Mar 26 2017 (10:47)   Suresh Prabhu: Green plan to save Rs 41K crore railway power expenditure

AURANGABAD: Indian Railways is planning to save a staggering Rs 41,000 crore expenditure towards power consumption over the next decade by gradually switching to non-conventional energy. Railway minister Suresh Prabhu on Saturday announced the plan while addressing the e-inauguration of DigiPay initiative at the railway station here. He also announced various development projects at other stations in the South Central Railway from Hyderabad. "Plans have been charted out to install power generation capacity of 1MW by tapping solar and wind power over a period of the next five years. Efforts are on to tap non-conventional energy at various railway stations and headquarters," he said, adding that the Indian Railways would be installing roof-top and land-based solar power units at various facilities. Prabhu said both traction power network, an electricity grid for the supply of electrified rail networks and non-traction power network would be synced with the non-conventional energy.Recently, the South Central...
Railways installed a 100-KWp on-grid solar plant atop the roof of Rail Nilayam, the Secundarabad-based headquarters, in addition to a 3 KW solar/wind hybrid plant at Poodoor station. Among other green initiatives, the minister also announced restoration of water bodies in the form of dug-wells on railway properties. "Restoration of water bodies on railway premises is necessary to tide over possible water scarcity. Considering only around 4% fresh water is naturally available, these water bodies can be very handy. Emphasis is also on recycling of water," he said. "We have already planted nearly 1.5 crore saplings on the premises of various railway establishments and the target would be achieved in near future in phases by planting 1.2 crore saplings a year," he said.

Mar 22 2017 (18:23)   Here’s why Indian railways will use drones

The Hirakand Express derailed in Andhra Pradesh earlier this year, killing 40, while the Rajendranagar-Patna Express incident caused the death of almost 150 people last year. While Mohammad Jamshed, member of the Traffic Railway Board last January said that the instances of accidents caused by railways have reduced by up to 20 per cent in India, why is it that large scale accidents still take place in India. To counter this question, it appears like Railway will be deploying drones or unmanned aerial vehicles to capture visuals of accident sites in order to collect evidence.
According to a report published by The Hindu, the Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabu suggested this as a part of series of initiatives for the safety of
train operations. Since the evidence is collected much later after the accident takes place, this causes everyone involved to indulge in the blame game. This will allow the authorities to “pinpoint” the cause of failure or accident.
Like mentioned previously, railway accidents are increasing in number. “The Railways reported 237 accidents in the last two years which claimed the lives of 158 people and left 450 injured. A majority of the accidents were derailments and mishaps at level crossings. Of the 106 train accidents in 2015-16, 92% were due to human error, of which 54% was due to failure of railway staff,” the report read.

The Ministry of Railways has announced the scaling up of a new reservation system called 'Vikalp', or alternate train accommodation scheme (ATAS), from April 1, 2017. Under the Vikalp scheme, wait-listed passengers can avail the opportunity of travelling in Rajdhani, Shatabdi or other premium/special trains even if they have booked tickets in other mail/express trains for the same destinations - at no extra cost. The Vikalp scheme aims to utilise vacant berths in many premier trains in all major routes.

Yes, trains in southern TN are empty to some extent due to very vast network of buses throughout day and night. Madurai has arguably the best and most buses in entire country as per my observation. Hence the moniker - city that never sleeps :)

Mar 19 2017 (19:12)   Bengaluru–Hassan line likely to open on March 26

The Bengaluru–Hassan new railway line, construction of which was completed in January, would be opened for passenger traffic likely on March 26.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda are expected to inaugurate the new line by flagging off Yeshwantpur–Hassan Inter-City Express from Yeshwantpur station.
South Western Railway’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya said the inauguration date has been tentatively fixed.
166-km new line was sanctioned by Mr. Gowda when he was the Prime Minister in 1996–97. The project took over two decades for completion.
Commissioner of Railway Safety (Southern Circle) A.K. Manoharan, who inspected the new line between Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola (110 km) between February 6 and 10 issued authorisation to SWR on February 20 to run passenger trains on the sector.

5 intermediate stations are there. They should try crossing. Mishap like DSP sir says is possible but should try it out. Throw caution to the wind for the larger benefits to people. Don't Northern zones take risks with so many trains plying one behind another on super-saturated routes?
I always wished atleast they would join another train of say some 20 coaches with the Karwar train and push 44 coaches up the ghat. That smaller 20 coaches can be to Bidar or Vijayapura, which can be split at Sakleshpura. Goods
trains of longer rake are pushed up, so why not combined passenger trains?

Everything Drama is of RSA... Even if Passenger is diverted to MAJN, I think it has to go back at MAQ for Maintainence (Mostly MAQ based Rack). People from smaller stations will blame as MAJN, there are less facilities. like transport etc.

Re# 2203499-53            Tags   Past Edits
Forget passenger trains, even freights are not being routed much through the Shiradi route! SWR had rationalized the HAS-MAQ route for freight operations from the iron ore mines around Bellary ( Ranajitpura and Yeshwantnagar) to Panambur port and KIOCL to attract more traffic as the shortest route from BAY to MAQ is via ASK. However, citing ghat constraints, they are running the freights via the Braganza and Konkan route. Effectively they are charging the mining companies for the short route, but running the trains via the longer route for almost 200km more losing a lot of revenue. It's surprising that they are not developing the route even for increasing their freight revenues, let alone improving passenger transport!

Reasons given by PGT division are absolute rubbish. If they cant find a slot for Kudla then they dont deserve to keep hold of MAQ and can hand it over to SWR. Demand between MAQ and SBC is very high that Karwar-SBC runs packed from MAQ- one can witness the huge rush for UR seats at MAQ Platform. Some might say that demand for another train is not there but if thats the case why there are 100s of buses between MAQ and SBC? If more trains are introduced, then a lot of bus pax are going to migrate to train travel.
