CR Solapur already converted two conventional ICF trains in to DEMUs, there legendary Solapur-Pune day and overnight passengers by removing sleeper class permanently. Dharwad Passenger is left to SWR now, i don't think Hubballi got any DEMU in last budget.

People continue to share, volunteer and rally despite prolonged impasse
On a drizzly Monday morning, Dambar Prasad Shiwakoti, senior master of Darjeeling’s elite Turnbull High Secondary School, leaves his house at 5 a.m. for the nearby neighbourhood of Rose Bank, where he enters an unimpressive double-storey building. He cleans the blackboard in a large, rectangular hall with a duster and waits for students to arrive.
Everything but pharmacies in Darjeeling have been shut down since June 15, following a call by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) demanding a separate State for Gorkhas, but
...

this makeshift school has been functioning for the last 51 days. “The Class X examination is approaching. Students of elite institutions are attending private classes in Siliguri. But what about those who are not from elite schools?” Mr. Shiwakoti asks. He often works late and wonders if he did this much “during usual times”. Classes begin at 7 a.m., followed by an afternoon session at 11 a.m. About 275 students of nearly a dozen schools attend. “In these times, we have to cooperate with each other,” says Urmila Pradhan, a Class X student from the St. Teresa's Girls School.
Mr. Shiwakoti approached Uday Sewa Sangh, a voluntary organisation, for permission to start the school in their premises, usually rented out for weddings. The club agreed.
The spirit of cooperation keeps Darjeeling going. There is no solution for the impasse in sight. The Chief Minister of West Bengal is silent, the GJM leadership appears confused, the Central Government seems reluctant to act, and the Internet is down. “During 1986 movement [for Gorkhaland], Rajiv Gandhi was far more proactive than today’s Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP],” claims a senior official of a tea planters’ association, who does not wish to be named.
Yet, Darjeeling’s residents are not deserting the movement. Every morning, they assemble in different parts of a town that is littered with burnt vehicles, shouting slogans for Gorkhaland. They keep their moral high by hugging each other, forming human chains, and even having toddlers hold ‘Jai Gorkhaland’ placards. Many bring vegetables or noodles. “We often carry some food to the rallies these days, to ensure that our neighbours have enough,” laughs Roshan Rai of the NGO DLR Prerna.
The city is usually deserted, but for a few hours in the afternoon when people throng its centre. Many of them participate in street corner meetings. In the absence of regular vegetable markets, vendors set up tiny, temporary shops in the by-lanes, which have managed to hold the prices. They disappear later in the day. “And if there are little or no garbage on the roads, it is because the municipality is overworking with skeletal staff,” said a senior government official.
The town falls silent by early evening and sinks into darkness. Paramilatary and police vehicles drive at a remarkable speed, flashing blue lights, often stopping lone walkers to check their identity. The agitation is “still absolutely unarmed”, protesters say.
For far-flung areas
“While we are doing our best, the key question is if we are reaching the forest villages and remotest tea gardens,” said Roshan Rai, convener of a meeting held at the Diosecan Pastoral Centre last Sunday to streamline equitable food distribution, “a challenging task”, the organisers said.
“We distribute five kilos of rice, edible oil, lentils and salt in the tea gardens as they are cut off,” said P.P. Sherpa of the Japan-funded Eurasia Reiyukai.
A former teacher Norreen Dunne believes “personal bonding has increased after the internet ban”.
The bonding was visible in a narrow bylane in Mahakal Market, where volunteers of the Mani Trust, a charitable organisation, were selling potato and squash momos to raise funds. Sashi Yanzon, a key organiser, said they were selling about 40 kilos of vegetable momos every day. “The money is used to buy fuel to take basic food stuff to villages in far-flung areas,” she said.
Sudha Rai, a school teacher and another volunteer, said they had reached about 2,000 families. The Mani Trust’s shop is among the hundreds of charitable institutions and individuals coordinating relief in the hills.

punctuality of the SWR is 96 percent, which is one of the best in Indian Railways," he added.
He said with the sincere and dedicated efforts of the staff and officers, the SWR had achieved an unprecedented success in 2016-17 financial year.
"This Independence Day was also observed as 'Sankalp Parva,' the day to resolve to transform India. This was launched by the prime minister to ignite transformation for creating a nation that all Indians would be proud of," he said.
Railway School students and the employees gave colourful cultural programmes on the occasion.
