    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.

Subhash, what i am saying is don't run diesel on an electric sector. Why run a specialized WCAM on a sector where a WAP/WAM can do the job. Tell me why is the 12293/94 Duronto Express using a WCAM when some of the other trains are using WAP or WAM's?
WCAM engines are more valuable to trains working on the CST line, what are they doing hauling trains out of LTT ? A typical train from CST to Pune takes 4 hrs, so for a up & down run of 8 hrs IR is literally blowing smoke in the face of electrification. IR has been using WAG's on passenger trains & most of the time i have found the trip shed at CST full of WCAM's so where is the shortage??

Sampark Kranti Express trains are a series of super-fast trains operated by the Indian Railways providing quick connectivity to the national capital, New Delhi.
The words Sampark and Kranti are borrowed from Sanskrit. Sampark(Devanagari:-सम्पर्क) means Contact and Kranti(Devanagari:-क्रान्ति ) means Revolution. The combined name denotes the steps taken by Indian Railways to provide high speed train connections from cities around India with the National Capital through the provision of non-air conditioned express trains with few stops and operating at high speeds

A lot of people travel from Korba, Bilaspur and Raipur to Rayagada , Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam. We need a day time intercity express from KRBA to VSKP and Vice versa. The Present Train # 18517 KRBA - VSKP is over loaded so it would be better if a new SF Exp with halts is also introduced.

Jul 27 (9:55AM)   SCR officials in a fix as double-decker fails to draw crowds

This is a new feature showing past edits to this News Post.
Two-and-a-half months after the much hyped 10-coach air conditioned double-decker chugged out of Kacheguda station with fanfare, South Central Railway (SCR) officials are disappointed at the poor occupancy.
The response that the impressive-looking 10-coach, air-conditioned double-decker train got when it was

flagged off on May 13, bound for Guntur and again on May 14, when it headed out to Tirupati, was enough to make officials assume that it would be an instant hit. They had plans to ask the Railway Board to sanction another rake once the service became popular.
However, as the days passed, poor occupancy levels have left them disheartened. A senior official said the average occupancy of the train to Guntur till now was a mere 15 per cent, while the same train on its return to Kacheguda registered 29 per cent. But on its run to Tirupati, the occupancy was pegged at 48 per cent, while on its return the average was logged at 32 per cent.
Senior officials are trying to analyse the reasons for less than expected occupancy. One of the answers that came up in a brain-storming session was extending the train to Vijayawada.
But officials felt that it would take a full 150 minutes (two-and-a-half hours) for the train to travel the 35-odd km between the two places and return. This would throw current running schedules awry, sources said.
The ten AC coach train, powered by two generator cars, was a visual delight with its bright yellow and vibrant red colours creating a charm. The double-decker that has a middle deck, apart from the lower and upper decks, plush seating, eye-friendly ambient lighting, comfortable air-conditioning and well-planned interior aesthetics, was expected to attract passengers.
According to the run schedule, the 10-coach double-decker makes two runs each to Guntur (Tuesday and Friday) and returns the same day. The same rake leaves on Wednesday and Saturday and reaches Tirupati the same day. On the return, it leaves Tirupati on Thursday and Sunday.

The closest you will find it at Dadar for that also you need to cross by a Overhad Bridge.
Matunga east and Matunga West is bit far compared to Dadar where you have to go via Z Bridge wile wlaking on which you can see the railway workshop

The train later resumed its journey. The incident had made the passengers panicky as they were not sure of what had happened.
