    Hello Sir,
    I am admired by visiting your profile. You have quoted that you are "SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER IN RAILWAYS". I admired that you are raising question about railways and engine to us. I haven't entered railway engine in my life time. I love to peep at the engine and its part. Nothing will be visible so clearly.

    I dont know much about the train and its gear. But in movies we find train has a handle thing that is pulled towards forward to move the train faster. You can find that clearly in hollywood movie Spiderman first part and bollywood movie Ra-One. Train can move at the speed as much faster as it moves faster.

    just i wanted to tell that there is no gear system in engine. it is only a generator to produce electricity. the current produced is supplied to motors which rotate the wheel.

    ICF is called Integral Coach Factory because earlier the floor part, side walls, roof will be joined by bolts and nuts/ rivets. now due to welding technology they are made as single part by welding together. hence it is an integral coach

    Can ELECTRICITY pass through Flash light of the Digital camera to your body??? Yes it is 100% true..!

    This is a true incidence reported of a boy aged 19, who was studying in 1st year of engineering, who died in Keshvani Hospital, Mumbai. He was admitted in the Hospital as a burned patient. Reason ??????

    This boy had gone to Amravati (a place located in State of Maharashtra ) on a study tour, on their return they were waiting at the railway station to catch the train. Many of them started taking pictures of their friends using "Mobile Phones" and / or "Digital Camera". One of them complained that, he was unable to capture the full group of friends in one frame in the Digicam.
    This boy moved away to a distance to get the whole group.

    He failed to notice that at an angle above his head, 40,000 volts electrical line was passing through.
    As soon as he clicked the digital camera? 40,000 volt current passed through the camera flash light to his camera and then from his camera to his fingers & to his body. All this happened within a fraction of a second. His body was half burned.
    They arranged for an ambulance & his burned body was brought to Keshavani Hospital, Mumbai.

    For one & half days or so he was conscious & talking. Doctors did not have much hopes as there was a lot of complex issues in his body. He passed away later.
    Now how many of us are aware about these technical threats & dangers? Even if we are, how many of us are adhering??

    Now should we call ourselves as educated and knowledgeable people?
    * Please avoid mobile phones on petrol outlets.
    * Please avoid talking on mobile phones while driving.
    * Change that "Chalta Hai Yaar Attitude".
    * Please avoid talking on mobile phones while kept in charging mode without disconnecting from wall socket.
    * Please do not keep mobile phones on your bed while charging and / on wooden furniture.
    * Avoid using mobile phones / Digital cameras near high voltage electrical lines like in railway stations and avoid using flash.
