Mumbai: Indian Railways is the fourth largest railway network in the world. Many signs and signals are used to operate such a large railway network. So that this train service provides great convenience to our passengers without any hindrance.
Without these signs, it would not be possible to run a railway in any country, let alone in India.
Most of the symbols used in Indian Railways are for railway employees. Apart from this, some signs and symbols are also provided for the passengers traveling on Indian Railways. Of these, today we are going to inform you about the important sign on the coaches of Indian Railways. This information is extremely important for every passenger.
White and yellow stripes
You may have seen white or yellow stripes on the coaches of many trains arriving at the station. These straps are made on the toilet window at the end of a box. These strips are very simple, but they have a significance of their own and they are very important for train passengers. Thousands of passengers often gather on the railway platform. Some of these people are traveling in AC bogies, while others are traveling in sleeper bogies. In addition, many passengers travel in second-class bogies.
What the white and yellow stripes indicate
The number of general bogies in any train is much less than the number of sleeper coaches. Therefore, these strips have been made so that the passengers can easily find the general bogies of the railways. Passengers traveling in general bogies see a white and yellow stripe at the end of the coach and realize that they want to sit in it.
Passengers who travel daily by train know where the general coach arrives. But sometimes the order of the coaches changes, making it difficult for passengers to identify the coaches. In such cases, these straps help the passengers to identify the coach.
