**SALIENT FEATURES OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF WAGONS**
1. LENGTH OVER COUPLER (in mm)

IR will propose to eliminate a level crossing only when they undertake doubling of a track or when traffic rises beyond a threshold. A rule says the Centre and the State should contribute equally to any such project. The rule mandates that a ROB, with cost equally split, can be built if the number of Train Vehicle Units (TVU) crosses one lakh, or the LC gate is required to be closed for train passage 12 or more times within a 24-hour period. TVU is the total number of trains that passes through the LC multiplied by the number of vehicles that cuts across the Crossing in 24 hours. TVU increases when more trains are run during doubling, quadrupling and line electrification. Road traffic is blocked for long periods during these times. Often, ROB or RUB projects are considered only when the local MLA or MP takes interest to get an undertaking...
Why few Indian neighbour countries are not connected with Railway?
Pakistan and Bangladesh were just parts of British India before partition. So the British constructed a lot of railway lines to these regions and there was a large flow of passenger and freight traffic at that time. Whatever lines we have now to these countries, were laid decades ago before independence. Just to maintain some connectivity, some of these lines have been reopened now.
Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal and Myanmar, were different.
Sri Lanka is an island, requiring a 30-35km long bridge over the the Bay of Bengal to get a...
Nepal too, was never ruled by the British. However, Nepal's rulers were pro-British, and received a lot of assistance from them (Though they did have some wars initially).
As a result, there used to be 2 major lines connecting Nepal and India. An NG line from Jaynagar (in India) and an MG line from Raxaul. The MG from Raxaul fell into disuse in the 70's. The NG line from Jaynagar used to operate until recently and is now being replaced with a BG line.
Myanmar is a more interesting case. It was also a British colony and was at one time ruled as a part of British India. All pre-independence Railway board reports also contain information about railways in Myanmar( then Burma). And works were started at one time, to connect the Indian subcontinent with Myanmar with an MG line.
India's eastern border with Myanmar is completely hilly, with a very extreme terrain.This makes running any railway lines through Nagaland, Manipur or Mizoram essentially impossible.
The only possible route is through Bangladesh. The construction of a...
in fact, i recently visited Janakpur in Nepal and i could see the tracks - complete in all aspects - passing in the centre of the town. on enquiring, came to know that this line has been laid by India and connects Jainagar in Bihar with Janakpur in Nepal. Even though everything seemed ready, including the level crossings and signals and all, why the services have not started was puzzling. Residents of Janakpur town in Nepal were heavily dependent of the MG line to Jaynagar - Bihar and are eagerly awaiting the commencement of services on this newly laid BG line between Janakpur and Jainagar.
Agar sri lanka wala connection ho jae to tourism industry udhar 200-300% badh jaegi
But both nation govt is not interested
But its high time really that both India-Sri join hand for construction of Dhanushkodi-Talaimannar rail projects..
For bhutan, they were planning but for that sikkim to be connected and for sikkim the construction is going on
Hope for best
For myanmar there is international cargo corridor is plan from thaliand to europe via mayanmar-india-pak etc
But for that 1. India to connect its 7 sister states and near by states of myanmar from India side
Agartala pahuch gae h kohima b pahuch jaenge uske baad myanmar se connection krenge
Myanmar BG hoga fir uske baad international corridor banega
Modi ji for
Reopening in Thalaimannar Pier
The entire line was completed up to Talaimannar on 2015. The Indian Railway Construction Company Limited (IRCON) carried out the construction work of both stages...
The Boat Mail or Indo-Ceylon Express was a combined train and steamer ferry service between India and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Connecting Chennai and Colombo, the system initially utilised a rail-to-sea operation, but changed to a rail-to-sea-to-rail operation. Passengers could buy a single ticket for the journey
In 1964 a passenger train was washed into the sea by huge waves during the 1964 cyclone, when nearing Dhanushkodi. The railway tracks and the pier at Dhanushkodi were also destroyed. Following this, the Indian portion of the train service now only operates up to Rameswaram
Right now, a direct rail link to Afghanistan is not feasible, as it has to pass either through Pakistan or PoK.
While India does share a border with Afghanistan in the disputed PoK region, it is virtually impossible to construct any economical railway lines in the area. The entire PoK region (for hundreds of kilometers) is hilly and is home to some of the highest peaks in the Himalayas.
Any railway project here will be ridiculously costly. For comparison, the Jammu-Baramulla line, which only has one short section cutting through the...

Why is sand used in locomotives?
The locomotive uses a neat trick to increase the traction. In front of each wheel is a nozzle that uses compressed air to spray sand, which is stored in two tanks on the locomotive. The sand dramatically increases the traction of the drive wheels.
As per IZN DLS it was used in rainy time
Because in rain when they apply for brakes
Wheel slips many times hence a button is present in Cab
To which they press it and the sand from the sand box fall on wheels so that friction can maintain and wheel will not slip further
