CALCUTTA, Sept 19. - The time machine rolled back to the
world of George Stevenson as
Eastern Railway today flagged off a heritage train pulled by
a 77 year-old steam engine.

The Millennium Express - as the train has been named - took
people this morning to the times when
steam was the only driving force.

There was nostalgia in the air. The train puffed out of
Howrah Station at 9.45 sharp. The destination
was Tribeni in Hooghly. The initial enthusiasm of the riders
faded gradually, because the train took
three long hours to cover 48 km.

At the flagging off ceremony, the Eastern Railway's general
manager, Mr S Ramanathan, cut a cake
that looked like the engine. "The emphasis is not on the
train or its interiors but on the steam engine
that made its maiden journey from Howrah to Hooghly on 15
August, 1854", he said.

From November, this 77-year-old locomotive will run once a
month to keep alive the spectacle of
the engine pulling a train and emitting smoke and steam with
rhythmic sound.

Mr Ashwini Lohani, director, Union tourism ministry, said: "I
hope this train will run as successfully
as the Fairy Queen, which plies between Delhi and Alwar".

The railway authorities want to tie up with the state tourism
department to capture more tourists.

And the GM S. Ramanathan happens to be our dear Vijay's uncle. So I

Only presence of booking offices in non railway but otherwise important
areas.
The many booking offices in a large city leads to tickets such as Deccan
Gymkhana (in Pune) - Jammu Tawi.

But is does - my family and the office does all the booking via an agent
for
all classes. It is official, the name of the agent (Abhay travels) is
even
mentioned behind the the CR tt. These are authorized on behalf of the
railways
to book tickets and collect a service charge as per a fixed norm (Rs. 15
per
2nd class ticket, more for a higher class tick) . What is surprising is
the
confidence that these agent can tell about the availability or lack of
availability of a ticket on a certain day or train when we fill the
request
form. It is almost as if they own the railways. Obviously they have
cornered a
quota of the tickets and they are quite sure about their role. I still
believe
that an agent would stand in the line instead of us and that is what his
job
is, but the connections that these guys have are apparently deeper and
murkier
than that.
Maybe Rajan (who works in the travel agent's office) can give us a clear
idea
of how a travel agent - particularly for the IR functions.

Interesting conjecture, Appu, but not true :-) I am really not a steam
buff
although
steam locos did provide variety on IR. They would give elevated status
to
diesel-hauled
trains and if I happened to be on of them and spotted a steam-hauled
express, that would
give me a twisted sense of pride!! Let me quickly add that steam has a
certain romance to it
and I can understand the passion that you steam buffs have!!

Minor correction: This the the Calcutta Circular Railway. The line does
NOT go to BidhanNagar Road from Ultadanga Road. It goes to DumDum Jn
from Ultadanga Road. Ultadanga Road to DumDum Jn should be about 3 or
4 km.

While doing some cleaning chores, I discovered a 1980 Eastern Railway

Yes you are right, and I know the source of this confusion also. Long
time ago
it used to be:

Sealdah, Ultadanga Road, Dum Dum.

Then when the circular railway segment opened initally I believe it was
from
Ultadanga Rd (Lower Level) to Princep Ghat. Soon thereafter the name of
the
Ultadanga Road on the Sealdah - Dum Dum segment was changed to
Bidhannagagr
Road. So it became:

Sealdah, Bidhannagar Road, Dum Dum.

Meanwhile, it took the railways and WB government several years to evict
squatters from the right of way connecting Ulatadanga Road to Dum Dum.
Eventually this was achieved and the segment of circular railway was
extended to
Dum Dum.

Now for the alignment of tracks. The Sealdah - Dum Dum segment runs on
an
embankment throughout. The Kankurgacchi Chord from the Sealdah South
section
becomes parallel to it a little towards Sealdah near Bidhannagar Road. I
don't
know where exactly they are connected though. The circular railway comes
in
almost perpendicular to the Sealdah - Dum Dum alignment, a little to the
North
(away from Sealdah) of Bidhannagar Road, and the circular railway
Ultadanga Road
station is located near here. The circular railway passes under the
Sealdah -
Dum Dum line and then rises up onto the embankment to join it around Dum
Dum
South cabin or thereabout.

THERE NEVER WAS ANY MG LINK BETWEEN TIRUCHI PALAKKARAI
