Is it ok to change the livery of rajdhani exp as red with yellow bordering instead of red with grey borders as it is being used now.
Red with grey borders is OK for ac exp and other superfast ME trains..

When this train was introduced in 2002, was this the same TT? Did it do this speed with ICF coaches?
P.S. : Moderator, Please have a look, the speed shown here is wrong.

I did search the net, but was unable to see any old inaugural or old ICF pics.
If anyone knows the link, please share. Thanks.

Today (21:47)   Indian Railways drawing 4 GW solar project bid for powering locos

NEW DELHI: Indian Railways will soon run trains using solar power from arrays of photovoltaic cells deployed on both sides of select electrified tracks in 10 states, replacing 4,000 MW of coal-fired electricity in bid to become a green transporter.Government sources told TOI the Railway Board is examining the project bid document, stipulating local manufacturing for 1,200 MW of equipment under the ‘Make In India’ initiativeu, prepared by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), an entity under the renewable energy ministry. The tender, estimated to be worth Rs 16,000 crore, is expected shortly.“This is a historic step towards Indian Railways becoming a ‘net zero emitter’ by 2030. Indian Railways is by far the greenest travel option for transportation,” railways and coal minister Piyush Goyal said in response to a TOI query on Wednesday but did not give details. The sources said under the proposal, Railways will offer vacant land, often...
threatened by encroachment, on both sides of the identified tracks. The promoters will make the investment on solar panels and other equipment. The investment will be recovered from sale of power. Railways procure power at an average cost of Rs 5 per unit, while solar power will cost less.There are several firsts to the proposal. One, power from the panels will be fed through inverters and step-up transformers directly into the 25,000 Volts (25 kilo Volt or 25 kV) overhead traction system, removing the need for laying separate transmission lines.Two, the project will kick off manufacturing of 25 kV single-phase inverters which are so far limited to smaller-capacity rooftop segment. The sources said some 20 manufacturers, including ABB, Huawei, Delta and Sungrow, have expressed willingness to make such equipment if there is enough demand.Railways is estimated to save 20% of annual energy bill in the first year and 40% thereafter. Besides, the project will save Railways land from encroachment. In the first phase itself, the project will produce 6.6 billion units of power. This compares well against 16 BU (billion units) used for traction every year out of a total consumption of 18.5 billion units worth Rs 10,036 crore.Railways will consume the total output from the project and may make arrangement for energy banking with states. Under the arrangement surplus solar power can be supplied to the state utilites, which will supply equivalent power when Railways need it

These are the demands:
⏺️Intercity train between Koppal/Gadag and Bengaluru via Hosapete, Ballari and Guntakal
⏺️Running of passenger train in Hosapete - Kotturu section. Extension of Kotturu - Harihar passenger to Hosapete
⏺️New train from Mysuru to Solapur via Chitradurga, Ballari, Hosapete, Koppal, Gadag, Bagalkot, Vijayapura
of 57452 - Guntakal - Chikjajur Passenger till Mysuru - Extension must be done via Birur, Kadur, Arsikere, Hassan. By this Ballari & Chitradurga will get connectivity to Hassan. Will SCR agree for this extension?
⏺️Increase in frequency of 16229 - Mysuru - Varanasi Express to daily from bi-weekly - Is this feasible? This train takes 52 hours 40 minutes i.e., more than 2 days to complete it's journey from Mysuru to Varanasi. How many rakes would it require to make this train daily?

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...
