**********For Your Kind Attention Plz.*********
Dear Railfans.
Do you know what is a Diamond Crossing?
I know whenever the word "Diamond Crossing" comes, a picture pop-ups in our mind that is "The Nagpur Diamond Crossing". Many You-Tube Videos says that this is only and only Diamond Crossing in India. Is it true that Nagpur Crossing Is really a Diamond Crossing and this is
only one in India?. Let's First try to classify crossings:-
We can broadly classify crossings in three types:
(i know it can be classified in more than three ways. But again i am saying that I am classifying broadly)
1. Square Crossing (in which two tracks cross each other at 90 deg. angles.)
2. Acute crossing (in which two rails(not track) cross each other in such a way that angles made in between them is less than 90 deg.)
3. Obtuse Crossing( in which two tracks cross each other at an angle greater than 90 deg.This crossing is also known as Diamond Crossing).
I have attached two pics. First one is of Square Crossing and second one is Obtuse Crossing or "Diamond Crossing". Now it is clear that what is a Diamond Crossing and what is a Square Crossing.
Now coming to point that whether Nagpur Crossing is Diamond Crossing or Not(Many of you may be thinking that it is Square Crossing). But answer is Yes. It is a Diamond Crossing. So why Nagpur Crossing is Diamond not Square. We have seen in images that it looks like both lines are crossing at each other at 90 deg.But in reality they crosses each other at angle greater than 90 deg.(In images it looks like they are making 90 deg angle. This is due to the angle of Photography).Therefor Nagpur Crossing is Diamond Crossing.
Nagpur Crossing is not lonely Diamond Crossing in India. There is plenty of these type of crossings in India.(Square Crossing is rare). Go and Locate in your Home-Station. Also Post pics here. Comments are Welcomed.

Q. How to recover a train with electric traction struck in neutral section?
Ans. If an train driven by electric traction gets struck in overlapping neutral section then following three possibilities arise :
i) Overlapping neutral section is charged Using jumping isolators to flow electric current through it. To do this jumping isolator which are in open state in normal condition are closed. For this LP needs to contact section controller through walkie - talkie/ telephone and needs to stop the trains coming in the other line by communicating with their LPs
or using flash light signal.
Upon getting such a request section controller sends the key of the isolator through the first available train and then using this key isolators are closed, thus energizing the neutral section. After that electric locomotive is passed through that section. loco pilot mandatorily needs to give in writing the section controller the reason why loco got struck in the neutral section.
After passing of loco through that section , again the electric supply is put off using key of the isolator, locked back and key returned back to the station master of next station, who in turn sends it back to section controller.
ii) When there is no provision to send key of isloators to the loco struck in the concerned neutral section, assisting loco is sent by nearest locomotive trip shed in charge to pull out the electric locomotive struck in neutral section. Diesel locomotive is preferred in all such rescue operations. If the struck train has passenger bogies behind /in it then rescuing locomotive is sent from behind the train to give banking traction push to the struck train.
iii) Short neutral section : chances of a train strucking in such neutral section is very less and even if it happens , an eloco can easily recover from it by getting its working panto down and rising up the alterior pantograph of the loco. By doing so only, panto comes under OHE with electric supply as length of such neutral section is few meters. It should be taken care by LP that the other panto is risen only when the other is in flag down position.
