I always see that barrier beside the platform tracks at stations. What are they for? Are they intended to discourage people from crossing the tracks or are they water pipes to replenish the water supply in coach toilets?

8th longest service in the world.

Quote:


They were passengers on the inaugural run of the Vivek Express, a new weekly train that now boasts the longest rail route in the country – 4,286 km all the way from Dibrugarh in upper Assam, to Kanyakumari at the southern tip of Tamil Nadu, that will be covered in 82.30 hours.

This train left in the morning, but the regular weekly service, which will begin on November 26, will leave at 11.45 p.m. every Saturday, reaching its destination at 10.25 a.m. on Wednesday.
