This Association conducted its Zonal meeting at Hotel Arun,Trichy on 11-07-2011.The meeting condoled the demise of passengers in Kalka Mail accident at Malwan station on 10-07-2011. In the media reports it appears that the cause of the accident is application of emergency brake by the Driver(Loco Pilot). This Union represents the Loco Pilots and Assistant Loco Pilots  of Indian Railways wishes to clarify as follows.

          The RDSO, the research wing of Railways after elaborate study issued a circular that emergency brake will not cause any derailment and Drivers should not hesitate to apply emergency brakes when required. The new gadgets like ACD (Anti-Collision Device), TPWS (train Protection Warning System) resort application of emergency brakes when it senses emergency situations to ensure safety. Being so, the provision of emergency brake which is for emergency purpose is not detrimental to safety.
                   Hence this Association concludes the EMERGENCY BRAKE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT CAUSE ACCIDENTS and Railway should go into the bottom of the truth to find out the real cause of the Accident.

Thanking you,

Place : Trichy.                                                                           (Geomy George),

If actually emergency brake creates accidents,it should be abolished from engines urgently.

I am working as Assistant Loco Pilot at Trivandrum Division.
When I was working at Erode Depot in 2004 I applied emergency brake to escape from engine for relief after a longer full night continuos working of 12 hours(the Loco Pilot itself not ready to stop train even my repeated request).For that now i am undergoing three year lower pay scale recurring.and for another emergency application for safety (where I had no LR)I am going to be removed from service soon...let remove this DANGEROUS foolish Emergency Brake..
