Private Sidings in India are operated manually and the operations’ staff do not have first-hand information on track occupancy. Poor yard utilization, inefficient operation and derailments are natural consequences.
Present technologies used by Indian Railways would support one stationary person to view and operate.
Such systems are not suitable for private sidings as multiple persons, who are in the move, manage operations.
