**Call of the day**
A nature of civilization is that it always spreads, exploring new places. So as it happens in our country too. Many new ventures like Industrialization, Education, Health, Habilitation etc are turning many places important day after day. As a result their railheads need to be refurbished too, but that is happening in a relatively slower pace.
Here I will list some places which are very important in recent times, but their rail stations have remained relatively smaller. Though many major trains stop at these stations, infrastructures have a scope

I wonder what mode would they select for RRTS. I read somewhere that they are planning for something that can get average of 100kmph. Moreover, the point is that any such new RRTS system that would be set up would be costlier as compared to existing system. So, such system would take some time to achieve initial success.
However, I didnot get the ratiionale behind Alwar extension when we have trains in that sector and roadways is also there.

Superb poll. Everyone should vote
#IncredibleIndia
India is a vast country. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, From Gujarat to Arunachal- the vastness and diversity is a very rare example among all the countries in the whole world. And many jewels of places are scattered all over this whole vast country. Obviously they are places of tourist interest and fortunately IR offers connectivity to most of them. But people's choice also differes in this vast and diverse country.
So as a tourist what would be your favourite destination?

It all depends on the mood actually. Sometimes when the feeling comes to go and explore mountainous regions then hill station is the place where I go. Sometimes when the feeling comes to explore the vast seas then Puri, Vizag, Digha is the destination I choose. In the end, it all comes down to the mood.

100% agree, but also there is an automatic first choice everyone has... Right? So what's your automatic first choice?

Sea-Coastal area. Since I have been there so many times(with parents, alone etc) that I actually love sitting in the beach staring at the waves and the vast blue heaven.

Which train has better chances of getting confirmation for journey of Balasore to Bhubaneswar (nearly 200 km):
Date of journey is 08 July 2018.
Class is SL.
Trains are :
12839 Hwh Mas Mail
...

(PQWL19/16).
22502 NTSK SBC SF (RLWL 39/29).
18047 Amaravti Express (GNWL 72/53).
I am keeping 12837 Hwh Puri SF as last option because its timings are not suiting my requirements.

Re# 3204299-7            Tags   Past Edits
For the time being we can say it to b an offlink... But ample chances for these trains to get WAP-7s of any of the SER sheds once they get enough of these locos.. However on my 10day visit to my hometown I have spotted 12815 twice with WAP-7s ... once with SRC and another time with TATA... 12876 once with SRC... Many ECoR RFs are also spotting WAP-7s with these 2 trains frequently... So that makes me anticipate that soon the loco links of 12815/16, 12875/76 may get upgraded to P7 of SRC/TATA..
