DIMAPUR —Continuing its effort towards making train journeys safer and secure, the N.F. Railway (NFR) has installed “Thick Web Switch Point” machines with clamp type locking in 24 stations across the zone this month.

An update from NFR further informed that it has carried out various upgrades and replacements to its existing signalling system at several sections within the zone, including commissioning of intermediate block signalling between Bagrakot and Sivok section which will increase the operational capacity of the section, resulting in movement of more trains.

“Data logger has been installed and commissioned at Pawakhali station in Katihar Division for electronically monitoring operation of various safety gears. Electric lifting barriers have been replaced at six level crossing gates in Rangiya division to enhance the safety at level crossing gates. 14.715 km signalling cable have been newly laid at various stations in Tinsukia, Lumding, Rangiya and Katihar divisions. Automatic fire detection and alarm system have been commissioned at 10 locations over the zone as a part of safety measures to prevent any damage to the railway properties,” read the press release.

“System integrity testing has been carried out at 32 level crossing gates of N. F. Railway. A total of 916 signalling batteries of varied capacities were also been replaced in all the five divisions, enabling better reliability of safety gears,” it added.
