At 7.05 in the morning when locomotive driver Pralhad Thakare switches on his engine at Murtizapur Junction, 600 kilometres northeast of Mumbai, he gets a token.
The token is a kind of fill-in for signals and a train communication system, which are non-existent on the 113-kilometre route between Murtizapur and Yavatmal. It also symbolises the authority and obligation for Thakare and his train guard to stop at 15 stations, issue tickets to passengers and navigate the Shakuntala Express over half-a-dozen 100-year-old bridges, through plains and hills at speeds ranging between 5 and 20 kilometres an hour.

most neglected route
The document talks of Murtizapur to Yavatmal (113 kms, 8 hrs) while the link you have provided is Murtizapur to Achalpur, so again, not able to find the authenticity of information mentioned in the news item. Who writes all such non existing information?
