### WTR - Wagon Turn Around with Practical example

ü  Definition:  The interval of time between two successive loadings of a wagon is called Wagon Turn Round.

ü  Wagon Turn Round performance is denoted in terms of "Days".

ü  If the No. of Wagon Turn Round days is reduced, the performance considered to be more  or vice versa.

ü  In simple terms, "calculated from the time a wagon is placed for loading till the time it again becomes available for reloading", is the actual wagon turn-round.

ü  Means wagon turn round is 11 days means, the wagon could be loaded around 32 times a year. (360 days/11 days).

ü  If wagon turn round is reduced from 6 days to 5 days, the same wagon could be loaded around 72 times a year. (360 days/5days).

 Year 1950-51 2013-14 Wagon Turn Round 11 days 5.13  days

ü  This (Reduction of Wagon Turn Round days) has been achieved as a result of
a)    improved mobility of wagons.
c)    reduction in detentions.
d)    and improvement in speed of goods trains.

ü  Formulae for WTR - Wagon Turn Round  = WB/(L+R)

ü  WB is Wagon Balance (effective average),  L is Daily average number of wagons Loaded, R is Daily average number of wagons Received.

Practical example of WTR:

Calculate Wagon Turn Round from the following data:

1.    Daily Average Wagon balance: 15500
2.    Average daily non effective wagons  A) Sick - 200 B) Departmental -300
4.    Average daily received - 700
1.    Effective average wagon balance daily = Wagon balance minus Sick & Dept
= 15500 - (200+300)
= 15000
2.    WTR = WB/(L+R)

WTR= 15000/(800+700)

WTR= 10

ü  Wagon is the bread earning horse of the Railways, load it adequately. Make it run and don’t stable it.
