A Plasser machine at rest at the Bidadi station. What's this used for..Rail Laying/maintenance? Any one! I am yet to see them live in action.
The one on the left is a Dynamic Track stabilizer. It is used to stabilize tracks by making them settle properly into the ballast around the track. This machine creates horizontal vibrations on the tracks and pushes them down at the same time. That way, the ballast ( stones) around the sleepers move about and the track and sleepers 'sink into' the ballast and thus the track is more stable.
So are they 2 different machines...Left one and Right one...I thought they are one!!

Vijayakarnataka News Paper
Manege Maari, Oorige Upakari. Idu SWR paalige 100% sathya.
SWR zone juristriction also looks funny. From Chamarajanagar upto Hubli (excl) along with branch lines of Hassan-Mangaluru, Kadur-CMGR, Birur-Talaguppa and Chikjajur-Rayadurga (excl) is with Mysore divn. How can you expect justice from a person sitting in Mysuru to know such vast area and assess their requirements? Mysuru divn should be re-aligned properly reallocating areas to Hubli and SBC divisions.
Similar case with SBC divn. From Salem outer upto Dharmavaram Outer and upto JTJ excl and upto Mysuru excl is with SBC. No justice can be expected from SBC, as they would be concentrating only about Bengaluru.
Better not to talk about Hubli divn. Though they have compact area for their operation, they are not doing any justice to the public. Neglect, neglect and more neglect.
Kannada proverb -- loosely translates like this -- Villain for own group and hero for the outer world.
Houdu sir. First n formost trains like Sangamitra etc in which hardly 1 percent kannada speaking people travel must be asked to run and maintain by their own zones. Just like NFR which runs so many trains to chennai, tvc, sc and sbc because the demand is from population based in their zone. But in places like kerla mumbai sector, Bangalore Mumbai sector or even bangalore chennai sector the movement is both sides so both zones run trains. Secondly some local person or karnataka cadre person should be involved at the highest levels of SWR especially when zone is lagging behind so much. Three like SR, politicians must force swr to run spl trains with in state and also force them to build new lines.
Exactly. No one prevented SWR to run trains from their area to Mumbai. When SWR is busy catering to TN/ KL, they forgot own public's requirements. See the way LTT-UBL and LTT-UBL via BJP TT are designed. It is a great insult for Hubli/ Belgaum/ Bijapur people that such trains are running with no use to them.
By the way, SWR is not interested in developing any area. They are happy with running trains to TN/ KL or eastern states. For Karnataka, anyway, Multiaxle Volvo buses are there!?!
