The Mumbai division of Western Railway (WR) on Thursday said that it will operate a major block at Jogeshwari on the intervening night of February 3 and 4.
In an official statement issued on Thursday, the WR said that on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday, i.e., on 3rd and 4th February, a major block will be taken for the conversion of Route Relay Interlocking (RRI) panel to Electronic Interlocking (EI) panel at Jogeshwari station in western suburbs of the city.
A Route Relay Interlocking system is one of the important signalling systems for major yards in Indian Railways. The basic knowledge of the RRI system can help the signal personnel in maintenance and troubleshooting.
Whereas the Electronic Interlocking system is a microprocessor based interlocking equipment to read the yard and panel inputs and process them in a fail-safe manner as per selection table and generate required output. The system is considered as a successful alternative to the conventional Relay Interlocking system, the experts suggest.
