Indian Railway Facts: Indian Railway (Indian Railway) is the fourth in the world and the second largest rail network in Asia. The train is a means of traffic in which a person of every class travels. If you have ever traveled in a train, then you will know that the entire train is controlled by an engine. At the same time, the engine of the train consists of a driver, which is called a loco pilot. But think what will happen if the driver of the train gets sleepy? Will the train fall victim to a big accident? Let's tell.

There are two drivers in the train

You will know that thousands of passengers travel together in the train. In such a situation, the railway has taken out an idea for no accident due to the driver sleeping. Let us tell you that apart from the driver in the train, there is also an assistant driver. If a driver falls asleep or has any other problem, the assistant driver wakes him up. In case of some serious trouble, it is reported at the next station and the train is stopped. After this, a new driver is given in the train from the station.

if both sleep?

Many people will also be coming to the mind of what will happen if both the drivers of the train sleep. So let us tell you that the chances of this happening are very low. But still the Railways has installed a 'Vigilance Control Device' in the engine of the train for this. This device installed in the engine of the train takes care that if the driver has not reacted for a minute, then an audio visual indication comes within 17 seconds. The driver has to accept it by pressing the button. If the driver does not respond to this indication, then automatic brakes start after 17 seconds.

The train stops by itself

The driver has to play the speed less and the horn while driving the train. That is, the driver is completely active during duty. If he does not do any response for a minute, then the railway sends this audio visual indication. When there is no response from the driver, the train stops at a distance of 1 km and other railway employees inside the train take cognizance of the matter. In this way, the railway prevents major accidents from happening.
