As the world sleeps, India shall awake to freedom..
These were the famous words spoke by Pandit Nehru in Red Fort on 15th August 1947. A day when two nations were born and a trains shuttled from one nation to another carrying people, memories, pain and joy. As India celebrated yet another Independence Day, I too was to make a train journey on this great day. Only, my journey would be from one state to another. Another state that was divided into two not so long ago.
On 15th August, I made
...
more...
my maiden trip on the Rajdhani Express. 22693 B1 17 was the berth allotted to me by the deity whom we worship for a lower berth, a trackside window at that. The PRS god was kind to ensure a lower berth while the god who watches us from above ensured it was a trackside one too. Yet, I was to savour the joy for a mere 11 hours after which some lucky soul would be entitled to it.
Anyway, the journey from my home KGI to SBC by 16535 Gol Gumbaz Express took a longish 45 minutes as the loco of the Mayiladuthurai Express that had gone ahead of us had failed near SBC home. My parents, brother and I reached SBC Pf 10 by 7:35pm. The Rajdhani rake was shunted in at the same time. I had time to put my luggage, say goodbye and settle in my seat comfortably. .
At 8pm, the Primo Supremo left with an almighty jerk which was courtesy the lovely LHB rake. We crossed YPR through Platform 2 and the SUR SF was on the adjoining platform, warming up to run to Sholapur.
Water bottle was given promptly and soup with pepper and bread sticks was served. It was pretty good and second helping was offered too. The dinner course was Chapati, Mixed vegetables curry, steamed rice, dal, soan papdi sweet. Curd was not served as it was not loaded.
Then it was time to hit the beds and have some sleep lest I fall asleep at work. The next thing I knew, at 6:30, we were blasting past LPI. The Supremo was close to an hour ahead of schedule. And that was good and bad. Good as a railfan,bad as a member of the community that religiously attends work from Monday to Saturday. It meant I would reach the hotel early and report at 9 instead of 10.
Again, I put faith in the controller and invoked him with just the amount of faith I used to put in God before the results would be announced. He did not betray me and beautifully trolled the Supremo till SC where we were admitted at 7:20 on Platform 10 which is reserved for the king alone.
And then, it was hotel ho, to go to work and earn my money which shall enable me to do many more trips on trains like Rajdhani, Shatabdi and maybe Gatimaan one day.

Additional Mysuru-Bengaluru train likely from October
A long-pending demand for an additional train between Mysuru and Bengaluru, to decongest the existing services plying between the two cities, will reportedly be fulfilled in October.
This has been promised by the Minister of State for Railways Manoj Kumar Sinha to Pratap Simha, Mysuru MP, who raised the issue with him on Thursday and underlined the imperatives of the new service in view of increase in originating passenger traffic.
The
...
more...
MP had sought details from the officials in the Mysuru Division of the South Western Railway related to the pending demand before raising the issue with the Minister.
The new service is to be announced in October and will be a “shadow service” to the existing Chamundi Express, which leaves Mysuru at 6.45 a.m. and Bengaluru at 6.15 p.m.
As it is patronised by daily commuters, the occupancy rate is in excess of 200 per cent. More than 3,000 passengers travel on the train in both the directions.
Mr. Pratap Simha said it is likely that the new service will depart a few minutes before or immediately after Chamundi Express in both the directions and help wean away the crowd significantly.
The concept of “shadow” trains or “duplicate” trains was originally mooted by Railways more than three years ago on high-density routes where merely attaching additional coaches will not reduce the passenger rush or congestion.
The “shadow” trains are akin to the original train, have the same configuration of coaches, stoppages and running time so that its popularity is not compromised.
The Chamundi Express timings synchronise with the timings of factories and offices and hence is heavily patronised by government employees, contract workers and those working in the organised and unorganised private sector.
The rush is particularly heavy on the Channapatana-Bengaluru stretch and though an EMU type service was introduced to cater to that crowd, it has failed to solve the problem. At present 32 pairs of trains (including bi-weekly and weekly services) operate between the two cities and with the completion of the track doubling work, their numbers are expected to be increased gradually.
The new service will be a ‘shadow service’ to Chamundi Express that leaves Mysuru at 6.45 a.m. and Bengaluru at 6.15 p.m.

16209/16210 train shows skipping YPR/Malleswaram/Ythen halting at Bengaluru Cantt., then going to SBC.
Which is not the case. It will take Yelhanka-BNC route then enters SBC. Which means it doesn't even touch YPR.
Please correct.

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

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.
