The Threatened Forest Train Of Mala

YDM4 6626 enters the loop with 52222 Mailani - Pilibhit Morning Passenger into Mala Station . The Mala Forest is a part of the Pilibhit National Park [ Pilibhit Tiger Reserve ]. The Mala station is situated in the dense forest of Mala range and is full of wide variety of Flora and Fauna including India's National Animal , The Royal Bengal Tiger , Leopard , Bears and others to name a few. The Forest area is one of the few patches of Dense Forest remainingin Uttar Pradesh , A State which has the highest Population in the country. This Railway Line was due to be closed for Gauge Conversion to Broad Gauge on 15'th November 2017 but due to some issues with the Company to whom the Project had been allocated , It's conversion has been Postponed for a few months. The Railways has kept a Speed Limit of around 50 Kmph towards Mailani for upto 7 kms, In order to preserve the WildLife and to keep a check on Wild-Life related accidents.

The Train Parked on the Left is Basically left to be broken up and to be sold as scrap since , this line will be closing down soon so all the old stock of coaches and Locomotives will be scrapped. It's a Pity that a few years back this section of Indian Railways starting from Lucknow stretched all the way upto Bareilly and far beyond till Jaipur Via Kasganj Mathura Achnera has been reduced to a mere 70 kms stretch barring the Shahjahanpur- Pilibhit Stretch and the Mailani - Nepalganj Stretch has all been closed and converted to Broad Gauge under the Uni-Gauge System. Legendary Trains Like Gokul Express , Nainital Express stormed past this station only till 2 years back but with times changing Thick and Fast It's time to move on and cherish the Memories left. With the Gauge conversion of this stretch and the Lucknow Aishbagh To Mailani Stretch soon to be completed , We may get to see the Legendary Nainital Express Back on Tracks and resume it's Journey once again but only time will tell when it happens.

Diesel vs Electric Tue, 31 Oct 2017 06:52:49 -0700

Diesel vs Electric

The battle for survival begins. Whom do you root for? Who do you think would win?!

For the REALLY uninitiated, the Minister of Railways have decided to totally phase out diesel locomotives from Indian Railways, and has kept the target for total electrification by 2021.

While this has been projected as an environmentally friendly move, the truth is far from that. It is common knowledge that most of India's electrical power is produced by coal-run thermal power plants (stands at sixty percent presently) and the pollutants thrown into the atmosphere are no less polluting than the directly visible pollution from the diesel locomotives. In addition to that, power plants tend to pollute the area where they are located at, whereas there is no localised air pollution when it comes to diesel locomotives.

Also, diesel locomotives produce a much better tractive effort than their electric counterparts and that is one of the reasons almost entire freight traffic in the US is run on diesel traction.

In my opinion, this is just a phase; a politically motivated hogwash to be honest. Diesels are here to stay, and they will.
