The train TT is yet to be published. So not yet updated in IRI. The train will start its regular run most probably from Wednesday.
Couldn't go inside coaches of this train or the inaugural MEMU as they were locked - SLRs were open. No one was allowed inside. MEMU from tomorrow regular run.
flagging off today... So left after taking pics, didn't wait for the ceremony.

Do you know by any chance whether, the Raichur Junction - Gadwal Junction section has signalling or is it just token system?

लगभग हर राज्य की अपनी क्षेत्रीय भाषा है । किसी को पूर्णतः मान्यता है तो किसी को नहीं।
किसी भी राज्य के अगर किसी रेलवे स्टेशन से कोई ट्रेन प्रारम्भ होती है तो उस ट्रेन के बोर्ड पर हिन्दी तथा अंग्रेजी के अलावा उस राज्य की क्षेत्रीय (regional) भाषा भी होती है।
IRI में भी ऐसा ही है। लेकिन राजस्थान एवं हिमाचल प्रदेश
राज्य की हिन्दी/अंग्रेजी के अलावा क्षेत्रीय भाषा नहीं है इसलिए IRI में अभी तक राजस्थान से चलने वाली ट्रेन में भी Destination वाले राज्य की भाषा लिखी जाती रही है। ऐसे में हम राजस्थान एवं हिमाचल के railfans/members को थोड़ा गलत महसूस होता है।
ऐसे में #Moderator sir से प्रार्थना है कि राजस्थान एवं यहां से सम्बन्ध रखने वाले तमाम लोगो के दिलों की भावनाओं की कद्र करते हुए, राजस्थान एवं हिमाचल से चलने वाली हर ट्रेन का regional name blank(खाली) छोड़ने का या regional name हिन्दी में लिखनें का Rule बनाया जाये। आपकी अति कृपा होगी।
आप सभी राजस्थान एवं हिमाचल से सम्बन्ध रखने वाले( बाहर वाले भी) Members भी कृपया rating button पर जाकर मुझे support करें ताकि moderator sir हमारी भावनाओं को समझ सकें।
हां राजस्थान से चलने वाली ट्रेन में किसी दूसरे राज्य की regional language नहीं होनी चाहिए।100%8
भले ही राजस्थान से चले हमें क्या।0%0

If I am not mistaken, the most traffic for this website comes from non-members (visitors) who search for trains on Google.
I have actively bookmarked this site since 2010 for numerous people across many places that I have worked from Bilaspur to Madurai on their computers.
Many I helped didn't know English or Hindi. Just their regional language like Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Bengali and Malayalam. This website helps them a lot. If left blank due to the demand of some with parochial mindset, then this site is taking a retrograde step

May be? It's in the constitution. How can you doubt it or question it..... 'may be'.
What public facts? More people speak Hindi? So popular opinion says Hindi, then everything will be as per popular, majoritarian view. Trample other languages at will?

Bro have taken it in wrong way. We also have our regional language Rajasthani (Marwari). But it's not on station boards.
We were just discussing for IRI rule. Not for correction in Indian Railway Official.

Then you must ask for your official or local language to be included in IRI too. Surely more the better for visitors using the website.
I have nothing against Hindi. Having lived in Bilaspur and having stayed in Uttarakhand for long intermittent periods, I am fond of the different dialects of Hindi.
you need to understand, that this website though owned by a single person is a collective effort of all members of different languages. By blanking out regional languages you will hurt others sentiments.
If your language is not included, then you can make a case out of it.
But here you do have the language you want.
You additionally simply want to blank out other languages. Rather than creating new, you want to destroy something that exists already. Isn't that wrong?
Imagine all the Hindi members taking up this cause and blanking out regional languages of many trains that originate or pass through Hindi states. What would be the end result? What if regional language members start pushing back asking for the trains belonging to their zones have their language and blank out Hindi?
As stated above wont the visitors to this site be affected?

Please name the angry bulls of IR. Please exclude specials including Subidhas and premiums (Raj, Shatabdi, JS, GR, HS, AC, Yuva).
Personally, I had had journeys in 2 such trains- Durgiana and Saraighat. I think Sampoorn Kranti will fall in this category easily. But please don't name the paper tigers (the trains with pretty impressive TT but stays significantly late throughout the year) like Nandankanan, PSK etc.
What about KSK, TN, Shaan- e- Bhopal, Thirukkural, Poorva, MAQ Vivek etc?

Personally for me its SWR's Wainganga. Have travelled many times between YPR-DHNE. In that section, it is usually held up due to single line traffic for some 20-30 mins at some wayside station or loop line. But still would reach DHNE on time or before that at 5:30.
Same train between BPQ-BSP is superb too. But the best would be between G-BSP. Like a lone warrior in Electric territory, KJM WDM3A would run amok, overtaking those long freights.

My trips were few years ago when it was a single loco - mostly KJM WDM3A.

Quite useful suggestions
#site suggestion sir. When when a new member join IRI he starts asking many question to members like,how to send pvt,how to become monitor,how to create imaginary train,how to tag train station,what is credit,how to earn credits,how to vote in apoll and many more.So i think there is a Help Button should be provided in top corner of screen which have all information of iri.Like what is iri,how to use iri,hot to tag train loco station,what is credit and how to earn it,what are admins monitor and why they are here,how to post videos,site rules etc.It contains all the infos which a new members should need to know.So when he first time create his account and login he should go to help instead of asking members these questions. I see many cases in which a new member is not familiar with iri and asks a members to guide him but no one replying...
to him and at last he give up or delete his account.So i think Help Button should be provided.It will be helpful for new members

Good suggestion. When I joined, I thought that FAQ would have details on how to tag a train and other details about the website. Before joining I was just using the train search, timetable, atlas and reading the news section.

It's like saying to the starving majority, don't ask for food (2 square meals a day) because others (few) have got food. These others who have food now want 'gourmet' food, so cater to them, let the ones with little/no food starve and die.
Smartphones are commodities which individuals buy based on their financial ability.
But IR is not. It's a public entity. Govt. is supposed to develop all parts of the country with available resources. Basic transportation like food, shelter and clothing has to be provided by govt. Only then can one go on to bullet trains. Comfort for the rich is provided by premium trains, but Bullet train is a whole new exercise. A costly one.
If, like Anirudh sir says, the whole loan is from Japan then one can think of it. But what is this 77000 cr MoU? Who is going to compensate for the land acquired? The compensation is part of the loan? Or should IR and state govts. pay the land losers.
