Tf -in- Mike’s Railway History – A Himalayan Loop Line

Por |febrero 17th, 2016|

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is one of the engineering feats of the world. Although the steepness of the gradients on this narrow-gauge line is eclipsed in other parts of the world, and the 7,407 ft. altitude of the summit at Ghoom station is less than half the height of some of the summits described on the page, «The Magic of the Andes.» The achievement of the engineers who built the line more than half a century ago is a noteworthy one in the history of railways.

This little railway has a gauge of 2 ft. and a length of fifty-one miles, with steep gradients and amazing loops. It climbs from the plains—which are most oppressive in the hot weather—to the coolness of the «hills,» as British residents in India call the lower slopes of the Himalayas on which are situated the towns, or «stations,» to which they go periodically to preserve their health.

I feel that the wisest course is to spend the money

in improvements to the present network,

e.g. the Dedicated Freight Corridors.

HSR = huge public subsidies to

luxurious travel for the richest citizens.

And they will prefer to fly, anyway…

Tfcin – Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India – DFCCIL

Por |octubre 23rd, 2015|

Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) is a Special Purpose Vehicle set up under the administrative control of Ministry of Railways to undertake planning & development, mobilization of financial resources and construction, maintenance and operation of the Dedicated Freight Corridors. DFCCIL was incorporated in October 2006 under Indian Companies Act 1956.

The plan to construct dedicated freight corridors across the country marks a strategic inflexion point in the history of Indian Railways that has essentially run mixed traffic across its network. Once completed, the dedicated freight corridors will enable Indian Railways to improve its customer orientation and meet market needs more effectively. Creation of rail infrastructure on such a scale – unprecedented in independent India – is also expected to drive the establishment of industrial corridors and logistic parks along its alignment.
