“I had travelled by about half-a-dozen trains by 2 AC and 3 AC coaches during the last two months and the common thing I found in all these trains was the lack of Railway Protection Force (RPF) constables even during night journeys,” says Kanchumurthy Eswar, secretary, Duvvada Railway Users’ Association.
These include: from Secunderabad to Shirdi by 17064 (Ajanta Express) on February 23 in the 3 AC coach and return by 18504 Sai Nagar Shirdi to Duvvada by 3 AC on February 26. Train no. 22643 Patna Express from Visakhapatnam to Asansol by 2 AC on March 2 and returned by 3 AC on March 16. “The non-availability of RPF personnel even on long journey night journey trains is distressing. Passengers, especially
women and senior citizens, are afraid to travel in night trains due to this.
The telephone numbers of RPF constables on duty should also be displayed in the coaches so that passengers need not run from coach to coach looking for them,” Mr. Eswar wrote to the Ministry of Railways, which had sought suggestions from passengers on RPF corruption.
“I travelled by the 3 AC coach in the 22802 Chennai – Visakhapatnam Express, which arrived in Visakhapatnam at 11.40 a.m. on Sunday. When I boarded the coach, the AC was not working. My co-passengers thought that the AC would be switched on after the train started. I tweeted about the problem and an attendant came after a few hours (near Gudur) and switched on the AC,” says Aditya of Chennai.
“The train moved at a snail’s pace at NAD Junction and many of the passengers alighted. It reached the Kancharapalem outer signal around 7.15 a.m. Some of the passengers alighted there. At 11.29 a.m., I too alighted to save my time by catching an autorickshaw at the road point.”
“I immediately checked the running status of the train on my mobile and to my surprise I found that the railways had shown that the actual/expected arrival of the train at Visakhapatnam as 11.19 a.m. (with a delay of 19 minutes), even as it was at the outer signal,” he said. It was shown in the same screen below that the train departed Gopalapatnam at 11.06 a.m. and it was only 6 km to go.

नई दिल्ली (15 अप्रैल): दिल्ली से ट्रेन चली आमने सामने बर्थ पर बैठे लड़के-लड़की की आंखे चार हुईं। गाजियाबाद पहुंचते-पहुंचते प्यार हो गया, कुछ और आगे ट्रेम बढ़ी तो दोनों ने साथ-साथ जीने-मरने की सौगंध खायी और अलीगढ़ पहुंचते-पहुंचते शादी रचा ली। प्यार से शादी तक पहुंचने की इससे शॉर्ट स्टोरी आपने कहीं नहीं सुनी होगी...शायद इतनी शॉर्ट लव स्टोरी तो फिल्मों में भी नहीं देखी होगी...लेकिन यह कोई फिल्मी स्टोरी नहीं बल्कि रियल स्टोरी है। दरअसल, दिल्ली से रवाना हुई एक ट्रेन में दो अनजान युवाओं में शुरू हुई प्यार की बातें अलीगढ पहुंचते-पहुंचते एक दूसरे को हमसफर बनाने तक पहुंच गईं।
ट्रेन में बैठे इन युवक-युवती में अलीगढ पहुंचते पहुंचते प्यार ऐसा परवान चढा कि दोनों ने ट्रेन में ही
शादी कर ली। उनके इस पवित्र रिश्ते में लडके की मदद की एक महिला ने की जिसके पास सिंदूर था और एक यात्री ने दोनों की इस अनोखी शादी में पंडित की भूमिका निभाई। लडका उस समय थोड़ा डर गया जब इस शादी की खबर पूरी ट्रेन में फैल गयी और टुंडला स्टेशन पर मीडिया का जमघट लग गया। भीड़ देख दूल्हा सीट के नीचे दुबक गया, मगर लडक़ी ने उसे खींचकर उसका चेहरा मीडिया के सामने आगे कर दिया। दरअसल, फिल्मी स्टाइल की यह प्रेम कहानी पूर्वा एक्सप्रेस के एसी-3 कोच में हुई। दिल्ली से गाड़ी छूटने के बाद युवक युवती में पहले जान पहचान हुई और फिर प्यार... दोनों ने शादी करने के लिए इंतजार भी नहीं किया और तुरत-फुरत ट्रेन में ही ब्याह रचा डाला

Apr 07 2016 (09:50)   Railways to appeal for civic sense on trains

: From spic and span interiors to spotless livery and sparkling toilets, the Gatimaan Express was at its best just before its inaugural run on Tuesday morning from Delhi to Agra. By evening, on its return leg of the journey, the country's fastest train had come face to face with its biggest challenge — the Indian traveller.
While passengers couldn’t end gushing about the airline-like service on the train, many of them had contributed in ravaging its pristine state. The toilets were left muddy, the wash basins were clogged by pan masala spit and food packets and empty plastic bottles could be seen lying on the floors and seats.
that its prestigious Gatimaan Express could meet the fate of another premium train – the Mahamana Express – which was launched a few months ago and ravaged by travellers, the Northern Railway plans to start a large-scale awareness programme to ensure that passengers keep the train in a good condition.
“To ensure that a similar situation like the one seen in Mahamana Express doesn't arise, we are going to start a programme to generate awareness among passengers,” Arun Arora, Divisional Railway Manager, Delhi told The Hindu.
The Mahamana Express, between Delhi and Varanasi, which boasts of refurbished and aesthetically sleek coaches with state-of-the-art facilities such as modern toilets, controlled discharged water taps, LED lights and music systems, was launched with much fanfare in January this year. However, within a fortnight of its inaugural run, passengers had left the premium train in a mess. Not only did the wash basins get choked by betel-nut juice, even the walls were stained by it. Apart from this, some passengers even made away with the expensive fittings and furnishings from the train.
The Northern Railway doesn't want to see the Gatimaan Express going on the same track of shabbiness and hopes a sustained awareness programme would bring some behavioural change among passengers.
“The first thing we plan to do is to start making announcements about keeping the train clean through the passenger information system,” said Mr. Arora. He said that in the next step, radio jingles could be aired requesting passengers to keep the train clean. “We can also make short films on awareness that can be shown to passengers through the multimedia system available in the Gatimaan Express,” he said.

Mar 24 2016 (14:37)   Now, senior citizens to get more train berths

rahulbanerjeee^~   335 news posts
Entry# 1777819   News Entry# 262366         Tags   Past Edits
The government on Wednesday announced an increase in lower berth quota for senior citizens in trains from April 1.
There will be 80-90 seats reserved for senior citizens on every train as against 50-60 at present, government officials said.
Now, each sleeper class coach will have six lower berth seats reserved for senior citizens, female passengers above 45 years and pregnant women, up from four at present. In 3AC and 2AC classes, three lower berths will be kept reserved for senior citizens. In Rajdhani, Duronto and fully AC Express trains, four lower berths
in every coach will be reserved in 3AC class, as against three per coach that are reserved in Mail or Express trains.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had announced the proposal in the Budget 2016-17 presented last month.
Freight charges
In another move, the government also announced decreasing freight rates on dedicated merry-go-round systems – rail tracks that connect coal mines and power plants. The freight rates for transporting goods have been revised down to Rs. 47 per tonne effective April 1 from Rs. 63 per tonne at present, Railway Board member (Traffic) Mohd. Jamshed said. He said this would make transportation of goods by train cheaper than roads where Rs. 72 per tonne was charged for covering 18 km.
Mr. Jamshed said the Railways expected an additional 5 million tonne freight load as a result of this move.

Mar 02 2016 (00:25)   Indian Railways gives nod for high speed Talgo train trial on 2 routes

Entry# 1755866   News Entry# 259741         Tags   Past Edits
Indian Railway has given permission for the trial run of high speed Talgo trains on two routes, including Delhi-Mumbai section.
The trains manufactured by Spanish firm Talgo will undertake trial runs at speeds between 160 and 200 kmph on the existing tracks on two routes — a route taken by Rajdhani Express and another non-Rajdhani route.
The Railway Board has given permission for trial on two routes and Talgo will conduct the time validation trial on Delhi-Mumbai corridor soon, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
the Rajdhani route will be Delhi-Mumbai, non-Rajdhani route is yet to be decided.
Depending upon the results of the trial, the railways will consider introduction of high speed trains.
The Spanish train maker has offered to test run their lighter and faster trains free of cost.
“The permission letter to Talgo is being issued for importing the rake to India,” the official said.
The rake will be imported in knocked down condition and be assembled in India in May.
If the Talgo train runs at speeds varying between 160 and 200 kmph on the existing infrastructure without any upgrade, the travel time between Delhi and Mumbai is expected to be cut down to about 12 hours from the current 17 hours.
Besides reducing travel time, Talgo’s lighter trains consume 30 per cent less energy which will help railways reduce their power bill.
The official said barring minor changes, there will be no need for overhauling the tracks for the trial run.
Talgo trains are already running in several places in Asia and the US.
