The history of Indian Railways, called the lifeline of the country, is as powerful as its future. All of us must have traveled by rail at some time. Apart from this, there will be many people in our country who have not yet traveled by rail. But today we are going to tell you a very special thing about Indian Railways, about which it is very important for all of you to know. Of course you have traveled by rail or not. You must have seen that a very large mark of ‘X’ is made behind the last bogie of the train. But have you ever wondered why this ‘X’ mark is made behind all passenger trains running in India. If you do not know, then we are going to tell you this important information.
Reason of ‘x’ & LV sign in the last car of the train
The marks at the end of the train are mainly white and yellow. According to the rules of Indian Railways, this trail is mandatory for all passenger trains to end. Along with this you may have seen LV written on many trains. Apart from this, there is a red blinking light behind the train. Now first of all, we tell you the secret behind ‘X’, with which there is also a board on which LV is written. The full form of LV is ‘last vehicle’ which means last box. Along with the ‘X’ sign, LV informs the railway staff that it is the last train.
If in any case there is no sign of either of these on the last compartment it clearly shows that this is an emergency. In such a case, the last few coaches of the train are separated from the rest of the train. Seeing this, the railwaymen get involved in their work.
In addition, the bright red blink light on the back of the train instructs the employees working on the track that the train has left the place where they are working. Many times it is quite difficult to see the train clearly in the bad weather and dense fog. In such a situation, this light helps the employees tremendously. Along with this, this light also indicates for the train coming from behind that there is another train ahead of it. Now you must have recognized many railway signs, which you may not have known before. If you have liked this information, then share it with your friends and acquaintances too, so that they too can get this important information.
