    Frameless BTFLN wagons made by Braithwaite & Co Kolkata in technical collaboration with Azovmash Ukraine. These weigh about 3.5 Ton light compared to BTPN tankers and can carry about 2.5 Ton more.

    Is there any plan by IR to link all trains and their drivers/pilots via satcom to guide them of any instructions till their next official stop as well as for the rail maintenance and monitoring teams to input the location of their activity or emergency being performed?

    Agreed. He is one of the few fellows that I like. Propaganda or not, his actions can be seen directly used by common man. A win.

    Scene of Nagpur Mumbai CSTM Duronto derailment near Asangaon.
    The driver of WAP 7 had to apply emergency brakes after he spotted a landslide. The coaches and loco derailed, but LHB coaches, didn't climb or turned turtled, saving lives.
