Such accidents are, therefore, viewed seriously collisions may be of the following types.

  •  Head -on collision, i.e. one train ramming into the other from the rear.
  •  Side -collision due to a train moving on a partially blocked line fouled by a train or vehicle on the adjacent line.
  •  Collision between a train and a trolley pushed into the same section in violation of the Block Working rules.
  •  Averted Collision: An averted collision is a circumstances under which, but for the vigilance shown by any person or persons, a collision would have occurred either in the block section or within the station limits between two trains or between a train and an obstruction.
  •  These collision falls under Al to AS class and Fl to F4 class.
6/ Derailment:

When ever a train are vehicle /wagon involved in an accident and whose wheels are gone off the track is known as derailment.

Q.19. Write short notes on

a) Point indicators

They are necessary – in multiple aspect upper quadrant territory when signal armed home signal is provided and in multiple aspect colour light signaling territory when route indicator is not provided on Home signal or when there are no departure signals or when there is common departure signal.
Point indicator shall show a white target by day or a white light by night in both directions when the points are set for the straight and no target by day and a green light by night in both directions when the points are set for the turn out.

b)Crank Handle

Crank handles are provided at stations where motor operated points are provided. When motor operated points fall crank handles are required to operate the points. They are chained to keys in HKTs which are housed in boxes, padlocked and scaled. A releases button is provided on HKT by pressing by which the key can be taken out. Once this is done, the concerned pressing by which the key can be taken out. Once this is done, the concerned route will get disconnected and signals will refuse to assume off aspect. Crank handles should be used, strictly in accordance SR 3.38 whenever points are operated by crank handle they should be clamped and padlocked. A crank handle Register should be maintained giving particulars of its use. After the failure is rectified the crank handle must be restored in the Box and HKT key inserted in the HKT and turn fully to the right ‘Key in” indication appears on the panel. The box should be then be locked and sealed.

c).HKT

It is a time saving electrical arrangement for transmitting keys over long distances. A cast iron case with an indicating needle and a key hole is kept at both the places concerned. One of the key remains locked in one of those instruments at one time. If ‘A’ wants to transmit the key to ‘B’ he will insert it in the key hold of the transmitter and turn it in the clock wise direction. This causes both the needles deflect and a bell to ring at “b”, “b” will then turn the key at his end in the anti clock wise direction and take it out.
This stops the bell and bring the indicators to normal. “A’ leaves the key in the transmitter which gets locked up ‘B’ will return the key to ‘A’ after the work by repeating the procedure. HKT is useful in interlocking a number of outside siding points, gates, slip siding etc with reception or dispatch signals. It is also used to connect LSS with the block instrument.

3. A person has three daughters, Bindu, Indu and Swathi. He gave Rs. 3,42,506 to Bindu, Rs. 2,68,372 to Indu and Rs. 1,75,429 to Swathi. Fin the total money he has given to his three daughters.

Bindu - Rs. 3,42,506.00
Indu - Rs. 2,68,372.00
Swathi - Rs. 1,75,429.00
Total Amount - Rs. 7,86,307.00

4. A cycle merchant brought 25 cycles and paid Rs. 20,000 and promised to pay remaining amount of Rs. 1,250 later. If so find the cost of one cycle?

Amount paid for 25 Cycles =Rs 20,000
Amount to be paid = Rs 1,250
Total Amount for 25 = Amount paid + amount to be paid
Cycles = Rs 21,250
Therefore cost of one cycle = Total amount/No of Cycles
= 21250/25
= Rs 850
Cost of one cycle =Rs 850.


5. If 52 TV sets cost Rs. 6,40,380 find the cost of each TV set.

Cost of 52 TV sets = Rs 6,40,380
No of TV sets = 52 sets
Cost of each TV set = Total cost of 52 TV sets/No of TVs
= 640380/52
= Rs 12315


6. The cost of 25 buffaloes is Rs. 65,925 find the cost of one buffalo.

Cost of 25 buffaloes = Rs 65,925
No of buffaloes = 25
Cost of each buffalo = Total cost of 25 buffaloes /No of buffaloes
= 65,925/25
= Rs 2637


7. If a passenger purchased tickets worth Rs. 7250/- If one ticket cost Rs. 125. Find the number of ticket purchased.

Cost total Tkts = Rs 7250/-
Cost of one TKT = Rs 125/-
Number of Tickets Purchased = Cost total Tkts /cost of one TKT
= 7250/125
= Rs 58
