The government should look more into preventing railway accidents by maintaining railway tracks and bridges in an impeccable manner.

Indian Railways is careless and will stay careless...Expecting railway accidents to eliminate will be a dream,they have never done it and they will never do it!

@120km/hr - :shock:!
Thats just a gimmick! There's an unwritten rule that 'Trains should start by the correct time and reach 5-15 mins late the destination'.

You are talking about Shatabdi Trains,you would be amazed by hearing the Running of Express/SF Trains,the Famous "Amritsar-Mumbai Bandra Terminus" 12926 Paschim Express..this train is so fast that you can't expect what it does!It's scheduled departure from Sonepat Railway station is 15:12 and Scheduled Arrival time on Delhi(Subzi Mandi)Railway Station is 15:58,i was shocked to see that this train arrived subzi mandi @15:47,while my train came from Delhi Junction Railway Station-as i was on my way to Sonepat by 54303 Kalka Passenger!This Train took total 35 Minutes to cover 42Kms and arrived 11 minutes ago..so not only for shatabdi's..When Indian Railways run@their speed..they go as fast as 110km/h for Express/SF Express Trains too..You can Expect the Unexpected any time any where because this is "India" :D

The railways use the local water from toilets and heat the water using the Local electric rod .For easy access the tea making area is located near toilet.That's how we have that cuppa :D Ofcourse most would have seen these images but just incase you forgot the taste here is the reminder.Doubledecker or single..the tea/coffee remains same.

How are double decker trains going to pass under bridges that are designed for single-level trains? I guess they didn't think about that.
Mission abort!

Double-decker trains are not really like Double-decker buses.
It retains the same dimensions, with two splits inside.
