The Mainline Electric Multiple Unit or MEMU is a commuter rail system in India operated by the Indian Railway for semi-urban and rural areas.

History[edit]

The first MEMU service in Bilaspur division of S E Railway started on 17-10-1995 in 1995-96 between Raipur-Durg-Bhatapara-Raipur-Bilaspur. First train was inaugurated by V.C.Shukla, the senior leader of Indian national congress.

Technology[edit]

The system uses Mainline Electrical Multiple Units[1][2] (MEMU) operating on Alternating Current (AC) drawn from over-head cables through the catenary system..

Design[edit]

MEMU trains are designed for semi-urban and rural areas, unlike EMU (electric multiple unit) trains that are designed for urban and semi-urban areas. MEMU trains also have end vestibules (gangway connections) not found on EMU trains. Also, unlike EMU, MEMU trains have lavatories.
