I have question. Pardon me if I sound too dumb. I wish to know what system does IR use at their PRS counters to reserve tickets? It looks like a DOS based user interface. Is that true? Or do they use some other technology on front end?

I don't know if it's a VT terminal or DOS. Both look so similar. Can someone throw more light on this?

Going by Wikipedia, the UI is written in C and Fortran (both obsolete). Why don't they consider upgrading to a better UI application/system?

C is used majorly,only in Linux kernels. I've not seen any other major program using C. However, the larger question is the exact technology they use, and why do they not upgrade it?

Durgapur is a Great Station for high speed skips(Thanks to this flyover too: /blog/post/597014) while traveling in SF Trains. Videographers should make sure to take videos of their train skipping DGR asap or they may land with an Incomplete video like mine: click here ... ;-p

Vindhyachal Railway Station is also a very prime place for spotting high speed trains, mostly during night. I'd spotted as many as 7 Rajdhanis from 1:00 hrs. to 5:30 hrs. (I could identify them as Rajdhanis only because of their red livery. Even the windows couldn't be distinguished from one another).

coupling photo of ndls-trivandrum rajdhani at sindhudurg station, awaiting crossing by trivandrum-ndls rajdhani. i was in mandovi express waiting for these 2 crossings.
why there are 6 coupling tubes in rajdhani (as seen in photo) & just 2 in regular express trains?

DearAll
I am finally back to this site after a long-long time. A lot has changed on this community since then. Many more members, much more pleasant UI and various other features. Well I also used to be admin those days, but that Google's friend Connect services are not in use, I had to recreate my account.
Anyways, but I did see many familiar names. Looking forward to begin a new journey on this site. Need to learn much more.
Thanks

Train Review:
I traveled in this train about a month back and advice people to avoid this train. Here are a few good and bad points about my journey on this train:
Good
1# Generally on time. Doesn't get delayed much. If at all it does, it covers up.
2#
...
more...
Neat train.
Not so Good
1# No Pantry. You'll die out of hunger if your mom hasn't packed it for you.
2# No towels provided in AC2 coach. No soap in toilets either.
3# No curtains in AC3.
4# Most of charging points short-circuit and would come out along with socket once you plug out your device.
5# High slack time. Can cover the distance to NZM in quite less time.
Well, these things can always be taken care of, this train, nevertheless is an important connection b/w Coimbatore and New Delhi and it's frequency should be increased. (This train currently has a RSA with Coimbatore - Chennai Express).
#
Hope that was helpful.
Thanks & Regards
Prashant

Pantry is not there but catering is there. Food is loaded at different points like Kacheguda, Jhansi etc. But quality is not good by any standard. Better take your own food.
Additionally, there were bugs in the berth.
Thanks
