Average speed of goods train

Catalog Info

Data of Average speed of goods train has been provided here. This unit is worked out by dividing the figure of goods train kilometers by the goods train engine hours. The time occupied in halts at enroute stations and shunting during the run is included. The train kilometre indicates the amount of productive work done and the train engine hours are the unit cost for train working. A combination of these two units, i.e. train kilometres per train engine hours is a good index of efficiency in train working. Any increase in the speeds of trains indicates improvement in train operation. Further, an improvement in the speed of trains also results in an improvement in the wagon utilization, engine utilization, turn round of wagons and engines and saving in fuel consumption. Data contains Speed of Goods Trains on Broad Gauge, Metre Gauge. It also includes Speed of All Goods Trains including Through, Van and Shunting Trains on Broad Gauge, Metre Gauge.
