Subject: train numbers -- Konkan railway

Date: 11 Sep 1999 18:04:32 -0500



I believe Konkan Railways trains are numbered with a leading '0' digit
in the 4-digit code.

However, in a recent article on rediff.com about KR trains, they
mention the "KR 1 Dn" train (Margoa-Mangalore). Is this just sloppy
journalism or standard shorthand perhaps, for train number "0001"? Or
has KR decided to have some non-standard non-4-digit numbers as well?
There is also mention of a "KAP 1 Dn" train (Pernem-Karwar)... What
does "KAP" stand for? Do the two trains really have the same number
"1 Dn" on the same railway?? Seems like a step backward after all the
attempts at rationalizing train numbering.

Lastly, I notice that it seems to be common to prefix "KR" to Konkan
Railway train numbers (e.g., "KR 0112 Up"). Why is this? Because
KR is technically separate from the other zonal railways??

On a different topic, what is the 2- or 3-letter alphabetic carrier
identification code(s) for IR (and if different, for KR) in the travel
services world?

Subject: Re: Fog in December

Date: 11 Sep 1999 18:11:44 -0500


In early January 1983 a cold snap and fog affected transport and many
other aspects of life across the whole Gangetic plain. Airports were
closed, planes cancelled and air passengers were clamouring to get onto
already-full flights days later.
Needless to say, trains were late. Due to delays to incoming trains,
outbound trains left their starting points late as well . Not all
connections were missed however: eg while a train due to leave an
intermediate city at 09.00 may have been 6 hours late, so too was the
02.00 departure.
However, to put late trains and missed connections into perspective, the
press were reporting 400+ deaths in cities such as Delhi and Lucknow.
I'm not sure now if it was that year or a later one that there was
another result of the cold snap: water shortages. This particularly
affected Shimla. As the tempratures dropped, water froze and burst the
pipes, and as snowfalls had brought down power lines, there were
electricity and heating shortages to contend with as well. It sounded a
bleak place.

Congratulations to all those involved in posting the Morbi and Wankaner
images.
I now regret having never been there-reading about the contraction of
steam workings in the last few years, I dismissed Morbi-"what, YP on 3
bogies? Nothing interesting there."
Well, you've showed me how wrong I was.
What a fantastic station Morbi is.
Thanks for sharing them,

Subject: train names

Date: 11 Sep 1999 18:21:20 -0500



Yes, I too like the nostalgic sound of "Frontier Mail" and "Grand
Trunk Express". And then names like "Shaan-e-Punjab" (glory of
Punjab), "Flying Mail", and "Deccan Queen" have a punch that is
missing in the more prosaic names such as "A-B Super Deluxe Express"
or "X-Y Intercity Express". I also like the other colourful names
like "Himsagar" or "Shaktipunj" where there is some evidence that
whoever came up with the name spent some time on it. :-)

Thanks to Apurva and Vijay for listing out some of the interesting
train names.

What is the "Tapasvini" Express named for? "Sadbhavna"?

Hello Appu and Sarosh,
The photos were exemplary to say the very least. Sort of reminded my of
my college days, when my brother and I used to go out trainspotting
armed with primitive equipment and b/w film.
While almost all the shots are uniformly excellent, THE ULTIMATE in my
view is the one of the photographer (Sarosh?) standing next to the
track, camera in hand with the steam train blasting past. The passenger
in the first car looking towards the camera adds to the beauty.
Bravo, Gang. I've saved most of the pics on a floppy to admire again and
again.
Cheers.

Hello,
Actually, in the 80s, there were two prominent locomotive manufacturers
in India in the private sector:
1. Venkateswara Transmissions Ltd. (Ventra) (I think in Patancheru in
AP) and
2. Suri and Nayar (S&N).
Wonder what came of them. I used to see ads of these two companies quite
regularly in the Times of India and all.

Subject: Battery locomotives

Date: 12 Sep 1999 13:41:36 -0500



Dear Sri Dhanapaul,

Your contact information was forwarded by Apurva Bahadur. I am
interested
in learning about the battery locomotives you produce. Are they in use
by Indian Railways, or are they manufactured for other countries? I
presume
they are meant for use as shunters, mostly? What gauges, horsepower,
etc.?
What kind of batteries are in use (number and capacity)? What are the
wheel and bogie arrangements? What is the distance range and top speed?


Thanks in advance for any information you can provide on this.

Regards,

On Monday, 6th September 1999 the two restored WPs namely 7015/161 made a trial run. The engines were tested by the staff of Saharanpur Loco Shed of Ambala division, NR. About 40 men of this former glorious shed were recalled for the occasion. The locos ran to and fro to Sarsawa, a distance of 18 Km and pulled a 14 coach ART effortlessly. The staff of the loco shed took extensive pains in decorating the locos to their former glory for the occasion. The rake did not have air brakes so only vaccum braking could be tested.
 
 
HGS 26761(WBC 1922) makes a comeback on 19.09.99 when it makes a inaugural run after restoration from Howrah to Bandel, a distance of 40 Km. The loco is being put back on tracks by the efforts of Jayanta Ghosh, DRM Howrah Division ER. The loco will pull a four car formation for the occasion - An AC Chair Car, A Generator Car, A Pantry Car and a Brake Van. The train will depart at 0900 and return back around 1600.
 
FNRM members who may be interested in joining for the occasion can get back to me by Wednesday, September 15th.

Dear Harsh,

What great joyous news, I am quite kicked at the idea of the WP coming alive once again. Any idea how many days the boiler would last ? I guess since this loco would be used sparingly only for the POW and special rakes, another 30 - 40  years would be easily covered by these loco pairs. Please let us know how the air compressor (typically Elgi TRC 1000 ?) is driven by the steam engine. These are the only air braked steam powers on the IR. Would Saharanpur home these locos of would it be the 'heritage' steam shed at Rewari ?

Himgiri Exp. of yesteryears hauled by a WDM4 in its heydays was my old
favourite although now it is no better than `Chhakkra' (slow bullock
carts)
Punjab Mail/s. Is not even a superfast now!

Tapaswini could be for `Shabri' or `Ahilya' (just my guess). Rajiv
Gandhi
called 1991 (I think) Sadbhavna(goodwill for all) Year before he was
knocked
out next year. These trains were stated during his tenure by CK Jaffer

How interesting, the loco does not have the air compressor at all, the first coach  has a belt driven compressor from the genset engine. Only the A9 brake valve and the gauge is in the loco. Now I can see the logic in this. The locos will be based at Saharanpur for at least an year till Rewari loco shed can take BG and has a TT /T.

A bit out of context maybe but as far as I know, Zail singh never

Iam not aware that this train is called Tulsi Exp. But it goes via

Ramayana.

Maybe they plan to reroute it next year to Khajuraho! Advance planning

Mahoba, the nearest railhead for Khajuraho.

The title "Giani" (or "Learned") was accorded our former President for
his
knowledge of Sikh scriptures. I think traditionally, Sikhs with
exceptional knowledge of the scriptures have been given this honorific.
Some of us may not agree that this knowledge merits the "Giani" title,
but
I am sure that more than a few Sikhs (and others as well) would beg to
differ.

As I said, this is off-topic, so any further discussion should be kept
off-IRFCA.

Anyway, talking of trains, one of the names that I like a lot is the
"Barak Valley Express." I know that one of its terminus is Guwahati,
but
am not sure of the other. The train's name has a nice ring to it,
though.
Incidentally, which is the part of Assam known as "Barak Valley" and
what
exactly does "Barak" mean (other than the current PM of Israel, of
course)?

It is clearly shown in Lonely Planet sketch for Allahabad (and another

a little spur. Probably inactive/removed now if not in NR TT.
