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. An "RF Club" is essentially like a "group", wherein only members of that "RF Club" can see and post blogs. This way, when planning RF Meets at your local nearby station, you may post and share specific details, and these posts will NOT be public. ONLY members of that Club can read/write posts.
Each station is associated with one "Station RF Club". All Stations in a Division are associated with ONE "Divisional RF Club. All Stations in a Zone are associated with ONE "Zonal RF Club".
3. When you join a Station RF Club, you also automatically become a member of the corresponding Divisional RF Club and the Zonal RF Club.
4. You may post blogs to your Station RF Club to communicate with, organize meets for that Station's club members. If you wish to reach out to all members of that Division, then you may post to your corresponding Divisional RF Club. When you post to your Zonal RF Club, all members of all stations in that zone can see/reply to your posts.
5. It is not necessary that you need to join the RF Club of a major station. As explained above, even if you join your small local "Station RF Club", you are automatically also a member of the Divisional RF Club & Zonal RF Club.
6. You can only join the Station RF Club of the "Nearest Station" & "Home Station" as in your profile.
7. There is ONLY "RF Club Forum" which consolidates all posts from all Clubs that you are a member of. You can filter to see posts of only a specific Club. When you use the Filter, the Right-hand margin will have a list of members of that specific RF Club.
8. IRI Admins will be able add individual members to their RF Clubs (if requested).
9. Although RF Club posts are not public, they will be moderated and subject to the SAME Forum guidelines as in our public Forums. Offensive language and other abusive conduct will NOT not be permitted. In this respect, the "RF Clubs" are different from other Groups that may be seen on other social media sites.
This is an experimental feature, and will be modified/enhanced depending on uptake. Some features coming soon:
1. Calendar of meets of RF Clubs.
2. Option to "make public" individual Club posts - so that it will appear in the General Forum.
3. Modification of the ChatRoom to integrate better with RF Clubs, so that it is more useful (than it is now).
Please try it out. Feedback is welcome. Thanks.

Just putting down few questions.
1) if Home and Nearest station are parametres for Zonal RF Clubs, what if i'm interested about other members posting pics and vdo's from other stations down south?
2) Do I have options to add myself to other RF clubs down South/West.
3) I can have my admirer of my pics and vdo's from MAO; how then he will
be able to see my post (without myself privately inviting him to see)
4) Also i want my pics to reach out to other Zonal members. How do i post my blog?

Just about to commence the journey on a train that rated not so good. Even 2.7/5 is extremely bad for such a long distance train.
However, lets see what's in store for us.

I presume giving respect to the elderly statesman of IRFCA and a highly respected RailFan in terms of his age and experience would have been appropriate while giving credit to his Videos.

There are 21 pairs of Rajdhani Trains running at present.
After the introduction of Duronto trains in 2010 by the then Rail Minister, Mamata Banerjee, everyone thought that this train would lose its priority.
But honestly saying and asking, that these trains have been able to keep pace with the Duronto and Premium Trains.
Moreover, a #Duronto train is a second option for
a passenger, #Rajdhani train at first.
Very few Duronto trains are able to run with great popularity like Mumbai Duronto, Howrah Duronto, Allahabad Duronto, Chennai Duronto.
Comment on your favourite Rajdhani.......
not just #railfanning but train which offers best comfort with max. priority.

I have travelled myself in HWH RAJ on 20th October and BCT RAJ in 22nd October.
As per my experience, only 2 things separate them.
Food of Howrah Raj(12301) is fabulous and served hot and 2ndly WIFI.
Else both are rhe real KING of IR in terms of class,quality of travel, maintenance,priority, speed and the staff.
Raj is slightly ahead of BCT RAJ with only the above 2 factors mentioned above else nothing else separates them.
N.B:- pls don't drag BPL SHATABDI here in comparison as we are comparing only RAJ's.
