The Absolute Block System of working was studied initially by traveling upto Surat for getting a first hand knowledge. The study for Automatic Block system was done next.
The R.R.I. (Route Relay Interlocking) principle and various signaling concepts were studied. The project develops a simulation model for the RRI panel of Mira road. It takes all the precautions which are actually taken up by the Railways to provide a Fail Safe system of working.
The project is built on the basics of R.R.I. and Automatic Block System. This project can be used as a trainer kit for anyone who is interested in understanding this complex yet very interesting system of management.
During the course of this project hand-on experience about the working of different systems for managing trains in Indian Railways was gained. It makes one realize the complexities involved in running the “Life line “of Mumbai.
