May 26 2017 (10:19)   Chennai-Trichy double line: Trains may hit 100kmph; travel time 4 hrs

Entry# 2293602   News Entry# 303618         Tags   Past Edits
Passengers travelling from Chennai Egmore to Trichy could soon see their travel time slashed by up to 33% following the completion of doubling along the stretch by Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL), Indian Railways' engineering arm, on May 23 with the commissioning of the 20-km second line between Valadi and Trichy . Trains on the Chennai-Tri chy section can now touch a maximum speed of 100kmph and, with stoppages, the average speed can reach up to 75kmph, an official said. “Trains can complete the 334km journey in 4 hours,“ he said. Currently, trains take 5 to 7 hours to complete the journey . The popular overnight train Rockfort Express takes 6:30 hours, while Pandian Express takes 6:30 hours, while Pandian Express takes 5:25 hours. A senior official in the railways' operations department confirmed that top-level officials are discussing proposals to reduce running time by at least 20 to 30 minutes immediately...

.“Changes in running time are usually made in a timetable revised in October. But because of the completion of doubling, we might revise it within a month,“ the official said.
The drop in running time has been pos sible because line doubling has eliminated a number of stations at which trains have to wait as another train passes through.Some stretches only had a single line. An official in the Trichy division said the maximum section speed of 100kmph can be achieved gradually over a period of 3 to 4 months, according to directions of the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS).Due to added line capacity with the completion of doubling, officials now have the scope to increase the number of services by at least 50% to 100%, officials said.

Might be.. Not sure exactly how long it will take. VM-CGL is kind of slow, may be 100 or 90 is MPS i guess. While CGL-VM it is 110 i guess.

May 28 2017 (22:53)   Tejas Express: Railways to provide Rs 30 headphones after 337 stolen | mumbai news | Hindustan Times

A total of 337 headphones distributed to passengers for the entertainment systems on-board the Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express were stolen in just four round trips after it debuted last Monday, a railway source said.
For its fifth trip on Saturday from CST, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) provided low-cost headphones.
The IRCTC spokesperson did not confirm the number of missing headphones, but said that it had bought 1,000 headphones, each costing Rs30

Indian Railway had introduced the systems to provide a flight-like travel experience for passengers.
The train has 990 seats across 13 passenger coaches, including an executive coach that has more comfortable seats with neck and leg rests.
The system has preloaded games, movies and songs, besides FM channels. For the first four trips, headphones of a leading brand were handed over to passengers before the start of the journey.
However, after the first trip itself, the train came back with fewer headphones, damaged infotainment screens and waste strewn all over.
The cost of each headphone was around Rs200. The new ones will cost Rs30 each, a source said.
“Many passengers do not return the headphones before alighting and take those with them thinking that its cost was included in their ticket fare,”said an attendant on the train.
He said the on-board staff are now afraid that IRCTC might recover the cost of missing headphones from their salary.
Without catering services, a Tejas Express chair-car and executive-car ticket between Mumbai and Goa costs Rs 1,285 and Rs2,585, respectively.
According to an IRCTC source, from Friday’s trip, instead of distributing headphones to the passengers, staffers issued the headphones to the passengers after noting down their seat details and collected it from them.
It considerably brought down the number of missing headphones, the source said.
Meanwhile, many of the 990 infotainment screens were also found damaged.
According to officials, passengers damaged the buttons of three screens by pressing hard on them with an object. There were scratches on many screens.
Many passengers who travelled on the train on Friday complained about inedible food and poor WiFi.
Travellers who chose the non-vegetarian meal were served an omelette with rusk, juice, butter and jam.
Vegetarians, who were served upma with rusk, a cupcake, tea, juice, butter and jam, also said the meal did not meet their expectations.
In addition, WiFi was only available to passengers travelling in the executive chair car, and even they complained about weak signals and connection issues.

I guess, main reason govt is investing for this bridge and rail connection is, for movement of Army and their vehicles. Railway can help movement of our army much faster than road transport..

Cunning SR 😈😈😈😈😈😈. Gave the rake to SWR and escaped maintenance. All maintenance on SWR head. No wonder they say no trains can be introduced citing constraints. Even Island - should be maintained by SR only. Hardly runs 200 Kms in SWR.
Same way got a train to Nagercoil, thanks to SCR.
MV and TN Express gave to MYS division after split and now MYS suffering with no pitlines for Karnataka trains. Those two trains are for Tamil migrants, no use for KA.

and SCR are bhakras serving SR. 😕😕😕😕😕
