in sleeper class coaches of its trains. The quota which is automatically alloted to them through the passenger reservation system, will be raised from a combined quota of two lower berths per coach to four, said a statement issued by Railways. There will, however, be no change in this quota being earmarked in 3A and 2A classes, it added. Railways has also decided that the existing reservation quota of six berths for female passengers being earmarked in long distance Mail/Express trains should made available in the middle of the coach. To the extent feasible, the facility will be made available to the senior citizen and their quota would be earmarked in the middle of the coach, the statement said. Currently, there is a provision in the computerised passenger reservation system to allot lower berth automatically to male passengers above 60 years and female passengers above 45 years subject to availability of the same at the time of booking of ticket. As per the statement, instructions have also been issued to ticket checking staff to assist senior citizens and physically handicapped persons, who have been allotted middle/upper berths, by allotting them vacant lower berths available in the train on first come first serve basis.

When Indian Railways kicked off their 150th year celebrations by running a special heritage train led by steam engines in Mumbai , Steam loco ran nearly after 20 yrs in Mumbai!
The special train was planned as a re-run of the first train on the Indian soil between Bombay and Thane and had a similar composition of coaches and locomotives as that of the first train.

railway platform ticket will be hiked from `5 to `10 from April 1, said a circular from the Railways issued on Monday night.
What is more, divisional railway managers (DRMs) have also been empowered to further increase the cost of platform tickets during fairs and rallies to regulate rush at platforms.
South Western Railway GM P K Saxena told Express that the move was planned a few years ago but the Railway Ministry sat on the final decision for a long time. “It has suddenly taken a decision today,” he said.
When asked about this finding no mention in the rail budget presented last month, he said, “The ministry has the right to issue such policy instructions whenever it wants.”
The budget had promised a huge allocation for passenger amenities and the amount mobilised will naturally go towards improving facilities at stations, he added.
Bengaluru Division DRM Sanjiv Agarwal said this is the first time DRMs have been entrusted with the power to hike platform ticket rates within their jurisdiction.

There is one loop whole in this hike. If at the same time, there is any passenger/local/emu/demu train departure around an hour or two, take the ticket of immediate next station which will be of 5 rs, for that train, that can work.

Flight for tourist destination COMMENT   ·   PRINT   ·   T  T  
IndiGo has announced a daily flight from Visakhapatnam to Thiruvananthapuram via Chennai in its summer schedule with effect from March 29.
The
...
Read more...
flight will be useful for tourists and also people from Kerala travelling to their home state during the summer vacation. It will also be very convenient to the Ayyappa devotees visiting Sabarimala during the next season. Devotees can reach Sabarimala by road from Trivandrum. The outward flight will leave Vizag by 10.25 a.m. and the inward flight from Trivandrum will arrive here at 5.30 p.m. IndiGo will also operate a flight from Ahmedabad to Vizag via Hyderabad.
A couple of months ago a man was coming from Kharagpur to Vizag by the Howrah-Chennai Central Super Fast Special AC Express as there was no accommodation in other trains. The train, which by-passes the Visakhapatnam main station reaches Duvvada at 3.03 a.m.
It was pitch dark and one cannot see around properly as it was an AC compartment.
He woke up around 2.30 a.m. and found that the train had stopped at some place. The railway station was not visible but he figured out that the train was somewhere near Vizag. The coach attendant was taking a nap and when asked, he said: “The train has already crossed Vizianagaram some time ago and I think this must be Duvvada.” Believing his words, the passenger got down hastily to avoid the prospect of the train leaving. Luckily, he did not have much luggage and he walked along the track in the dark and managed to reach the main road. There someone told him that the Kothalavala Station was about half-a-kilometre away. The train had no stoppage at Kothavalasa and the attendant, who was napping, must have thought that it has reached Duvvada. Incidents like this can be avoided, when passengers utilise the passenger-friendly initiatives like ‘Wake up’ introduced by the railways recently. All that they have to do is to SMS 139 giving their PNR no. “Alert PNR No.” The passengers would receive an alert call on their mobile phone well in advance of the station, where they have to alight.

Most popular and the only superfast on Mumbai-Chennai Route,12163/64 is a pride for CR. Speed of the train is good,would get late by 40 mins till GTL(Rarely),but slack ensures on time arrival at Pune & Mumbai. The coaches are new(all coaches are of 21st Century) and very well maintained by CR. Even toilets are maintained well. Bedding's given in in 3AC & 2AC is fresh & clean. Pantry of this train is good. Especially the lunch is excellent. 2 Rotis,Panner Subzi,Dal,Rice,Pickle,Dahi,Sweet(Most of the times Gulab Jamun) is served. Food of this train is trustable.
Recommended to travel from Mumbai to Chennai unlike its counterparts.

I just don't know when the PUNE - GTL route will be completely Electrified??? As this is the only line in the CSTM - MAS route which needs to be electrified. Once this is electrified then the electrification of the CSTM - MAS route will be completed.
