Even in this they may say the same thing, or suspend LPs. That's the max they would do.

Nice trip diary
The month of December. A month about which most of the railfans of India know. Fog, delayed, resch and cancelled trains. Well the date of the trip was decided well in advance even before I left Bokaro for NDLS and to come back. But this time, i wanted to try something else. Equally confused, should I take my fav Rajdhani or go for something else.. like 12826 or 12818 or 12802. Could not decide it. The trains were running on time, till mid November. I risked it, and booked a tkt in Purushottam Express, though I was well aware, that fog may ruin the 130 madness. But still I risked it. Then suddenly one night, everything changed. It happened almost 15 16 days before my trip. The Rajdhanis were delayed by 5 to 6 hrs between MGS and CNB and the delay was increasing. I took it as a common incident,...
more...
maybe some issue. The next day I came to know, it was the notorious FOG. Anyways in the hope that situation would improve, I didn't cancel the tkts, keeping in mind, Purushottam has a long TAT. But the situation was getting worse and worse day by day and my hopes for 130 and timely arrival at BKSC were demolishing with each day passing. After a week attack, the weather cleared. My hopes were back on track. But the continuous resch from both sides kept me in dilemma. Anyways, I was thinking, 130 MPS can do something, and then the fog attacked again. More severly. My hopes lost.I was badly confused, to take 12440 or 12802. Finally, I decided to go with 12440. But seems, God was is=n no mood to spare me. The prices were much higher. I cancelled the thought of Booking. I kept on keeping my hopes high. While my PNR was moving at snail's pace. When it reached WL 8, I posted it on the DOJ, as I had made up my mind to go by 12802 now. /pnr/post/2077666.
.
I was still thinking in the morning, should I book in 12440 :p. Finally, i said.. Jo hoga dekh lenge. These decisions we often take in our lives. :p. The train arrived NDLS at abt 6 PM. I was damn sure, it wud depart ontime or a maximum of 30 mins delayed. Suddenly after few mins my frnd called " bhaiyya, train to raat 1 baje jaayegi ". And for few moments, my mind went blank. In Hindi, we have a proverb --- " jab okhli mai sar de diya to ab kya darna". Anyways I collected myself back. My everything was packed. I left my PG at app 23:00 hrs. Booked a cab, and reached at 23:25. Thanks to nil traffic. Shivganga was being placed and Prayagraj was in pitline. TN was yet to be placed alongwith GT. AP was being placed. Poorva, as usual, running extremely delayed and ETA was 2 AM. I arrived at PF 9. BSP Rajdhani was in the sickline with ET WAP 4. A shatabdi came at PF 9. While Mahabodhi was placed few minutes before that. All were speculating, once shatabdi goes to yard, the train would be placed on PF
.
Mahabodhi was full. Heavily crowded even in such winters. Finally the shatabdi was taken to pitline. an announcement was done - "Passengers your attention please, Saharsa - Amritsar Garibrath is arriving on PF 9.".. " Yatrigan kripya dhyan dijiye, Saharsa se chalkar AMritsar ko jaane wali, Amritsar garib Rath, Platform number nau pe lagayi jaa rahi hai aur gaadi sankhya 12802 nayi dilli se chalkar puri ko jaane wali, purushottam express, abhi takniki dekhrekh ke liye yard mai khadi hai. Jaise hi gaadi platform pe lagayi jayegi, aapko soochit kiya jayega." I was like.. WTH... I had become Jethalal. Finally, the train was placed at app 01:50 AM. It departed at 02:04 AM. I exchanged my UB with SLB.

Aravind, AFAIK, there is no CC in this train. What's there is that btwn SBC & MYS you are permitted to trave/book in 3AC by paying ONLY CC fare in this as well as 4 other trains Viz. Tuticorin-Mys Exp, Hampi, Golgumbaz and Kaveri as per an SWR notification issued about 6 months ago. Perhaps this is what you are referring to.

TTE :) toothless tiger endangered Congo PK/MSN combo, keep hunting... Congrats to ALL Proud to be an RF. Hearty Kongratulations to all! Congratulations all sir. Congrats to our admins Congrats to all IRI admins
IRI admins are now similar to an endangered species of say toothless tigers. However, they are still continuing their association with IRI for sentimental reasons, at least quite a few of them.
Friends, it gives me immense pleasure to share with you that 2 of our admins did themselves and IRI proud with the laurels they won at the recently concluded 12th IRFCA convention at Bhilai.
First and foremost, our admin M.S.Narayanan, membership no. 663767, won the AWARD FOR THE BEST TRIP REPORT beating off intense and severe competition from a number

of battle-scarred IRFCA veterans.
And if that was not enough, IRI admin, Pramodh Kommattil, membership no. 53131, was the TOPPER of the preliminary round of the IRFCA quiz contest, among more than 100 delegates at the convention. He was also a member of the team which emerged 2nd runners-up in a closely contested final round of the quiz competition.
AFAIK, half a dozen admins from IRI, participated in the Bhilai convention from 27th to 28th January. Apart from the above two prize-winning stalwarts from SBC, admins Sabyasachi Ghosh and Sourabh Bardhan from Kolkata also participated. Another admin who is no longer active in IRI viz. Abhishek Chanda was also there.
Kudos to the participants and also the prize winners.

Firstly, hearty congratulations to Pramodh & Narayanan on their awards. It makes us immensely proud as RailFans, to be associated with them.

As for the Admin group, the observation is correct. The group is being maintained primarily for sentimental/nostalgic reasons ONLY.

Re# 2:
In the age of the internet, people are actually continuously assessing whether they are getting value from some site. People are able join, login, logout, quit, rejoin, requit, literally, in an instant. There can never be any forced allegiance whatsoever. A person should be honest and truthful to his/her own hobbies, passions and interests, and nothing else. This is to clarify, once and for all, that IRI is not some "political" organization, and there is no "pledge of allegiance" or "declaration of membership in IRI" that members/Monitors/Admins have to undertake. (needless to say, "confession" of membership in IRI is allowed at the members' own discretion!!!)
.
Conversely, sites like IRI also cannot stagnate - they need to continuously change and evolve with the times. In fact, many sites completely pivot and change their entire mission focus, in their struggle for survival. The changes may not be popular, leading to members quitting the site because of disenchantment. This cannot be helped. In course of time, consequent to the changes, some sites will see an upward trend (google, netflix, facebook), and others will slowly become "endangered species" (aol, yahoo) and then totally EXTINCT (myspace,..., iri?). This is part of the normal cycle of evolution. IRI may well be taking the latter course, but we MUST, nevertheless, continue to change and embrace the consequences. In any case, we shall still be RailFans, and cherish our friendships and camaraderie.
.
Once again, congrats to all current and erstwhile members of IRI who made this community of RailFans proud.

The senior admins have categorically denied any supposed breakaway faction on IRI and have rubbished the claims as far fetched rumors. Some stopped just short of filling defemation case on IRI Reporter.
A section of the admin battery was quick to offer unconditional support to their admin friends and questioned the motives of IRI Reporter.
But accross all the denials issued to this news post, the narrative sounded less cheerful and confident about their association with IRI.
