**Too much privilege?**
For past few years a trend has been set by IR. A train is being given commercial Halt within a very short span at another station of the same city shortly after departing from a major station. There are countless examples throughout the country, amidst which some notable examples are Guwahati/ Kamakhya, CSTM/ Dadar, NDLS/ NZM/ Delhi Cantt, HWH/ SRC, BPL/ Habibganj, SBC/ BNC, Patna/ Rajendranagar, ADI/ Sabarmati etc. And not only ordinary Mail/ Express, many big names like Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani, Ajmer Shatabdi, Bengaluru Shatabdi, Ashram, Shram Shakti, Saraighat, North East, Vikramshila, Gitanjali, Punjab Mail, Kalka Mail, Bengaluru Mail etc are falling under this scheme in recent days.
you thing that it is justified?

TN is more exclusively for Delhi and Chennai Cities. Probably the fact that NZM is a large terminal with trains towards Agra and Kota may justify this halt. Also probably due to convenience of passengers and traffic factors , NZM is given halt.

TN TNSK APSK TL KA KASK KESK goa are special case. ordinary regular Sf like thirukural ddn mdu dhakshin need not skip MTJ AGC like stations. if traffic is huge and places have other alternaive trains for that destination then v can think of such skipping.

Thirukkural's priority is same as Sampark Kranti (APSK/TNSK, as these 3 share same slot). It can't be termed as an "ordinary regular Sf" in my opinion....

Re# 2845598-13            Tags   Past Edits
Latter as SF,
Because when you calculate the speed in section where it shares slot (NDLS-Erode), it is 60+
Isn't it enough to call it as SF?
Also, APSK/TNSK/Thirukkural have slot-sharing right from
the starting station (NZM)......but Himsagar/Navyug already cover a long distance before Delhi + too many halts before that. So not possible to compare both cases

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.
Yes. it is needed94%30
No. it is not that much needed0%0
No idea. I don't follow train/ station rating6%2

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.

So, finally captured an ALCo Diesel in #APU mode (#Auxiliary_Power_Unit) with Dr. Santulan Mahanta at Guwahati.
It is DLS LKO's WDM3D #11590 (probably the last 3D built for IR use). May be this is the first video of #APU_RUNNING in youtube !
This video is a treat to all of you guys !!
Treat for 1000+ Subscribers !!!
