Expo aims at creating awareness about climate change
‘Science Express Climate Action Special’ (SECAS), the mobile exhibition train with 16 coaches that was launched on February 17 by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, is stationed at Kothavalasa railway station on Saturday.
“The state-of-the-art exhibition aboard the SECAS aims at creating awareness about climate change and its impact among various sections of the society, especially students,” said T. Nitin, in-charge of the science special train. Of the 16 coaches, 13 have exhibits. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) has put up exhibition

in eight coaches which showcases information with regard to case studies, climate impacts, adaptation activities, mitigation and solutions and the Department of Science and Technology and the Department Biotechnology put up themes like wild life and nature and conservation work being carried out by different research institutions across the nation in coaches 9, 10, and 11.
Kids zone
Children can indulge in fun-filled activities at Kids zone in coach 12. Joy of Science, a laboratory for students of 6-10th standard to understand concepts in environment, science and mathematics besides space for conducting orientation classes for teachers, is in coach 13.
In each coach, a volunteer was seen explaining climate changes, green house effect, stem cells, urban water management, how and why dinosaurs perished, among other issues. “Finally, adaptation to climate change is the key to survival,” they told students from various schools.
M. Bhagya Lakshmi, a student of class 10 in A.P. Model School at Addannapalem, Kothavalasa mandal, told The Hindu that the exhibits on display in the train were educative and nice to learn the impact of climate change.
The mobile exhibition train is open from 10 a.m. to p.m. every day. It will leave for Gudivada on May 23.

The base fare of Tejas trains will be 20% more than those of the Shatabdi Express service. The first Tejas Express will be flagged off from Mumbai to Goa on Monday by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.
Unlike on Shatabdi Express, on-board catering is an option. If a passenger opt for it, catering charge will be added to the fare.
The super-fast surcharge, reservation fee and catering charges will be levied separately, a railway ministry official said. The executive class fare between Mumbai and Goa has been fixed at Rs. 2,540 without food and

Rs. 2,940 with food. The chair car fare is Rs. 1,850 with food and Rs. 1,220 without food. The Shatabdi fare in executive class is Rs. 2,390 and Rs. 1,185 in chair car.
Better facilities
Since the train is equipped with better facilities, the fare will be slightly higher than normal mail and express service, Mr. Prabhu said while inspecting the Tejas coaches here on Friday.
Equipped with CCTV cameras besides smoke and fire detection system, the 19-coach train will have bio-vacuum toilets and GPS-based passenger information display system. Each seat will have a LED screen with a touch control system.

एनबीटी ब्यूरो, लखनऊ : कई दिनों से लखनऊ से कानपुर के बीच रद चल रही वरुणा एक्सप्रेस रविवार से कानपुर तक चलने लगेगी। इससे वाराणसी से कानपुर व कानपुर से वाराणसी जाने वाले यात्रियों को खासी राहत मिलेगी। दूसरी ओर शनिवार को बाराबंकी से लखनऊ व लखनऊ से बाराबंकी जाने वाली मेमू कैंसल कर दिए जाने से सैकड़ों दैनिक यात्री खासे परेशान हुए।

MUMBAI: The future of the Mumbai-Madgaon double-decker hangs in balance with the impending introduction of hi-speed Tejas Express to Goa.
While Railways sources indicated that the AC double-decker service to Goa, which is in operation for more than a year, may be discontinued, Central Railway (CR) officials declined to comment on Friday. Tejas Express will be flagged off from Mumbai for Goa on Monday.
The 11085 Mumbai LTT-Madgaon double decker Express leave around 5.30am. Sources said that the Tejas Express is likely to leave Mumbai at 5.30am. It will reach Madgaon by 1.30

pm, sources said.
The present Jan Shatabdi ferries passengers to Goa in 8 hours and 25 minutes and the Tejas Express will be faster in comparison.
The superfast train, which is expected to travel at speeds up to 130 kmph, will have several modern facilities on board like LCD TV, wi-fi and tea/coffee vending machines. It will be equipped with a slew of on-board facilities including redesigned seats, CCTV cameras, automatic doors, personalized infotainment systems and an advanced fire-alarm system, and have cuisine curated by celebrity chefs. The new rake for Tejas will arrive in Mumbai by Saturday morning. "On Monday, railway minister Suresh Prabhu will also rename train no. 11003/11004 Dadar-Sawantwadi- Dadar RajyaRani Express as Tutari Express," said a Konkan Railway official.
Free wi-fi will be introduced at Khed, Chiplum, Ratnagiri, Kudal and Sawantwadi among other stations from Sunday.

NDORE: Special trains to Patna and Sarairohilla have registered over 120 per cent occupancy forcing railway officials to contemplate on running them as regular trains.

same after this period, the railways may consider them to run as regular train service," they said. These two trains were introduced with a view to cater to the long pending demands of passengers to provide an extra train service to Patna and Delhi.
As per the figures available with the railways, the occupancy level in Weekly Indore-Patna summer special train (09305) has increased by 45 per cent in just one month. The train was started on April 9 and that time its occupancy was recorded at 123 per cent. Similarly, Indore-Sarairohilla's occupancy is also being recorded between 120 to 129 percent. The railways started this train from April 30. This has also generated total revenue of more than Rs.96.5 lakh. "The demand is higher for places like Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Bihar. And the waiting list in many trains to these destinations has also crossed 100 mark," said officials.

IR is really minting money on these special fare trains at 120% occupancy and with 150% of normal fare! It amounts to 80% extra revenue collection from these trains over a normal fare train with 100% occupancy.
The money which otherwise going into the pocket of touts is now going to IR coffers!!

Tejas group trains were earlier touted as fastest trains on IR network with modernl pax amenities over and above the premium SF Shatabdi trains and accordingly christened as Tejas.
But at the time of implementation, it is found that these trains are no faster than Shatabdies, but have better aesthetics, more pax amenities & higher fare. So the name of such trains should be something like "Rajas", "Adunik", "Suvidha" or so instead of "Tejas".

At the entrance of the Heritage Transport Museum, wafts of heat hit you in two waves; one coming from the summer sun, and the other, from the burning coal that fuels a locomotive engine.
The locomotive is a 1953 Jung Steam Engine, built by a German manufacturer named Arnold Jung Locomotive Works.
Collector and owner of the Heritage Transport Museum, Tarun Thakral, managed to acquire the engine after a four-year-long process.

engine was being stored in a defunct condition for 20 years by the Rohtas Industries, in Bihar’s Dehri-On-Sone region. In October 2016, the locomotive was brought to the museum in Gurgaon and given a new lease of life.

Most of them are on pedestals outside various stations and they’re very reluctant to give old steam engines away to private entrepreneurs or private museums,” says Thakral, who managed to get his hands on not only the 1953 Jung, but also the 1921 Kerr Stuart steam engine.
