A little has been done for DHR off late as it was also risking its heritage status.Its high time that DHR is being given highest priority with more autonomous power.It is NFRs pride and flagship project for earning a lot of currency.The NJP DHR pf is in a dilapated condition and needs serious uplift.Similarly more services from NJP in connection with Rajdhanis with online ticketing can help in proper branding of the service.

2' (2 feet) NG is referred as "N"; eg. NDM6 (Darjeeling-SGUJ-NJP and Neral-Matheran sections)
2'6" (2 feet 6 inch) NG is referred as "Z"; eg. ZDM3 (Kalka-Shimla, Pathankot - Jogindernagar etc.)
