Jan 30 (11:09)   Gujarat: Vaghai-Billimora heritage train to chug on as Western Railway revokes decision to scrap its services

Going back on its decision, the Western Railway has decided to not stop the services of three trains, including the 107-year-old narrow gauge heritage train between Vaghai and Billimora, in Gujarat permanently.
Other two narrow gauge trains run between Miyagam, Choranda and Malsar, and Choranda junction and Moti Karal.
On December 10, 2020, Mudit Chandra, Executive Director (Freight Marketting) of the Ministry of Railways, issued a letter to the Western Railway General Manager, ordering permanent closure of 11 “uneconomic branch lines” and narrow gauge sections of the Western Railway, including three from Gujarat.

On Friday, Chandra issued another letter to the same official, a copy of which is with The Indian Express, stating, “Notification for permanent closure of uneconomic branch lines and narrow gauge sections had been issued from Board, vide letter under reference (i). However, in view letter under reference (iii) of Heritage Directorate of Railway Board, and subsequent correspondence from Western Railway, the matter has been reviewed in consultations of Finance Directorate of Railway board. Consequently it has been decided to keep three heritage lines viz., Miyagam-Choranda-Malsar, Choranda Junction-Moti Karal and Billimora Junction-Vaghai… the notification issued vide letter, will not be applicable on the above mentioned three heritage lines. This issue is in consultation with the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.”
Anu Tyagi, Railway Area Manager of Valsad railway station, said, “We have received the letter from our head office… Now the narrow gauge heritage train connecting Billimora to Vaghai will not be stopped. Once the Covid situation turns normal and after we get instructions from our head office, we will resume the heritage train service.”
The Vaghai-Billimora train, which started in 1913, was a vestige of Gaekwad dynasty who ruled the princely state of Baroda. Tribal people from interior Dangs commute by this train regularly. The train covers a distance of 63 kilometres.
Local people as well as both Congress and BJP leaders had made representations to the Western Railway authorities urging them not to permanently close the heritage train service.
Social worker Bipin Rajput said, “We are happy about the decision. The victory is of the people of Dangs. We are thankful to the Ministry of Railways, who took the train’s heritage value into consideration.”

Railways to electrify all broad gauge routes by December 2023, bets on renewable energy; details
Indian Railways bets big on electrification and renewable energy!
The Indian Railways network will be completely electrified soon as Piyush Goyal-led Railway Ministry has planned to electrify the remaining broad gauge routes on the network by the month of December 2023. Recently, in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal shared that the Railway Ministry has planned to source around 1000 megawatt (MW) of solar power as part of its solar mission and around 200 megawatt of wind power based on the techno-commercial assessment. Out of this power, around 204.82 megawatt, which includes 101.42 MW of solar and 103.4 MW of wind power, has already been set up on the network. Solar and wind power are renewable energy resources, which is being utilized by the Indian Railways network.
The planning for the electrification of the remaining broad gauge routes of Indian Railways network is as follows:
In the year 2019-2020, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2020-2021, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2021-2022, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2022-2023, a target of electrifying 6,5000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2023-2024 (till the month of December 2023), a target of electrifying 4,310 km of broad gauge route has been planned
Hence, Indian Railways has planned to electrify a total of 28,810 km of broad gauge route.
Additionally, in a bid to reduce the fuel burden of the Indian Railways network, the Railway Ministry has planned to install land based solar power plants across the country, over the unutilized railway land. This will be done to meet the energy requirements for both, non-traction as well as traction purposes.

ટ્રેનોનું ભારણ ઘટવાની સાથે દિલ્હી, ઉ. ભારત માટે વધુ એક રૂટ મળી શકે
Sep 27, 2019, 08:17 AM IST
અમદાવાદ: અમદાવાદ સ્ટેશન પર ટ્રેનોનું ભારણ વધુ હોવાથી રેલવે દ્વારા સાબરમતી સ્ટેશનને ટર્મિનસ તરીકે વિકસિત કરવામાં આવી રહ્યું છે. હવે અમદાવાદ સ્ટેશન પર બુલેટ ટ્રેન પ્રોજેક્ટની કામગીરી શરૂ કરાતા પ્લેટફોર્મ નંબર 10, 11 અને 12 એમ ત્રણ પ્લેટફોર્મ બંધ કરાયા છે. આ સ્થિતિમાં
જો રેલવે દ્વારા અસારવા યાર્ડમાં નવી પીટ લાઈન નાખી મેઈન્ટેનન્સ સુવિધા શરૂ કરવામાં આવે તો અસારવાથી દિલ્હી તરફ જવા માટે વધુ એક રૂટ મળી શકે છે. વધુમાં આ રૂટ પર અંતર ઓછુ હોવાથી પેસેન્જરોનો 2થી 3 કલાકનો સમય બચે તેમ છે.
અસારવાથી હિંમતનગર થઈ ઉદયપુરના રસ્તે ટ્રેનોનું સંચાલન થઇ શકે
અસારવા યાર્ડમાં નવી પીટ લાઈન નાખી ટ્રેનોના મેઇન્ટેનન્સની સુવિધા ઉપલબ્ધ કરાવવામાં આવે તો અમદાવાદને વધુ એક ટર્મિનસ મળી શકે છે. હાલ હિંમતનગર સુધી બ્રોડગેજની કામગીરી પૂર્ણ છે. આ લાઈન શરૂ થતાં અસારવાથી હિંમતનગર થઈ ઉદયપુરના રસ્તે ટ્રેનોનું સંચાલન શરૂ કરી શકાય છે. જેમાં ઉદયપુરથી ચિત્તોડગઢ કોટા થઈ દિલ્હી માટે તેમજ ઉદયપુરથી અજમેર જયપુર થઈ દિલ્હી માટે બે નવા રૂટ મળી શકે છે. આ નવો રૂટ હાલના દિલ્હી રૂટ કરતા લગભગ 150 કિલોમીટર ટૂંકો છે.
ઉચ્ચ અધિકારીઓ સમક્ષ રજૂઆત કરાશે
અમદાવાદ (પશ્ચિમ), સંસદ સભ્ય, ડો. કિરીટ સોલંકીએ જણાવ્યુ હતું કે, અસારવા યાર્ડમાં પૂરતી જગ્યા હોવાથી તેને ટર્મિનસ તરીકે વિકસાવવા પશ્ચિમ રેલવેના જનરલ મેનેજર સહિત અન્ય ઉચ્ચ અધિકારીઓ સમક્ષ રજૂઆત કરવામાં આવશે. આ સુવિધા વિકસાવવાથી વિસ્તારનો વિકાસ થવાની સાથે દિલ્હી તેમજ ઉત્તર ભારત તરફ જતી ટ્રેનો માટે વધુ વિકલ્પ મળશે.
