and the list goes on
After the recent rise in fares traveling on a preplanned holiday in 1st ac's in railways will not be a option for many especially if it is a rajdhani.
here are some fare comparisons of 1st ac rajdhani fare with ordinary airfare....
All fares are for 1st august
Delhi to Mumbai
1st ac fare Rs 4680 Airfare Rs 4011(spicejet)
Delhi to Kolkata
1st ac fare Rs 4775 Airfare Rs 4011(go air)
Delhi to Bangalore
1st ac fare Rs
...
Read more...
6675 Airfare Rs 6341(spicejet)
Delhi to Hydrabad
1st ac fare Rs 5370 Airfare Rs 5848 (indigo)
Delhi to Chennai
1st ac fare Rs 6355 Airfare Rs 6341(spicejet) (31 st July)
..........and the list goes on
source: respective sites
hence I think that the recent fare revision will be too expensive for the railways.

Sir railways will always have their catch on the passanjars and I will tell u why.
- The airfares that you see are exclusive of the transaction charges which is around rs 150-200 and will keep increasing.
- The UDF is being raised and it will the only go upwards
-all are low cost airlines. But a pakat of cashews having 6 full and 3 half pieces and it costs rs 70. Buy water just enough to swallow a tablet and pay rs 30. If you want to swalow capsule rs 60
-you cancel a 4000 tikat and you lose rs 2000.But you cancel a 5000 tikat on IR and you lose 100 only.
...
Read more...
-Taxi to the airports may be 600-800 rs. But autorikshaw to the railway station rs 50-100 only.
-Many peepull suffer from the fear of flying,they will take train only.
Unless you are a high flying corporate whose tickets are reimbursed by your company and who values time more than anything you will travel in train.
-Most indians have too much time, they can afford the time.
-Too many concessions on IR.
And above all Indians genetically and historically fans of trains. Only a minute percentage of them are on IRI. Others dont say it but the affection is always there.
Yes low fares and promo fares will snatch away some from IR 1 AC but a majority will always remain here. They will always remain loyal.

This is just a fare comparison. What I mean is that if it goes on like this we will soon have train fares higher than air fares

This is not Dj - Njp Toy train. This train runs till kgn. The stretch between kgn and Tdh is inaccessible, by rail as well as road, due to a landslide a few years back. Hence njp - dj toy train is still not in operation.

Earlier years, the train 01067/01068 was operated through the same root but extended upto Tirunelveli. This time, this train stopped at Kochuveli. SR has no idea to give any special train to Tamil Nadu people. It always give preference to the people from Kerala.

bombaythanatrain1853.jpgAbout 157 years ago the first passenger train ran in India between Bori Bunder in Bombay and Thane. On the 16th of April, 1853 in a 14 carriage long train drawn by 3 locomotives named Sultan, Sindh and Sahib. It was around 21 miles in length and took approximately 45 minutes. Ever since the first run the Indian Railways have been a booming industry. Today as we celebrate it's first run let us remember the efforts put in by the people of our country to make the railways a successful one. The picture alongside shows the first passenger train in India and is taken from Wikipedia.

Luggage helpers with trollies carry luggage from any part of the station to any other part at a very minimal rate. So it is advised not to take help from the porters wearing red clothes as they charge exorbitantly.
