Condition of Railways in Tanzania, East Africa.
All tracks fenced properly. No trespassing issues. No animal and human trespassing there. Every RF should watch this video.
Trains and stations are
neatly maintained and No issue of "Bolo Zuban Kesari" there. (I am not taking about Bullet trains or European trains here).

Our IR is even much older than Tanzanian Railways, however still we have to improve ourselves a lot.
We people still believing in the words of politicians and many Railway officers have Politically oriented railway unions like SRMU, DREU, NRMU, etc etc. Also everywhere bringing caste and religion card everywhere even in IR. That's why development schemes on IR were delayed a lot.

Still no crowd management, non automated doors, ticketless travelling etc etc and so on in IR. Although Vande Bharat system introduced by IR is appreciable, still passengers complaining of leg space issues in Chair car coaches by some RFs. Also recently Lucknow Dehradun VB was occupied illegally by UR passengers. The crowd management is pretty worst here all due to increased population levels and demand of Shramik and Mazdoor log all over the country and also unequal share of income. Still our Per Capita Income is not upto mark although we have Adanis, Ambanis etc although Gross Domestic Product is increasing a lot.

I am seeing everywhere this "North South divide" often because there is an common stereotype is often North based passengers travel and occupy all seats and causing overcrowding. But same it is happening in South also well. All due to regional politicians whom want to secure vote bank but doing nothing to this solution.

We fining fines from Ticketless travellers, but ever IR thinked about installing Ticketing system like in Metro stations? Or able to take tickets even boarding train in case of UR trains although GPS won't allow to do so in UTS app.

We want to improve current safety measures,cleanliness and prevention of trespassing first here. Also an standard rule should be there for all. Then after improving we can think about Bullet trains, high speed trains etc.

PS: I am not an supporter of any political party, political agenda here.

For your views....

The way Tanzania developed its railway is good. We should appreciate them first. Rather than disagreeing That I first agree we need to improve IR. as mentioned by other persons we cant compare scale of things here. The way railways done in a country depend on demography and geography. Even though US has 2L kms of tracks they not even run 1% of IR run in any day and We have countries which have High speed trains like Japan China France Germany. Countries like Swiss follows excellent examples for public transit. India is very diverse we should aknowledge that and we must understand our weakness and plan accordingly. If India can pave highways which competes EU and US , Railway development is also possible. We should acknowledge the time and pattern needed before we fall for blaming games.

Thanks Agree
Agree with you most of the points are valid and need to be addressed in future when so called hype of Amrit Bharat Stations. People here can't digest the truth and ground reality but it's fact.

I'm curious how long the "140 crore population" excuse will remain valid, given that China, with a similar population, has a railway system vastly superior to ours. In comparison, Tanzania, a very poor country with a high fertility rate and a persistent AIDS epidemic—has a railway system that outperforms ours. Clearly, if Tanzania's railway system is better than ours, there is a significant issue with our own railway system.

Population is not problem. That is what I put the way Tanzania development deserves appreciation. Indian Railways serves totally different purposes than developed Tanzania. The complexity encounted by IR has more dimension than Tanzania. Socially, Econmically, Culturally India is much more diverse. Compared to China and many countries, Main advantage of India is population density which is very much helping towards railway development. The problems of IR can be solvable by employing suffecient number of people and developing proper infrastructure (Not painting and constructing things in the name of amrit bharat). India has lot of Railway potential which is untapped. How the things will be proceeded is politically influenced. Every country suffers it. Japan has two uncompatible Electric frequency that makes End to End rail in single journey impossible. China has 60% area which are barren and fit for nothing. Same with gaints like Russia,Australia, Kazak, Canada, US. These countries population...
density doesnt make railways as good public transit options. Russia, China, India, France, Germany, Japan, Swiss, Italy atleast made railway as one of the prime public transit modes. We should appreciate those and decisions of railways depends on political decision so to make politically right decision, People should mandate politicians to make best possible moves. As long as that prevails, IR will be good inspite of its flaws. If that not the case ,Railways wont serve people like US. then no body wants rail as option. it will be lost. Already India spending lot in highways, if IR fails, that amount need to be quadrapled. The sole losers will be fellow people of India.
