Train/ Station rating feature in IRI is actually very useful IMO. It helps the passengers to be properly prepared before starting their journey.
Here I am particularly focussing in the station rating system. Though the existing parameters are good and quite satisfying, I feel adding a point 'Public Address System' would be more helpful because I have seen many cases of passenger suffering due to poor announcement. If this parameter is added then a member should consider following factors before voting in this segment:
Quality and strategically positioning of the microfone- sound should be loud enough and should reach every corner of the station.
2) Quality of the announcement- voice should be clear enough and properly repeated in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
3) Timeliness of the announcement- Should be made well advance so that passengers get adequate time to reach to the platform.
4) Master Display Board- Should be placed in common places like station entrance, ticket counter, waiting area etc and properly display the platforms for trains in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
5) Electronic Platform Display:
A) Should be available in all the platforms.
B) All the boards should be properly maintained and functional- not a single board should be off and display the train number/ name and the coach number.
C) Accuracy- Boards should be in sync with the coach composition of the trains- for example the B1 of TN Express should stand perfectly besides the board marked as B1. And if GT departs from the same platform and S1 stand where B1 of TN stops, then the same display board should show S1 for GT.
So what do you think, should this 'Public Address System' be added in station rating?
**Adding a large number if tags for better visibility. Apologies if you find it disturbing. Let me know and I will remove some tags.

I think very few people follow train/station ratings
Most (including me) follow travel tips

That's could be true. Also I have the feeling that some cases the rating provided by the members are bit partial (no offence to the genuine voters)- mostly to promote home station/ favourite train or down vote the rival station/ zone/ train etc. However, still I feel that it could be an useful addition.

Yes, it often looks monotonous. Rather different liveries on diesel locos look soothing.

Suddenly got a vote today out of nowhere. Bit surprised to see since this poll was inactive for almost 2 months 😀
However, since it has crossed 75 votes, then we can review the trend.
- WAP5 'Amul' is still leading the race, nut P7 Decal is catching up fast from behind.
- WAM4 Ice Cream is on Third.
are so many options there, then there is no meaning of reviewing individual result, rather let's review it category wise.
- Though Amul is individually leading, if we add the votes against all the options (P7 Decal+ Standard White+ Duru Livery), then P7 is leading with 24 votes. Cheers for the P7 lovers. 🍻🍻🍻🍻🍺🍺🍺🍺😁😁😁😁
- P5 is at second with 22 votes.
- WAM4 the Grand Pa is doing increasingly great with 14 votes.
- WAP4 is performing measurably with 2 votes only.
So this was the latest news as of now. Will post the update again if this poll crosses 100 votes. Thanks.

Large size mirrors... but when broken, they are costly for replacing ...
Toilet Air Deodorizer, Soap Dispenser, Large Size Mirror, Curtains, LED Lamps, Toilet Occupancy Indicators ... Color changed seats, exterior viny design.... Isi facilities ke liye, jyada paisa dena hai kya??? Utter waste!!!!

rather than HS concept IR should introduce a LHB 3A rake as ACSF EXP consisting of 20-22 coaches on long Distance and dense route.. isse fare bhi normal lagega aur train ko 100% occupancy milegei
