Loco-pilots, the frontline of the railway staff who play a crucial role in train operations, will now be trained in highly advance simulators, giving them a real life environment experience before they enter the actual locomotive engine cabin.
The North Central Railway (NCR) zone is going to upgrade its current Kanpur training facility centre for electric locomotive loco-pilots.
Amit Malviya, public relation officer, NCR zone, said, “At a cost of around Rs 10 crore, the NCR is going to upgrade its current simulators for loco-pilots training. The motive behind the upgradation is to
enhance the learning experience of loco-pilots and improve their driving skills with regard to aspects like train dynamics and handling, dealing with unusual and hazardous events, route learning, economical fuel-efficient driving and safe operations. The NCR is upgrading its sole loco-pilot simulator training centre in Kanpur.”
“Currently, the Kanpur centre imparts training to loco-pilots of other zones as well,” he added.
According to officials, the simulators will have an advance 3D technology, so as to provide training in a real-life environment and exposing trainees to unusual occurrences. In NCR, there are 6,772 loco-pilots, out of which 4,795 are electric loco-pilots who run 392 electric locomotives. The railways also trains diesel locomotive pilots at its Jhansi-based training facility.
