The first Rajdhani Express of IR, 12301 Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express a.k.a. the 'Kolkata Rajdhani' completed her 55 Glorious Years of Service in 3rd March, 2024 (3rd March, 1969 - 3rd March, 2024). The eventful day being a Sunday, it became a recurrence of the Golden Jubilee day in 2019. Therefore, 12305 Up Howrah Rajdhani Exp via Patna got the honor in place of 12301 Up via Gaya !! We, the rail enthusiasts, organised a small celebration which included light decorations on the locomotive & rake and a cake cutting ceremony.

could have done even better but due to certain constraints we managed to achieve only this much. Thanks to all my fellow railfans who worked really hard. We are grateful to the officials of Eastern Railway who made the process much smoother despite their busy schedules specially DGM (G) Sir & Sr. DCM Sir / HWH. Also, thanks to all the contributors & all those who supported us wholeheartedly.

The wonderful train board was designed by our fellow rail enthusiast, Sahil Kamdi from Nagpur.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
