Belagavi Railway Pitline Commisioned
Belagavi Railway Pitline:
Today is a historic day for the Indian Railways and Belagavi as the successful trial of the Belagavi Railway Pitline is done by the WDP-4 #OnlyOneEarth and is a great achievement. This is a new step in progress for the Indian Railways and will help in the commissioning of the new Belagavi Railway Station’s Pitline. The Coaching Depot is a state-of-the-art maintenance depot and is equipped with the latest technology. This is a great achievement for the Indian Railways and Belagavi and will help in the smooth running of trains.
The Belagavi Railway Station’s new pit line has been built on the south side. The pit line’s length of 640 meters will allow it to accommodate a train rake of 24 Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches. Additionally, 26 Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches can be operated on this pitline.
The additional pit line is a fantastic addition to the Belagavi railway station because it will allow it to accommodate more trains and give passengers greater service.
Pit lines are a crucial piece of infrastructure needed to do basic maintenance on passenger coaches. Under-gear examination, checking of brake system, electrical maintenance, cleaning, washing both exterior and interior, checking amenity fittings, watering of coaches, etc., are carried out at the pit lines after every scheduled voyage of a particular passenger carrying train.
Coaches are certified fit for 96 hours (four days) of runs from the Carriage Depot following maintenance at the pit line. Along with the trip attention, coaches’ monthly and tri-monthly schedules are executed in pit lines. At regular intervals, pit lines also perform maintenance on bio-toilets and the draining of water tanks.
