Do you think that the Indian Railways needs to go for marketing of its services through business branding techniques like logo graphics ?
Yes. IR needs to rebrand itself as it faces stiff competition from road and aviation transport60%9
No. IR is a monopoly in train running in our India so marketing isn't the need of the hour40%6
Not sure since its a PSU that faces stiff competition from other modes of transport in spite of monopolizing train running0%0
None of the above as you would rather like to discuss IR's marketing or re-branding issue by blogging here0%0

I just created an Online Event through my Facebook Page "Indian Railfanning" by the name of Recommending ReBranding of IR through Graphics Designing ... so Come One & Come All for discussing the Indian Railways as a brand, how should it do its marketing to win back the passengers who've switched to road & airlines and the graphics designing aspect in this process... thanks _/\_

Re-branding or marketing can't save or rather bring back this dead elephant.
-
Branding and re-branding of a service is required when it is new or has competition. Here is a monopoly and something existing for more than a century, so not at all needed. All know what Railways is, nothing new to tell the populace :)
Immaterial of new publicity gimmicks like free
...
more...
wi-fi, colorful liveries/logos; people know at the core the dirtiness of trains and more importantly how late running trains are and most important of all - the struggle to get a seat.
-
I will just give an insight to road transport to show it's just the time taken to reach their destination which people look for, not the outside glitz of the transport or the ads promoting them.
:
Take Madurai's Arapalyam Bus stand for example: the bus stand is not at all developed. Stinking and no basic clean toilet facilities and certainly no free wi-fi or glitzy food courts; but still thousands throng them and board the buses. They are not bothered about the facility. All they need is to have an ASSURED seat to travel and to reach their destination on time (the buses are clean too).
-
Travelling masses don't care for the logo or graphics or aesthetics of the mode of transport, or if Sanjeev Kapoor is cooking the food today or Ritu Beri has designed the dress worn by Driver and Conductor ...... just reaching the destination in time is needed.
-
From my travel I can say that - Short distance travel like say upto some 500Kms, people right from Haryana/Punjab to TN have mostly switched to buses. An irreversible process.... No marketing and re-branding or new Humsafar liveries will bring them back.

This station is our Nation's property rather than a Political Party's property so there's no chance of any political party symbol.
.
PS: In 1998 or so, Raebareli and Amethi were BJP and not Congress strongholds as Parliamentary Constituencies so it only shows that cities/townships/villages etc. are fixed for our Indian Railways forever but not for any one political party... aaj koi hain, kal nahin... the politics keeps changing but not our Dear IR :)

train was alloted a WAP 1 class of locomotive on its first run from Sealdah but from Amritsar this train got a VCD Medha Vigilance Control Device Fitted loco which is Installed on locomotive, VCD gives cyclic warning to the driver. Based on drivers reaction to this warning (in terms of any of the pre-defined sets of actions to be done by the driver), the system automatically resets the alerting cycle. In case, the driver fails to acknowledge the initial alert signals, a set of additional alert indications are given. Even failing to respond to these additional alert signals also will result in automatic application of penalty brakes.
The Rake consists of some ER coaches some NFR coaches and CR coaches.

Wow... AC coaches are sparkling... credit goes to RSA with Ananya Express which gets great patronage for passengers from Kolkata who are interested in Rajasthan Tourism (Jaipur, Udaipur, etc.). Such passengers go for 3rd AC booking a lot so ER increases these coaches in Rajasthan bound trains... this may be a reason why Durgiana & Akal Takht Expresses have got 3rd AC coaches from 2 to 4 in the past few years :)
.
PS: The Durgiana Express has RSA with Jaynagar Exp & Agra Cantt SF Weekly Exp so LHB doesn't seem

to be an immediate possibility since 13135/36 and 12319/20 aren't Rajasthan bound trains :-p :'-(

By WDS-4 you mean to say that mini size diesel loco called "Pappu" by many IR Personnel ? I suppose that Delhi Area's Shakhurbasti DLS homes WDS-4 Locos & a few of them do shunting between Budgam and Baramulla via Srinagar :)

MG & NG Diesels too great :)
Yes, the WDS4 class is famous as 'Pappu' among rail fans!! CLW produced these locos, along with YDM2 for metre gauge and ZDM3-5,NDM5 for Narrow gauge before shifting full-time to electric locos.

I don't think there would be any place where you can get reviews. You'll have to manually find the passengers. :D

I just saw a Steam Loco hauled train running in the UK after probably 50 years on IBN-7s program "Sau Baaton Ki Ek baat". It was a 2008 built steam loco that costed around Rs. 25 Crore (INR) ... should IR & CLW try something like this for heritage sake in our Country ? :)
