OPERATING DEPARTMENT FREIGHT 2009 - 2010
FREIGHT OPERATIONS • Implementation of Operation Chetak • Running time of trains was calculated on absolute basis i.e. running was calculated at the speed of 75 Kmph and 60 Kmph (for Sumo rake). Analysis of detention is done against these timings. This has led to improvement in running of trains. Diesel loco utilization improved by 0.47% and electric loco utilization improved by 2.96%. • Extended Crew runs • Emphasis was put on extended crew runs so as to cut down detention at major terminals like Varanasi, Roza, Ambala and Ludhiana. Average 800 crack trains were run per month during 2009-2010as against 598 cracks per month in the last year. The extended crew runs have led to reduction in running timing of power house rakes being received at MGS, 38-40 hrs. which used to be 60 hrs.
Breaking the mould :- • Divisions are being encouraged to provide out of box solution to problems. • Shortage of diesel locos led to running of long haul jumbo empties over Moradabad division. • Now 22 loaded BCN wagons are being run in Haridwar – Rishikesh / Harawala section with single WDG-3 loco as against 14 which were run earlier and full empty rake of jumbo is run with a single power on this section • Multi has been replaced by single WDG4 on PTK-JAT section. • Running of Down trains through to PBH and UP trains on FD loop • To overcome shortage of jumbos N.R. used premium BCN rakes for internal loading and were able to achieve 4 loadings during their premium validity . This helped to maximize loading despite the shortage. • Delhi division streamlined movement between GZB-SBB by making it direction wise reducing the running time to 20-30 min from 1-1:30 hrs. LKO division is also attempting similar exercise. • Formulated guidelines regarding sidings of PCOs • Standardizing statistical formats for divisions.
Enabling through IT :- • New Operating website URL http://10.2.2.19/dept/operating/index.htm • Enables Operating Officers have topic wise availability of circulars : Rate Freight Circulars, Freight Marketing Circulars, Traffic Transportation Circulars and many other useful links. • Archival formats of Central Control to be generated from FOIS and record keeping to be made digital, reducing requirement of storage space and manpower. • Concept Plan:- • Divisions have been asked to make long time plan for enhancement of freight terminal capacity and line capacity. LKO ,MB divisions have been reviewed.
REVENUE EARNING LOADING(In Million Tonnes) Northern Railway has achieved everbest loading during 2009-2010
Status of FOIS projects on Northern Railway Note :- For TMS Phase-II of Phase –II , 139 New locations have been sanctioned
