Trains To Get High Speed Internet Via Satellites, Courtesy Indian Space Res
2012-05-02 08:40:00
It is newly reported that  Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has allowed  the use of satellites to beam high speed internet directly onto moving trains. According to the news, Indian Railways will use the KU Band to make availability of broadband speed in trains like the Rajdhani. Exactly a year ago, the Railways had finally received the financial backing of Rs. 6.3 Crores (US$ 1.2 Million) to introduce WiFi Connectivity on trains. How will the system work? As this is a pilot project only 3 coaches of the Howrah Rajdhani will have such connectivity. This will establish a direct link up with the satellite. Once the link is good, the coaches will have internet connectivity through WiFi. Interestingly, passengers are not being charged for this service, yet. Railway stations are already being connected to such services.  A while ago, they had initiated a project to link their trains with GPS for accurate position information. Indian railways are by far the most ...

The Train in Spain: Essential information about trains and fares
2012-04-04 16:34:00
Regina Bryan’s interesting article here on EuroCheapo last month sparked a discussion on rail fares in Spain. So we thought a few thoughts on Spanish rail travel might be in order. The hop-on-at-will culture that prevails in many European countries when it comes to long-distance rail travel simply does not apply in Spain. All long-distance services in Spain and even the majority of inter-regional (or medium-distance) trains need to be pre-booked. Access to departure platforms at principal stations is strictly regulated, with only those holding a valid ticket and seat reservation for the upcoming departure being allowed through to the platform. On premium services, luggage is screened in X-ray machines. Seville Santa Justa station. Photo © hidden europe Grand design So the whole mood of many Spanish main-line stations is more like that of an airport. This is not unique to Spain. Travelers on the Eurostar services that link London with the continent will be familiar with check-in p...

European Rail Strike Update: Which trains are affected?
2010-10-27 16:38:00
By Nicky Gardner and Susanne Kries— Europe has enjoyed or endured, depending on how you view these matters, a festival of rail strikes this past week or two. And yet, by and large, business and social life continues. The impact of rail strikes varies enormously from country to country. Nationwide standstill in Belgium When a Greek rail strike takes place, as one is this week, the entire network shuts down and virtually no trains run at all. And so in Belgium, where rail strikes are happily less frequent, but where a strike generally means a total network shutdown. Belgium had a one-day strike on October 18, 2010, the first nationwide stoppage since a one-day strike in November 2009, and that did lead to the cancellation of all trains. Even Eurostar, which has famously managed to maintain a full service from London to Paris during the recent extended wave of French strikes, was defeated by Belgium. Brussels-bound trains from London ran only as far as Lille, with passengers heading...

Planes, Trains & Automobiles: Some Data Should Just Stay at Work
2008-11-12 01:00:00
In recent security briefings, I’m often asked: “Should I protect sensitive information on my laptop by encrypting my laptop?” My advice is to first ask WHY?  Why do you as an employee have the business or security justification to transfer and store sensitive PII: (personally identifiable information) onto your mobile device?   (A little of asking who, what, where and when about your information will help here too).

High Speed Trains for Qatar
2008-09-06 13:18:00
Plans for trains in Qatar are going ahead at full speed, according to Railway Gazette. Some expats have been sceptical of the trains programme proceeding, especially after the end of the Asian Games. Indeed some plans do never seem to take place - an obvious one being the new National Library, which was marked on the map when I arrived here three years and a half years ago but has yet to be built.However, Qatar has now chartered Deustche Bahn for the preliminary stages of developing the railway i.e. planning. Plans include a railway link into Doha from the airport, an East coast rail link to Ras Laffan and Messaieed, a link to Saudi Arabia, "people movers" in some areas of Doha such as Lusail and possibly even a high speed link to Bahrain.I don't know how many times people have said that Qatar really needs to develop its public transport system. Now it seems that they are really going to do it. Unfortunately, there are likely to be many years of worsening traffic congestion before ...

Bicycles to be allowed on trains, Singapore buses as part of 6-month trial
2008-05-22 01:17:00
Bicycles to be allowed on trains, Singapore buses as part of 6-month trial By Hiroshi Limmell, SINGAPORE : Cyclists will be allowed to bring foldable bicycles on board all trains and public buses, in a six-month trial. This is an initiative by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a study to meet the transport needs of diverse groups of people. The trial period is from May 24 to November 24 this year. Foldable bicycles will be allowed on MRT trains every weekday during off-peak hours and on SBS and SMRT buses on weekends and public holidays. The trial is one of several initiatives announced during the Land Transport Review. The Review recognises an increasing trend of people cycling for sports, recreation or as a means of transport. Although the move gives cyclists more convenience, LTA spokesman Jeremy Yap said public safety must still come first. He said, “Cyclists and other commuters are encouraged to be considerate and make way for one another, so that more people can use ...

Burning Trains
2008-05-03 16:31:00
My train journey home last night took two and a half hours for what is normally a forty minute high-speed dash up the country. It all started well, but the train came to a halt at Wembley Central and some of the lights went out. About ten minutes later the Train Manager announced that there was a burning freight train just ahead of us and, as the fire brigade were busy spraying water around, the power to overhead lines in the immediate area on both sets of north/south lines had been cut. A while later and the train's backup power supply depleted and the remaining lights went out. All passengers were forced to vacate and wait on the platform for a while, before squeezing into an already overcrowded London Overground train to Watford where another fast train was waiting.Stopping the trains sounds very sensible - everyone knows that water and electricity don't mix very well (or do, that being the problem). But ... hang on ... what happens when it rains?

Passenger Trains Collide in Eastern China
2008-04-28 04:45:00
April 28, NY TimesBEIJING — A predawn collision between two passenger trains in Eastern China on Monday has killed at least 66 people and injured 247, according to Xinhua, the state news agency, making it one of the deadliest rail accidents in recent years.The two trains, one heading from Beijing to Qingdao and the other traveling between Yantai and Xuzhou, collided at 4:40 a.m. in the town of Zibo, Shandong Province.Witnesses said one train derailed at a bend and then struck the other, throwing at least ten cars into a ditch. Wire reports quoted a rail official saying that a new timetable introduced on Monday might have contributed to the crash.Last September, a collision involving two trains took place on the same line, although there were no deaths. In January, 18 track workers were killed on the Beijing-Qingdao route after they were struck by a train traveling 75 m.p.h. in the dark.Chinese newspapers frequently report railway fatalities, although most of them involve small num...
Mumbai gets smartcards for local trains and BEST buses
2008-04-25 16:40:00
During my train travels from New Jersey to New York via Subway, I used to always think of how it would be to have a similar ticketing system for journey in crowded Mumbai local trains. The first thing that came to my mind - it was just not possible given the logistics and tracking involved. For those who are not aware, in US and UK (specifically for Subway trains and Tubes), the traveler has to just go to nearest vending machine before entering the platform, get a pass of standard denominations and swipe it before entering the train platform. Every time one swipes the card, certain amount is deducted toward your journey. No waiting in lines ! Now, to my surprise, even Mumbai seems to be moving towards similar system. The Central Railways (CR) launched "Go Mumbai" smart card - a first-of-a-kind travel card which works like a pre-paid telephone card, and can be used for travel on the local Mumbai trains and BEST buses.
