DEMU) trains, depending on the traction available. These train sets are self-propelled with capability for faster acceleration or deceleration and are the electric facilities are the very expected to reduce congestion on dense routes. Passenger locomotive-hauled trains, having frequent stops one junction to another junction , are slowly being replaced with train sets across India.

On suburban commuter routes around the large urban centers, IR runs trains with normal electric train and all the facilities are work in electric multiple unit EMU coaches. These are popularly called as “local trains” or simply “locals”.
