New Delhi: Ministry of Railways has started yet another passenger friendly measure on pilot basis, under which SMS messages would be sent to passengers informing about train cancellation in case the train in which they have booked their tickets for is cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances. Under this pilot project,...

the SMS messages are being sent to those passengers who are boarding at originating station. At a later stage, this will be extended to cover enroute station also. This exclusive SMS based service has been commenced on all India basis.
The SMS will be sent to their respective mobile numbers entered by them in reservation slips while buying tickets from PRS counters or while purchasing online e-tickets. The cancellation information would be sent quite in advance to the passengers for their convenience so that it may help them plan alternative arrangement in time. To avail this facility, passengers are advised to invariably mention their mobile numbers on the reservation slips.
The software for this service has been developed by Center for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), the information technology (IT) arm of the Indian Railways.

Quick decision to take back my family from lko to LTT with AC special this june. Since IRCTC fails on its usual timing for tatkal booking after giving 4 to 5 attempts i decided to book tickets thru touts (which i dont prefer) VIA PRS. Tout has got setting with local RPF and tout has arrange no. one position for me on window. Dot on 10.00 15 secons i got the ticket packed the bag and move towards station for catching 02111 from thane to LKO. During time being on platform no. 8 11054 AMH - LTT Express arrives and huge chaos arised on platform. wigth ladies compartment behind me with male sitting in ladies compartment.

He then went on to then state in Tamil that 2 of the water tankers, quite of a few which were parked in the open area adjoining the slum, were missing and feared to have been stolen
It was a probably a mixture of both :)

Little wonder that I decided to go closer to the track, a little ahead of my complex, for a closer better look, which ultimately proved to be too close for my comfort and ended as up with a narrow escape from danger
Fortunately I could not understand a word of what they were trying to achieve or the meaning of the abuses
AN ATTEMPTED RAILFANNING THAT WENT HORRIBLY ASTRAY
The Bangalore - Mumbai railway line goes alongside my apartment complex at Hoysalanagar just past the nondescript Chennasandra Stn. I get an elevated view of the track from my flat but not good enough to satiate my desires as a railfan. Little wonder that I decided to go closer to the track, a little ahead of my complex, for a better look, which ultimately proved to be too close for my comfort and ended up with a narrow escape from danger.
It was around 7.30 last evening and I tried to find a way to get as near as possible to the railway track in order to have a glimpse of the majestic NDLS-bound Karnataka Express. To reach the vantage point I had to negotiate
...

on foot a kuccha road leading from the 4th or 5th Main of T.C.Palya Main Road, Ramamurthy Nagar to a mound overlooking the rail line. Between the road and the track was a slum which I had to cross to reach my destination.
Just as I crossed the narrow path that led to the slum, I was in for a rude shock. I was accosted by 3 young toughs one of whom placed his hand on my shoulder in a vice-like grip and another caught hold of my left hand. The third fella was facing me and launched a torrent of abuse in Kannada. Suddenly he snatched my mobile which was in my right hand. After I could recover from the initial shock, I asked in Hindi " Yeh, kya ho raha hai ? ". My question was greeted with another barrage of abuse. Fortunately I could not understand what they were trying to achieve or the meaning of the abuses. After some time I gently said " Kannada gothilla ", the only 2 words I know in the local language. The abusive one in the group asked me what language I knew and I said English and Tamil. He then went on to state in Tamil that 2 of the water tankers, quite of a few which were parked in the open area adjoining the slum, were missing and feared to have been stolen. And that I was considered a PRIME SUSPECT, having been caught loitering near the parking lot. They said that I would not be allowed to leave the place till the police arrived and took me into custody. And only then would my mobile be handed over to me. They asked me what was my purpose in entering that area. My attempts to explain to them that I was trying to approach the track for the purpose of railfanning (Well I didn't use that word) cut no ice. In fact it only made matters worse and one of them asked in Tamil, WHAT WAS THE NEED TO COME ALL THE WAY THERE JUST TO SEE A TRAIN GO BY. However, with the passage of time and the lack of much reaction/response from my side, better sense prevailed among the group which had then increased to about 10 members.
By now , I felt mildly amused and realized that it was a case of mistaken identity. 7 or 8 minutes had passed by then and I started telling them in Tamil, that I felt sorry for their loss but was in no way responsible for what had happened. I asked them to accompany me to my flat where the security personnel would confirm my identity as a retired Bank Officer. They then asked me details about where I lived and finally after 10 mns let me go free with a strict warning not to come anywhere near their slum, whether for railfanning or otherwise.
At the end of the episode I am not too sure whether I was more relieved or amused. It was a probably a mixture of both :)

Almost every type of loco can be seen here also i have not seen a very big yard here , so yes I i know it's a major junction but i don't think it makes any sense to provide ET with so many locos with most of them resting all time
Does anybody find ET a such a big station to have so many locos allocated??
Almost every type of loco can be seen here also i have not seen a very big yard here , yes i know it's a major junction but i don't think it makes any sense to provide ET with so many locos with most of them resting all time. It's just an observation I don't belong to M.P , so I don't know much. Opinions & facts are respectably awaited .

1) Pic taken by me me- a person is crossing a closed lc;


Jun 04 2015 (8:07AM)
To inform you, as per railway act 89, trying to cross an lc improperly is a punishable of offence, fence, Rs 1000 fine or 1 year jail
Friends, if you are not aware what is today, today is International Level Crossing Day. So I wish you all happy and safe journey if you are having any.
Some small facts related to this topic:
1) Total level crossings at our country are around 33000;
2) Manned level crossings are 18000 roughly;
3) Unmanned lc's are 15000;
4) Over 40% of rail accidents happen at level crossings;
5) IR to take a scheme named 'Rail Mitra' where uniformed 3rd party vendors will protect the unmanned lc's on behalf of IR;
...
Read more...
6) IR has given a strict message to the drivers not to use headfones while crossing an lc. Otherwise strict action can be taken.
It is a shame that many people in our country are not aware of the level crossing regulations. Or may be they are in so much hurry that they can't show the luxary to obey the rule. It is also unfortunate that strong media like movies don't teach people to obey it, rather they influence to break it. To inform you, as per railway act 89, trying to cross an lc improperly is a punishable offence, resulting Rs 1000 fine or 1 year jail. So let's try to obey the rule, be safe, keep other people safe.
Pic courtesy:
1) Pic taken by me- a person is crossing a closed lc;
2) A scene from a famous car related Hollywood movie, there are countless other movie examples like this where cars are breaking through level crossings.
Thanks for reading.

One suggestion like railway stations have its time-table for passing and halting trains, this should be implemented at LC too.. during this time period LC should be closed 5 mins early and opened up after 15 mins..
