Indian Railways Running 197 Premium Trains

A total number of 197 premium trains have been introduced by the Indian Railways. The total additional earnings on account of dynamic fare upto 27.11.2014 after introduction of premium trains have been Rs. 49.71 crore. Apart from this additional earning, the response received from passengers has been encouraging going by the occupancy levels of these trains. 

The concept of premium train services on dynamic fare over and above the regular train services has been introduced with effect from 24.12.2013.The fare of premium special trains on dynamic pricing increases depending upon the demand and availability of accommodation. The base fare of these trains is the normal adult fare applicable for the trains plus the tatkal charges and the fare can increase based on demand intensity subject to a prescribed maximum limit. The dynamic fare of the premium trains increases proportionate to the increase in Actual Demand Intensity as compared to the Normal Demand Intensity.

Oil hits new five-year low before rallying to $63

(Reuters) - Brent crude hit a fresh five-year low close to $60 a barrel on Monday after oil producer group OPEC restated its determination not to cut output despite a global fuel glut, but the North Sea benchmark later rallied to trade around $63.

Market momentum appeared to be downwards, with analysts saying oil could plumb new depths before a sustained recovery.

Oil prices have collapsed over the last six months as high-quality, light crude from North America has overwhelmed demand at a time of lacklustre global economic growth.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has kept production steady, worried that any reduction in its output would have little impact onprice and instead mean surrendering market share.

"The decision has been made. Things will be left as is," OPEC Secretary-General Abdullah al-Badri told a conference in Dubai on Sunday. "We agreed that it is important to continue with production (at current levels) for the ... coming period."

Analysts said further oil price falls were possible.

"Oil prices may move below $60 per barrel in the near term," analysts at Barclays Bank said, but added that "this (level) is not sustainable in the long run".

Barclays said it expected Brent to average $67 per barrel in the first half of 2015 and $78 in the second half of next year.

Brent for January fell to a low of $60.28 a barrel in Asian trade on Monday, down $1.57 and its lowest since July 2009. The futures contract then rallied sharply to trade around $62.95 by 0910 GMT, up $1.10.

U.S. crude for January was trading at $58.50 a barrel, up 69 cents, after hitting a low of $56.25 earlier in the day - its lowest since May 2009.

"The market may just have moved down too far too quickly today," said Tamas Varga, energy analyst at London brokerage PVM Oil Associates. "It was a bit overdone and people may be 'bottom-picking'."

Analysts have cut oil price forecasts sharply over the last few weeks.

National Australia Bank said on Monday it had lowered its Brent forecast to an average $80 in the fourth quarter of 2014, $75 in the first quarter of 2015 and an average of $80 for all of next year.

"Softer global demand, coupled with unprecedented growth in supply are weighing on global oil indices, with prices falling to levels not seen since the global financial crisis," National Australia Bank said in a report to clients.

Railways bid to make journeys musical hits royalty hurdle

Railways’ attempt to add music to journeys to and from Kolkata has hit an unforeseen roadbloack: a hefty price tag.

Passengers, mostly Bengalis, had given a feedback in an official survey that they would like Railways to play Rabindrasangeet (Tagore songs) in the mornings and classic Bollywood melodies in the evenings on the Rajdhani Express and Duronto Express.

But, the Indian Performing Right Society (IPRS), a body which issues licences permitting usage of music within India, has demanded a hefty royalty from the cash-strapped Railways, leaving authorities of the national transporter baffled. The IPRS has demanded money at the rate of 25 paise per day per passenger multiplied by the number of passengers travelling in a train daily. This would be multiplied by the number of trains and further multiplied by 365 days.

Hit with the massive quote, the Eastern Railway has decided to scale down the number of trains they want to play music in. From seven trains as planned earlier, they now plan to implement the move in two Rajdhanis and two Durontos out of Kolkata. But even then, the musical journeys are going to cost them nearly Rs 16 lakh a year, an amount Railways thinks is exorbitant for a non-essential service.
Following a meeting between IPRS representatives and Eastern Railway officials in Kolkata, the copyright holder decided to bring down the quote to Rs 10 lakh. Even that is proving too much for Railways. The condition is to deposit the amount with the society before getting the authorisation.The zonal railway recently sent an ‘urgent’ message to Delhi to resolve this issue.

“We have written to the Railway ministry to take up the matter with the ministry concerned and work out a solution that involves us paying just a token amount,” R N Mohapatra, Chief Public Relations Officer of Eastern Railway told The Indian Express. “We are not in the business of playing music. We are only transporters, so why charge us so much?,” he added.

Based on the inter-ministerial deliberations, the Chief Commercial Manager in the zonal railway will take a call.

Avishek Basu, regional manager of IPRS, which comes under the HRD Ministry, said: “We have asked from railways what we demand from other organisations like Air India. They all pay us as the approved tariff. Even Commonwealth Games paid us a copyright amount.”

Foot overbridge to connect Shahupuri with railway station soon

KOLHAPUR: The Central Railway has floated a tender for the construction of a foot overbridge (FOB) that would connect the railway station with the Rajarampuri area.

The tender also includes construction of a gate towards Shahupuri area, which will enable the passengers to enter the railway station. Currently, all the passengers have to reach the station road to enter it. The process is time consuming and hence, several passengers have been demanding construction of a gate on the Shahupuri side. Published on December 13, the tender has estimated the construction cost to be Rs 1.6 crore for the FOB as well as the gate connecting platform no. 2.

The existing FOB is only for the passengers getting down on platform no. 3 for coming out of the station. But there was no connectivity for the passengers coming from the Shahupuri and Rajarampuri areas. At present, they have to take a long route to come to the station road, which leads to congestion at the main gate.

The FOB connecting Rajarampuri will have a small ticket counter that will save the passengers' time and reduce the waiting period at the existing ticket windows.

At present, a large number of regular travellers come to the station from the Rajarampuri area. They either have to reach via the bus stand road or from the Gokul Hotel route, which is time consuming.

The nearest major railway junction is at Miraj in Sangli district, from where a single rail line connects Kolhapur with the main line. The city's railway station has a monthly turnover of over Rs 1 crore through passenger traffic as well as freight charges.

Rajarampuri and Shahupuri are the two key areas of the city with a sizeable population of middle-class and higher middle-class, who are largely dependent on rail connectivity. Residents from these areas have repeatedly demanded construction of a connecting bridge, especially an FOB. The FOB will also reduce the number of private vehicles arriving at the station to pick up or drop the passengers.

The railway authorities are working on a plan whether the FOB that connects platform nos. 2 and 3 could be widened. The FOB is narrow and gets congested when a train arrives on platform no. 3. Though the Kolhapur railway station is a terminus, the number of visitors here is in large numbers.

Being a terminus, the platforms are parallel, which can be connected at one end so that the wheelchairs can be used by the passengers who cannot not use the FOB. The concept has been approved in principle and the engineering department of the railway will submit its final report soon.

Shivnath Biyani, president of Kolhapur Railway Passengers' Association, said, "It is a long-pending demand and if it comes up within the next nine months, it will be of great help to the passengers. The Central Railways should understand the importance of the railway station. Better facilities here will benefit every businessman."

Mohan Shete, former station manager, said, "The FOB should have a ticket counter on the Rajarampuri side, so that the passengers can purchase tickets and enter the station. It will not only increase the passenger traffic but also result in good revenues for the railway."

नए साल में महंगी होगी रेल यात्रा

नए साल में रेल यात्रा महंगी हो सकती है। माना जा रहा है कि रेल बजट में यात्री किराया में बढ़ोत्तरी का प्रस्ताव किया जा सकता है। ईंधन के दामों में इजाफा के चलते किराया में बढ़ोतरी का दबाव बढ़ा है।

एक वरिष्ठ रेलवे अधिकारी ने कहा कि ईंधन समायोजन से संबंधित किराया संशोधन दिसंबर में होना है, जो फरवरी के रेल बजट में प्रभावी होगा। हाल ही के महीनों में ऊर्जा कीमतों में चार फीसदी से अधिक का इजाफा होने की वजह से यात्री किराया को बढ़ाने की जरूरत है।

रेलवे की घोषित नीति के मुताबिक ईंधन और ऊर्जा के दामों में बदलाव के चलते यात्री किराया और माल भाड़े में एक साल में दो बार संशोधन किया जा चुका है। आखिरी बार जून में यात्री किराए में 4.2 फीसदी और माल भाड़े में 1.4 फीसदी का इजाफा किया गया था। रेल मंत्री ने हाल ही में किराया में वृद्धि की ओर संकेत किया था।

रेलवे के बढ़ते खर्चे को पूरा करने के लिए रेल किराया में बढ़ोत्तरी की संभावना के सवाल पर प्रभु ने कहा था कि यात्री किराया में इजाफा करने से पहले यात्री सेवा में सुधार किया जाना चाहिए। सुरक्षा से समझौता नहीं किया जा सकता है।

रेलवे में सुधार के हिमायती प्रभु ने रेल के बुनियादी ढांचे को विकसित करने और सुरक्षा की जरूरतों को पूरा करने के खातिर बड़े पैमाने पर निवेश की तत्काल आवश्यकता पर जोर दे चुके हैं।

उन्होंने कहा था कि घोषित योजनाओं को पूरा करने के लिए छह से आठ लाख करोड़ रुपये की जरूरत है।

Documentary on Melbourne's Outer Circle Line tells story of railway 'debacle'

A new documentary on Melbourne's steam-era Outer Circle Line will screen to sell-out audiences this month.

The first section of the Outer Circle Line opened to trains between Oakleigh and Camberwell in 1890, with the final section between Riversdale and Fairfield Park completed in 1891.

With little demand for the service, sections of the track started to close in 1893.

"It was a complete debacle, an extraordinary waste of taxpayer's money," documentary producer Ron Killeen told 774 ABC Melbourne's Hilary Harper.

"There was really no need for the railway to be there."

It later emerged that members of parliament had purchased property along the proposed line before voting for the construction of the railway.

They then sold the land for a large profit once the line was completed.

The entire line was closed by 1897, although some sections were subsequently reopened with mixed success.

The Camberwell to Alamein section of the Alamein Line is the only section of the Outer Circle Line still operating today.

Another section of the track has become the Outer Circle Trail, a walking and bicycle path between Fairfield and Ashburton.

A number of bridges built for the railway are still in use.
"The Chandler Highway Bridge is a legacy of the railway," Mr Killeen said.

"If you've been caught up in the traffic snarl there that happens on an almost daily basis, now you know why - it was actually built for two [railway] tracks."

Mr Killeen said there are a number of brick bridges around Canterbury that were originally built for the railway.

One bridge at Barnsbury Road was built to service a private house after the owner complained the railway cut off his driveway.

"There's this enormous structure... a brick and steel bridge which was built for one house," Mr Killeen said.

"It gives you some idea of the money that was spent during the land boom of the 1880s."
Strong response to teaser video

Mr Killeen said he and his business partner Andrew McColm came up with the idea for the documentary in late 2013.

"We've got memories of being at school and using it as a shortcut to get to the local sportsground," he said.

They made a three-minute "teaser" video for the documentary, which they put online in January.

"We were inundated with emails, phone calls people knocking on our door saying 'when's this coming out, we want to see this'," Mr Killeen said.

Mr Killeen and Mr McColm raised $13,000 through a crowdfunding campaign which partially funded the production.

The completed documentary includes stories from two local residents, now aged in their 80s, who remember the railway from their childhoods.

"It wasn't a passenger train at that time, the passenger services had stopped and it was just used to deliver timber, mallee roots and coal to the local fuel merchants," Mr Killeen said.

The residents tell how railway workers would let them ride the train for two or three stops, before dropping them off to walk home.

Two screenings of The Outer Circle Line to be held at cinemas in Hawthorn and Balwyn have sold out.

The documentary can be rented online, and DVDs can be pre-ordered from the documentary's website.

The producers hope to see the documentary air on television in 2015.

Hundreds roll in for railway exhibition

RAINHILL Village Hall had some eye-catching exhibits on display as hundreds made the journey for an annual event.

The day saw model locomotives and tracks at the show, held in the hall by the Rainhill Model Railway Club.

The club had 11 layouts on display, with experts passing on their knowledge to the crowds who attended, including children.

And the Merseyside & SW Lancashire 009 Narrow Gauge Group was also in attendance.

They had five layouts of their own, including traders and demonstrators showing people how to make different displays.

And for the little ones, Father Christmas was also present to meet youngsters who turned up on the day, with a charity “Sno-Joke” also there to keep them occupied.

“It went very successfully and we had at least 500 or 600 turn up,” said Peter Hughes, of the Rainhill Model Railway Club.

“We had very favourable comments from people leaving.

“It was the 16th event which we have held each year on the same weekend.

“And the free vintage bus from the Transport Museum worked pretty well.

“Overall it was hard work on the day.

“But very successful.”

Railways, the next boom

Railways and roads are the two means of transport on land. Roads can be built in the hilly areas also, whereas railway lines cannot be laid easily. The railways have advantage over the roadways in that they can carry a large number of passengers and large and heavy loads to long distances. Also journey by train is more comfortable than by bus. 

More than any other technical design or social institution, the railway stands for modernity. No competing form of transport, no subsequent technological innovation, no other industry has wrought or facilitated change on the scale that has been brought about by the invention and adoption of the railway.

Finally, a workshop for Central Railway’s local trains

The first maintenance workshop, exclusively on Central Railway (CR) for local trains (EMU) is being built in Sanpada, which will have a capacity of conducting Periodic Overhaul (POH) of 150 trains per month.

Each of CR’s workshops in Matunga and Parel have a capacity of maintaining 75 local trains per month but were originally built to maintain only mail express engines. Also, the maintenance of local trains in these workshops cause delays in getting the trains out in time.

An example of this is visible as CR has been running the Trans-Harbour line (Thane to Panvel) on 70 per cent capacity, as reported by The Asian Age on October 23. There are three rakes that have been running on only nine coaches instead of 12 since October as workshop officials have said that they are overloaded with the maintenance work.

According to sources, work on these rakes is not being done, as there isn’t enough space for the POH. An official on condition of anonymity explained, “We have not been able to get the Trans-Harbour coaches back since October because the workshop officials have been saying that they have to work on the engines of the mail express trains as well.”

Officials hope that the Sanpada workshop will solve this problem. The blueprint of the area has been finalised this week and is estimated to cost Rs 250 crore.

A POH of a train is essential and is conducted every 18 months, as the nut and bolts, wheels of the train, electrical wiring throughout the coach as well as its frame are checked. The train is taken apart and reassembled with new parts wherever wear and tear is detected.
