A Memorable visit to RCF, Kapurthala.
I apologise firstly to all of you for late reporting as i'm on constant travel. I can't post pics right now, so requesting other visitors to put pics and their experiences here.
1st Part
Necessity is the mother of invention is a well known saying. But sometimes passion delivers a lot in inventing new ways of living life.
Here some of us felt the urge to have some fun together and what better a place can be than a one raiway-related. Mr. PK Venkatramani was kind enough to take the responsibility of conducting this visit and his endeavour bore fruit as SBI, Kapurthala Branch informed him of a confirmed visit to RCF. So accordingly many of us put their wishes, but destiny always has the last word. After many permutations and combinations, the lucky few viz pkvenkatramani sir, pramodh sir, tejas, pradeep aka minti sir, Anand sir, Jayaraj sir, Shashank, Saikat sir, Joydeep, Ms Narayanan sir and Satinath Mondal and myself made there way to the 'Mecca of IR coaches' Railway Coach Factory, Kapurthala, on the 17th of October, 2013. Notable absentees were Dipyaman Basu, Wrik aka Souvik, Arkya Chatterjee, Sabyasachi Ghosh, Soumitra Chawathe, SVIyer, Zahaib, MNSudarshan and Kanishk aka Koushik who may have missed something very special.Someof us met at Delhi with Tejas, Shasank and Anand sir joining us at JRC. The people from Delhi boarded the Dhauadhar Express on 16th and reached Jalandhar the next morning. After getting refreshed we met the trio from Amritsar and got into a 4 coached Firozpur DEMU. As i have previously said destiny has its own way, we were astounded to find that a team from SBI, Kapurthala branch was there to welcome us at the station. We were still more awestruck as three AC cars were found waiting outside the station to take us through the factory. Once reaching the premises we got down from the car to find the GM and the Chief Project Manager of RCF greeting us. Feeling royal at this gesture, we got into the administrative building where we were shown the model township of RCF. A guide demonstrated the model and we were informed a lot about its geographical whereabouts. We were then warmly welcomed into the Main Conference Hall by the GM and other officials. Feeling too corporate, we took our seats around the round table. The GM formally welcomed us and he greeted everyone of us personally. He expressed his sheer happiness at our visit and added that he found it extremely unique that a group of 'rail loving people' have come here as every one visiting is either for commercial purpose or for administrative reasons. We were treated with coffee and a lot of light refreshments. He then showed us a video of the evolution of RCF which was very much interesting and colourful. Next we had a one to one discussion session with the GM where we all put forward several questions and he replied to them at his best. One notable question was from Pramodh sir regarding the same livery of LHB coaches. He solicited for a unique livery for Rajdhani coaches (the present red and grey) to be there and a separate livery for all other LHB coaches. The GM told that he would take up this matter personally and also took it down as a serious suggestion. Providing charging points at all the side berths and bays was another suggestion from our side which was noted down by him. After this we were to visit the workshops....

A visit to the SIGNALS & TELECOMMUNICATION workshop at Podanur was adequate recompense for the proposed admin meet at Coimbatore which ultimately proved to be a non-starter .
The 2-hour visit to the S&T workshop was arranged by admin Jayaraj Charan from CBE whp leveraged his alumni connections to make it a reality . Accompanying him on 12th October were myself and admin Dr .Nazeer .
But before I come to the business end of the trip let me dwell on a few trivia associated with our visit . Many
of the staff members there were friends of Mr. Jayaraj . But what surptised me most was the large number of employees who came to greet Dr . Nazeer , by virtue of being or having been his patients .
And although AYUDHA PUJA was slated to be performed only on 13th October , a FESTIVE MOOD was evident . The song and dance in each of the departments made SHOPFLOORS look more like DANCEFLOORS . At times we got the impressoin of being in a DISCO :)

This 3 phase AC EMU powered by the Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor [IGBT] technology developed in partnership with multinational firm Bombardier was that it converted the kinetic energy generated during the braking of the train into electric energy that was then directed back to the energy grid according to Mr.Sridhar, Chief Electrical Engineer, ICF.

Over whelming response to Science express.
The no. of visitors to the science express witnessed a quantum jump on the 2nd day. On day 1, there were 7,154 visitors from 47 schools and 480 general visitors. On day 2, there were 11,389 visitors from 70 schools and 680 general visitors.
The no. of visitors who visited the kid's zone and joy of science laboratory and no. of teachers who attended the teachers orientation programme was also encouraging.

Members of the SRMU staged a protest at the CBE Jn,. demanding to fill the vacancies in the Mechanical dept. and Electrical dept. in the SA div. of SR.
The staff strength should be increased in accordance with the introduction of new trains. The existing staff feel overburdened which finally results in the deterioration of quality.The workers already struggling to service the designated trains are getting burdened with new train introduced.

The GM of SR Mr.Rakesh Misra said the demand of CBE people for a daily over night express train from CBE to SBC was genuine as there was enough passenger traffic and all SBC bound passengers from CBE could not be accommodated in the passing-through trains because of quota constraints.
The GM told DRM,SA Div,.to pursue the proposal for introduction of an ONT in the CBE-SBC-CBE section.

The Madras Railway Company set up this railway station in the year 1863 and it served as the terminal for the region for long until before the Coimbatore Jn took over the position.
Podanur, which was once one of the Divisional Head Quarters of SR, lost it's status when the HQ's was shifted to Olavakkode near Palakkad. The sizable Anglo-Indian descendants
still residing in this suburbs reminds the times when the Railway station and locality was a favourable area for the British in those days.

Bottleneck to go once works at PTJ Jn are over.
The yard re-modelling works at the cost of Rs 15 crore would help increasing the speed of trains on Irugur-Coinbatore- Podanur section. This will save 20 min. and help few more trains via CBE. More over one more platform would come up at PTJ Jn.

Land Acquisition of PTJ-POY GC stretch had been over come and now the wait was for funds. The GM itself personally appealed to RB to sanction funds to complete the PTJ-POY GC at the earliest in order to restore the rail connectivity of Western TN with Southern districts of TN.
Palani-Pollachi GC was in its final stage and likely to be opened by 2014 after CRS inspection and POY-PGT GC by March 2014.
