MADURAI: Private firms would be engaged by the Madurai Division of Indian Raiilways at a cost of Rs 7.5 crore for on board cleaning of long distance trains as part of its comprehensive cleaning scheme, a top railway official said here today.Four long distance trains, including those to Okhla in New Delhi, Howrah and Mumbai would be brought under the scheme from December this year, Divisional Railway Manager A K Rastogi told reporters here.Referring to the proposed 'Swach Sharat cleanliness Campaign' to be launched on October 2, he said the Railways planned to build a water recycling plant to augment water supply for cleaning operations of coaches.He said the high pressure water cleaning system was already successful and had saved 60 per cent water and if the Rs 90 lakh recycling plant was also in place, there would be enough water to clean coaches. The division would soon have its...

own laundry facility, he said.

The 221-km gauge railway track that was built by the British way back in the last decade of the 19th century through the most difficult Barail mountains in Assam’s Dima Hasao district, and was always referred to as an engineering marvel, has become history. The zig-zag metre-gauge track whose 37 tunnels were a major attraction, has closed down for ever to make way for a broad gauge track that will become operational by April next year.
“When the 05697 Hill Queen Express, the last passenger train, left Haflong at 1:45 pm on Monday, it was indeed a tearful moment. No trains will come to this historic Lower Haflong station again,” said Anup Biswas, a local journalist-cum-activist who is pressing for declaring the 111-year old railway station as a heritage museum along with four other stations that surround the mountain on which

Haflong, Assam’s only hill station is located.Recalling the history of the metre gauge track that the British had built over a period of 16 years, Northeast Frontier Railway CPRO Sugato Lahiri said, “The Badarpur-Lumding section was part of the Assam Bengal Railway formed in 1892 to primarily evacuate tea, coal and timber produced in the upper Assam region. While the Dibru-Sadiya Railway, opened in 1882 had already started moving these items to steamers on the Brahmaputra, the Lumding-Badarpur section was built to have direct access to the nearest Chittagong port.”
Following independence and Partition of Bengal, the Lumding-Badarpur section however became the only life-line for land-locked Tripura, Mizoram, the Barak Valley in southern Assam as also south-eastern Manipur. With the metre-gauge track closed for the next six months in order to facilitate final laying of the broad-gauge tracks, these states are now faced with an uphill task of stocking foodgrains and also transporting by road, one which is at least two times costlier than moving by goods train.
Noted author Arup Kumar Dutta, who had written a wonderful history of railways in the Northeast (“Indian Railways: The Final Frontier. 2002) has gives a lot of details about how challenging a task laying the Lumding-Badarpur track was in the 19th century. Describing it as a “magnificent feat” Dutta also refers to how British officers and their Indian and Afghan labourers worked against difficult terrain, dense jungles infested with tigers, elephants and mosquitoes, as also hostile Dimasa and Zemi tribesmen who thought it was an invasion of their beautiful mountain villages.
Dutta also quotes from travel-writer Bill Aitken, who in his ‘Travels by a Lesser Line’ in 1993 had written, “One had to come to check out the claims that the Lumding-Badarpur section was the most spectacular mountain line in India. he most scenic part of the journey is the ascent from Lumding to Haflong Hill, 116 kms in six hours… The total effect is of impenetrability and one is filled with admiration for the original builders of the line. For those brought up on the notion that the Ooty climb – also a metre gauge – is the most impressive mountain line, the ride to Haflong will prove a sensational journey of discovery.” Officials in Northeast Frontier Railway however claim that once completed and commissioned the new broad guage line too will be equally exciting. Two particular tunnels, one over three kms and another 1.68 kms long, as well as 419 bridges, the one on the Doyang being 61 metres long and 54 metres tall, would sure maintain the charm that the old metre gauge track had, they claim. “While 37 tunnels and 586 bridges, including the amazing Doyang bridge that takes a curve literally up in the sky will now become part of nostalgia, eleven new tunnels and several high bridges that have been already completed for the broad guage track will be equally attractive. The present-day engineer too has accomplished a job as daunting as did his British predecessors in the 19th century. And, while steep gradiants, geological instability, jungles and wild elephants are still there, the present-day workforce had to also work under the shadow of militancy,” said chief engineer RS Jingar. - See more at: click here

KOLKATA: A notice pasted on the glass at Metro Railway ticket counters has taken passengers by surprise this week. It lists a series of crimes against women and mentions the penalties in each case.The transgressions listed include 'eve teasing', stalking, molestation, photography without permission and rape.While curious travellers have been surprised at the notice that has been put up at 14 stations so far, the Metro authorities believe the announcement will serve as a reminder and a warning to miscreants who often create trouble during the Pujas by taking advantage of the overcrowded compartments.Park Street, Esplanade, Rabindra Sarobar, Shyambazar and Dum Dum are among the 14 stations, which already display the notice. The remaining 10 stations will have it by Tuesday, which happens to be Sashthi.The passenger count has already started rising at the Metro, even though it will offer special extended services only from October 1."The idea is to...

spread awareness about the crimes and its consequences. We have such a huge rush during the Pujas, that anything is possible. We expect our passengers to read the notice and be careful. Along with the heightened security arrangements, we would like commuters to take all possible precautions. The notice is obviously a warning to the miscreants as well," said a Metro Railway official.He added that the decision to put up the notice was taken by the Metro authorities locally.The announcement mentions that 'eve teasing' is punishable with three years' imprisonment and a fine. Stalking could lead to seven years in prison and a fine. Molestation could land one in jail for five years and attract a penalty. Clicking someone's photograph without permission is punishable with 1-3 years in jail, while rape could lead to a jail term of seven years and a fine.Additional security arrangements have been made for the Puja days when the crowd is expected to swell. Three-hundred RPF and an equal number of Metro Railway police personnel will be posted at the stations along with 200 Railway Police Special Force (RPSF) men. Metro will have its own scouts and guides to help passengers too. Civil defence personel will be present at the platforms to assist commuters.According to the Metro Railway Police, which is under Kolkata Police, the notice is part of an effort to spruce up security at Metro stations during the Pujas."Incidents of pickpocketing, molestation and stalking were being reported frequently from Esplanade, Park Street, Maidan, Jatin Das Park, Shyambazar and Dum Dum stations. So, we decided to step up electronic surveillance and patrolling at these stations. We have introduced more frequent checks and frisking. There will be more women police personnel on duty as well," said a Metro Railway police official.Metro will run 544 services between Kavi Subhas and Dum Dum during the three days of the Pujas this year. Of these, 206 trains will run between Dum Dum and Noapara. Officials will do their best to operate only the better rakes to prevent any snags.

clean with special focus o­n Railway stations, trains, track and colonies. CCTV cameras installed at railway stations will be utilised to monitor the cleanliness activities, said the GM.
Shri Srivastava stressed that the cleanliness campaign o­n SCR is not a o­ne-day or a o­ne-time affair, but will continue as a sustained campaign. SCR is striving for a clean environment in railway premises. In this connection, bio-toilets are being introduced in a big way in trains. So far, 1183 bio-toilets have been inducted in 383 coaches o­n 21 rakes. Action is under progress to fit bio-toilets o­n other trains too in the near future, said Shri Srivastava. o­n-Board Housekeeping Services (OBHS) are available in 36 trains o­n SCR. In addition, under Clean Train Station (CTS) scheme, 66 long distance express trains are being cleaned at Vijayawada and Guntakal Stations at present. This scheme will further be extended to Secunderabad and Renigunta Stations also, bringing another 49 long distance passing-through trains in its purview shortly, the GM said.
‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ campaign o­n SCR also aims at creating public awareness and seeking the cooperation of passengers in maintaining Railway premises clean. Several public awareness campaigns have already been launched to sensitize the public in this matter. However, in case any person is found to be soiling the railway premises, he/she will be penalised upto Rs 500. The GM said that in the anti-littering checks conducted during April to August 2014, 20,800 such cases have been booked and Rs 40.5 lakh realized as penalty from the defaulters. These anti-littering checks will be intensified to ensure clean railway premises.
The General Manager also stated that SCR has undertaken several steps to handle passenger rush and curb malpractices in mass contact areas during the ensuing festive season of Dasara / Diwali. Some of these measures include running of 299 Special Trains during the months of September and October, 2014 as announced so far. Most of these trains will be operated from Twin Cities (Secunderabad / Hyderabad / Kacheguda stations) to several popular destinations such as Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Machilipatnam, Tirupati, Kakinada, Guwahati, Santragachi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Gondia and Hubli etc.
12 Jansadharan Special Trains are also being run to meet demand from unreserved segment. These Jansadharan Special trains will be helpful in clearing a large number of general class passengers during the festive rush season, he added.
Shri Srivastava announced that SCR has set up a dedicated four digit, 24X7, Passenger Security Helpline Number – 1322 to strengthen security. This will be made operational over the Zone from 2nd October, 2014. This Helpline facility will provide speedy assistance to the passengers within South Central Railway jurisdiction in the event of theft/snatching of passenger luggage/valuables, pick pocketing, harassment by co-passengers and un-authorised passengers travelling in the coaches reserved for women and physically challenged persons or any other criminal incidents etc. The call will directly be received in the Zonal Railway Protection Force Control Room, which will alert the local security officials concerned for necessary immediate action.
