Aaj PURUSHOTTAM EXPRESS (popularly known as Puru Baba) ki Happy Birthday hai. Let's Wish the legendary Express of Indian Railway. The First train was flagged by the than RM, Shri K.C. Lenka. Here are some facts of Puru:
The Puri-New Delhi Purushottam Express was the first train of IR to have a Braille-embedded coach. This Firozabad Black night rail disaster between Purushottam Express & Kalindi Express is considered as second most deadliest rail accident in Indian rail history with 358 people died on spot. It's the only train on grand chord which keeps jam packed round the year. It has original LHB rakes (imported).

Odisha CM has demanded to run a express train with the name of Great Freedom Fighter Buxi Jagabandhu who started paika revolution during British era. Hope, MoR may consider his demand. It will be better if IR will run between BBS to JAT/ASR.

Bihar has good railway connectivity than other eastern states due to max. no. of rail ministers for last 20-25 years. But, in terms of economy , growth & developments, Bihar may be behind other 3 states as there is no heavy industries & mines as well other source of revenue.

गोरखपुर। राज्यसभा में रेल बजट की चर्चा में भाग लेकर निकले राज्यसभा सांसद शिवप्रताप शुक्ल ने कहा है कि पहली बार 1924 के बाद रेल बजट अलग से नहीं बल्कि साथ पेश किया गया। गरीबों की हितैषी भाजपा सरकार ने यात्री किराए में बढ़ोत्तरी नहीं होने दी। उन्होंने सदन में गोरखपुर से पुरी तक नई ट्रेन चलाने की मांग रखी।शिवप्रताप शुक्ल ने कहा कि वित्त विभाग पूरी तरह रेलवे को ध्यान में रखते हुए उसके घाटे को दूर करने के लिए प्रयत्नशील रहेगा। आम लोगों ने अपनी आम सरकार बनाई। इस सरकार में रेलवे यात्री भाड़ा में कोई बढ़ोत्तरी नहीं हुई। हावड़ा से लेकर मुंबई तक अंत्योदय एक्सप्रेस एसी ट्रेन चलाई गई। गरीब भी एसी ट्रेन से यात्र कर रहे हैं। इस तरह की ट्रेनें पूरे देश में चलाई जाएं। गोरखपुर से भी ऐसी ट्रेन चलाई जानी चाहिए।

Feb 03 2017 (07:11)   Union Budget: Rs 5,102 cr allocated for railway project in Odisha

BHUBANESWAR: The Union Budget 2017 presented in Parliament on Wednesday came as a fair deal for Odisha with a total of Rs 5,102 crore allocated for different railway projects in the state. It is the highest-ever budgetary allocation to the state till date. This year, the state government had demanded before the central government to allocate Rs 5, 870 crore for development of railway infrastructure in the state.
In 2015-16, the state had received Rs 3,712 crore against its demand for Rs 3,200 crore. Last year, the state had received Rs 4,682 crore against government's demand for Rs 5,000 crore.
the specific details like project-specific allotments have not received by the East Coast Railway (ECoR), the zonal railway said the central government has allocated more funds than last year. "We will give all the details regarding fund allotment for infrastructure projects in the state on Friday. This allocation will help the ongoing projects to be completed in time," said ECoR general manager Umesh Singh.
Six railway projects are regarded as important projects for Odisha. These are four new lines - Khurda Road - Bolangir, Paradip-Haridaspur, Angul-Sukinda and Talcher-Bimalagarh, and doubling of two railway lines - Sambalpur-Titlagarh and Sambalpur-Talcher.
This year the state government has demanded the Centre to allocate Rs 500 crore for Khurda-Bolangir new line, Rs 300 crore for Talcher-Bimalagarh, Rs 200 crore each for Paradip-Haridaspur and Angul-Sukinda new lines respectively.
Khurda Road-Bolangir (289 km) new line was sanctioned in 1996-97, but the railway has completed only 54 km from Khurda Road side. It has not completed the first patch of 19 km from Bolangir. It has set a target to complete the project by March 2021. The state government has formed a joint venture with the Ministry of Railways to carry out the project.
Similarly, Angul-Sukinda new line (104 km) was sanctioned in 1997-98, but it is yet to be completed. Only 60 per cent of earth work of the project is completed. Though the state government has formed a special purpose vehicle (SPV) with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL), Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) and Jindal Steel Power Limited to carry out the project with a cost of Rs 1600 crore, it will still take one more years to complete the project by June 2018.
Another old and significant project is Paradip-Haridaspur new line (82km) which was sanctioned in 1996-97. Only 75 per cent of the work has been completed till date. Railways sources said the project will be completed by March 2018. Keeping the project delay in mind, the government has formed a SPV with the Railways.
Talcher-Bimalagarh (154 km) was sanctioned in 2004-05 in order to reduce the distance between Bhubaneswar-Rourkela to 308 km (now it is 440 km) enabling one to travel between Bhubaneswar and Rourkela within 5-6 hours. But this project is just started. It will be completed by March 2021, said the railway sources.
Doubling work of Sambalpur-Titlagarh (182 km) rail line sanctioned in 2006-07 is in full swing. It will be completed by the end of this year. But doubling work of another important project Sambalpur-Talcher (174 km) sanctioned in 2010-11 is just started. The railway has set a target to complete it in March 2010.
Regarding progress of works, the ECoR sources said it has completed 133.62 km new lines and doubling in 2015-16. It has set a target to complete 230.12 km in the current fiscal. Last year, the ECoR had completed electrification of 160.64 km of railway lines, while this year it aims to finish 129.95 km of railway lines.
State hopes to get fund for the development of newlines announced last year to connect tribal dominated districts- Malkangiri and Nabarangpur- with Jeypore. If Jeypore-Malkangiri and Jeypore-Nabarangpur rail lines get completed, tribal people from these districts will get railway facility.
