REJUVENATE MYSURU-CHENNAI KAVERI EXPRESS!
Sir,
I fully endorse the nightmarish views of Dr. H.K. Lakshman Rao expressed in this column (SOM dated Apr.13) on the Mysuru-Chennai Kaveri Express. The monstrous jerks and noise this train makes at its every halt and take off is so harrowing that the passengers, especially senior citizens, are on tenterhooks of sleeplessness. And the very purpose of making berth reservations in any classes in this train is defeated due to the failure of SWR in providing proper comforts and amenities to the passengers.
It

is suggested that SWR can at the most withdraw this train on account of condemned coaches instead of chugging all the passengers in jeopardy. I hope SWR will pull up its socks to rejuvenate this train by replacing the old coaches in order to abort any untoward incidents in the days to come.

Hope SWR educates SR about people's discomfort and press SR to replace this CBC Rake with conventional Rake. But the problem is, TN is getting LHB rake and SR will have more CBC rakes.

Bullet train will need 100 trips daily to be financially viable: study Ahmedabad, Apr 18, 2016 (PTI)
The proposed bullet train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad will have to ferry 88,000-118,000 passengers per day, or undertake 100 trips daily, for the Railways to keep it financially viable, according to a report by Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM-A).
The report, titled, "Dedicated High Speed Railway (HSR) Networks in India: Issues in Development," states that if the Railways set the ticket price at Rs 1500for 300-km drive per person fifteen years after the operation, it

will have to ferry between 88,000 and 110,000 passengers every day to ensure that it repays the loans with interest on time.
Japan has offered a concessional loan of Rs 97,636 crore to fund about 80 per cent  of the project cost with a repayment period of 50 years beginning from the 16th year of operation at an interest rate of 0.1 per cent.
For the remaining 20 per cent loan, the authors assume 8 per cent average rate of interest (on Rs 20,000 crore to be funded by Centre). Japan has offered a 15-year moratorium on loan, so revenue concerns for the Indian Railways will arise from the 16th year, the authors state in the paper.
The total distance covered by the train will be 534 kilometres. The paper has been jointly authored by faculty members G Raghuram, professor of the institute's Public Systems Group, and Prashanth Udayakumar.
Fifteen years after the bullet train becomes operational, while the actual operating cost is not known, the paper assumes two scenarios by pegging operating cost at 20 per cent and 40 per cent of revenue.
"So if the Railways earn Rs 100 revenue, Rs 20 or Rs 40 will go for maintenance, and remaining surplus money will go for cash payment of loan with interest. Now, to cover the loan with operating cost in two scenarios, we consider passengers travelling an average 300 kilometres. In this case, we will need 88,000-118,000 passengers respectively for both the scenarios," Raghuram said.
"Typically one train carries 800 passengers, so to carry 88,000 passengers daily, you will need to take a total 100 trips, or 50 trips each way. So, we need three trains every hour in each direction," he said.
As per the paper, "there are many positive benefits and externalities of the HSR which would be useful in India’s overall aspirational development."
"These externalities include technology percolation into other domains, economic development, game-changing sense of connectivity, and national pride due to cutting-edge infrastructure.
"In such a context, it is a good idea to begin and learn," the paper states as it draws on experiences of running HSR in countries such as Japan, China, Spain, France, Russia, among other countries.
"The Mumbai-Ahmedabad route is a good choice for the first route, since it connects India’s first and seventh most populous cities, with significant economic development in the 500-km corridor between them. Also, the low cost Japanese financing has been a great catalyst."
In terms of future network growth, this segment can be part of extension to Jaipur and Delhi, it states.

Passengers alone are not possible one.So High Speed Express Parcel/Cargo Services also have to be operated in this Bullet track for its viability.

Demand for rail museum at Thane
Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Apr 17, 2016, 03.44 PM IST
THANE: As the Railways ushered in 163 years of its existence in the country on Saturday, experts lament that Thane station that was an integral part of the historic moment on April 16, 1853, today stands robbed of its rich glorious past thanks to the reckless development works undertaken over the years to accommodate the growing commuter base. Start from an arched entrance to a ground storeyed station office premises often seen in archives, almost every

piece of history has been pulled down over the last several years as the station started witnessing gradual infrastructure improvement. "The authorities reportedly failed to realize the importance of saving a slice of history for the future generations as vital relics were either destroyed or buried under the guise of development," lament historians from Thane on the eve of the day when the first service ran till Thane 163 years back. On April 16, 1853 at 3:35 pm, the first passenger train of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway left Boree Bunder station (now Mumbai) for Tannah, (Thane) covering the 33km distance in around 57 minutes. 14 carriages carrying over 400 passengers' thus paving way for a vital link between Mumbai and the entire country. The station assumed importance as it was the only major town after Mumbai and was the one point connect for Mumbai and the entire state. An arched entrance was built towards the Kalwa end of the present platform number where tongas and later on vehicles used to be parked. A small cabin dispensed tickets for travel by the Great Indian Peninsula Railway. A ground-storeyed railway station complex located near the present MSRTC office was also demolished around in the last decade to accommodate development, informs a railway official. A stone-cabin near Kopri which was probably used as a watch tower for approaching trains also lies in ruins today. Historians rue that the railways are focusing only on the CST structure that has been declared a heritage site but sadly nothing of that sort exists in Thane. There is lot of trivia surrounding the railways like how a popular temple in Kopri had to be relocated to Naupada as it came in the way of the railway lines and how few residents initially feared using the mean machines which has to be passed on to the next generations. While a few argue the British didn't construct any notable structure at the station unlike at CST to be preserved, historians say the authorities could have atleast preserved few structures including the age old rails that were unearthed few years back at Kopri. Contractors had recently come across a foundation stone near the station while undertaking some repair work but the same is reportedly dumped in some corner of the railway station. "Thane has always been growing city forcing the railways to constantly keep on developing and upgrading the infrastructure to meet the rising number of commuters. Unfortunately, while the upgradation kept on happening, no one realized the importance of preserving glory of the station as is being done for the railway headquarters at Mumbai CST," said veteran historian Sadashiv Tetwilkar from Thane. Railway officials say while the original structure may not be existing, the Kalwa creek bridge adjoining the station and the Parsik tunnel hold equal importance. "Tracks for operating the first train were laid beyond Thane till Kalwa as the only image of the first train service shows the rake passing over the Kalwa Bridge," says Tetwilkar. Even the ramp bridge connecting platform 2 and 3-4 also was built several years back justifying the stone used for its construction is similar to the ones seen at Sion, Byculla and CST buildings. Shashi Nair, a former member of the railway committee says there are so many little known facts about the railways which could be put up on display at the station. "There are so many visitors curious to see the station considering its historic view but there is nothing preserved by the administration, who seems to be only concerned with the revenue that the station churns out," he alleges. "There should be a small gallery at least that could display the history of the station over the years. Railway officials say there are no plans as such to develop any museum or gallery at the railway station.

This is an excellent initiative. The biggest challenge for people manning the same is to determine how many people extend more than the time slot without paying any additional amount. I have seen this happening at Pune & Chennai stations where time is not tracked properly and passengers end up paying less and stay put for a longer time !!!!

4/10
Food was warm but tasteless. There was no paneer in Matar Paneer :-P
Moreover, rice packets were stored in dustbin near washbasin.
Cleanliness-> 1/10
No maintenance at JAT. Even in AC-2 , toilets were blocked and were stinking badly. Even the floor was very dirty. All coaches were dirty from outside. This factor needs a lot of attention to pay. The bedrolls supplied were not cleaned too.
Nothing was of Rajdhani standard.
Comfort-> 5/10
Lots and lots of Jerks.
Coach attendants were very friendly but were asking for tip.

Twitter, a track that runs parallel on Indian Railways
MANGALURU, APRIL 15:   Hardly anyone would have imagined health emergencies getting addressed in the train a few years ago. Now, tweet your problem and the doctor is there when the next station arrives.
Indian Railways celebrates Railway week in April each year to commemorate the humble beginning of the first train between Bombay and Thane on April 16, 1853.

a history of 163 years, Indian Railways is now using ‘tweet track’ to address issues and concern of its users.
The first train service commenced with 400 guests on 14 railway carriages. As the years passed, it started becoming a complex structure as network of tracks, stations, trains and manpower grew. Now, Indian Railways handles around 27 million passengers a day, or around 8 billion passengers a year.
Outreach programme
After presenting the Railway Budget on February 25, Suresh Prabhu, Railway Minister, had stated that the use of Twitter is a largest outreach programme by any organisation to reach people on real-time basis in a complex structure such as the Railways.
If you go to the Twitter page of Indian Railways, you find a list of 80-plus Twitter handles of general managers of zonal railways and divisional railway managers of various divisions. Barring a few, most of these handles were set up in July and months after that last year.
Twitter handles of Indian Railways (@RailMinIndia) and the minister (@sureshpprabhu) have nearly 9.57 lakh and 8.03 lakh followers, respectively. While many handles of zonal and divisional heads have more than 1,000 followers, a few send tweets regularly.
In an informal chat with BusinessLine during his visit to Mangaluru, a senior official of Konkan Railway said a dedicated person monitors twitter round the clock. The officials also monitor whatever is being tagged or the notifications they get on Twitter. Indian Railways get both bouquets and brickbats by users, in good numbers.
While many take to Twitter to complain about the lack of facilities, or cleanliness or about the demand for bribes, some use it as an SOS tool.
The users also shower praises on the good works done by the staff and the better amenities provided in the coach, along with posting pictures of clean station premises.
On welfare measures
In fact, Suresh Prabhu actively re-tweets praises the Railways gets. He also tweets about various development and welfare activities taken up by his ministry. On its part, Twitter handles from Indian Railways focus on action-taken on the complaints filed by passengers, and the matters such as delays in the train running, among others.
Some divisional railway managers and zonal general managers use the platform to display the news stories on Railways, and to inform the implementation of various development works.
Some divisions have posted info on how to use Twitter for solving problems. It also asks users to post their mobile numbers for assistance.
It is not that all handles pinned on the Railway Ministry’s Twitter page are active. One of the handles of a zonal general manager is yet to send a tweet, and another one liste on the page is disabled.

Gatimaan Express gains popularity fast
SIDHARTHA ROY
Fully booked:There was a waitlist for Gatimaan Express on Saturday.File photo : This weekend and the upcoming extended weekend have come as a big relief for the Indian Railways, with its prestigious Gatimaan Express finally finding takers.
The fastest train in the country has been a bit slow in gaining popularity with travellers.

for the train had started on April 2 but it didn't find many takers initially, with the train running almost empty for the initial few days. But since its inaugural run on April 5 and the media attention thereafter, the train has become hot property.
On Saturday, the 600 odd seats, spread over eight AC Chair Car coaches and two Executive AC Chair Car coaches were overbooked, with passengers being wait listed for Sunday.
The Hindu was the first to report, on April 5, that despite Indian Railways being very upbeat about the premium train, Gatimaan Express hadn’t generated much interest from passengers initially.
“Only a few days from inaugural day, #GatimaanExpress train which left for Agra today has 100% occupancy. An extremely popular brand Thx all (sic)”, tweeted Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu.
The upcoming extended weekend is also proving to be a boon for Gatimaan Express, with more than half the seats for April 14, 15 and 16 already booked. For week days, however, the occupancy rate still remains low with about 100 to 200 seats booked.
“The patronisation received by the Gatimaan Express has shown a healthy sign. It is gaining momentum," a Northern Railway spokesperson said, adding that the waitlisting was a good indicator of its popularity,” .The spokesperson said that a lot of enquiries are being received from tour operators catering to foreign tourists, a segment that Gatimaan Express plans to target.
“Gatimaan Express has been receiving positive response form passengers and tourists because of its wonderfully blended combination of speed and luxury,” he said.
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is offering two different guided heritage tours in Agra to coincide with the time table of Gatimaan Express.
One package is for single day while the other is a an overnight package.
