    Rail projects worth over Rs 60,000 crore with state participation

    NEW DELHI: As many as 16 states have responded till now to Railways' offer of sharing cost of about 40 projects worth over Rs 60,000 crore for speed implementation of laying new lines and development of stations among others.
    Railways has undertaken the steps to mobilise resources over and above the available budgetary resources to fast track execution of projects. "Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had written to all states for becoming partners in rail projects. So far, 16 states have come forward to share cost of 43 projects worth Rs 62,379 crore," said a senior Railway Ministry official, adding "state governments are sharing 25 per cent to 66 per cent cost of the projects."

    The extent of implementation of projects depends upon the response of the state government as some states are also giving land free for the projects.

    Besides strengthening connectivity by laying new lines and doubling, Railways is focusing on station development programmes for enhancement of passenger amenities.

    The aim is to provide better facilities at stations and states like Odisha, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh are keen on developing stations at world class level in their respective states, he said.

    Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Kerala and Odisha governments have signed the joint venture agreement to create state specific joint ventures companies to undertake project development, resource mobilisation and monitoring of mutually identified rail infrastructure projects with equity participation of Railways limited to maximum 50 per cent.

    Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra governments have also agreed to form joint venture companies, the official said.

    The Joint Venture Company can form Project Specific Subsidiary Company (Project SPV) which may have equity holding by other stakeholders like banks, PSUs, ports, mining companies etc. for implementation.

    Railways has arranged extra budgetary resources from financial institutions for which Railway Ministry has signed an MoU with LIC for a loan of 1,50,000 crore to be received over a period of five years, for funding capacity enhancement projects.

    This model of funding should have started decades ago.

    In an attempt to increase the number of elocos available for operations to cope up with the recent surge in electrification across India , Diesel Locomotive Works will be assembling some additional WAP 7s, to assist CLW this FY.

    280-300 E Locos are planned this FY , out of which 173 have been built by November.

    We must focus on improving the tracks. Our new generation engines which are coming are very powerful and capable of even 300 KM speed. Our main constrain is track on which we are unable to go beyond 160 KM pm with existing coach and may go up to 200 KM/ hr with talgo.

    Do lots of logistics currently involve switching from diesel to electric locos at some point in the trip currently? That's the niche area I can see this targetting.

    IIRC, some bombardier passenger locos are operating in New Jersey currently that are "dual mode":

    Not really, but this idea somehow doesn't go in synch with IR's current target of electrifying nearly 35000 kms.
    I'm not sure IR would be able to produce this concept in numbers and such low HP (4500 under 25 kV AC), isn't much good either.

    btw

    Currently few locomotives are changed from Diesel to Electric and vice versa , compared to the relatively large number of Diesel under wires cases.

    Further only in few cases its change in locomotives due to traction change, a major part is that the journey forward of a particular train falls under hands of other zone after a certain junction.

    I have traveled a couple of times from Jharkhand Swarns Jayanti from Ranchi to Delhi. Even though the track is all electrified , the journey from Ranchi start with Alco Twins which are later changed by WAP 4 from Kanpur.
