Railway News: Bhopal, Navdunia representative. The West-Central Railway (WCR) has improved 10,000 km of track in a year. The special thing is that this work has been done without stopping the passenger trains or by stopping them for a very short time. For this, three modern tamping machines have been used. Earlier, for this work, trains had to be stopped for a long time from place to place. Then the gangmen’s team used to make corrections and passengers used to reach late from one station to another. These modern machines accomplish the tasks to be done by gangmen in less time with far greater accuracy and faster speed. In Bhopal, Jabalpur and Kota divisions of West-Central Railway, this work has been done within a year.

Advantages of using modern machines
Usually blocks have to be taken for track repair work. Meaning, in the rail section where there is improvement, either the trains are run at a slow speed or the train does not enter that track for some time. Till then the trains have to pass through the other track. This increases the pressure, hence delays and inconvenience to passengers. The work done by machines is more durable. Its quality is good. There is no need for frequent maintenance and even if it does, the machines get the job done quickly. In this way passengers avoid all these troubles. Railways also benefit. He is able to run the trains on time.
