Traffic Density is the volume of traffic moving between any two points on the Railway system. It is expressed in terms of Passenger Kilometres or Net Tonne Kilometre and Train Kilometres per Running Track Kilometre or Route Kilometre.
The Traffic Unit represents total of Passenger Kilometres and Freight Net Tonne KiloMetres. Data in the statement shows Traffic Units Per Employee and percentage variation over previous year/period.
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).
Locomotives are the rail vehicles either with prime-mover and motor or with motor only (electric locomotive) used for hauling other vehicles. A distinction is made between steam locomotives, electric locomotives, diesel locomotives, etc., according to the type of motive power used. (i) Steam locomotive is one propelled by power supplied from a steam engine. (ii) Diesel-electric locomotive is one propelled by electricity supplied from diesel electric type internal combustion prime mover and irrespective of the number of units used.
Coaching vehicles are the railway vehicles used for the carriage of persons.Indian Railways run a number of different types of coaches, with different patterns of seating or berths, depending on the class of travel. Electric Multiple Unit (EMU)are the multiple unit trains consisting of self-propelled carriages, using electricity as the motive power. Rail cars- are self propelled vehicles the prime movers of which are internal combustion engines Inforrmation of coaching vehicles - Broad gauges, Metre gauges, Narrow gauges and all gauges is available in datasets.
Catalog contains railway station related data. Station means any place on a line of railway at which traffic is dealt with or at which an authority to proceed is given under the system of working.
Statistics of Railway Personnel are available under this catalog. Staff are all employees who are paid directly by the railway administration (except casual labour). Data includes Total number of Staff for Group C, Group D, Department wise, RPSF, Railway Board and other Railway offices.
Catalog contains data related to the railway network i.e Route Length, Track Kilometres , Route Kilometres etc.. Route Kilometers is the distance of each gauge owned by a railway including its worked lines treated as a single line. Kilometrage of double, treble, etc. Tracks, crossing at stations and sidings are to be excluded. Double and Multiple Route Kilometres represents route kilometres on the system having double or multiple lines.
Suburban traffic is the passenger traffic moving in metropolitan areas (at present in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai) where special concession rates for season tickets are applicable. Passenger traffic of Kolkata Metro is also treated as Suburban traffic. Non-Suburban traffic represents passenger traffic other than suburban traffic.
