HOG WAP7 system only work in LHB coaches & AC Double Decker trains not for ICF coaches trains. For hauling ICF trains normal WAP7 is used.

HOG WAP7 looks better in LHB trains & normal WAP7 is with ICF coaches. HOG WAP7 & LHB coaches is future of IR.
Production of LHB coaches are now priority & replacement of ICF coaches from all mail/express trains in phase wise is good decision of IR.

Bhai aap bilkul sahi bole. WAP5 jab chalta to toofan aur bhuchaal aajaata hai. P7 se P5 more expensive locomotive hai. P7 se P5 pahle production huva phir bhi P5 ki tulna P7 nahi kar sakta. Speed ke maamle mein WAP5 ka koi todd nahi hai. WAP7 bhi achha locomotive hai main to 3 phase locomotives ka fan hoon.

Feb 14 2017 (07:40)   Around India in 17 days: the story of a film on 100 travel conversations

The Unreserved to premiere on YouTube on February 15
Journeying around the world took 80 days in the Jules Verne classic but three Mumbai boys, Omkar Divekar, Samarth Mahajan and Rajat Bhargava, went around India in 17 days in unreserved compartments of 10 trains.
During the journey spanning 25,000-odd km, they spoke to over a 100 people on subjects as varied as religion and love, career and ambition. They captured their conversations with a Canon 5D DSLR camera and returned to the city with close to 45 hours of footage. This has now
been edited into an hour-long feature documentary, The Unreserved, which premieres on YouTube channel Camera And Shorts on February 15.
A Camera And Shorts production, The Unreserved was inspired by Jagriti Yatra (journey of social awakening), an initiative by NGO Jagriti Sewa Sansthan. Jagriti Yatra takes youngsters on an annual 15-day train journey across 8,000-odd kilometres to expose them to grassroots reality.
Initially, the trio thought of doing just the longest journey in India: the 85-hour-long Dibrugarh-Kanniyakumari stretch on the Vivek Express, but decided to be more ambitious by going to the farthest point in each direction that the Indian Railways could take them to. They travelled from Mumbai to Okha in Gujarat in the west, then to Delhi and Jammu. From Jammu, they drove to Banihal, where they took the Banihal-Baramulla train, the farthest to the north. They returned to Jammu and Delhi and then headed to Dibrugarh in the northeast. From there, it was all the way to Kanniyakumari in the south, and then to Thiruvananthapuram before returning to Mumbai.
The journey, which began in March last year, got much traction on Twitter thanks to their regular tweets. However, the charm is not in the details and nitty-gritties of travel, but in the conversations they were able to strike, and shoot, with complete strangers.
“It wasn’t about places as about the people,” says Divekar. Far from finding their camera intrusive, people across regions, religions, caste and class divides opened up and told compelling stories, the strongest of which have been strung together in the film. The most heart-warming, of course, are those about love, like this guy in Kashmir talking about how a girl seals her commitment for you by accepting the mobile you gift her. Interestingly, he claims to have gifted mobile phones to not one but three women.

Feb 13 2017 (22:18)   माता वैष्णो देवी कटरा के दर्शन करने जाने वाले यात्रियों को मिली एक और ट्रेन की सुविधा

पानीपत | पानीपतसे माता वैष्णो देवी कटरा में दर्शन करने जाने वाले यात्रियों के लिए अच्छी खबर है। रेलवे मंडल ने 04401/04402 आनंद विहार टर्मिनल श्री माता वैष्णो देवी कटड़ा एक्सप्रेस नई ट्रेन चलाने का एलान किया है। यह ट्रेन 3 अप्रैल से 1 जुलाई तक समर स्पेशल के रूप में चलेगी। पानीपत से यात्रियों को यह ट्रेन अंबाला कैंट में जाकर पकड़नी होगी। वैसे तो इससे पहले भी नियमित चल रही श्री शक्ति एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन भी यात्रियों को अम्बाला कैंट जाकर ही पकड़नी पड़ती है।
जिन यात्रियों की श्री शक्ति एक्सप्रेस में सीट बुक नहीं हो पाती, उन यात्रियों के लिए नई ट्रेन बेहतर विकल्प हो सकती है।
की छुट्टियों में विशेष सुविधा
रेलवे मंडल ने यात्रियों को बेहतर सुविधाएं देने के उद्देश्य से देशभर में विशेष ट्रेन चलाई हैं और कई चलाने की तैयारी है। इसकी कड़ी में 3 अप्रैल से नई ट्रेन सुविधा शुरू होगी। यह सप्ताह में 2 दिन सोमवार शुक्रवार को यह आनंद विहार टर्मिनल से चलेगी। इसके बाद मंगलवार शनिवार को श्री माता वैष्णो देवी से वापस आने के लिए रवाना होगी। आनंद विहार टर्मिनल दिल्ली से सोमवार रात 10:20 मिनट रवाना होगी। अंबाला कैंट में मंगलवार सुबह 3:15 बजे पहुंचेगी। यहां 10 मिनट रुकने के बाद चलेगी और कटड़ा में मंगलवार को दोपहर 1 बजे पहुंचेगी। इसके बाद कटड़ा से मंगलवार रात 11:50 पर रवाना होगी और बुधवार सुबह 9:10 बजे अंबाला कैंट पहुंचेगी। यहां से चलकर दोपहर 2:05 बजे आनंद विहार टर्मिनल पहुंचेगी।

Mata Vaishno Devi Katra ke liye ek regular train dena hai to Mumbai CSTM ke liye dijiye. Is train ki bahut jarurat hai isse J&K ke tourism aur Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra ke liye aur J&K ke logon ke fayda hoga.

Border is very near from MBF only 2 km away.
I think only allow platform no.1 is good for taking photography. Pfs 2 & 3 has lots of international immigration security cabins fully covered & passenger not allowed. Take ID proof like pan card, college Id, aadhar card with you. It is good experience to see thar desert munabao station.

Yes doubling was going in full swing between nagothane & roha. From Panvel to Nagothane doubling was commissioned & trains operational was started in 2016. Upto Nagothane to Roha doubling is almost completed only approx 1 km track doubling work is left. I think it will take 5 - 6 months more for completion. I seen the section on 4th Feb this month when I traveling in ne travail exp from thrissur to LTT.

Kasu Nagothane - Section was opened in March 2016.
Nagothane Nidi - Only bridge on NH 66 was left. Upgradation of Nidi was going on.
Nidi Roha - Only between Roha Ashtami and Roha station was left due to encroachment and the matter was in court.
I had taken video of Nagothane Roha when I travelled on this route in July 16.

Real problem is of section which is near to Roha as villagers had approached court and their houses are near to track.
