EMU trains with a different look

Written by: Staff

Kharagpur, West Bengal, Jul 6 (UNI) EMU trains with an altogether different look are going to be introduced in the suburban section of Howrah under the South-Eastern Railway at the end of this month.

These trains, now undergoing stringent Technical Test in Tikiapara, will be more convenient for passengers as they can take a less bumpy ride because of air spring instead of steal spring in the coaches.

Mr V K Raina, General Manager of South Eastern Railway, was talking to reporters here today after commissioning the first ever Bio- Diesel production plant of the Eastern Region with the capacity of 2000 lt per day.

Ten autonomous tickets vending machines are also going to be installed in different stations between Howrah and Kharagpur, where unreserved tickets for short distances will be available to passengers by paying exact fares, he added.

A training course for ticket checkers, booking clerks and other employees is going to be started at Kharagpur from tomorrow for teaching them right type of behaviours with the passengers, the GM said.

A private professional agency is going to impart this training on which the railway administration is going to emphasise with immediate effect, he said.

He urged the peasants to produce more "Jatropha" seeds in their lands and get a good price from the railways as the railways can produce a very small part of this seed which is required as raw material for producing the bio-diesel.
