Asia   Those who live in Mumbai are often trapped due to flooding

A waterproof engine could be soon operated 12 inches deep to avoid interruptions due to flooding caused by monsoon rains, the Central Railway of India reported.

Currently, the Indian railways can operate when the water level is only four inches (0.1 meters), because there are engine failures, in a situation that forces to abandon the trip and wait for the liquid to recede to be able to clear the lines.

Those who live in Mumbai and take frequent trains of Indian railways are often trapped due to flooding in some stretches during the monsoon season, and now, to overcome these inconveniences, national transport presented the new solution, noted Zeebiz news channel.

So far, according to a business report, only one engine has been modified and another one is expected to be transformed.

And I hope that this initiative will prosper, because it would provide much needed help to passengers from places like Mumbai, where the option of suburban transport is preferred by people.
