railways had been my subject of interest ever since i stepped out all alone from my hometown , sahibganj jn, to delhi,for persuing my 10+2 studies. Travelling all alone for 22 hours for the first time,needs a lot of courage. it was then i came to know,that railways can be your best friends ever,if you consider them so. days passed by and my love for train travel kept on increasing,so much so,that i refused flights just for the sake of train journeys...began changing
trains,even when a direct train was available...i began buying all the railway timetables possible...started noting down names of stations enroute...my friends started calling me rail enquiry and my family began getting disturbed due to my obsession with railways...
in the meanwhile i came upon irfca in the year 2003,and joined their mailing list...they sent mails and it was amusing to know persons with similar interests.about 2 years ago,they switched over to other format,and your mails needed moderation before being published...a major drawback as a minimum of 2-3 hours was required for moderation...

    Today, we have implemented a new experimental feature called "RailFan Clubs". Some notes: 1. The purpose of this feature is to encourage RailFan meets at local stations, and to enjoy a shared interest in our hobbies/passions.

    A new feature has been rolled out - "Blog-based ChatRooms". . Previously, we had one-on-one private Chat feature, which was not very successful.

    There have been several reports that IRI cannot be accessed from a few large mobile data providers like Vodafone, whereas the site works fine when accessed through others.
