129 YEARS OF CST BUILDING
Designed by F.W. Stevens, a consulting architect, the construction of Great Indian Peninsula Railway Offices building started in May 1878 and completed in 1888. o­n Queen’s Jubilee Day in 1887, the building was named as Victoria Terminus. Later in 1996 it was renamed as Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. In 2004, UNESCO has enlisted as World Heritage Site for its architectural splendour. From December 2012, CST building was opened for public viewing o­n working days.
During Centenary celebrations of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Building, a postal stamp was

released. In 2013, when the building celebrated quascicentennial (125 years) anniversary, a special postal cover was released o­n the occasion. This building has been selected as 10 iconic places in India for its tourist potential in 2016.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (earlier Victoria Terminus) was constructed at a cost of Rs.16.13 lakh and is designed in Gothic style adapted to suit Indian context. It is a C shaped building planned symmetrically about the east west axis. The crowning point of this building is the central dome with a colossal 16 feet 6 inchs high Statue symbolising Progress. It is reported to be the first octogonal ribbed masanry dome adapted to this gothic style building.

The station was constructed with 6 platforms at a cost of Rs.10.4 lakh and in 1929, the first remodelling took place to have 13 platforms. Further modifications were done to the yard and the station had two more platforms thus making it 15 platforms in 1994. Today it has 18 platforms with a spacious east side entry as well.

* Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus Mumbai (earlier Bombay Victoria Terminus) railway station building is Taj Mahal of Indian Railway.
* Both are UNESCO world heritage sites
* While Taj Mahal was constructed in 1632 by a Mughal ruler in memory of his queen Mumtaz Mahal, the CSTM Station was constructed in 1887 by the colonial rulers to commemorate the golden jubilee of their queen Victoria.

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.

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.

a Mumbai-Goa journey, passengers have to shell out Rs1,185 for chair car and Rs2,485 for executive class.
Capable of plying at 200 kmph speed, Tejas Express has several unique features, which comprises automatically operated doors, stink-free vaccuum bio-toilets, infotainment system for every seat, reading lights, bells for calling attendants and onboard WiFi.
On May 22, railway minister Suresh Prabhu flagged off the train. Although WiFi, food and Infotainment system has disappointed the passengers a bit, its popularity seems to be unaffected.
Currently, the train runs five days a week, except Monday and Thursday. It will run thrice a week from June 10 . The running time of the train will also increase by couple of hours from the existing 8.30 hours.
Railway officials are hopeful Tejas Express will go housefull because the passengers would love to seen beautiful nature of Konkan through panoramic windows of the train.

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.

तेजस एक्सप्रेस के शुरुआती चार चक्करों में गायब हुए 337 हेडफोन के बाद इंडियन रेलवे केटरिंग एंड टूरिज़्म कॉरपोरेशन (आईआरसीटीसी) ने अहम फैसला लिया है। आईआरसीटीसी ने इस नुकसान से निपटने के लिए 30 रुपए वाले सस्ते हेडफोन ट्रेन में मुहैया कराए हैं।
शनिवार को छत्रपति शिवाजी टर्मिनस से मुंबई-गोवा के बीच चलने वाली तेजस एक्सप्रेस के पांचवें चक्कर के लिए ऐसा किया है।आईआरसीटीसी ने गायब हुए हेडफोन्स की संख्या तो नहीं बताई, लेकिन इतना जरूर कहा कि 30 रुपये वाले 1000 हेडफोन खरीदे गए हैं। रेलवे ने अपने यात्रियों को सफर के दौरान यह व्यवस्था फ्लाइट जैसा अनुभव कराने के लिए दी है।

एक्सप्रेस की 13 यात्री बोगियों में कुल 990 सीटें हैं। इसमें खास बोगी (एग्ज़िक्यूटिव कोच) भी शामिल है, जिसकी सीटों पर लेटने के दौरान गले और पैरों को काफी सुकून मिलता है। यही नहीं, एफएम के अलावा इसमें गेम, फिल्में और गाने देखने के लिए भी उचित बंदोबस्त हैं। यात्रा की शुरुआत में यात्रियों को इन सबका आनंद लेने के लिए नामी कंपनियों के हेडफोन दिए जा रहे थे।
हालांकि, पहले चक्कर में कुछ ही हेडफोन वापस मिले, इंफोटेनमेंट स्क्रीन के साथ भी छेड़छाड़ हुई थी और ट्रेन में कूड़ा-कचरा भी पाया गया। गायब हुए प्रत्येक हेडफोन की कीमत 200 रुपये बताई जा रही है। जबकि नए वाले हेडफोन 30 रुपए के हैं।
ट्रेन में एक अटेंडेंट से जब इस बारे में पूछताछ की गई तो पता चला, “कई यात्री हेडफोन नहीं लौटा कर गए। वे उन्हें यह सोच कर ले गए कि उसके पैसे उनकी टिकट में शामिल होंगे। बोर्ड स्टाफ भी इस बात से घबराया हुआ है कि आईआरसीटीसी कहीं उनकी तनख्वाह में से गायब हुए हेडफोन्स की कीमत न वसूले।
मुंबई-गोवा के बीच चलने वाली इस ट्रेन की चेयर कार बोगी का किराया 1,285 रुपए और एग्ज़िक्यूटिव बोगी का किराया 2,585 रुपए है (केटरिंग सेवाओं के बगैर)।

वर्ल्ड क्लास सुविधाओं से लैस है तेजस एक्सप्रेस• मुंबई मिरर : मुंबई से गोवा के बीच सोमवार को सुपर फास्ट तेजस एक्सप्रेस की शुरुआत से रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु बेहद खुश हैं। हालांकि, उन्हें रेलवे अधिकारियों के एक उलझन के बारे में जानकारी नहीं है। दरअसल, ये रेलवे अफसर उन खबरों से परेशान हैं, जिनके मुताबिक, ट्रेन से पहली बार सफर करने के बाद बहुत सारे यात्रियों ने हेडफोन वापस लौटाना उचित नहीं समझा। हेडफोन की इस ‘चोरी’ का असर बुधवार को ट्रेन के गोवा से मुंबई के सफर पर नजर आया। बहुत सारे यात्रियों ने शिकायत की कि उन्हें एलईडी स्क्रीन पर कार्यक्रम का आनंद उठाने के लिए हेडफोन नहीं मिले। ट्रेन की शुरुआत होने से पहले ही इसके शीशों को नुकसान पहुंचाने की बात सामने आ चुकी है।

New Delhi, May 26: The Indian Railways has now been mulling to provide low-quality headphones after some of the headphones went missing from the Tejas Express on its maiden journey from Delhi to Mumbai on May 22. According to the reports, around 8-10 headphones had gone missing out of a total of 1000 that were provided to the passengers in the Tejas Express. While there were reports of the headphones being stolen from the train on its maiden journey, the passengers reportedly had complaints about the combination of the food served in Tejas Express.
According to the reports, the passengers have also made complaints about the cleanliness in the train. The reports also have it that the passengers who opted for non-vegetarian

food were served omlette with rusk, juice, butter and jam. “We know of omlette-bread or pav combination, but have never heard of omlette-toast. How can senior citizens have rusk with omlette,” asked Ramesh Nevalkar, reported Hindustan Times.
Some even had issues about the quantity of food and the time at which it was served. “The quantity is not much. We were told it would be a meal. Also, the breakfast was served at 8.30am, which is too late considering some had to leave home at 3am to board the train,” said a passenger, reports HT.
“We may provide low-cost headphone because the present ones cost around Rs 200-300. However, the voice quality may not be great,” said DK Sharma, Central Railway general manager.
He also said that the authorities have also been thinking of some other options that will make sure that the good quality headphones are not stolen from the Tejas Express and also confirmed that there are no plans to withdraw headphones from the train for now. Sharma also appealed to passengers to not steal or damage the train as it will only impact the onboard services in future.

The semi-high speed train Tejas Express ran at 110 kmph on its inaugural run against the railways’ claim of 160 kmph.
Tejas Express, a semi-high speed train, is supposed to run at 200 kmph. But, on its inaugural run between Mumbai to Karmali (Goa), it touched a maximum speed of 110 kmph.
A few days before it was flagged off by railway minister Suresh Prabhu on May 22, Indian Railways claimed that the train can run at a speed of 160 kmph despite constraints related to rail tracks.

Member (traffic), railway board, Mohd. Jamshed said it was found that the train is running within permissible limit of 110 kmph due to reasons related to tracks in the Konkan railway which is known for its rugged terrain.

“Speed of a train depends on rolling stocks and fixed infrastructure i.e. tracks. Konkan railway’s track passes through several tunnels and its topography and movement pattern is quite different. We have to ensure protection around tunnels due to frequent landslides. Because of these reasons, the train is allowed to run at 110 kmph. The speed would be increased to 120 kmph after a few months,” Jamshed said.

The railway board member said the newly unveiled Mumbai-Karmali Tejas Express took almost same time as its New Delhi-Bhopal Shatabdi which is country’s longest Shatabdi service. It takes eight hours and 25 minutes to cover 706 km from Delhi to Bhopal.
“Tejas took eight hours and 30 minutes to cover a distance of 703 km between Mumbai and Karmali, which is fair enough,” he told Governance Now.

He elaborated that even the speed of Bhopal Shatabdi varies from station to station because of various factors. “Till Agra, Bhopal Shatabdi runs at 140 kmph and its speed gets reduced to 120 kmph after crossing Bina station. Speed depends on tracks, different conditions and sections,” he said.

Jamshed said that the railways is working to ensure its coaches and locomotives run at a speed of 200 kmph.

When asked why Tejas’s fare is 20 percent higher than other Shatabdis, he said every coach of Tejas costs around Rs 3.45 crore against an LHB coach which costs Rs 2.43 crore. “We are providing passengers with sophisticated facilities which they won’t get in the roadways. A bus takes over 14 hours to reach Goa from Mumbai which is uncomfortable too. But Tejas offers a comfortable ride to people,” he said.

* Actual magnitude of the operating speed of trains, their avg speed and the journey times has really become a vexed issue. Announcement of Member (traffic), RB that BPL Shatabdi does NDLS-AGC at max speed of 140kmph (against the earlier reports of 150kmph which made it speed record holder prior to introduction of Gatimaan) only adds to confusion.
-
* When BPL Shatabdi was introduced in late 1980s, it was reported that its speed was 140kmph-NDLS-AGC, 120kmph(upto JHS) and and only 110 kmph beyond that along with many upto 70kmph speed restrictions in

BPL-Bina stretch. Still the train NDLS-BPL was done in 7:40-7:50 hrs only.
* 30 years later and after track/ signalling upgradation (NDLS-AGC-from 140 to 150/160kmph, AGC-JHS 120-130, JHS-BINA from 110-130 & BINA-BPL from 110-120, and removal of Temp. Speed restrictions, still the (NDLS-HBJ) Shatabdi take 8:30 minutes or 8:15 hrs for NDLS-BPL run i.e. 30 minutes more, even if 4 additional brief halts (Mathura, Dholpur, Morena, Lalitpur) are taken into account, the train is taking about 5-10 minutes more in-spite of increased speed!
-
* Similarly it was reported and perceived that max speed of DDR-MAO JS is 120kmph and CSTM-Karmali-Tejas shall operate at 130kmph and now reports that Member (traffic), RB announcing that Tejas speed was actually restricted to just 110kmph during the run due to (poor?) conditions of KR track. Further, it was reported yesterday that the train departed CSTM about an hour late on inaugural run and reached destination 15 minutes before time.
* after running at just 110kmph instead of scheduled speed of 130kmph, if Tejs could "make up" 1 hrs, then if operated at 130 kmph it could probably reduce the journey time by 2 hrs.
* CSTM-Karmali actual distance is just 552kms and inflated chargeable distance may be 703 kms as stated by Member (traffic), so Tejas doing just 552 kms(@65kmph) in 8:30 hrs is actually much slower than BPL shatabdi doing 710km in 8:25/8:30 hrs (@84kmph) and not the equally fast as reported.
* A premium train operating at 130kmph and on top priority on the route is expected to give an avg speed of about 75kmph. CSTM-HWH-Duronto give 75kmph avg speed inspite of operating at 110kmph only.

Agree with you in all aspects but just an angle to look at is the increase in traffic on such routes. In the context of BPL Shatabdi, the train might not find room to run freely (despite high speeds) for a long time due to the intensity of traffic congestion than what was in the 1980s.
To explain it further, Mumbai-Pune trains can be taken as an example..earlier in 90s Mumbai-Pune Deccan queen used to cover the distance in lesser time compared to now, due to added traffic congestion which wasn't prevailing during erstwhile British era, hence even speed upgradations wouldn't make a much difference as route capacity needs to be enhanced first. This case is applicable to most routes on

Come October, and the Indian Railways will offer reservation on demand on select long-distance routes- and that too without leveling any extra charge to passengers.
To begin with, Railways are planning to introduce the idea of reservation on demand on sectors like Mumbai-
New Delhi, Lucknow-New Delhi, Mumbai-Howrah, and Chennai-New Delhi. If successful, the scheme would be implemented pan-India for all premier, mail and express trains by 2020.
While

railway traffic has increased 20 times since Independence, railway infrastructure has gone up merely by 2.25 times. Thus there is a wide gap between the availability of berths and number of reservation seekers.
The Ministry of Railways has decided to undertake a massive capacity augmentation drive on major trunk routes. Member Traffic Railway Board Md Jamshed said the railways has planned to provide reservation for passengers on demand and simultaneously increasing the speed of all trains.
“This will be done on sectoral basis soon and by 2020 Indian Railways would offer reserved tickets to any long distance traveller,” Jamshed told The Pioneer on the sidelines of a function at Rail Bhawan on Tuesday. On this occasion, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu flagged off one train each from Hubbali to Varanasi, and another one from Hubbali to Mysuru in the poll bound Karnataka.
A senior railway official said to start with the Railway Board is considering to implement this reservation on demand services on routes where there is not enough pressure and the scheme could be manageable within existing resources.
Of the total of 67 sectors in the country identified as congestion network, Allahabad-Mughal Sarai sector on the main New Delhi-Patna-Howrah is the most congested network.
“In the beginning, we cannot think of providing such a facility on congested route such as New-Delhi Patna, Mumbai-Patna, and New Delhi Kolkatta due to mismatch of the volume of passengers and lack of infrastructure, “ said the official.

* It would be very good if Reservation on demand is available and that too at normal fares.
* Practically it looks possible only after capcaity of saturated sections is duly augmented.
* By 2020, we can expect JNPT-Dadri and Ludhiana-Sonnngar DFCs to be operational and Reservation on demand may be possible on routes like Mumbai-Ahmedabad/Delhi, Delhi-Kanpur/Lucknow/Varanasi/Patna etc but for throughout IR network, it will be difficult.

When reservation on demand is available on any route, the rail traffic shall increase drastically, as people going by other means, or cancelling/postponing their journey, due to non-availablility of confirmed rail-reservation shall then travel by train.
