New Rajdhani to halt at Vadodara




AHMEDABAD: The railway board has given the green signal for a third Rajdhani Express to run between Mumbai and Delhi. The train will be launched from Diwali and will also halt at Vadodara. This was decided at a meeting held recently in Vadodara attended by member (traffic) of the board and chief operating managers from all over India.

The Rajdhani will be particularly useful for people making frequent business trips to Delhi as airfares for a Mumbai-Delhi trip have touched Rs 10,000. Interestingly, the engine of the third Rajdhani will carry a painting of Amul Milk.

The train will have 24 compartments, of which 12 will be AC-III coaches. The rest 12 coaches will have an equal number of AC-I and AC-II compartments. There will be no side cars in the super deluxe AC coaches which will make the journey a lot more comfortable. The bathrooms of the train will be designed afresh to add to the luxury of the train.

Railway website to show waiting list earlier

Customers often complain about non-availability of seats in trains. To take care of this, the railway board will soon introduce a new feature on the IRCTC website which will now provide passengers information about the waiting list 20 days before the date of journey. This will help travellers decide whether passengers in the waiting list will be able to get travelling tickets or not. As is the case with air tickets, the railway tickets yet to be allotted will be auctioned in phases.

Karnavati Express to get LSB coaches

Travelling in Karnavati express is going to become more luxurious as several coaches of the train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai are going to be replaced by LSB coaches which are generally given to trains like Rajdhani and Shatabdi. "The coaches have reached the city but the power cart is yet to arrive." said a railway official. The replacing the coaches is going to take place in the days to come.

जयपुर में मेट्रो को चलता देख खिले चेहरे



जयपुर। शाम सवा पांच बजे गुलाबी मेट्रो जैसे ही मानसरोवर डिपो से रैम्प पर चढ़ी, मौजूद कार्मिकों एवं लोगों ने तालियों से उसका स्वागत किया।

मानसरोवर डिपो, रैम्प एवं मानसरोवर स्टेशन पर मेट्रो की अलग-अलग पूजा कर हर किसी ने उसके सफल संचालन की कामना की।

शाम छह बजे बाद जब मेट्रो मानसरोवर स्टेशन से श्याम नगर मेट्रो के लिए रवाना हुई तो उसे देखने के लिए सड़कों एवं इमारतों पर लोगों की भीड़ जमा हो गई।

ऎलिवेटेड कॉरिडोर पर मेट्रो को चलता देखने का सपना साकार होते देख लोग उत्साहित हो गए और अपने मोबाइल एवं कैमरे में मेट्रो की फोटो कैद करते नजर आए। बच्चे, बुजुर्ग, महिला, युवा सभी उत्साह के साथ मेट्रो दौड़ता देखते रहे।

नवम्बर 2010 में जब मेट्रो परियोजना का काम शुरू हुआ, तब से शहरवासी ऎलिवेटेड कॉरिडोर पर मेट्रो ट्रेन को चलता देखने का सपना संजोए बैठे हैं। तीन साल के इंतजार के बाद 18 सितम्बर को यह सपना साकार होगा।

मुख्यमंत्री अशोक गहलोत मेट्रो ट्रेन के ट्रायल रन की शुरूआत करेंगे। ट्रायल रन की तैयारी के लिए गुरूवार शाम सवा पांच बजे एक मेट्रो ट्रेन को मानसरोवर स्टेशन पर चढ़ा दिया गया।

डीएमआरसी के अधिकारियों ने डीपो के ट्रैक पर नारियल फोड़ कर मेट्रो ट्रेन को आगे बढ़ाया। इसके बाद मेट्रो को रैम्प के बीच में रोककर वहां काम करने वाले डीएमआरसी एवं जेएमआरसी के अधिकारियों एवं श्रमिकों ने पूजा की।

मेट्रो पर स्वास्तिक बनाकर माला पहनाई गई और अगरबत्ती से आरती कर मिठाई बांटी। फिर भगवान गणेश के जयकारों के साथ मेट्रो को मानसरोवर स्टेशन के लिए रवाना किया गया।

इस दौरान मानसरोवर स्टेशन एवं डीपों की छत, खिड़कियों एवं प्लेटफार्म पर डीएमआरसी के कार्मिक, जेएमआरसी में भर्ती किए गए कार्मिक और श्रमिकों ने तालियां बजा कर मेट्रो का स्वागत किया।

इसके बाद मानसरोवर स्टेशन की टीम ने मेट्रो की पूजा की। जेएमआरसी के सीएमडी निहाल चंद गोयल एवं अन्य अधिकारियों ने भी मानसरोवर स्टेशन से मेट्रो रैम्प पर चढ़ कर ऊपर आते हुए देखा।
