The dark blue coaches of Indian Railways will be a thing of the past now as the public transporter would be repainting all Mail/Express trains in a new colour scheme — beige and brown. The freshly-painted Delhi-Pathankot Express with 16 coaches will be the first train to be rolled out, by this month-end, with the new colour scheme developed by the in-house team of Northern Railway.

The colour of premium trains — including Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto — will however not be changed and only Mail/Express service with conventional coaches manufactured at the Integral Coach Factory in Chennai will be donning the new colour. Besides, special service trains like Tejas and Gatimaan Express will also continue with the existing colour.

“A complete makeover of coaches was long overdue and the new colour scheme was applied in trains after it was finally approved by Railways Minister Piyush Goyal,” a senior Railways Ministry official told IANS. It was in the 1990s that the new colour scheme of dark blue was introduced for Mail/Express coaches, replacing the brick red colour which was in use for decades.

Now the Railways has quite a task at hand — repainting about 30,000 coaches in the new colour scheme. Railways has been taking steps to revamp its network across the country and improve passenger experience. The makeover of coaches for a more pleasing travel experience is one such step.

“The change of colour is part of the Railways’ efforts to make passengers’ experience a pleasant one,” the official said. He further said besides the exterior, steps have been taken to improve the interiors of the coaches with additional facilities.

“The replacement of all toilets with bio-toilets, providing mobile chargers at each berth, comfortable seats are some of the changes undertaken in trains. In fact, a provision has also been activated to solicit passengers’ response and suggestions for improving service,” he added.

New Delhi: The Indian Railways will introduce several new railway lines which are now in different stages of execution. The information about the number of railway lines in each state was given by Minister of State of Railways, Rajen Gohain, in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on Thursday.

The completion of Railway projects requires clearances from various departments of State Government and Central Ministries like acquisition of land, statutory clearances like forestry and wildlife, shifting of utilities etc. The decision for taking new lines is made in Railway Budget only which is a yearly exercise.

Here is the list of state-wise details of ongoing New Line projects:

Assam & North Eastern Region: 15

Andhra Pradesh: 18

Bihar: 34

Chhattisgarh: 8

Delhi: 1

Gujarat: 4

Haryana: 7

Himachal Pradesh: 4

Jammu & Kashmir: 1

Jharkhand: 14

Karnataka: 16

Kerala: 2

Madhya Pradesh: 8

Maharashtra: 12

Odisha: 10

Punjab: 6

Rajasthan: 10

Telangana: 9

Tamil Nadu: 8

Uttar Pradesh: 15

Uttarakhand: 3

West Bengal: 18

On Wednesday, the government said that the Railways has set up 21 green corridors in 2017-18 under the Swachh Bharat Mission. As a part of Swachh Bharat Mission, Indian Railways is proliferating bio-toilets on its coaching stock so that no human waste is discharged from coaches on to the track.
In order to demonstrate the advantage of fitment of bio-toilets, six green corridors were made functional in 2016-17 and 21 in 2017-2018, Gohain said. The Minister added that on green corridors, the introduction of bio-toilets in coaches has been done to avoid direct discharge of human excreta on railway tracks or station premises.

This benefits the common man as foul smell, unhygienic surrounding, as well as shabby look, are avoided, he said. In the bio-toilets, the human excreta is collected in an eco-friendly bio-tank fitted under each toilet. The bio-tank decomposes the fecal matter and converts it into water and gases.

Sir, elsewhere, I think reply to a post by Pranav, I have confirmed that the RM, Piyush Goyal has instructed all Zonal railways to undertake extensive maintenance and repair works, especially with regard to track renewal and repairs, and in his blog, he clearly confirmed that punctuality of trains across almost all zones will be affected during the next 6-8 months. This was nearly two months back.
