A post on the Ministry of Railways’ official Twitter account explains the significance of the “X’ symbol behind the last train coach.
All of us have traveled in trains at some point in time. People who are keen observers notice a lot of things while traveling – the condition of the train, the services offered, the different kinds of passengers, and other things. Many passengers might have also noticed and wondered what the “X” symbol behind the last coach of the train actually meant. The Railways Ministry took to Twitter to explain the meaning of the same and many users were relieved to finally find an answer.
According to a post by the Ministry of Railways’ official Twitter account, the yellow “X” sign signifies that the train has passed without leaving any coaches behind. The presence of the symbol also helps the railway officials to get a confirmation that the train has passed in its entirety, without any coaches being detached.
The caption of the post read, “Did you Know? The letter ‘X’ on the last coach of the train denotes that the train has passed without any coaches being left behind.”
The key takeaway of President Ebrahim Raeisi’s state visit to Beijing goes way beyond the signing of 20 bilateral cooperation agreements.
