    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

Today (4:40PM)   भारतीय रेल पर दिखेगा मोदी प्रभाव, अब समय से चलेंगी ट्रेनें! - now shows modi effects on train time table

लखनऊ। अब भारतीय रेल पर भी मोदी प्रभाव दिखेगा। ट्रेनों को समय से चलाने के लिए मंडल स्तर पर पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे, उत्तर रेलवे व उत्तर मध्य रेलवे के बीच समन्वय समितियां बन चुकी हैं। आने वाले दिनों में दो रेलवे बार्डर पर ट्रेनों के आदान-प्रदान में दिक्कत नहीं होगी। ट्रेनें...

समय से चलेंगी और यात्री अनावश्यक देरी से बच सकेंगे। वाराणसी निरीक्षण करने रेलवे बोर्ड चेयरमैन ने यात्री सुविधाओं पर फोकस किया।
बोर्ड चेयरमैन ने यहां शिकायत मिलने पर वरुणा एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन की मानीटरिंग का निर्देश दिया। यात्रियों ने रेलवे बोर्ड से शिकायत की कि दैनिक यात्रियों को लेकर चलने वाली वाराणसी-लखनऊ-कानपुर वरुणा एक्सप्रेस हर रोज घंटों विलंब से पहुंचती है। यह ट्रेन वाराणसी कैंट, लखनऊ और कानपुर के आउटर पर एक-एक घंटे तक खड़ी रहती है। इस वजह से सफर करने वाले यात्री समय से ड्यूटी पर नहीं पहुंच पाते? यात्रियों ने कहा कि लोडिंग अनलोडिंग के चक्कर में भी इसे प्लेटफार्म पर भी काफी देर तक खड़ा रखा जाता है।
यात्रियों की शिकायत सुनकर एक बार रेलवे बोर्ड के चेयरमैन अरुणेंद्र कुमार भी सोच में पड़ गए। कुछ सोचने के बाद बोले, वरुणा एक्सप्रेस की मानीटरिंग कराई जाएगी। आखिर ऐसा क्यों हो रहा है। सामान्य परिस्थितियों में कोई नहीं चाहेगा कि ट्रेन लेट हो। थोड़ी सफाई भी दी, बोले जिस रूट पर वरुणा चलती है वह वाराणसी-सुल्तानपुर-लखनऊ-कानपुर ट्रैक बहुत व्यस्त है। इस रूट पर क्षमता से अधिक ट्रेनें चलाई जा रही हैं। यह भी कारण हो सकता है।

भारतीय रेल एक्सप्रेस और सुपरफास्ट ट्रेनों में पुराने सेकेंड क्लास स्लीपरों की जगह थ्री टियर एसी कोच लगाने पर विचार कर रही हैं. अगले पांच से छह वर्षों में यह काम पूरा होगा. इस दिशा में दक्षिण रेलवे ने एक पहल भी की है. एक अंग्रेजी अखबार ने यह खबर...

दी है. उसके मुताबिक दक्षिण रेलवे ने कई एक्सप्रेस ट्रेनों में साधारण सेकेंड क्लास स्लीपरों को हटाकर एसी थ्री टियर के डिब्बे लगाने शुरू कर दिए हैं. रविवार को एर्नाकुलम से हजरत निजामुद्दीन जाने वाली मंगला एक्सप्रेस (ट्रेन नंबर 12617) में एक स्लीपर बॉगी एस-2 को हटाकर उसकी जगह एसी थ्री का डिब्बा लगा दिया गया.
पहले इस ट्रेन में 11 स्लीपर कोच होते थे लेकिन अब 10 ही रहेंगे. उधर थ्री टियर एसी के कोच की संख्या बढ़कर चार हो गई है. उस स्लीपर के डिब्बे की जगह यात्रियों को बर्थ दे दी गई लेकिन कई यात्रियों को अलग-अलग जगह मिली.
रेलवे के एक अफसर ने अखबार को बताया कि इस तरह की व्यवस्था से यात्रियों को न केवल बेहतर सुविधाएं मिलेंगी बल्कि रेलवे बोर्ड को लाभ भी होगा. इन स्लीपर कोच को इनके मिडल बर्थ हटा कर पैसेंजर ट्रेनों में चलाया जाएगा.

Today (2:53PM)   Zonal railway asked for Rs 10 cr, NDA's rail budget gave it Rs 25 cr

Railways may have cited lack of funds as the reason to deny funds to many projects across India, but one item in the rail budget has been sanctioned more than what was originally demanded - and it is not something the transporter cannot do without immediately. The budget has sanctioned...

Rs 25 crore for the purchase of 10 mini, portable biodiesel plants - without officially trying out even one. Northern Railway, which got the money, had asked to buy only four. The generosity of the ministry has raised the curiosity of officials in the zonal railway as well as a section of the Railway Board because the transporter has yet to ascertain the real efficacy of these machines, and also because it is universal budgetary practice to sanction less money than what is demanded. Notably, the budget has allocated only Rs 1,000 for the purpose. Officials said the remaining Rs 24,999,9000 will come in the form of re-appropriation as the year progresses and purchase is finalised. “Sanction is what matters. Allocation can increase depending on progress,” said a ministry official. The machine railways wants to purchase is largely manufactured by foreign farms, which employ local agents to lobby for them in India. The procurement, as usual, will happen through a tender and the lowest bidder will get the order. In its Machinery and Plant Programme, 2014, Northern Railway had proposed four mini bio-diesel plants, each of 4kl capacity. The justification given was that the portable nature of the plants would enable bio-diesel production even in remote locations where raw material is easily available. The money demanded for this purpose was Rs 10 crore. “The plant pays for itself in about two years apart from bringing about intangible benefits to the environment,” the official pre-budget document reads. The usual custom in railways is to buy such technology on a low scale to try out and see if it suits the desired purpose. New technology in railways is also vetted by Research Designs and Standards Organisation. Railway Board officials said with diesel bills touching the sky and the budget laying down a policy roadmap to use more biodiesel in the future, the procurement was felt necessary. “Indian Railways will start using Bio-Diesel up to 5 per cent of the total fuel consumption in diesel locomotives. This will save precious foreign exchange substantially,” the rail budget speech says.

Jul 16 (4:26PM)   Railway projects may derail on CM Siddaramaiah's cost-cutting idea

BANGALORE: As many as 26 railway projects in Karnataka face the threat of being abandoned by the Railways with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah insisting on reworking the agreement with the utility to bring down the state's share in railway projects cost to a third.
...
Read more...
Under the terms of the agreement, Karnataka must provide land and also meet half of the project cost, excluding the cost of the land. The chief minister, however, is seeking to include the cost of land in the math. "If the state scales down or withdraws its support, it will make all the on-going projects unviable and we will not be able to proceed at all," a senior Railway official told ET.
This crisis in Railway Minister DV Sadananda Gowda's home state comes at a time when he is urging chief ministers to emulate the Karnataka state model in partnering the railways.
"It is the states that will benefit in a big way. Railway development will lead to tourism development, and the state will get more benefit than the Centre. So it is only fair that they share the costs," Gowda had told ET on Sunday. BJP's Jagadish Shettar said the state government should honour its agreement. The on-going projects in Karnataka include doubling of the Ramangaram-Mysore line (93 km), the new lines of HassanBangalore (166 km), KadurChikmagalur-Sakaleshpur (93 km), Tumkur-Raidurga (207 km), Bagalkot-Kudichi (142 km) and Munirabad-Raichur (165 km), Gagag-Wadi (252 km) and Hejjala-Chamarajanagar (140 km) via Kanakapura.

A side note: Of the various projects, the Hejjala-Chamarajanagar (140 km) via Kanakapura seems to be least relevant...why not just use the existing line to Chamrajanagar as is? South of Kanakapura is forest area with elephants...why take a railway line through that? IR is already killing enough elephants in WB and Assam. Unless IR can afford to ensure that they go up on concrete pillars at least through forest area..highly unlikely right? Does it make sense just to connect Kanakapura to Hejjala and leave it at that?

Yesterday (4:03AM)   Inspection of Rajdhani rake reveals unhygienic practices, GM orders improvement

KOLKATA: Felt squeamish after watching the Rajdhani Express waiter place trays of food on the floor near the toilets before serving them to passengers? He may not have had any other option. In all probability, the pull-out trays above the pantry heaters in the coach were malfunctioning. At least, this...
Read more...
was one of the problems that came to the notice of Eastern Railway general manager R K Gupta when he inspected a rake of the 12301 Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express on Wednesday at the Tikiapara depot.
"All trays in all coaches must be made operational. While floors and fittings are being cleaned, proper attention is not being paid to walls, ceilings and electrical fittings inside bathrooms. Attention must also be paid to this. The stainless steel surfaces in corridors, including those around wash basins, should also be regularly cleaned and kept in spic and span condition. The dustbins kept near the doorways will have to be cleaned and painted on a regular basis. Doormats are provided outside toilets in AC-I coaches. They may also be provided in other coaches. These should be cleaned before journey commences," Gupta directed officials after the inspection.
Passengers have been regularly complaining of poor quality food and pests like cockroaches and even rats inside coaches. The issue of hygiene also came up after passengers complained that waiters are placing food trays on the floor near the toilets. Passengers have also been complaining of dirty, stained linen supplied during the journey. Gupta also inspected how the system of cleaning linen works.
"Stained linen are separated and sent for treatment through an outsourced agency. The performance of this agency is not found satisfactory. I inspected a few washed linen packages received from the agency. In many cases, there were stains and washing quality wasn't satisfactory. We should immediately work towards development of in-house facilities for treatment of stains. Passenger friendly information such as centralized catering help line and security help line may be provided with departmental information on the linen bags provided to passengers. Periodicity of cleaning of walls and ceilings inside the coaches must also be fixed," Gupta ordered.
While inspecting the pantry car, the GM noted that cleaning of refrigerators is not taking place on a regular basis. He ordered that a periodicity be maintained. He also suggested that the 2KW heaters be replaced by industrial-type microwave ovens to facilitate quicker heating of meals. "This will also help us migrate towards modern food packaging practices. Water was oozing out at the joint of aluminium floor surfaces. There is sufficient gap to allow pest infestation, besides being unhygienic. Suitable solution needs to be looked into," the GM said.

This is what GM said ....but will they follow it?
I think it would be better that such indicative lists should be printed and after every maintenance the list should be handed over to Station Master/Coach Inspector atleast 2 hours before train departure who will cross check and give green signal for d rake to start its journey....

Quite confusing.56504 goes to YPR till 15/9/14, whereas 56503 starts from BNC from 15/8/14.Is it clerical/typing error. Looks strange or Empty rakes may come to BNC from 15/8/14 from YPR till 15/9/14
