A day after the selfie craze inside a running train led to the deaths of several youths, the Eastern Railway authorities on Friday appealed to passengers to be careful and issued guidelines. A railway spokesman said they have already launched campaigns in print, television and social media to make passengers aware of the risks of using phones while travelling.
In a horrific turn of events, a youth fell from a running train between Bali and Liluah railway stations while trying to click a selfie on Thursday night. Four of his friends were hit by another train while rushing towards the accident spot. According to eyewitnesses, the four friends got down at Bali station and started running through the railway track when a

speeding train knocked them down, killing three on the spot and severely injuring the fourth.
“We have launched campaigns in various media platforms urging people not to use a phone or listen to music while crossing the railway tracks and not to click photographs while travelling,” Chief Public Relations Officer of Eastern Railways Rabi Mahapatra said on Friday.
Stating that photography is “strictly prohibited” inside the railway station premises and trains without prior permission, he warned passengers of strict action if the rules are not followed. “Photography inside the railway stations and the carriages is always strictly prohibited as these are considered restricted areas. However, with the emergence of phone cameras people often indulge in taking selfies in these places,” Mahapatra explained.
“We have detained and fined several passengers in the past for breaking the rule. Our RPF officials are instructed to monitor the passengers and catch anyone clicking photographs inside the train compartment. Anyone breaking the rule would be penalised,” he added.

yesterday demonstrated at Asansol station over the “poor quality” of food allegedly served to them for dinner last night.
The passengers of the B8 and B9 coaches alleged that the food served to them at Kanpur was stale and many of them had vomited through the night after having it. The issue was raised in the Lok Sabha today and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu assured action against the caterer.
While an inquiry has been ordered into the incident, railways has imposed Rs 50,000 penalty and issued show cause notice seeking explanation from the caterer as to why his catering contract should not be cancelled, said a senior Railway Ministry official involved in catering management.
R K Associates has been given 15-days time to submit explanation on the food complaints. Besides termination of its contract, the agency could also be blacklisted after completion of inquiry, the official said. Railways has introduced the e-catering and ready-to-eat food provisions for passengers.

It's still not termination. Just notice to explain. Some cooked up explanation, then give kickbacks and then come back. Just because an MP was travelling, and due to media spotlight all this hoopla. Else nothing........

The route of iconic Darjeeling Mail, that connects Siliguri – the gateway of North East India- to City of Joy- Kolkata, might get altered for better by the end of 2017- in terms of both fares and travel time, according to reports. Currently, Darjeeling mail runs from Sealdah to New Jalpaiguri station, situated near Siliguri, via Barddhaman Junction and Malda town. At present, it takes over nine and a half hours to reach New Jalpaiguri from Sealdah or vice versa. Railways have proposed that the train will run via Murshidabad and Azimganj to reach Malda town and subsequently New Jalpaiguri. The proposed move will shorten the route resulting in deduction in travel time. It has been learned that railways could slash fares of Darjeeling Mail.

issue regarding rail-bridge over the river Ganga, that was stalled for years, has been resolved. The bridge connects Murshidabad to Azimganj. The land acquisition issue was finally resolved following the Mamata Banerjee government’s intervention
Till now, there was no direct rail route between Murshidabad and north Bengal. The proposed route will resolve the issue. However, passengers boarding Darjeeling Mail from Barddhaman Junction will face difficulties.
There is a toy train service between ‘Queen of Hills’ Darjeeling and New Jalpaiguri. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, consists of 88.48 km of narrow gauge track that connects New Jalpaiguri with Darjeeling, passing through Ghoom at an altitude of 2258 meters.
