I have question. Pardon me if I sound too dumb. I wish to know what system does IR use at their PRS counters to reserve tickets? It looks like a DOS based user interface. Is that true? Or do they use some other technology on front end?

I don't know if it's a VT terminal or DOS. Both look so similar. Can someone throw more light on this?

Going by Wikipedia, the UI is written in C and Fortran (both obsolete). Why don't they consider upgrading to a better UI application/system?

C is used majorly,only in Linux kernels. I've not seen any other major program using C. However, the larger question is the exact technology they use, and why do they not upgrade it?

Durgapur is a Great Station for high speed skips(Thanks to this flyover too: /blog/post/597014) while traveling in SF Trains. Videographers should make sure to take videos of their train skipping DGR asap or they may land with an Incomplete video like mine: click here ... ;-p

Vindhyachal Railway Station is also a very prime place for spotting high speed trains, mostly during night. I'd spotted as many as 7 Rajdhanis from 1:00 hrs. to 5:30 hrs. (I could identify them as Rajdhanis only because of their red livery. Even the windows couldn't be distinguished from one another).

coupling photo of ndls-trivandrum rajdhani at sindhudurg station, awaiting crossing by trivandrum-ndls rajdhani. i was in mandovi express waiting for these 2 crossings.
why there are 6 coupling tubes in rajdhani (as seen in photo) & just 2 in regular express trains?

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
