@saurabhsunny25: Re# 205961-2
The question is which state is having max no of Railway zones controlling some of that state's area?
For example; Maharashtra has CR(Mumbai, Nagpur), WR(BCT) and SCR(Nanded). So Maharashtra has three different zones...maybe more.
Like this, which state has more no of zones??
hope question is more clear this time..

Do you know the meaning of this 'X' written on train ?
Every day millions of people travel by train. Have you ever seen the last bogey in the train? Probably not, many people will never see or read the last bog of the train. Today, We will tell you the meaning of 'X' written at last bogie of train.
This mark is made so that the train staff can know that the entire train has gone. If you have ever paid attention, then you may have seen that there is a mark
on X on the last box of train. Have you ever wondered what this means? This X mark is made of white and red on the last bogie.
Not only this, on the last compartment of many trains, a lamps of electricity have also been started. This lamp glow once in 5 second. Earlier this lamp was glow from oil. But now it glow from power. According to the rule, it is mandatory to have this mark on the last bog of every train.
Apart from this, there is also a board on last bog of train where 'LV' is written. This board is written in English and its color is black or white. This board means the Last Vehicle. If a train has passed and the staff does not see the LV board, then it mean that the entire train has not come. In this situation emergency action is started.
