Subject: Re: Longest and Shortest Train Route Distances on IR?

Date: 09 Dec 1998 04:54:41 -0500


Hello you committed railnut L(? - first name preferred) Webber - you
have done hard work ! The shortest trains in India are the likes of
Nagpur - Ajni - Nagpur passenger (4 Kms - 20 minutes) listed in the CR
timetable. These are proper public trains and no less than 5 pairs of
trains work this bone tiring journey. I always believed the longest
trains were:

1) Trivandrum Guwahaty Express
2) Kanya Kumari - Jammu Himsagar Express
3) Cochin - Guwahaty Express

But your statistics seem to changed my list !

Refering back to an article posted by Pushkar, it seems that a
single-rake day train cannot exceed an 8 hour run (one-way). Here are
two reasons I can think of why: ensuring decent dep/arrival times at
the homing station, and having sufficient time for rake maintenance.
The proposed train would be a boon to New Mumbaikers but painful for
folks from the city.

The 7 hr. Panvel-Madgaon run falls withing the range established by IR.

Let's say the train departs from Panvel around 6.30 am - it would reach
Madgaon by 1.30 pm. Even with an hour layover at Madgaon it would make
it to Panvel by 9.30 pm. Extending it to say, Kurla, would add another
1 1/2 hrs. and 8 1/2 hrs. is a little too much for a single-rake day
train (at least that's what the IR folks believe!). It can be done -
dep. Kurla 5.40 am; arr. Madgaon 2.10 pm; dep. Madgaon 2.40 pm; arr.
Kurla 11.10 pm.

Finally, we'll have a superfast train from (New)Mumbai that competes
with the Rajdhani from Delhi. I am hoping against hope that it would
have a lone halt at Ratnagiri.



There was a talk of diverting the Deccan Queen/

What's happening with the Karjat-Panvel link? During my rendezvous with

the MRSP gang at Pune (summer of '95) I recall an ex-railway official
mentioning that Panvel-Karjat would provide a shorter Mumbai-Pune route
via Kurla-Vashi-Panvel-Karjat and would provide some relief to the
over-saturated route via Thane-Kalyan.

The designation of Up and Dn. for trains between the four metropolitan
cities is fairly clear. All trains depart from Mumbai/Chennai as Dn
trains and arrive as Up trains. All trains arriving at Howrah from one
of the three trunk routes are Dn trains. As far as Delhi is concerned,
Mumbai/Chennai bound trains are Up and Howrah-bound trains are Dn.
Others that partially use these trunk lines stay consistent with the
sectional designation. Since a train leaving Mumbai is Dn. but has to
arrive at Chennai as an Up train, the change has to happen at an
intermediate point - Renigunta, as Apurva pointed out.

Here's my theory about sections that connect trunk lines: designate a
section as Up(Dn) if a majority of trains enter/leave that section as
Up(Dn) trains. As an example, all trains enter the Manmad-Daund section

from the Bhusaval side as Up trains. Most of them travel towards Pune
from Daund as Up trains as well. Hence, stamping Manmad-Daund as Up
will ensure that these trains do not have to change designations.

IMHO, the only advantage of using this nomenclature is that one can
convey the direction of a train (especially if it's on a trunk line) by
simply by stating whether it's Up or Dn. One does not to remember the
train number.

Regards,
Vijay

Subject: Interesting & Important Trains !!

Date: 09 Dec 1998 10:26:29 -0500


Hello irfca folks!

Are any important or interesting or *named* trains missing
(esp Konkan Rly) from the list below? Or ones you would like
to see details / anecdotes of ? Please post
your suggested additions on the mailing list... Your
reasons for including a train can be wholly personal :)

I have only included odd-numbered trains to keep
the list shorter. The use to be made of the info is stated in
another post of mine today... Hopefully, it will boost interest in
Indian Railways....

My favourite train is the (now downgraded class-wise) Punjab
Mail.

Thanks

L Webber

PS: Some duplicates ARE present thanks to train renumbering
- could some kind souls point these out to me? Post it here
at irfca.... it will be of great help.

Panvel seems to have crew rest area which is essential to start trains
very
early. Unless the drivers stay close to the starting station they prefer
staying in running rooms into which they check in, the previous night.
The
responsibility of waking a driver up on time then lies with the running
room staff ! In a place like Mumbai CSTM, many drivers stay in Kalyan
and
hence come to the CSTM running room earlier night to work early morning
trains like Gitanjali, Indrayani etc.
For a train working from say Kurla to Mangalore, my guess is that Konkan
Railway WDM 2 drivers must be working Kurla - Ratnagiri stretch then
another
crew from Ratnagiri to Madgaon and the third set of drivers from Madgaon
to
Mangalore.
Coming to the question of one rake not exceeding 8 hours or so per run,
how
about two rakes ? My guess is that each 2nd class day coach costs around
18
lakhs or so, hence we are not talking of a extreme capital expenditure
vs
revenue earning service. Let me have your guesstimate about the cost of
a
rake. I feel the IR needs more coach building facility, many projects
are
pending because a lack of a rake. I know ICF Chennai makes 4 regular
coaches
a day, apart from special coaches like DMUs, Rajdhani Power car etc. I
am
sure the RCF Kapurthala around 8 or 10 coaches per day. Other coach
builders
like Jessops (still around ?) and Bharat Earth Movers Ltd (BEML) also
supplement but all this in just not enough.

There are some serious tunnels to be constructed - likes of Parsik
tunnel -
the survey is complete and the land acquisition is in progress. I have
heard
(but not confirmed) that there is actually a valley between two mountain
range and this line would take advantage of following the natural
contours.
This line would have to use the Konkan Rail tracks until say little
after
Panvel and then divert to the East. What would come first the 25 Kv
electrification or this new line ?
In future the Shatabdi - Deccan Queen - Pragati would leave the main
line at
Kurla (and thereby blocking the Up through and Suburban track as they
cross
?) take a turn to the right and then take the Kurla - Chembur - Mankhurd
-
Vashi - Panvel - Karjat track thereby bypassing the Thana, Parsik and
Kalyan
Jn altogether. The entry for the this track on the Mumbai Pune track is
near
Vangni or Shelu and not exactly at Karjat.

Subject: Alternate Email Address

Date: 10 Dec 1998 00:20:27 -0500


Gang !

The VSNL (as yet the only serious ISP in India) has mercifully allowed their captive users to shorten their email addresses from <user@server.email to <user@vsnl.email. Thus we (Apurva, Shyama and little Aditi) have an alternate email address <iti@vsnl.email
Mail of both the addresses would come to the same box in the VSNL server.
Please note that the old address <iti@giaspn01.email would also work but the new one is easier to remember. I would expect the other VSNL  users on the IRFCA (Dr. Shirish Yande, Harsh Vardhan - any more ?) to shorten their addresses within a few days.

Sorry, Bapa, there's currently very little available.

I'm currently building a WDM2. If there's enough interest, I'll make
castings off
the body, and there'll be a resin kit available.

As there are no buffers on these engines, are these couplers also sprung

prevent it from popping off when the trains goes over a hill? Would

Subject: (Bad) Fish Smell Express and Other Important Trains

Date: 10 Dec 1998 07:29:21 -0500


Hello irfca folks!

Are any important or interesting or *named* trains missing
(esp Konkan Rly) from the list below? Or do any of these
trains have names that I have not entered (Bad Fish Smell EXP,
for example? ;) Matsya Gandha) Or are their ones you would like
to see details / anecdotes about? Even Nagpur-Ajni? Please post
your suggested additions here to the mailing list... Your
reasons for including a train can be wholly personal :) For any
train you are adding, pl give numbers, name if any, stops and timings.

I have only included odd-numbered trains here to keep
the list shorter

My favourite train is the (now downgraded class-wise) Punjab
Mail. Followed by 3/4 Frontier...

One other thing - I’m hoping to make the jump one morning from
the Mandore (arriving Delhi at 0615) to the Frontier (dep NDLS 0800).
Am I likely to make it i.e. how late is the Mandore Exp likely to be??

Thanks

L Webber

PS: Some duplicates ARE present thanks to train renumbering
- could some kind souls point these out to me? Post it here
at irfca.... it will be of great help.

Hi Folks,

The Up/Dn. designation for trunk lines connecting the four
metropolitan
cities is fairly clear. All trains depart from Mumbai/Chennai as Dn
trains
and arrive as Up trains. All trains arriving at Howrah/Sealdah from the
three trunk lines are Dn trains. Trains leaving Delhi towards
Mumbai/Chennai are Dn trains and towards Howrah are Up trains. Since a
Dn
train leaving Mumbai has to arrive as an Up train at Chennai, the change
needs to happen at an intermediate station - this occurs at Renigunta as
pointed out by Apurva.

For trains that partially use these trunk routes, the designation is
consistent with the section (including the direction) that the train is
in.
Hence, some of these trains would change their status as they move from
one
section to another.

Here is my theory for sections that connect these trunk lines:
designate a
particular section as Up(Dn) if a majority of trains enter/leave that
section as Up(Dn) so as to minimize changes between sections. For
example,
Manmad-Daund is Up since all trains enter this section from the Bhusaval
side as Up trains and a majority of them leave this section as Up trains
bound for Pune.

Why use such designations? Is this a better way to indicate direction
of
travel than explicity using train numbers? Do IR employees find it more
convenient to use this in their "lingo"?

Why was the new numbering system adopted to begin with if everyone
was going to stick to using Up/Dn ? In any case, I doubt that anyone
remembers train #s or Up/Dn - they just use the train name like
Kalka Mail or Frontier Mail. I think Up/Dn are only used by railway
wallahs
and that too most often by people directly in charge of traffic such as
the people up in the control room at a station.

The designation of Up and Dn. for trains between the four metropolitan
cities is fairly clear. All trains depart from Mumbai/Chennai as Dn
trains and arrive as Up trains. All trains arriving at Howrah from one
of the three trunk routes are Dn trains. As far as Delhi is concerned,
Mumbai/Chennai bound trains are Up and Howrah-bound trains are Dn.
Others that partially use these trunk lines stay consistent with the
sectional designation. Since a train leaving Mumbai is Dn. but has to
arrive at Chennai as an Up train, the change has to happen at an
intermediate point - Renigunta, as Apurva pointed out.

Here's my theory about sections that connect trunk lines: designate a
section as Up(Dn) if a majority of trains enter/leave that section as
Up(Dn) trains. As an example, all trains enter the Manmad-Daund section
from the Bhusaval side as Up trains. Most of them travel towards Pune
from Daund as Up trains as well. Hence, stamping Manmad-Daund as Up
will ensure that these trains do not have to change designations.

IMHO, the only advantage of using this nomenclature is that one can
convey the direction of a train (especially if it's on a trunk line) by
simply by stating whether it's Up or Dn. One does not to remember the
train number.

Vijay

Fascinating stuff. How is the input to your program organized? Is it a

Which

I suspect that all speeds above 120 kmph. are erroneous unless the
distances
are too short (less than 30 km.). Speeds within 100-120 kmph. are
correct
for Rajdhani/Shatabdi trains and others with distances less than 60 km.
As
Pushkar and I had discussed before, the 324 km. run for the August
Kranti
Rajdhani Exp. (106 kmph.) is the most impressive among all IR trains.
