Next what happened till I have no information.
Loco pilots are having more responsibility in dealing all safety aspect, very care fully.It is necessary to have a good knowledge in all aspect of working system prevails in Indian Railways. Without knowledge ,he has to be slave in his working life.He can not defend himself in any critical situation,incident or accident.Locopilots can safe himself by educating himself,experience , good talent of driving and smooth controlling of train.
Now I am going to refer here one incident,which I had faced yesterday.yesterday i.e on 11.11.2010.,I was the locopilot of train number 2163 exp(Dadar to Chennai exp) super ex Guntakal to Renigunta.My train was running on right time.While approached Moodanur station, observed the following signal aspect---
1)Distent signal---ATTENTION ASPECT.
2)HOME SIGNAL------CAUTION ASPECT.
3)Station Master and point Man , both were displaying all right green hand signal.
4)Main line STARTER was displaing danger aspect. and
5)Last stop signal was on proceed aspect. Now all this aspect are not a correct signal,for pass through train at moodanur station. I immediately stopped my train,since it may lead to a accident.it may be serious or little,because accident never comes with invitation.Matter advised to my guard that main line starter is at on and LSS is taken OFF through Walkie-talkie set. SM on duty ,who was out side of station room and exhibiting all right signal,apprised about matter by guard and immediately operated main line starter to OFF aspect.
The above habit of SM is very dangerous for locopilots and safe train operation in Indian Railways.I informed this matter to CCC/GTL shri Manan sharif, My SLI/shri Tajjudin,and ON DUTY POWER CONTROLLER through Railways CUG cell phone immediatelly.
But I got serious doubt that no one will take it seriously and matter will be cleaned inside.So I prepared a SMS and sent to Divisional Mechanical Engineer/power and Divisional Railway Manager/GUNTAKAL.SMS details is as---------LP of 2163 to DRM.GTL at modanur home caution for main line sm and pm exibited proceed hand signal but observed that main line starter at danger and LSS proceed.train stopped 4 one mts. 4 signal.This habit is dangerous 4 LP and safety.
AT EVENING DRM.GTL has seen the massage and collected all details by my loco Inspector. It is heared that SM was booked to see sr. DOM.
On arrival at Renigunta I made remarked in UN USUAL REGISTER for necessary action. Next day i.e on 12.11.2010,CSTE/SC inspected the lobby and note down all remarks.
