Amazing Facts of Indian Railways:

1.Indian Railways transports almost 25 million passengers daily

That is almost the entire population of North Korea. There are 150 countries with lesser population than the number of passengers Indian Railways carry.

  1. The Indian Railways website gets close to 1.2 million hits per minute
  2. The record for maximum number of stops by an Express/Mail train is held by Howrah – Amritsar Express 115 halts
  3. Two stations at same location: Srirampur and Belapur are two different stations in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra which are both at the same location on the railway route but on opposite sides of the track.

关于印度铁路的惊人事实:

1.印度铁路每天运送近2500万乘客。这几乎相当于朝鲜的总人口。有150个国家的人口总数低于印度铁路的载客量。

2.印度铁路网站的点击量接近每分钟120万次

3.豪拉-阿姆利则特快专列有115个停靠站,创下了特快专列停靠站最多的记录。

4.同一站点设两个车站:斯里拉姆普尔和贝拉普尔是马哈拉施特拉邦艾哈迈德纳格尔区两个不同的车站,它们设在铁路沿线的同一站点,分别位于轨道的两侧。

And my personal favorite.

Kalka-Shimla Railway line, a UNESCO Heritage site.

Shimla (Simla), the summer capital of British India in 1864, and was also the headquarters of the British army in India.

Kalka-Shimla-Railway runs through 102 tunnels, some of which have hoary tales to tell.

For instance, the longest tunnel at Barog, named after the engineer in charge of construction, bears the blood of it's creator who apparently committed suicide after making a mistake in laying the alignment. This tunnel is 1143.61 meters long and remained the second longest tunnel on Indian Railways for a long time. It is a straight tunnel, passing through fissured sand stone.

Apparently, Chief Engineer H.S. Herlington later completed the tunnel with help from Bhalku, a local sadhu (priest).

The line has 864 bridges.

It has 919 curves, the sharpest being 48 degrees (a radius of 37.47 m or 122.93 feet).

Climbing from 656 meters, the line terminates at an elevation of 2,076 meters at Shimla, a difference in height of 1,420 meters.

以下我个人最喜欢线路

卡尔卡-西姆拉线,是合国教科文组织认证的世界遗产之一。

西姆拉,1864年英属印度夏季首府,也是英国军队在印度的总部。

卡尔卡-西姆拉线穿过102条隧道,其中一些隧道有古老的传说。例如,巴洛格最长的隧道,以负责施工的工程师命名,它承载着创造者的鲜血,这位工程师在铺设线路时犯了一个错误,而后自杀。这条隧道长1143.61米,一直以来都是印度铁路第二长的隧道。这是一条笔直的隧道,穿过有裂缝的砂岩。总工程师H.S. Herlington在当地一位高僧的帮助下完成了隧道的修建。

该线途径864座桥919道弯,其中最急的弯道是48度(半径37.47米,合122.93英尺)。从海拔656米开始攀爬打希姆拉海拔2076米处止,高度差1420米。

Neeraj Gupta, 3 Continents, 15+ Countries and Counting !!

India is building world's highest rail bridge in Jammu and Kashmir over river Chenab. It spans the Chenab River between Bakkal and Kauri, in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir. When completed, the bridge will be 1,315 m (4,314 ft) long, with a 480 m (1,570 ft) trussed arch span, 359 m (1,178 ft) above the river Chenab and a 650 m (2,130 ft) long viaduct on the Kauri side.

Indian engineers are toiling in the Himalayas to build the world's highest railway bridge which is expected to be 35 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower when completed by 2016.

印度正在查谟和克什米尔建造世界上最高的铁路桥,横跨查谟和克什米尔Reasi地区巴卡尔和考利之间的纳布河。大桥建成后将达到1315米(4314英尺)长,桁拱跨度为480米(1570英尺),高于杰纳布河359米(1178英尺),650米(2130英尺)长的高架桥位于Kauri一侧。

印度工程师正努力在喜马拉雅山脉建造世界上最高的铁路桥,预计到2016年竣工时将比埃菲尔铁塔高35米。

Work on the bridge started in 2002 but safety and feasibility concerns, including the area's strong winds, saw the project halted in 2008 before being green-lighted again two years later.

The estimated cost of the project, which is being handled by Konkan Railway Corporation, a subsidiary of state-owned Indian Railways, is $92 million.

The bridge will connect Baramulla to Jammu in the Himalayan state with a travel time of six-and-a-half hours, almost half the time it currently takes.

The main arch is being erected using two cable cranes attached on either side of the river which are secured on enormous steel pylons. The 1,315-metre long bridge will use up to 25,000 tonnes of steel with some material being transported by helicopters due to the tough terrain.

这座桥于2002年动工,但出于安全和可行性方面的考虑,包括该地区的强风,使得该项目于2008年停止,两年后才重新获得批准。该项目的估计成本为9200万美元,由印度国有铁路公司的子公司康坎铁路公司负责。

这座桥将连接巴拉穆拉和喜马拉雅州的查谟,行程6个半小时,几乎是目前所需时间的一半。主拱顶是用连接在河两岸的两架缆索起重机架设的,吊车用巨大的钢架固定缆索。这座1315米长的桥梁将使用多达25000吨钢材,由于地形恶劣,一些材料将由直升机运输。
