As security becomes a prime concern in the run-up to the elections, the Government Railway Police and Railway Protection Force (RPF) officials have turned a blind eye towards the safety of passengers at the city railway station.
Jammu Railway Station, which receives about five lakh passengers every day, has been earmarked as sensitive by security agencies but still the security arrangements made are not up to the mark. The security is handled by GRPF and RPF which do not have any advanced security apparatus.
STATE TIMES undertook a reality check on security arrangements at the railway station. The result was an eye-opener. Entrance is left open with no security while the entry on platforms remains unrestricted with a few cops deployed. When we visited the railway station no one was found manning

the main entry points. In the wake of the upcoming elections, the security arrangements need to be made fool-proof but the same was found lacking especially at the entrance with no arrangements for frisking. Thus, making it a freeway for anyone to create trouble.
Moreover, not even a single RPF jawan is there in the waiting hall cum booking counter except a few stray dogs that were resting and ‘keeping a vigil on the passengers.’
Som Nath Sharma, a traveller at the railway station, said, “J and K has suffered at the hands of terrorists who often take advantage of such security lapses. Adding that the station lacks proper security mechanism, as anyone could enter without being frisked or noticed by the police. The railway authorities should depute more policemen here to keep security in place.”
When STATE TIMES contacted, SDPO, Railways Charanjeet Singh, he shared, “There are no flaws in security setup at the railway station. We are keeping a close vigil on each and every movement through the CCTV cameras. At present there are 16 CCTV cameras installed and our team is monitoring it closely. We have made different units which are active round the clock and are keeping a close watch on the track and the security system. There are no loopholes in the security arrangements. Moreover, we are planning to increase the number of CCTV cameras on the platform so that we can keep the security arrangements in place during the upcoming elections.”

in consultations with RDSO (Research Development and Standard Organisation) had made some changes in these coaches in designing of coupler system for smoother ride than Shatabdi and Rajdhani coaches, installation of smoke and fire detection system and automatic sliding of inner doors besides Passengers information system.
The GM said the approximate cost of one high speed coach would be between Rs 2.25-2.50 crore. He said that high speed coaches manufactured in RCF for Shatabdi and Rahdhani express trains are capable of running at the optimum speed of 160 kilometres per hour.
The GM said railways has selected ten routes on which high speed trains would run as announced by railway minister in his budget speech.
Initially speed of these trains would be 160 kilometre on select rail routes and gradually it would be enhanced up to 200 kilometre after upgrading the signalling system, barricading the area, he said.
The railway board and officials of railway department had already conducted a trial on these coaches on Delhi-Agra section at a speed of 160 kilometres and covered the 200 kilometre distance in 99 minutes a few days ago, a railway official said.
The RCF has also started working on the high speed coaches capable of running at a speed of 200 kilometre per hour by making some changes like automatic outer doors, changes in braking system with the provision of electro pneumatic brakes, noise reduction with better sound insulation, provision of TV set on the back of every seat in the executive chair cars and WI-Fi system besides improved vestibules, the GM said.
He said that high speed coach capable of running at 200 kilometres per hour would be rolled out by June next year.

The Harbour line commuters, who are already cursing railways for the want of fast trains and better facilities, will have one more reason to do so.
According to a recent discussion between various authorities from the railways, Mumbai Port Trust, Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation and a few other organisations, plans are being considered to terminate the Harbour line at Dockyard Road instead of CST. Sources, who attended the meet, claimed the decision was being mulled to accommodate the much-needed 5th and 6th line on the CST-Kurla stretch. “Land availability is the biggest issue, especially between CST and Parel. So we are considering the possibility of terminating trains at Dockyard Road and digressing the alignment on the proposed Wadala-Ballard Estate Harbour line,” a senior railway official said.
The proposed line will be partly

constructed on the Mumbai Port Trust land after the Harbour line is diverted from Dockyard Road towards Ballard Estate. Sources claimed the port land is equipped with tracks for goods trains, which are not used on a regular-basis. Besides, there is space to lay two more lines for local trains that would hardly be 12 metres wide. Once the Harbour line is diverted, the existing lines will then be available for the proposed 5th and 6th lines — for operating long-distance services. These two lines will allow long distance trains to bypass lines used by fast trains from CST to Kalyan. It will also help improve timings for suburban services, as long distance trains starting from CST and Kurla LTT will not obstruct the movement of local trains. “The project requires demolition of numerous buildings and rehabilitation of people. This will make setting up 5th and 6th line an uphill task,” said a CR official. Other ideas Railway authorities also intend to construct a skywalk on P D’mello Road — between Dockyard Road and Sandhurst Road stations. This would help commuters wanting to walk to the Sandhurst Road station and take the main line train for CST. Or they can always travel on the same route till Ballard Estate. New plans ahead >> Railways is considering to terminate the Harbour line at Dockyard Road instead of CST. >> The proposed Wadala-Ballard Estate Harbour line will be partly constructed on the Mumbai Port Trust land after the Harbour line is diverted from Dockyard Road towards Ballard Estate. >> Harbour line commuters can either walk to Sandhurst Road station and take the main line train for CST or travel on the same route till Ballard Estate.

It will increase burden on Sandhurst Road station.For terminating suburban trains at Dockyeard road station is not much easy as it is on elavtion. The termination at Dockyard station is of no use to people coming from Vashi, Belapur and Panvel

Agree, most commuters align at Kurla for the BKC. Post Kurla, trains are empty. However, diverting trains to another route, will only invite protests. Diverting trains from Dockyard road is fine. However, I feel there should be a good no of services that continue to run up to CST.

Though terminating at Dockyard Rd station won't help at all, but once the route is extended to Ballard Estate it will truly be helpful for all... There are many offices towards Ballard Estate... I suggest CR should look for an alternative to connect Harbour line with CST before going ahead with the plan

What is your earliest memory of (good) train food? Mine is the hot thali that would be served to First Class passengers from the pantry, which you could visit to get warm milk, water or boil egg any time of the journey and often be rewarded with something scrumptious that the cooks (who were khandani bawarchi by the way) may have invented for the next meal. It could be a simple dal or a chicken curry. What made this slightly watered down version addictive were two things: One, the way it was served: in china white crockery with a smile. And two, the subtle flavour. The meal was made to suit your young palate. And that etched it into your mind like first love.
Over the years of course the memory has had a lard layer of rather disappointing, insipid food
...

that did nothing to raise your stomach’s libido. But now with the pantry car soon becoming history, it is only befitting to recall the single ‘investment by the British’ that made journey the ‘food-centric’.
So where do we begin this journey? 1857, the time when the drama began. Seasoned engineer Robert Maitland Brereton was given the charge of expanding the rail roads in India. He had to create the longest most complex network of railways to connect the richest colony from end to end.
Dining Car on Imperial Mall Dining Car on Imperial Mall (Source: Railway Archive pictures)
But little did Brereton, or the Empire, realise then that what his 6,400 km network would by the turn of century prove to be a milestone in not only shaping the Indian hospitality, but also the trail that created food memories of millions of Indians and their generations.
The story began with the Allahabad-Jabalpur branch line of the East Indian Railway that opened in June 1867. This was the first of Brereton’s 6,400 km rail network. Officially opened on 7 March 1870, it became the inspiration for French writer Jules Verne’s book Around the World in Eighty Days. At the opening ceremony, the Viceroy Lord Mayo concluded that “it was thought desirable that, if possible, at the earliest possible moment, the whole country should be covered with a network of lines in a uniform system”.
It was the first train to have a full fledged restaurant car replete with trained butlers, chefs, cleaners and an a la carte menu to match the grandeur of a well-stocked bar! Dining cars on Mail and Express trains appeared as early as 1903, the same year in which 8-wheeled carriages running on bogies were introduced. Prior to this, all important trains were allowed sufficient halts at appointed stations, for breakfast, lunch or dinner to be had at one of the several refreshment rooms available at the platform: Refreshment Room, European; Refreshment Room, Muslim; Refreshment Room, Hindu – Vegetarian, and Refreshment Room, Hindu – Non Vegetarian.
The first steam train of 1853 covered a distance from Bombay to Thane in an hour and 53 minutes The first steam train of 1853 covered a distance from Bombay to Thane in an hour and 53 minutes (Source: Railway Archive pictures)
And of course the canteen for the ‘cattle class’ traveling in Third Class. You could have a decent meal with meal tickets in these places. The first menu was said to be a copy of that of a ‘Military Mess’. The breakfast had items like muffins, waffles, pie and choice of eggs with of course the classic English tea. Lunch had casserole and dinner had Almond Soup, which was retained in Palace of Wheels’ menu for a long time.
But it wasn’t till the Frontier Mail (renamed Golden Temple Mail post independence) that restaurant car upped its ante. Run by the Western Railway, the train was considered Rolls Royce of its time – both for its luxury (it had bedrolls, a shower, a salon and even a steam room) and the inimitable dishes it served. It was the first time that Roast Chicken was introduced to the Indian palate, soon followed by Madras spicy mutton curry and rice, the chicken cutlet (which came close to the kebabs) and the now famous Railway Mutton Curry. The iteration of which made it in to the richer food corridors of hotels like The Oberoi and Made in Punjab among others. Story goes that a drunken British officer stumbled into the kitchen looking for midnight snack. The service was over and the cooks were making food for them.
One dish was the Calcutta Mangsho Jhol. Made of farm bred chicken, Dak Bangla style, it was known for its fiery taste. Understandably, the British didn’t appreciate a burnt stomach, but was overjoyed when in an instant the dish was changed from a spicy curry to a subtle one with yogurt. Such was the impression that the officer ordered it every time he was on the train, and fondly called it the Railway Mutton Curry. And thus was born Railway Mutton Curry.
But that was not the only dish that Railway popularized. There was also the Egg Biryani that became iconic. Of course the Alam Shah khansama’s invention did undergo the railway ‘touch’, which by then was ‘subtle-izing” Indian flavours to suit the British palate. Of course the rail chefs, who were khansamas of lesser clout, did their magic by creating some addictive dishes like the railway tomato soup (a more mashed up version still exists in Rajdhani), the Bihari Kebab, the Sitaphal Ice Cream with Kalakhatta Gola. Bedmi-aloo comprises puffy deep fried puri like bread served with spicy potato curry. Bedmi aloo finally took shape of the poori aloo that is omnipresent in every station with the introduction of nagori puri, the dough which is set to rise for an hour, before being fried and served with the iconic tamarind-banana chutney.

The longstanding dream of Karimnagar people may be closer to reality now. After the Telangana State government went the extra mile in bearing expenses, the railway board reportedly agreed in principle for the new broad gauge railway line from Manoharabad to Kothapalli in Karimnagar.
The railway line was first proposed by Chief Minister KCR during his stint as Karimnagar MP in 2004 to the then UPA Government. After he took over as CM in June, KCR proposed that the TS Government would share one-third cost of construction of the railway project and providing the land free of cost besides paying annuity for the first five years after commissioning of the project. This clinched the deal with the railways.

Patna (PNBE): Concerned over frequent mishaps at unmanned gates under the East Central Railway (ECR), railways has decided to further improve safety measures at both manned and unmanned railway crossing gates under the five divisions of the zone. According to ECR GM Madhuresh Kumar, railways would tap solar energy for adequate lights at both manned and unmanned railway crossing gates in the zone.
“Railways has identified the most ‘critical unmanned gates’ in ECR. Proper lights could avert mishaps on tracks at unmanned gates during night,” GM Kumar said. Under the new plan, the ECR is likely to engage people for intensive counselling to semi-literate or illiterate people in remote areas about the need to follow safety measures while crossing unmanned railway gates, he said, adding safety awareness is a must for every person for crossing both manned and unmanned gates.

ECR GM has urged vehicle owners, drivers, motorists and pedestrians to cross unmanned gates looking at both ends of the tracks. This practice could avert major mishaps on tracks at the crossings, Kumar said.
According to sources, the number of railway crossing gates in ECR is about 2,113 of which 1,127 are manned and 986 are unmanned. Railways has already launched a drive to create mass awareness among the common people to follow safety rules at unmanned and manned gates through SMSs and ‘nukkad nataks’ (street plays). Besides, 32,000 handbills have been distributed by railways in its five divisions stressing on the need to follow safety rules while crossing railway gates, sources said.
A recent survey in railways has revealed that 40% mishaps are taking place at unmanned gates across the country accounting for 66% deaths in mishaps. Railways has so far closed 64 unmanned gates in ECR by building road overbridges or road underbridges.
