स्टेशनात लोकलचा डबा घसरला
पाच तास वाहतूक विस्कळीत
म. टा. खास प्रतिनिधी/ म.टा. वृत्तसेवा, कल्याण
मध्य रेल्वेवर सुरू असलेला खोळंब्याचा गोंधळ मंगळवारीही कायम राहिला. डोंबिवली येथे रुळांच्या क्रॉसओव्हरकडील चाप चोरण्यात आल्याने सकाळी ११.३९ च्या सुमारास लोकलचे दोन डबे स्टेशनातच घसरले. यामुळे धीम्या मार्गावरील वाहतूक पाच तास विस्कळीत झाली. दिवसभरात २१ लोकल फेऱ्या रद्द झाल्याने अन्य गाड्यांवर अधिकचा भार पडला. त्यामुळे प्रवाशांचे हाल झाले. त्यातच संध्याकाळी विजांसह आलेल्या मुसळधार पावसाने मध्य आणि हार्बरच्या गोंधळात आणखीनच भर घातली.
डोंबिवली स्टेशनच्या प्लॅटफॉर्म क्रमांक एकवरून टिटवाळ्याच्या दिशेने जाणाऱ्या लोकलमधील महिलांचा शेवटचा डबा अचानक रुळावरून घसरला. प्लॅटफॉर्मशेजारी भिंतीला धडकत हा डबा गटारात घसरला. या अपघातामागे तिथल्या क्रॉसओव्हरवरील चाप चोरल्याचे कारण सांगितले जाते. हे चाप चोरले गेल्याने डबे रुळांवरून उतरल्याचा

दावा केला जात आहे. हा डबा घसरला तेव्हा लोकलचा वेग कमी असल्यामुळे मोठी दुर्घटना टळली. या गोंधळामुळे 'मरे'ची कल्याणच्या दिशेने जाणारी वाहतूक दिवसभर विस्कळीत झाली. परिणामी दिवसभरात २१ लोकल फेऱ्या रद्द करण्यात आल्या.
'चापां'ची चोरी
'मरे'वर गेल्या काही दिवसांपासून अनेक गाड्या रुळांवरून उतरल्या आहेत. त्यात क्रॉसओव्हरवर डबा घसरत असल्याचे आढळून आले आहे. डोंबिवली येथेही क्रॉसओव्हरजवळ डबा घसरला आहे. या ठिकाणी क्रॉसओव्हरकडे असणारे चाप चोरीस गेल्याने डबे घसरल्याचे सांगितले जाते. या अपघाताची चौकशी सुरू असल्याचे रेल्वे प्रशासनाने स्पष्ट केले आहे. मात्र, रेल्वे रुळांची नियमित देखभाल होत नसल्याने हा अपघात झाल्याचा अंदाज रेल्वेच्या सूत्रांनी व्यक्त केला आहे.
पुलावर एक तास लोकल
सायंकाळी किंग्ज सर्कल आणि वडाळ्यातील रेल्वे पुलावर एक लोकल सुमारे तासभर एकाच जागीच थांबली. पुलावर लोकल अडकल्याने प्रवाशांची चांगलीच पंचाईत झाली. त्यात, रेल्वे नियंत्रण कक्षास संपर्क करूनही काहीही माहिती मिळत नसल्याने प्रवासी संतप्त झाले होते.

कृषक एक्सप्रेस के ड्राइवर ने सिग्नल जंप किया और इसके बाद ट्रेन बरौनी एक्सप्रेस से जा भिड़ी.

आलोक कुमार सीपीआरओ ने एबीपी न्यूज़ को बताया कि कमिश्नर रेलवे सेफ्टी की जांच बिठाई गई है. अभी दूसरी ट्रेनों की आवाजाही होने और ट्रैक को पूरी तरह से बहाल होने में अभी एक से डेढ़ घंटे का वक्त और लगेगा.

इस हादसे का असर दूसरे रूटों पर भी पड़ा है. बेतिया-मोतीहारी और गोरखपुर-वाराणसी जाने वाली ट्रेने रास्ते में ही फंस गई हैं. जिसमें 12 लोगों की मौत की खबर और 45 से अधिक यात्रियों के घायल होने की खबर है. 12 यात्रियों की हालत गंभीर बताई जा रही है.
घटनास्थल पर राहत और बचाव कार्य तेजी से किया जा रहा है. राज्य सरकार ने घायलों के लिए 50 हज़ार और मृत लोगों के परिवार के लिए एक लाख रूपये की घोषणा की है.
घायल लोगों को अस्पताल में भर्ती किया जा चुका है. कृषक एक्सप्रेस वाराणसी से गोरखपुर होते हुए गोंडा जाती है जबकि बरौनी एक्सप्रेस लखनऊ से गोरखपुर होते हुए बरौनी जाती है.

प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के शपथ ग्रहण 26 मई को पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के चुरेब रेलवे स्टेशन के पास गोरखधाम एक्सप्रेस के हादसे के चार माह चार दिन बाद ये दूसरा बड़ा हादसा है.

नई दिल्ली: त्योहार का सीज़न नज़दीक आते ही रेलवे टिकट के लिए लोग ने अभी से हाथ-पांव मारने शुरू कर दिए हैं. कुछ लोगों की किस्मत अच्छी थी जिन्हें टिकट मिल गया और जिन लोगों को टिकट नहीं मिल पाया है उनके लिए अब तत्काल टिकट का ही सहारा बचा है.
अगर आप भी तत्काल टिकट के ही सहारे हैं तो रेलवे आप के लिए एक गुड न्यूज़ लेकर आया है.

रेलवे ने तत्काल टिकट लेने की प्रक्रिया में थोड़ा सा बदलाव करते हुए तत्काल टिकट खरीदने वालों को थोड़ी राहत दी है. नए नियमों के तहत अब तत्काल टिकट बुकिंग करवाने वाले व्यक्ति को तत्काल टिकट रिज़र्वेशन फॉर्म के साथ एक आईडी प्रूफ की सेल्फ अटेस्टेड कॉपी लगाने अनिवार्य कर दिया

है.
अब टिकट बुकिंग के दौरान सेल्फ अटेस्टेड कॉपी के हस्ताक्षर का मिलान किया जाएगा. रेलवे ने इस नई व्यवस्था को मंगलवार से लागू कर दिया है.
रेलवे के वरिष्ठ सूत्रों के मुताबिक पश्चिम रेलवे मुख्यालय से निर्देश के बाद यह व्यवस्था की गई है. रेलवे ने सही और जरूरतंद लोगों को टिकट मिल सके इस के लिए इस नई व्यवस्था का इंतजाम किया है.इस नए नियम के बाद रेलवे रिज़र्वेशन दलालों पर रोक लगाने की तैयारी में है.
अभी तत्काल टिकट बुक कराने के लिए के लिए सिर्फ आईडी प्रूफ की फोटोकॉपी जमा करनी होती है. इसके बाद टोकन व्यवस्था के जरिए सुबह 10 से दोपहर 12 बजे तक तत्काल टिकट बुक की जाती थी.
इस बार दशहरा और दीवाली त्योहार पर यात्रियों को असुविधा ना हो इसके लिए रेलवे कोई कमी नहीं छोड़ना चाहता.

खुर्जा व रेवाड़ी से रेल कनेक्टिविटी के प्रोजेक्ट को बड़ा झटका लगा है। पलवल व फरीदाबाद के लाखों लोगों को इंटरसिटी रेल कनेक्टिविटी के लिए लंबा इंतजार करना पड़ सकता है। रेलवे बोर्ड ने पलवल से खुर्जा और पलवल से रेवाड़ी न्यू रेलवे लाइन प्रोजेक्ट को स्थगित कर दिया है। ऐसे में इन प्रोजेक्ट पर काम आगे बढ़ने की संभावनाओं पर ताला लग गया है। रेलवे अधिकारियों का कहना है कि किसी भी नई रेलवे लाइन के लिए सर्वे का काम जोनल रेलवे का होता है जबकि उस पर मंजूरी रेलवे बोर्ड द्वारा दी जाती है। ऐसे में प्रोजेक्ट को स्थगित करने का निर्णय रेलवे बोर्ड का है।
नजदीकी शहरों में इंटरसिटी रेल कनेक्टविटी बढ़ाने के लिए रेल बजट 2010- 11 व 2009- 10 में पलवल से खुर्जा वाया जेवर और पलवल से रेवाड़ी वाया भिवाड़ी नई रेल लाइन की

घोषणा की गई थी। रेल बजट में इस घोषणा के बाद फरीदाबाद व पलवल के लाखों लोगों के चेहरे खिल उठे थे। क्योंकि फरीदाबाद व पलवल से रेवाड़ी व खुर्जा के लिए सीधी रेल कनेक्टिविटी नहीं है। अगर पलवल से खुर्जा व रेवाड़ी के लिए रेल कनेक्टिविटी हो जाती है तो पलवल इंडियन रेलवे के नक्शे में जंक्शन बन जाता और शहरवासियों को बेहतर इंटरसिटी रेल कनेक्टविटी का तोहफा मिल जाता। लेकिन रेलवे बोर्ड ने पिछले 10 सालों में नई रेलवे लाइन के लिए किए गए सर्वे व स्टेटस रिपोर्ट जारी की है। जिसमें रेलवे बोर्ड ने पलवल से रेवाड़ी व पलवल से खुर्जा दोनों न्यू लाइन प्रोजेक्ट को स्थगित प्रोजेक्ट की लिस्ट में डाल दिया है। ऐसे में अब यह दोनों प्रोजेक्ट पूरी तरह ठंडे बस्ते में चले गए है। हाल फिलहाल इन प्रोजेक्ट पर किसी भी तहर का काम शुरू होने की संभावना नहीं है। रेलवे प्रवक्ता का कहना है कि रेलवे के लाइन के किसी भी प्रोजेक्ट पर अप्रूवल रेलवे बोर्ड स्तर पर दिया जाता है। जोन सिर्फ उनके आदेशों की अनुपालना करता है। रेलवे बोर्ड ने दोनों प्रोजेक्ट को फिलहाल स्थगित कर दिया है।

The rail worker clambered onto the track when there was a break in services but it took another 15 minutes to get close as the scared bird kept moving down the line.

On October 1, 1964, history was created when the Southern Railway introducted the first day-time intercity express between Chennai (then Madras) and Bangalore.Named Brindavan Express after the famous Brindavan Gardens in Mysore, the train, which was first introduced on an experimental basis, turned out to be the ideal choice for tourists.
Initially, the train started with eight conventional coaches hauled by a steam locomotive. It covered the 360km distance between Madras and Bangalore in 7.5 hours. In 1966, the train was run with diesel locos and the running time was reduced to 5.5 hours.The stops were limited to three stations -Katpadi, Jolarpettai and Bangalore Cantonment. Later, the train's running time shrank to five hours. Emboldened by passengers' response, the railways provided a complete vestibule rake with lightweight coaches and a fully reserved accommodation.

It was known for its punctuality and it is believed that travellers waiting at Madras Central station could set their watch at 7.45pm upon the arrival of Brindavan Express. “That green-yellow livery was a wonder to behold -whether you were seeing the train zoom past or you were sitting in the compartment seeing the stations pass by . There was no question of even a single unreserved passenger on board this train till the mid-1980s,“ said Sriram Karthik, another rail enthusiast.
“I have wonderful memories of travelling by it since the 1960s. Since I was a frequent traveler, Brindavan Express was my preferred train because of its promptness,“ said T Sangeetha Rao, an artist.
As Brindavan Express completes its golden jubilee and rolls into another year, rail users from Chennai and Bangalore sincerely hope the Indian Railways, which has over the years given the train a raw deal by increasing stoppages and travel time, restores this train to its original glory

the trains at stations creates a lot of anxiety among passengers. “This happens even during school hours. These boys don’t realise the implications of potential accidents. The RPF must take strict action to prevent this,” she said.
However, RPF officers usually let off students with a warning.
“When we counselled some students, who indulge in such ‘stunts’, we found that many do not attend schools and instead, spend time roaming outside,” the officer said.
T. Ananthanarayanan, headmaster of P.S. High School – North said he regularly counsels students about the hazards of footboard travel.
“I don’t allow the students to go out during lunch. We also tell the parents to educate their wards about safe travel on MRTS trains,” he said.
M. Sairam of Velachery suggested that the identity cards of students who travel on footboards should be confiscated and their parents and school authorities should be summoned to collect them.
