    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points: . 1. Previously, the tracks were crude with many straight line segments.

THE DOUBLE DECKER FLOP SHOW
Prided myself on being the first IRI member to report on a journey by the DD Express STD HWH at 8.30 am today. Reached HWH at 7.45 am and met our admin AnandNambyar, presently caming at SAMPATH RAIL YATRI NIVAS, at the New Complex. Proceeded with him to PF11 at the Old Complex. Bought the customary RAIL NEER and The Telegraph newspaper. Anand and I had a cup of tea each for the princely sum of Rs. 3 each in the earthern pot (also called, bhand, khullar or matka depending on which part of the country you come from). We were both standing on the platform indulging in our favourite passion of railfanning.
The rake composition of the train was WAP7 WHITIE Howrah shed numbered 30305-LBG-C1

to C7-LBG.
Occupancy levels in each coach was C1/128/128/0, C2/128/115/13, C3/128/88/40, C4/128/0/128#,C5/128/128/0,C6/128/114/14,C7128/128/0.
For each coach, the first numerical refers to the capacity, the second to the number of VACANT SEATS and the third to the numbered of RESERVED SEATS as displayed on the chart.
# For C4, the actual number of passengers whose names figured on the charts was only 47, the remaining 81 representing OUTSTATION QUOTA of which we were unable to ascertain the number of confirmed bookings.
Therefore, out of a capacity of 7x128=896, the number of names displayed on the chart was only 114, with the capacity utilisation ex-HWH being app 13%.
Which name would you prefer SNOW WHITE ELEPHANT or MILK WHITE ELEPHANT ?
While the coaches manufactured by ICF, Kapurthala, were slick and beautiful the toilets appeared spick and span.Understandably, because they were HARDLY USED like some people's BRAINS. Lot of PC guys were moving around with tea/coffee and breakfast was kept stored n the pantries. The layout of the fully AC coaches was as under:-
LOWER DECK* (GROUND FLOOR or BASEMENT) Seats 7 to 60
MIDDLE DECK* (MEZZANINE FLOOR) Seats 1 to 6 on Pantry Side and 61 to 74 on non-Pantry Side
UPPER DECK*(1ST FLOOR) 75 to 128.
The side panel adjacent to each window seat was provided with a charging point.
* indicates official railway terminology while what you observe in brackets is my own nomenclature (to be contd...)

They can even start it in between SBC-MAS, all 2 shatabdi are packed for all days. I am from Kolkata but wastage of public money is not at all advisable. If they dont want to give it to other zone then they can start the service in-between HWH NJP, it will be hit one.

Now unknowingly you cracked the reason why this train failed.
The train has a jinx which stops its passenger from boarding.
You have option to remove this jinx but what other and future passengers need to do is a tough question.
Tejas Ji please suggest a general remedy so every one can use this train to make a hit.

Members of IRI can follow what i have suggested to have a sucessful journey.For general public offering 101 cocnuts in front of the WAP 4/7 of this train at HWH should help :)
On a serious note, there has been a lot of discussions about the timings of this train.Extension of this to BOKARO and perhaps a fare reduction might go a long way in revitalizing this ailing train.

Now MINOR ADMIN is just above INFANT ADMIN so sub junior admins are Teen Admins.
