Abstract: It is a well known fact that large number of people of all age groups travel by train. Irrespective of the type of train or class, one facet of the train that needs improvement is the cleanliness of toilets. An unclean toilet causes bad smell, which makes people uncomfortable. Further it affects people by spreading various diseases. One main reason for the lack of cleanliness is that people forget to flush the toilet often. To maintain toilets clean, separate routines are adopted but only periodically at major stations. Hence most of the time, toilet remains unclean. This project aims to design and fabricate the semi automated flushing system in toilets in railway toilets. The system will be fabricated in such a way that the water is flushed only when the passenger open and close the door. For this operation, a piston mounted on the door will follow the reciprocating motion; consequently the flush system will be actuated. Possible benefits are that minimum quantity of the water will be used efficiently, which reduces wastage of water. In order to make the cleaning more effective, the pressure of the flushing system is to be increased.
