Anti-Collision System for Railways is used to avoid train accidents. The system proposed in this paper involves the use of encrypted Zigbee protocol where Zigbee modules are placed along with the train engine to avoid Head-On or Rear-End collisions of trains. One of the major benefit of the concept presented in this research paper is that even if the trains are running over different tracks, trains of only individual same track will receive signals to avoid collision and the nearby track trains will keep continue to run. If two trains are coming on the same track, they will get stopped with a safe distance between them. The Train module, Zigbee module, Control Module and Braking Module are incorporated together to form Anti Collision System proposed here.
