Abstract-
Nowadays railway system works on rail route. It requires driver for operation, Lots of electricity or fuel. But *my model of railway system works without driver* and it requires a high horsepower Motor.

Description-
It consist of Boggy provided with pinion (Toothed Gear) wheel instead of casted (present) wheel and rail route as rack, which turns as RACK and PINION arrangement. This causes smooth functioning of rails and avoids Slipping of rail from rail route because of Proper meshing.

An electrical motor drives a front gear (say pinion)of boggy and as first gear rotates next connecting gear tends to rotate and link continues up to last gear. The tooth thickness of pinion must be same as tooth space of rack for good meshing.

Pinion wheels are provided at middle of the boggy and slightly larger rack route provided beneath. Starting and stopping of motor is done by principle of electromagnetism. Which operates on switching operation of electromagnet beside or in between route (If used two) and location of rail will be displayed by GPS. The use of Anti Collision Device will eliminates accidents. This all handles or operates remotely any technician can operate it, which eliminates driver to drive train.

But we have to modify some features of conventional train, which are Restriction on load and length because we are using gear if this is not taken in consideration tooth will break and whole system collapses. To avoid this, lots of load calculation have to done, analyze it and modify this system.

If by chance tooth failure occurs, an alternative chain drive will drive whole system up to next station.

AS GEAR ARRANGEMENT, ELECTRONICS AND LAWS OF ELECTROMAGNETISM IT DOESN'T REQUIRE DRIVER TO OPERATE.

Advantages-
1) Unmanned
2) Avoid slipping
3) Fast and easy start and stop
4) Less Maintenance and many more

Disadvantages-
1) Low speed
2) Small Boggy size
3) Requires straight route
4) Lubrication Required
