Well....

The only loo I know big enough to take a Bradshaw and not get blocked is
on
an Indian train.

Was that where you lost it?

I haven't heard of a specialist book on this.....but you could
pick up any good book on the fundamentals of perspective and
object drawing. After that, it is just adding constant practice
to observation of detail.

Hello,

Things are getting MUCH more interesting if
we find someone who e.g. builds railway models
while at the toilets, because this activity obviously
requires some kind of special devices be installed there ...

Hi,To all at Irfca,
Whilst on the international railway There is a Train from India
(OldDelhi)
LAHORE. MY relatives travelled from Karachi to Lahore by Pakistani
Train
and from Lahore they came by Samjhauta Express or the INDO - PAK
EXPRESS.
They told me that the train has a 1st AC, 2nd Ac and 1st class
compartment
apart from regular sleeper class compartments. The train is hauled by a
Tughlakabad WDM 2. I have personally seen the train on Old Delhi
Station
ready to depart. I got very emotional on the platform just seeing the
International train and the people boarding it.

The passengers travelling by this train are checked for their passport
and
visas at Attari the last station in India and then they cross over to
Pakistan. If I get a visa I am sure to travel by this train one day to
Pakistan just for the sake of travel by Samjhauta express. It is just
euphoric travelling by this train and wish no Govt. of India would ever
stop this service. My relatives who came to India a fortnight ago told
me
that there is also a pantry car in which Sardarjis from Amritsar are the
contractors... and excellent food is served.

Please someone who has more info about this train can surely give me
more
info. I am very sentimental about this train as once upon a time this
train used to go to a part of India.

Earlier my grand father told me that the Erstwhile Frontier Mail used
to
go right upto Peshawar in the days of the Raj. Imagine the Frontier
Mail
with a steam hauled climbing the rough mountains on way to Peshawar.

I am totally for international trains, to neighbouring countries;
possibly
another Indo Pak train from Mumbai to Peshawar, imagine the goodwill it
will spread amongst the 2 countries.

Do write more if you have some more info.

I second that ! Cheers to such positive thoughts, the Mumbai - Amritsar
-
Atari - Wagah - Lahore is totally possible, given the political will. I
too
like Poras will travel this journey for the sake of doing something so
beautiful and symbolic.I have heard that it is almost possible to go
from
Pakistan westwards into Iran, the line is broken for 30 Kms but then
onwards
the line is continous till Europe.

Subject: Southern Railway (SR) to introduce Auxiliary Warning System

Date: 23 Jun 1998 16:41:03 -0500


Courtesy: The Hindu
CHENNAI, June 23.

A device, known as auxiliary warning system (AWS) is to be
introduced on the Chennai Beach and Gummidipoondi section of
railways for improving the passenger safety.

The main advantage of the system, stated to be the first of its
kind in Southern Railway, is that trains would automatically
stop if drivers jump the red signal by mistake.

At present, the system is available only in the suburban
services in Mumbai. The Railway Board has sanctioned Rs. 6.45
crores for the scheme.

Sources said that there had been a tremendous increase in the
traffic in the Chennai-Gummidipoondi suburban section in the
past few years. In the absence of dedicated lines for the
suburban services in the section, both the main line trains and
EMU services had to run on the same track resulting in reduction
of ``headway,'' the time-gap between two successive trains.
Drivers operating on the section were always under pressure, as
they had to stick to schedule. Even a loss of a few minutes
would adversely affect the schedule and lead to dislocation of
traffic.

There had been instances of drivers passing the ``danger
signal'' inadvertently, resulting in accidents. Under the new
system, while one gadget will be fitted between the tracks near
the signals, another will be placed below the locos or EMU
motorcars. Both the gadgets will be tuned to a particular
frequency.

In case of red signal, the frequency of the equipment on the
track will automatically change. If the train crosses the danger
signal, the mismatch in frequency between the equipment on the
track and the loco will automatically apply breaks and bring the
train to a halt. There will be a monitor in the loco as well as
in the EMU motor coach to alert drivers when they ``jump the
signal.''

The system was found to be extremely successful in the Mumbai
suburban service and so Railways had decided to introduce the
system in all congested routes in a phased manner to improve
safety, the sources said.

JAMMU, June 23


Eight carriages of a Delhi-bound passenger train were derailed when a
bomb exploded in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, police said.

Reports said that eight people were seriously injured in the blast
at 9.20 p.m.

Police said relief vehicles and officials rushed to the accident site
near Ria close to Vijaipur, about 33 km southwest of the state's
winter capital Jammu.

Police said the Shalimar Express to New Delhi left Jammu station at
9 p.m. The blast occurred on a day when Home Minister Lal Krishna
Advani
promised a series of measures to crack down on militant unrest in
Jammu and Kashmir.

Advani was visiting Doda to commiserate with the families of 25
members of a Hindu wedding group massacred by militants in the remote
and mountainous district on Friday.

None has claimed responsibility for the massacre.

About time too. Let us hope introduction is speedy all over the

I suppose the MG alignment was completely reworked after the TV line
closed: the NG line ran along what is now Sevoke Road in Siliguri, while
the MG line from Siliguri Jn today runs straight towards the hills,
turns
right and runs along them up to Sevoke. Even today, the approach to
Sevoke by road is a spectacular sight: the railway bridge across the
Teesta is dwarfed by the hills that suddenly rise up on both sides of
the river.

Fascinating history, Dr Walker.
