dear sandeep

can u clarify what u mean by
reverse station.

officially, the work of doubling the hassan
mangalore railway is still on. the main
difficulty, i suppose, is the shortage of
funds. chandan smuggler veerappan is
quite far off from this section. his area
of operation is at least 150 kms from
hassan.

regards to all.

Dear Viraf

I would like to add one more to this list of four.

THE KANGARA VALLY RAILWAY

about which Raymond made a mention.
It is just lovely to travel on this section
in winter.

Hello,
Without going too much into the exotic, here are a few really
spectacular journeys, most of which I've only HEARD ABOUT.:
1. From Mandapam to Rameshwaram (or nearabouts); They say the tiny mg
train atop a slender bridge with the mighty sea with salt spray on
either side is something never to be forgotten.
2. The line over the ghats near Shencotta (Shengottai) and Tenkasi on
the SR.
3. The Kirandul Kottavalasa line
4. Mysore-Hassan-Mangalore, also nicknamed the emerald route or some
such.
5. Actually, while I was less than ten years old when we moved from
Durgapur to Poona, and hence stopped travelling on the East Coast line,
I used to enjoy some of the journeys on that line.
Highlights of that route are: 1)The long Godavari bridge 2) The massive
Chilka lake, which the train skirts 3) In many stretches, the train runs
parallel to the coast, but one cannot actually see the sea.The only tell
tale reminders of the sea are the cool sea breeze, and the tips of the
tall triangular sails of fishing craft. Its fascinating to see only
tiny white triangles at the skyline.
6. Notwithstanding the irritating overcrowding and constant pestering by
vendors, the Bombay-Poona line is also quite spectacular, especially in
the monsoon. Velvet-like green grass covering the hills, and the
waterfalls that spring up during the monsoons: terrific.You could get
drenched by these temporary waterfalls if you are not careful!
7. Pathankot to Jammu is also quite interesting. I've done that line in
1979, much before the terrorist nuisance.
Cheers.
Shankar

WHAT!??? No British Columbia Railway? Its' tri-weekly train between
Vancouver and Prince George is truely spectacular. Not only does it
travel through inaccessible and spectacular scenery, they still deliver
mail and newspapers to isolated communities. Plus using Budd RDCs makes
it easy to "footplate" with the crew. It is not most comfortable but IS
spectacular.

I'm am also a little annoyed that the The Adirondack Scenic was not
mentioned,(I work for them).

I, too, fail to see the logic behind choosing the above journeys. If
luxury
was one of the parameters, then
how come the Royal Orient / Palace-on-Wheels has not been featured

Folks,

As I ask these questions about the WAP1, I'm reminded of the Conrail
Cyclopedia site at
<A HREF="http://crcyc.railfan.net">http://crcyc.railfan.net</A>

It is literally a treasure chest of information for people looking for

Someday, if I get the time, maybe I can get the IRFCA site to have

i dont know about top 10 but i enjoy these following journeys:


shimla - kalka on the railcar, sitting righth in the front beside the
driver.

pune - bombay by deccan queen or even the shatabdi... even though its
clinical and the food bad, the service is good.

the ahmedabad - delhi old metre gauge line... like the feel of mg. its
quaint



i havent really travelled too many routes, so my views are limited


i loved the idea of dining cars... so romantic... i wish they werent
scrapped.

incidentally the gitanjali express used to have a library earlier...
when it
was started. one of the 3tier coaches had one doored compartment which
housed the collection. passengers had to pay a deposit to borrow books
and
magazines, and the deposit was refunded less reading charges on return.

Agree. Eating good freshly prepared food in a dining car with fresh
linen
while watching the scenery go by is a distinct feature of rail travel. I
miss
the dining cars too. If IR ever wants to have its trains to be counted
in
world class trains, IR better reintroduce real dining cars. I hope the
next
railway minister is aggressive and visionary.

hello gang

for me the top 10 or 20 or whatever number
of rail journeys will be next 10 or 20 or more
rail journeys which i will really undertake.

any rail journey any where is equally good.
on ir it is really good if u have a confirmed
seat or berth, have some good company
(friends, rail fans or even ir employees) to
chat with, get some good food to eat and
get some daylight hours of travel to hang
around the door of the carriage.

watching the country side is very enjoyable.
difficult or hilly terrain, a ghat section to boot,
well what more can u ask. just relax and
enjoy the ride. never carry any book or
paperwork.

on the technical or engineering side, one can
always keep inspecting the permanent way,
bridges, signals, ohe etc. etc. if it happens to
be a new section (meaning that it is my first
journey on that particular section or if the ride
is a repeat after a pretty long time), there is
a little bit more excitement.

a friendly or obliging loco driver can always
make it an experience to remember it for ever.
though i must admit that their numbers are
dwindling. foot plating these days is rare.

so there. each one to his or her own 10 or
20 or more top journeys. cheers.

Subject: Re: KR electrification

Date: 09 Oct 1999 09:59:46 -0500


hello rajan.

since KR is a new rail line, i suppose that
the signalling and interlocking arrangements
will all be of new variety. keyless section
working - so no dropping and collecting
keys (token) at each way side stations.
all signals will also be of electric type.
pls confirm.

communications must also be good. i know
they have optic fibre cable. but i do not
know how much of electronics they have.

the section capacity will be low as the
stations (switching or crossing points)
are few and inter station distances are
large. any kind of centralised control
(CTC) implemented in IR or KR only
gives a bird's eye view and the CTC
controller decides and passes on the
instructions to the respective station
masters as to where any crossings or
overtakings should take place. this
reduces delays (or optimises delays)
but does not increase section train
capacity.

for increasing the train capacity, one
needs to go in for sectionalised block
working. signals should be placed one
or two kms. apart with the preceeding
train setting the signals for the train
following it. it is possible to have this
kind of automatic signalling arrangement
even in a single track section. the train
capacity increases substantially if only
the direction of traffric flow is in one
direction at a time. trains can be stacked
up for say six hours in one direction and
later in the other direction. the time gap
between trains can be reduced from 30
minitues to about 5 minitues.

while this kind of unidirectional traffic
flow cannot be achieved for a local
train emu section (empty emu rakes
have to cleared which results in even
traffic flow in both the directions), it
can be easily done for a mainline.

the most important requirment for this is
a reliable power supply for the signals.
on a elecrtified section, this presents
no problems. small step down trans-
formers are used to derieve 110 v ac
power from 25 kv ohe. hence, if KR
is electrified and signalling improved
(even without actually doubling the
rail tracks), one can easily achieve
about 1.8 times the traffic of a
normal single line section. with the
limitation on the pattern of traffic
flow, of course.

regarding the pollution in tunnels,
electrification will surely solve the
problem. i hope that KR does it
fast.

Hello,
I just received the Sept 1999 issue of the IR mag, with a GT Mac in a

The GT Macs have been classed WDG/4 by the IR.

I got the mag yesterday - the service may be improving after all ! Have
you noticed
the departure from the strip type cowcatcher/ cattle guard to a solid
one piece item ?
With the the WDM 4, it was mentioned somewhere that the EMD had
forgotten to remove
the snow plough. Even the WAP 1 - 4s have the older strip type guard
while ABB and
the new DLW powers have one piece guards.

Snowplows are ordered on all new US power, regardless of where it will
be operating. Primary reason is that the plow helps shunt the vehicles
of idiot motorists out of the way, helping keep the vehicle from getting
under the loco and derailing the train. Keeps the train crew from being
injured due to the actions of fools who try to beat the train to a level
crossing.

Dining cars would be nice, but I found that having a meal handed to me
at by
seat by a bearer was part of the unique IR experience. The :( quality
of
the food, unfortunately, was also part of the experience.

I wouldn't mind a bar car or club car, but that might be a problem in
Gujarat and other states where prohibition is still in effect.

An on-board library? I would expect that on a train named in honour of
Rabindranath Tagore! Were there books in English or was the collection
only
in Bengali?

In 1988 I travelled on the L.A - Seattle "Coast Starlight" (#6 on the
list).
But my favourite North American rail journey was riding on the City of
New
Orleans from Chicago to New Orleans (and re-enacting the Arlo Guthrie
song).
This was in 1989, when Amtrak was still running "Heritage Fleet" cars on
this route, left over from the late 40s when the City of New Orleans was
the
pride of the Illinois Central. I've only travelled on VIA Rail's
Toronto-Vancouver "Canadian" (#5) as far as Sudbury, Ontario, when I was
a
student at Laurentian University (<A HREF="http://www.laurentian.ca)">http://www.laurentian.ca)</A> The bus
between
Sudbury and Toronto was almost 2 hours faster.
