This is a good session. I am sorry, I could not post the snippets. Either I had to type or watch and listen. I chose to listen 🙂

Mr. Shyamadhar Ram also pitches in…what a show! This is not a bloggable event. It is a be-there event.
Questions galore. Sridhar is constantly looking at the Starter Signal.

Simon Says…let six trains move.

 That was Mr. Simon the man from Chennai RRI who was behind the entire data set that Sridhar presented. He was answering a question on simultaneous departures. he says that the RRI is equipped to operate six simultaneous movements either way.

It is Sridhar Joshi’s turn to take us thru the RRI cabin operations.

Quite a job! Most of the time, the controllers are on their feet.

 There is a rake line and an engine line apart from the fast and slow lines.

Sridhar showed us the charts and maps of operations and the control panel, its switches and indicators.. Now he is showing us a video of train management

IR had to identify the property by giving complete demographics of the route.

They had to have a 72 hour continuous wait for the certification preceded by a grilling interview without a break.

Justification is important as is the Statement of Outstanding Universal Value.

NMR had to show how the coal quality, supply and usage issue would be dealt with.

Mr. Ram followed his presentation with photographic images of the actual inspection before certification.

By the way, the Certification is not specifically for NMR but for Mountain Railway of India that includes the DHR (Darjeeling) too.

A lot of questoions followed. This was a good presentation. A hard copy is available with Sridhar Joshi.
