The compilation of Car Carrier Trains is as follows;
1) After getting overtaken by Andhra Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express, Bhusawal WAG-5A# 23662 and dead Bhusawal WAG-5A move out of Birla Nagar station in Madhya Pradesh with Massive and Superb looking Car Carrier Load. The speed was just perfect for watching and capturing it.
2) My 22110 Hazrat Nizamuddin Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Ac Express took an unscheduled halt of 5mins at Nandgaon Railway Station on Bhusawal - Igatpuri route of Central Railway in Maharashtra. After getting a starter, we smoothly start accelerating and overtake another Car Carrier Train with clean Erode WAG-7.
Indian Railways and Maruti Suzuki flagged off a new high-capacity railway rake which brings the advantages of higher capacity, flexibility, faster speed and environment friendliness to rail transportation of cars. Designed by Indian Railway's Research Design and Standards Organization, these wagons have 20% additional capacity (318 cars in a 27 wagons rake) as compared to the current twin decker rakes (265 cars), used for rail transportation. The new rake, with its height adjustable middle-deck, is highly flexible and can transport vehicles of multiple dimensions. The new rake can move at speed of up to 95 km per hour as compared to 65 km per hour of the existing rakes. Maruti Suzuki is India's first automobile company to procure flexi deck auto-wagon rakes. It has initially procured three such rakes of 27 wagons each. These rakes will be primarily deployed in the high-volume west and south India destinations. In the long term, the company will dispatch cars through railways to several destinations like Nagpur, Siliguri, Mumbai, Pune, Mundra, Kolkata etc. Maruti Suzuki will order more rakes to meet its growing transportation requirement. This will also help in reduction of pollution and make it environmental friendly.
