Apart from these, the railways has also deployed detonators on tracks to caution the driver, and put the railway staffs on patrol for safe operations in foggy conditions, a senior official said.
    
"Signals at all the railway stations on Jaipur-Rewari and Rewari-Bhatinda sections under NWR have been equipped with global positioning system (GPS). Train drivers would get all information about the signals, level crossing and stations in advance on a display of the anti-fog device," CPRO-NWR Tarun Kumar Jain said.
    
He said, all the information, would be displayed on the device and also provided through audio to the loco-pilot in the train.
    
Jain said glow signs with blinking LED lights were also put in place so that a train driver can seem them from a safe distance and get the idea about the signals.
    
Besides, the railway staff including trackmen were provided with detonators to be used on tracks to alert the driver of a moving train when required.
    
The detonator is placed on the rail tracks, generally in foggy conditions ahead of signal or level crossing, and it explodes when a train runs over it, alerting the driver who stops the train.
