Yellow fever hits WR

Western Railway (WR) has agreed to change the black facade of the motor coaches of the new rakes to vibrant yellow.

The decision follows repeated complaints by gangmen and trackmen that the black Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) rakes, are not clearly visible from a distance and this could lead to accidents.

“We can’t see the train coming in till it is dangerously close. Locations where the tracks curve suddenly are even more dangerous, as you don’t realise the train is so near, till it gets really close,” said a gangman.
