For 4+ years, this site has been maybe one of the very few sites on the internet that has been running completely ad-free. Also, IRI Express is the Only mobile Rail app which is completely ad-free.

If there is something left over, we may look at properly organizing the much-demanded Admin and Member melas, and other rail-oriented social events. If the experiment fails, the entire thing will be rolled back, and we'll continue as we are. Thanks.

The new IRI logo can now be seen. Actually, we are reluctant to make changes to the logo (for the sake of recognizability and consistency), but some very slight modification was done this time. Here is the post-facto rationalization of the logo:
1. The Chakra is the Wheel symbolizing Transportation/Travel which...

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. Only on clicking on the individual tracks, it would assume a finer form. Now, the tracks are refined even on the overview...
