Re# 1906864-36            Tags   Past Edits
Right bro! About 20 km stretch between RJN & DGG have speed restriction of around 50kmph due to ghat at Salekasa-Darekasa, but rest of track is fairly straight and level Trains running at 105-110kmph can cover remaining section (245 kms of Durg-NGP sections) in around 3 hrs at an avg speed of almost 90kmph, if given through and through green signal. But this seldom happens today due to obstruction caused by a large number of freight trains operating on the route. Even the HWH-MGS 130kmph route have its slower/ hilly patches like Gurpa-Gajhandi section where even HWH Raj too slows down to restricted speed, so it is not a big problem.
Since 410km BSP-R-Durg-NGP has already been identified for upgradation to semi
...

high speed (160kmph), it looks like the frequent mega blocks being taken in the NSP-Durg section are meant for speed upgradationworks also along with other improvements/ maintenance works.
With NGP-SC also identified for Semi High speed upgradation, we can expect 130/160kmph trains on BSP-NGP-SC route in future.

Heard 22627/68 TPJ - TEN Intercity SF Express is going to get extended to TVC shortly, in RSA with 16341/42 GUV - TVC - GUV Intercity Express. So daytime connectivity from GUV to TPJ and back is in the offing.
In the bargain, CD/TVC smartly hands over PM of one more rake to CD/TPJ!!

Thiruvananthapuram First To Introduce Portable Ramps For Differently-Abled People To Climb Into The Train:
Moved by the harrowing experience of Virali Modi, while using the services of the Indian Railways, Central Railway Station of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala has come up with an innovative idea that will surely bring a smile on the faces of physically challenged people.
Central Railway Station of Thiruvananthapuram has
...

become the first station in the country to introduce a wheelchair facility and ramp for the physically challenged people based on an official order from Southern Railways.
Virali Modi has been a paraplegic since she was 14 years old. She issued a petition of making railways differently-abled friendly. She said that she had been groped and manhandled three separate times by porters when they were helping her board the train as the Indian trains are not accessible to wheelchairs. Her petition has gathered a support of nearly 10,00,000 people, and this was brought to notice of Southern Railways by a former Divisional Railway Manager Sunil Bajpai.
The Southern Railways were very prompt to work out a solution to provide a dignified access to the less privileged.
An official letter was released on February 20 by Chief Commercial Manager Ajeet Saxena to procure portable ramps and foldable wheelchair to be put to use from 1 March.
The normal width of a wheelchair is 24 inches, but the railways are providing two foldable wheelchairs of which one has a width of 22 inches, and other has 17 inches.
The Southern Railways also has ensured the presence of lady staff to oversee the assistance of the porters. The facility cost Rs 65 and can be used making a prior request.
