In its yet another step to provide comfortable and improved journey for its passengers on Mumbai suburban network, Western Railway (WR) have decided to install Panorama Digital Display in local train coaches.

According to an official statement released by Vineet Abhishek, Chief Public Relations Officer, in a unique way to enhance train travel experience of Mumbaikars, WR’s EMU Carshed at Mumbai Central has successfully implemented a new head code display system on the side panels of the motor coaches.

This innovative feature will provide passengers with clear and immediate identification of the destination of the Mumbai local, which will ensure a more convenient and informed journey.

“As of now one rake has been fitted with the display system on the sides with a total of eight digital displays with four on each side, providing a panoramic view of crucial travel information. The response from passengers has been positive and it is planned to fit on other rakes too in the near future. With this new addition, WR is proud to continue its legacy of providing comfort and care to its commuters on a daily basis,” he added.

The unique feature of this display is that when the Guard gets into his cab at the originating station and feeds the Train Number, all the journey details are accurately shown on the side-mounted panorama digital displays. The digital displays will show Train Destination in English, Hindi and Marathi, which will toggle with an interval of 3 seconds. Besides this, these displays will also show the Mode i.e. Fast (F) or Slow (S) and whether the train is a 12-Car/15-Car EMU train.

Some of the salient features of these digital displays are:

  • The digital displays are full HD TFT (Thin Film Transistor)
  • Displays are protected with toughened glass
  • Have optimum brightness & viewing angle which will help people view the code o­n the screens easily
  • The contrast of the display screens are also automatically controlled through sensors so that the text is clearly visible from a distance of up to 5 meters
  • Mounted on brackets designed in-house
  • The displays are doubly protected with polycarbonate sheet of 5mm thickness
