Abstract: Railways are one of the most commonly used modes of transport by a wide range of the population. Safety is an important factor in any transport system. Regular changes are being made to ensure safe and efficient travel of passengers. Yet, there are more problems need to be considered because of the high usage of railways. Fire accidents in rails are one of the major problems which threaten passenger’s safety. To address these issues we propose a system in which the rail compartments are coupled electromagnetically whereas in the existing system the rail compartments are coupled mechanically. The foremost thing aim of the proposed system is to save the people life and the public assets. In this system, if a fire is sensed in a compartment, it will be isolated from other compartments by de-energizing the electromagnets in the coupling to prevent the spreading of fire. Then the location of the affected compartment is sent to the nearby railway station for rescue work. This system also aids in some emergency cases. Whenever a train is stopped in need of some external help, the location of the train is sent to the nearby railway station to address the emergency within seconds.
