MEMU (Mainline Electric Multiple Unit)
An innovative thought emerges. It was decided to have 10 foot wide coaches in similar composition so that platform constraint is eliminated. This stock is called Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit (MEMU). This was an immediate success providing fast and reliable service connecting big cities with smaller urban centers over a length of around 120-160 Km. MEMU services were in line with EMU, therefore, not furnished with toilet facility. For this reason limitation of distance up to 120 Km was fixed. This was one of the passenger grievances and represented at different forum and finally Indian Railway decided to provide one toilet per unit.
Titagarh has manufactured 5 rakes (40 coaches) of MEMU and currently executing 7 rakes (56 coaches) as of June 2016.
