Catalog Info

Railway wagons are unpowered railway vehicles that are used for the carriage of goods. A variety of wagon types are in use to handle different types of goods, but all goods wagons in a regional network typically have standardized couplers and other fittings, such as hoses for air brakes, allowing different wagon types to be assembled into trains. Wagon, covered – Wagon of a watertight nature by virtue of the construction of the vehicle (completely covered on roof and sides), also characterized by the security of transport (possibility of locking and/or sealing the wagon). Wagon, open – Wagon not fitted with a roof. It may be either high sided, low sided or without side. Datasets have information about the number of wagons in units for broad gauge, metre gauge and total ( in units & in terms of 4- wheelers upto 2007-08 and in 8- wheelers from onwards).
