Good suggestion
Changing of Loco at Kiul rather than Lucknow make difference in reducing journey time and save fuel as well. also time-table between Aligarh and Delhi can be reduce. Further use of LHB rake will help in speedup of this train.

Mar 17 2017 (18:38)   Delhi metro heritage line inching towards commission

NEW DELHI: The heritage line is finally inching towards commission. On Friday, Delhi Metro announced that the integration of the signalling system from the existing operational section to the upcoming ITO to Kashmere Gate section would be done during the early morning hours on Sunday. Additionally, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said it has submitted the request for a safety audit and the requisite certifications. "Delhi Metro has submitted the papers pertaining to the 5.17km long section from ITO to Kashmere gate to the Commissioner for Metro Railway Safety for scrutiny," said the Delhi Metro spokesman, Anuj Dayal. He added that DMRC has also submitted papers to ISA (Independent Safety Assessor) for safety certification of signalling systems. "The documents will be scrutinised by CMRS office and thereafter, CMRS inspection shall be planned. The line will be opened for public after safety certification of signalling system by ISA," added Dayal. The...
signalling system meanwhile, is being synced through the entire corridor. Said Dayal, "A minor change in timings is necessitated on the ITO-Badarpur corridor in the morning on Sunday to facilitate the integration." Thus, the first train service from ITO to Badarpur will start at 6:10am, instead of 5:45am. Similarly, the first train service from Central Secretariat to ITO will depart at 6:01am instead of 5:31am.
Delhi Metro said that to aid the passengers, it would also ply additional feeder bus service between Central Secretariat and ITO metro stations at an interval of 15 minutes via Janpath and Mandi House during this period. Asked when the corridor is likely to be commissioned wholly, the DMRC official said it would be after the certifications. Typically, the certification comes a few days after the safety audit, as has been seen in the past. DMRC officials however, said the date of the safety audit hasn't been discussed yet. The heritage line has been in the process of commission for more than a year now. Scheduled to be thrown open in December 2015, it has been delayed by more than a year due to various issues, included the dispute over the location of the station near Jama Masjid, where a heritage monument was unearthed by locals just months after work started on the station. The existing Jama Masjid station was relocated after the incident. The corridor will go near some of the most famous heritage buildings in Delhi including Jama Masjid, Red Fort, Delhi Gate as well as Kashmere Gate.

Feb 06 2017 (22:32)   Railways to show green signal to a train in Andaman and Nicobar

A 240-KM broad-gauge railway line connecting two major islands, with bridges and stations along the coast, will be part of an ambitious rail link connecting Port Blair with Diglipur on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands — a first in the country that will bring the archipelago on the rail map.
The Railway Ministry is set to approve the project, which will connect the Union Territory’s capital city in the south with the largest town on the north Andaman island currently linked by a 350-km bus service that takes over 14 hours and a ship that takes around 24 hours. There is no air connectivity.
to an internal survey report of the ministry, the cost of the line will be Rs 2,413.68 crore with a negative rate of return on investment of -9.64 per cent. The Railways considers a line to be commercially viable if this figure is at least a positive of 12 per cent. But the ministry is set to approve this project owing to its “uniqueness and strategic importance”, according to documents reviewed by The Indian Express.
The ministry’s Planning and Finance directorates cleared the project last week saying it is desirable because “it is unique, away from the mainland, and has tourism potential.”
Giving a fillip to the rail link, the Union Territory administration has agreed to share 50 per cent of the project’s operational cost — or loss.
“As soon as the line is commissioned, tourism will see a jump from the current 4.5 lakh visitors a year to around 6 lakh a year, as per our estimates. So even though the railway survey shows a negative return, our assessment is otherwise. However, we have agreed to share the operational losses, if any,” Jagdish Mukhi, Lieutenant Governor of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, told The Indian Express.
According to the UT administration, the line has tourism potential and is of “immense strategic value” to the defence forces because Diglipur is just 300 km by sea from the southern coast of Myanmar — a broad-gauge train line from Port Blair to Diglipur will take three hours at the most.
The Railways’ Planning wing has suggested that the project may be taken up as part of the strategic lines it will build for Defence ministry, such as those in the border regions of the Northeast. The Finance arm has said that it may be taken up as a national project, like the Kashmir link, in which the general exchequer is billed. The Railway Board will take a final view on this issue soon.
The initial survey for the proposed line was completed in December 2014 but the plan was dropped. Last year, the project received a fresh push when the Railways updated the survey and the UT administration said it would chip in.
Among the major tourist attractions in Diglipur are the Ross and Smith islands. “These are just two of the main attractions. Lakhs of tourists take great pains to reach there from Port Blair every year. With the railway line in place, that part essentially become a part of the capital, beneficial to tourists, local residents and the defence forces,” said Mukhi
