It pours misery for hundreds of train commuters every time it rains, with the lack of any shelter at the various halts towards the city’s outskirts. But those who are dependent on trains to travel to and from their workplaces say the stations lack more than just shelters; they are devoid of most basic facilities.
Umamageswaran from the Trainspotters group, who is a regular train commuter on the Byappanahalli–Hosur line, told The Hindu that

most of the stations on the line lack not just shelters but also basic facilities such as drinking water and toilets. “The platforms here don’t have any lights. Only the station master’s room has lights. It is difficult for the commuters in the evening when there is no light. We are managing by using the torchlight on our mobile phones,” he said.
Another commuter, Arun Prakash said none of these halts, including Anekal, Carmelaram, Heelalige, and Bellandur Road, has any parking facilities. “Those of us who depend on trains are forced to park wherever we find space. There is no security. There have been many instances of vehicles being stolen and petrol drained from the vehicles. There have been more than 10 such instances that have been reported on the Trainspotters group this year,” he said, and added that the members have informed the railway authorities about the same.
Commuters also lamented the lack of a proper timetable being put up at the halts. Muthukishore K., an IT professional, said at the Bellandur Road halt, a handwritten time table is pasted near the ticket counter. “Regular commuters are part of Telegram and WhatsApp groups from where they can get updates on the train timings. However, the railway authorities must think of regular commuters as well,” he said.
The group also pointed out that with no progress on track doubling between Byappanahalli and Hosur, trains have to wait for signals and this is causing delays. “We are planning to meet the South Western Railway’s Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru division, to discuss these issues,” one of the members said.
Meanwhile, senior railway officials told The Hindu that since the footfall at the halts cannot be compared with that of the regular railway stations, the Railways would not be able to provide here all the facilities available at the regular stations. The officials also said the Railway Board had given the track-doubling project a go ahead. The tenders for the same would be floated soon, they said.

Central Railway (CR) will undertake refurbishing of coaches of two major trains in the Mumbai Division: the Deccan Queen Express and the AC Double Decker Express, which run between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and Pune Junction and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus and Madgaon respectively. The trains will be upgraded under Project Utkrish.
“We are aiming to introduce the upgraded coaches of the Deccan Queen Express by August 15. We are targeting the introduction of the Double Decker coaches around Diwali,” said Divisional Railway Manager in charge of the Mumbai Division, S.K. Pankaj. CR has four more trains in other divisions: Mumbai-Amravati Express, Mumbai-Solapur Express, Nagpur Duronto and Pragati Express, that have been included in the project.

upgrade is expected to cost ₹60 lakh for each train and will contain amenities along the lines of Humsafar Express, complete with LED lighting, bio toilets and Braille signage.
“We will be adapting the design of Humsafar Express. It won’t completely replicate it as the former was built from scratch, whereas here, we will be making modifications. In addition to this, we will also have a GPS-tagged biometric attendance system of the staff on these trains,” Mr. Pankaj said.

Image for representationHIGHLIGHTSThe railway is planning to increase this train's speed from the present 130 kmph to 160 kmph.Railways may extend the operations Gatimaan Express from Jhansi to Bhopal.But this will require three engines to be attached to the train in tandem.The plan of Indian Railways to extend the operations of Gatimaan Express from Jhansi to Bhopal, running parallel to the existing Bhopal Shatabdi Express has attracted ire from the frequent Delhi-Agra route travellers who are claiming that the railways is bent on destroying a perfectly good train that was a tourist attraction right now.They claim that the railways is unable to maintain the timetable of long-haul train routes and...

the trains are suffering from poor maintenance, including malfunctioning air conditioning in most trains and if the Gatimaan Express too is extended up to Bhopal, it will face the same set of problems and will lose its reputation of being perhaps one of the very few trains on the Indian Railway network, that actually adheres to the timetable.When this issue was brought to the notice of the General Manager Central Railways M C Chauhan, he ordered his subordinate officials to immediately remedy the problem of trains running hours late than their timetable. He also ordered the engineering staff to ensure that the air conditioning on all trains is working perfectly and without any complaints.Talking to India Today, Chauhan said that the Semi-High Speed Train Gatimaan has posted some very good results and there has been a marked improvement in its occupancy, resulting in long waiting queues for this train. The railway is planning to increase this train's speed from the present 130 kmph to 160 kmph and if the test results are positive, then the train could be extended till Bhopal, but this will require three engines to be attached to the train in tandem, besides improving the quality of railway tracks past Agra. He said that the Railways is also laying the fourth line between Mathura and Palwal, which will increase the number of trains plying between Delhi and Mathura. The process of laying the third line between Mathura and Agra is also going to start very soon.Answering a question on the recent fire incident in the AP Express, he said that the firefighting equipment on all stations are being upgraded following that incident and an inquiry has been instituted into the causes of this fire.He further said that at present, 11 per cent more goods trains are running on the tracks and this figure will further improve with the activation of the dedicated freight corridor. He said that the railway officials have also been instructed to take steps to end the stray dog and monkey menace on the railway stations and to also take feedback from the frequent passengers on how to improve the facilities on the stations.Expressing his surprise at the GM's meeting, Divisional Railway Passenger Advisory Committee member Rajkumar Nagrath said that the GM should have invited the committee members to know about their feedback but instead, he held meeting with a select few local public representatives, which was unfair. He said that the suggestions made by the committee in its previous meetings are yet to be implemented and there is no hope that the current assurances of the GM will change anything in this context.
  
मथुरा जंक्शन के प्लेटफार्म संख्या सात पर रेलवे की बड़ी लापरवाही उजागर हुई। यहां खड़ी मालगाड़ी के वैगन से चार घंटे तक पेट्रोल का रिसाव होता रहा। शिकायत के बाद रेल कर्मचारी मालगाड़ी को यार्ड में ले गए और रिसाव बंद किया।शुक्रवार की सुबह करीब आठ बजे रिफाइनरी से पेट्रोलियम पदार्थ लेकर मालगाड़ी प्लेटफार्म संख्या सात पर पहुंची।
लाइन क्लियर नहीं मिलने पर उसे वहीं खड़ा करा दिया गया। इसी दौरान कुछ यात्रियों की नजर मालगाड़ी के उस वैगन पर पड़ी जिस पर पेट्रोल लिखा था। उसके नीचे से पेट्रोल तेजी से रिसकर लाइन पर फैल रहा था। पेट्रोल को इस तरह रिसता देख यात्रियों में खलबली मच गई।रेलवे अधिकारियों को इसकी सूचना दी गई। बावजूद इसके अधिकारियों ने इस पर ध्यान

नहीं दिया। करीब 12 बजे रेलवे के कैरिज एंड वैगन विभाग के कर्मचारी वहां पहुंचे।इसके बाद मालगाड़ी को पीछे कर प्लेटफार्म संख्या तीन पर ले गए। यहां तेल के रिसाव को बंद किया गया। इसके बाद ही मालगाड़ी आगे रवाना हो सकी।  मालगाड़ी के वैगन से तेल रिसाव बड़े हादसा का सबब बन सकता था, लेकिन रेलवे के अधिकारी इससे बेखबर रहे। चार घंटे तक प्लेटफार्म पर मौजूद यात्री लोगों को सचेत करते रहे।          
स्टेशन मैनेजर केल मीना ने बताया कि मालगाड़ी से तेल रिसाव की सूचना मिली थी। सी एंड डब्लू विभाग के कर्मचारी उसे तीन नंबर प्लेटफार्म पर ले गए और रिसाव को बंद कर मालगाड़ी को आगे रवाना कर दिया गया।
