COLVA: Travelling by trains in India is becoming a completely new experience for passengers as many aspects of rail transport are undergoing transformation said Union minister for railways Suresh Prabhu.
He was speaking at a function held at Margao where he inaugurated the newly upgraded Kabakaputtur station as an ‘adarsh station’ and escalators at the Bengaluru and Mysuru stations via video link .Prabhu said that Goa will benefit as a double-link track is going to be laid from Vasco to Hospet at the cost of 3000 crore which will generate employment for the locals in the form of jobs at the station.
on his issue of transformation of the railways, the minister said that his ministry is determined to make stations like airports. He said they have launched several passenger friendly amenities including facilities for differently abled travellers and even a Braille system for blind travellers.
Prabhu said that cleanliness at the railway stations has greatly improved. Citing examples, he said that in Rajastan, art galleries have been set up at stations, in Ratnagiri lifts, escalators and travelators have been installed and in Surat, essential travel services like the taxi, metro and railway have been brought under one roof. He also spoke about the newly launched e-catering system where railway travellers can order food of their choice including vegetarian, non-vegetarian, local food of the area and home cooked food. All these developments, he said, were done in partnership with the civil society wherein both, railways and society can generate benefits.
In his address South Western Railway general manager A K Gupta said that a new building is being built at Vasco with better reservation facilities and services to the passengers. He also said that more railway stations in the state including the Kulem and Sanvordem stations will be upgraded with better facilities.

Making trains sleek and fast like aeroplanes should be first priority and making rly stns like airports second.
Because journey is the picture and station is just the title sequence.
Good picture make a movie hit and not just the good title.

Also,...
