#EkDinKaSultan - Part 2 (The Signature)
It all started with the Rajdhani; then followed Shatabdi nineteen years later. After that it's like a floodgate got opened. Jan Shatabdi, Sampark Kranti, Garib Rath, Suvidha, Duronto, Yuva, Double Decker, Kaviguru, Rajya Rani, Vivek, Maha Mana, Gatimaan, Tejas, Humsafar, Uday, Antyadaya - all came like a procession. Whoever has become rail minister in last 20- 25 years, has left a signature by these trains.

    Over the last few days, there have been concerns expressed by many members that politics are being discussed. Well, with 90% of the trains NOT running over the last 3 months, there is not much rail-fanning happening!!! People have to discuss something. Mature political discussions are allowed in the Topics section,...
