Six more Southern Railway stations will have food plazas, with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) coming up with plans to widen its passengers' food options.
The railways had proposed to set up the food plazas first at the Trichy and Madurai stations. Officials on Saturday opened the Trichy station outlet. In the next phase, they will set up food plazas at the eastern and western ends of Tambaram station and, later, at Egmore station (at the entrance from Poonamalee High Road), Arakkonam and Tiruttani.
A senior railway official said, "The Tambaram

and Egmore food plazas have been designed outside the ticketing zone. They will have entrances from outside the station so patrons will not be limited to people entering the stations."
Many south-bound train services will originate and end at Tambaram, which will be Chennai's third railway terminal, so officials expect a large number of customers at its food plazas.
The outlet in Egmore will also target metro rail commuters, as the transit system will have a station nearby.
The Arakkonam station, a major junction for trains from Chennai to Salem, Coimbatore, Kerala and Bengaluru, also has a number of suburban train commuters who will bene fit from wider food and beverage options, officials said.
Southern Railway handed over the contracts to firms two years ago. Officials designed the agreements to allow a main contractor to bring in other popular players in the food business. It aims to cater to passengers willing to pay the market rate for food products instead of the cost of subsidised food from railway caterers, which few passengers prefer due to lack in quality.
Experts say IRCTC and Southern Railway should work out their differences to speed up work on the food plazas. They say even simple approvals now take a long time.
An expert said, "The Tambaram plaza could not be inaugurated during railway minister Suresh Prabhu's visit to Chennai early in March because it did not have an electricity connection. Such delays can be avoided if there is coordination.

Ia major IT initiative, Indian Railways is planning for an integrated software, a first-of-its-kind for the national carrier, for faster data collection and analysis.
Various functions of the railways such as passenger reservation, movement of goods trains and asset management will be brought within the ambit of the software. Named as ‘One ICT’, the software that would cost about Rs 5,000 crore over the next five years will enable data collection at sources with minimum handling and become a single source of validated and authentic information for the rail sector.
“We are working on an

integrated, comprehensive strategy to leverage IT for improvements in systems, processes, enhance efficiency,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said at the Digital Railway for Digital India conference in association with Nasscom.
To develop the software, the railways will organise a day-long conference, involving leading software companies, here tomorrow to draw the roadmap. It is likely to form a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to develop it. “ICT will cover all the aspects, including cost analysis, attendance, accounting, asset management, medical management and land management of the Railways,” Prabhu said.
The new software is expected to ensure better capacity and asset utilisation that would help the railways run more trains, carry more freight, provide better and reliable services to passengers, increase its revenues and make its operations more safe.
The public carrier has scaled up its IT expenditure from Rs 336 crore in 2016-17 to Rs 513 crore in the 2017-18 financial year.

BENGALURU: Karnataka’s luxury train Golden Chariot is all set to become affordable with the Tourism Department planning to offer a glimpse of extravagance to domestic weekend travellers. The department has opened up bookings for a two night, one day weekend package at Rs 30,000 per person.
Faced with poor patronage and mind boggling haulage charges, the department, which is offering this package during summer on an experimental basis, is hoping to extend it for a longer time. Haulage charges are what the Railways charges the operators for its infrastructure.
The package will offer

two routes on alternate weeks. One route will go from Bengaluru to Mysuru and cover Srirangapatna, while the other package will cover Hampi.
Tourism Minister Priyank Kharge, who announced this in the Legislative Council on Monday, later said the cost includes food and accommodation along with curated tours. “We wanted to offer an affordable luxury experience for the middle class and upper middle class,” he said.
KSRTC MD Kumar Pushkar said they have begun receiving enquiries and the department is keen on making this a regular affair if it works out.
The Tourism Department can well do with an increase in revenue when it comes to the Golden Chariot.
As of now, the haulage charges paid to the Railways are killing whatever little revenue is earned from the train.
The Pride of South tour is a seven-night trip and costs around Rs 1.8 lakh per person. It is run from October to March, which is when international tourists throng the country.
For the last three years, the department is running only 10 trips per year to offset losses. Last year, the train had an occupancy rate of 70 per cent. But in terms of revenue, it means little. Over nine years, the department has paid the Railways a staggering 96 per cent of its revenue as haulage charges.
For the mere 10 trips on Golden Chariot between October and March of 2016-17, the department paid the Railways a little over Rs 5 crore. This includes the Rs 2.14 crore that has to be paid to them even if there are no trips.
The department has been having talks once every two months to convince the Railways that this should be a revenue-sharing model. “But all we get is a standard response that it will be examined,” Kharge said.
“We would like to run at least 26 trips a year. If this were converted into a revenue sharing model, then we would be better placed in terms of revenue,” Pushkar said.
Other luxury trains like Deccan Odyssey run by Maharashtra and Royal Rajasthan by Rajasthan are also paying haulage charges and suffering losses. “It is only Palace on Wheels which operates on a revenue-sharing basis with the Railways and they are able to turn this into a profit. We are trying to convince the Railways to go for this as we feel we should be equal stakeholders,” he said.

CHENNAI: Launching a major initiative to improve the safety of the railway coaches, the Railways will soon begin retrofitting thousands of rakes with a mechanism that would stop them from climbing over another in the event of an accident.
The decision came in the aftermath of the Indore-Patna Express accident last November, which killed over 150 commuters, officials told Express.
The Integral Coach Factory here will completely stop manufacturing old rakes. Now it has gone for the German-designed Linke Hofmann Busch coaches which are considered much safer than conventional coaches.
But
...

there still are an estimated 40,000 coaches still in use by various railway zones.
Following that accident, the crash-worthiness of these ICF coaches was debated, as there were renewed calls to comply with the suggestion made by the Anil Kakodkar committee in 2012 to replace all coaches with safer LHB coaches.
Now, the Railway Board has taken the policy decision to retrofit Centre Buffer Coupler (CBC) on these coaches.
A coupler is a mechanism for connecting rolling stock or coaches with each other in a train. The ICF coaches have the old and unreliable screw-coupler technology, which carries the maximum risk of coaches climbing over each other during an accident. In comparison, the CBC, which absorbs high frequency forces during impact, has the inherent anti-climbing feature thereby reducing life and property damage.
“The target for next five years is to retrofit CBC on 40,000 coaches, with an average of 8,000 yearly,” Sudhanshu Mani, ICF General Manager, told Express. Instead of ICF, it will be railway carriage workshops across the country, including the one at Perambur, that would carry out the work.
“The ICF stopped making of conventional coaches with screw-coupler technology two months ago. The new LHB coaches are rolled out with CBC technology,” the General Manager said.
Listing out the other significant benefit of CBC, which enables a firm lower and upper body connection, he said this technology is easily capable of hauling longer trains of 24 coaches, which is now becoming a normal rake composition.
