Jul 14 2016 (5:53PM)   Got Rs 50 crore to spare? Railways exploring options to let you name trains - The New Indian Express

This is a new feature showing past edits to this News Post.
NEW DELHI: Looking to improve its financial health from unconventional sources, the Indian Railways is exploring options to allow corporates or individuals to name passenger trains after paying a fat fees. The Railway Board is evaluating the money that it will attract before opening it up for interested players to bid.
This is not the first time that the Railways is exploring earning revenue by selling train names. It was considered in 2015, but was dropped as the money that the Railways could have earned by giving rights of naming train to someone for a specific time was miniscule. 
“The
...

matter is being considered and the Railway Board will look into the statistics of revenues it can generate before any decision is taken.We would allow train branding by naming it only after we are convinced that we will earn respectable revenue. Why would we allow it if we know that money is limited to less than `50 crore per train,” said sources in the Railway Ministry.
To be legally correct, the Railway Board has fetched out nearly 30-years-old documents related to naming of trains to see if an order issued in 1987 allows them to open the area. The 1987 order says that trains be named only based on stations they connect. The order was issued in the wake of demands from people that trains be named after deities and leaders. But, the board had said that these are sensitive matters and it is better to avoid naming trains after deities and leaders. In fact, there are trains named after rivers, monuments and mountains.    
The Railways has already allowed ad-wrapped trains whereby advertisers will be allowed to buy outer space of trains. These bogies will be vinyl wrapped and to start with a dozen of Rajdhanis would soon be flashed  these advertisements. The Railway has huge potential to use its space for advertising as it runs 13,000 trains per day on 63,000 kms of track and carries 23 million passengers – equivalent to the population of Australia.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in his Budget speech has focused on exploring non-fare revenues for improving the condition of Railways. A non-fare revenue directorate has been created in the Railway Board with a mandate for enhancing revenues by 10-20 per cent from non-tariff sources. The directorate would look into areas like advertising at stations, commercial exploitation of vacant land and space rights over station buildings, advertising on coaches and monetisation of soft assets.

We all have heard of extension of trains. Let's try and name some trains which have been short terminated and subsequently lost 100 km or more of their run.
For example
Malda town delhi bhiwani farakka express now runs upto delhi...119km short of bhiwani.

Hello Admin team,
Kindly remove the loco reversal Symbol from Mammad station. Practically if loco reversal happens then the train will go back to the destination from where it started.
Train # 12221 / 12222 ( Pune Howrah Duranto ). let me know if you have any queries.

Brijesh sir, there is a changeover at Ankai for trains to cross from CR line to SCR line and vice versa. The Duronto takes the SCR line and enters from the Aurangabad line to have a reversal at Manmad.

Yesvantpur Railway Station: Parallel Action. Two trains leave the station at the same time. (click here
Trains: 16569 - Yesvantpur Kacheguda Express hauled by WDP4D and 12777 Hubballi-Kochuveli Superfast Express hauled by WAP4.
Both trains got the signal to depart Yesvantpur Junction railway station within seconds of each other. The two trains are observed leaving in almost perfect synchronization. This parallel action will continue upto Lottegollahalli station, at which point the WDP4D will head along the Bengaluru-Dharmavaram route to proceed to Kacheguda, and the WAP4 will head towards Krishnarajapuram and take the Salem-Erode-Palakkad

This is my first video that I've taken as a railfan, and I would like to hear what you guys think about it. Constructive criticism and suggestions would really be appreciated!
Cheers.

Recently I met a friend who talked about Tirunelveli city speciality food. He described about one sweet that is made exclusively in TEN. and that is Wheat Halwa. It is great preparation, claimed by friend, and is nourishing too as it is made from pure ghee, and wheat extracts specially prepared for this sweet.
Could any friend from TEN talk about this more, as I wish to buy online, if possible.
Secondly if one wishes to visit the city what are the places to look for as tourist interest.
Third
...
more...
is please specify lodging facilities around station area. Though RR at TEN are listed for online booking, private lodging is preferable as excepting Big Cities like SBC and CSTM etc. some stations' RRs are giving nightmarish experience, apart from (un)security issues.
Thanks

The Tirunelveli Iruttukadai Halva is located opposite the Nellaiappar temple. You can order the Halva online through the website www.halwakadai.com. The iruttukadai halva shop is closed once a week and is open only in the evenings .
Around Tirunelveli, you can visit the Nava Tirupathi temples which are 9 divya desams dedicated to Lord Mahavishnu. The Navagrahas offered prayers here and the 9 temples are for one planet. You can visit the Tiruchendur Murugan temple by the beach and also get your fortune told by the ladies who wander with a stick in their hand.
Courtallam
...
more...
falls is another major attraction. The temples I mentioned earlier can be covered in a day if you leave Tirunelveli by 5. Visit the Vishnu temples as they close by 12 and then go to to the beach Murugan temple. Expect heavy crowds there.
Try the hotel Nellai Saravana Bhava for accommodation
Happy journey
