A two-minute halt at a particular station usually requested by public representatives to railway authorities costs quite a sum — ₹7,628, which includes ₹1,763 for additional fuel cost, ₹4,401 for locomotive maintenance, ₹1,464 for earning capacity lost for a diesel locomotive. For an electric locomotive, it is slightly cheaper, working to around ₹5,451.
