Desk: More than 2 crore people travel by Indian Railways every day. In such a situation, people are curious to know everything related to it. Many things have to be used to run a train. But you will have many interesting questions in your mind that you would like to know about. Today we will tell you the answer to the question of how the train catches the speed of 100 in a moment and how many gears are given in the engine of the train.
The name of the train gear is something else
The train has a gear to help move the coach full of passengers but its name is not gear but something else. Diesel locomotive trains are given 8 gears but these are called notches and not gears.
Just as the speed increases when the car or bike changes gears, the speed touches 100 kilometers per hour on the 8th notch. At the same time, when the speed has to be reduced, the notch is reduced, According to reports, the notch is fixed if the train has to run at the same speed.
There is no need to change the notch
When the train runs at a certain speed limit, the engine driver fixes the notch, so that the notch does not have to be changed repeatedly and the train continues to run at the same speed. At the same time, the electric engine works exactly like the automatic car, just as the gears in the automatic car change automatically, in the same way the electric engine does not need to shift the notch, the notch shifts automatically.
