Capita (Initial) investment is high for electrification. But running costs are less. But private companies have their own C &B criteria.

TVC Rajdhani Express Gets Insulted!!
Date: July 18, 2012
Location: Savarda, Konkan Railway
Time: 8:40
Camera: Nikon L310
12997 Tirunelveli Hapa Express is seen here blasting past the King of Konkan Railway - the 12432 Nizamuddin - Trivandrum Rajdhani - India's longest running Rajdhani Express (the one that covers the most distance).
The King was taken to the loop line at Savarda to let us pass. I was not expecting this and managed to take only a few seconds of the video. Also, it was too rainy outside so couldn't risk my new camera!
I have never seen the TVC Rajdhani wait for anyone before. Even when I was in the ERS LTT Duronto, it was always the Duronto which had to stop. This was freakin awesome!!

Pl.note that the 'guys in the cabin' are not the persons who decide which should get priority. It is decided by control room.

The bullett-nosed WP locomotives were the mainstay of broad gauge passenger services on the Indian Railways for a long time until 1995, when they retired. This loco, no WP7200 was one of the 16 prototypes built by Baldwin, USA before regular production started at the Chittaranjan loco Works in India. The locomotive is seen here at the National Railway Museum in Delhi in February 1999. It has since moved to another location fo restoration and operation on main line railtours.

Thank you. I never knew that Nagpur and Indore were found only 300 years back. I was under the impression that both are still ancient.

12785 Kacheguda-Exp arrived on PF 2. In a busy station such as SBC, this rake will remain in the same platform till departure in the evening. I find TVs in II Sitting also. But they are yet to be switched on. Last Friday morning I travelled in Shatabdi and returned to SBC only yesterday morning.

KR Puram. Since this coach is a UR in this train, it seems the TVs aren't switched on. There are 4 TVs arranged very nicely so that everyone can see the TV.

Talking/admitting a weakness and lack of character cannot be and should not be considered unpatriotic. As per your standards,only hypocrites should remain in India. We should always know our strength and weakness. No use in fooling ourselves by adopting holier than you attitude.

Come October, Bangalore City railway station will have a new building at the Okalipuram end of the platforms. South Western Railways (SWR), in its extensive expansion plans for Bangalore division, assured that this facility will be launched soon. Reservation counters, concourse, rest area and rooftop restaurant in a six to seven storeyed building will be the priority.
