The Garib Rath express train is one of the premier trains introduced by the Indian Railways in 2005 by Railways Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav to provide fully air-conditioned travel to passengers who could not afford the expensive tickets of Rajdhani and Shatabdi express trains. The Garib Rath, whose name means "Poor Man's Chariot", was introduced with features of full air-conditioning and speed faster than most other super-fast express trains. The maximum speed of Garib Rath trains is 130 kmph which is the same as Rajdhani's top speed. However, in Garib Rath trains, passengers are not normally provided with blankets and pillows; and they have to pay extra to get them.

MEMU is a commuter rail system in India operated by the Indian Railway.
The system uses Mainline Electrical Multiple Units operating on Alternating Current drawn from over-head cables through the catenary system.
MEMU trains are designed for semi-urban and rural areas, unlike EMU trains that are designed for urban and semi-urban areas. MEMU trains also have end vestibules which are missing in EMU.

WAG9 pulled goods train...



Quote:
WAG9 is referred to as the "Heavy Haul" freight locomotive of the Indian Railways
This locomotive was conceived owing to the extreme growth in the rail freight transportation sector. The growth in this sector is considered to be of great importance in the growth of the economy of India. This need had arisen the need for more electrification and electric locomotives in India. Around 60 to 65 % of the freight haulage of the Indian Railways takes place on the electrified section of the Golden Quadrilateral (Indian Railways) and diagonals(which accounts for 25% of the route.) These routes are highly busy routes, so clearance is a necessity. The power of 6350hp and 120km/h rated speed give it great sectional clearance ability. Thus these locomotives are important for the Indian Railways.

Considering India's population density, and the location of its population centers, and the fact that the rail system is already very heavily used despite the state of most of it, I think it could be a fantastic HSR system, as soon as the country and its people are wealthy enough to afford one.

You should check out the Indian HSR thread in the Indian subforum, the debat around that thing and the number of feasibility studies made CAHSR look like a perfect project.

The present status of the prefeasibility studies for High Speed Rail Projects in the country, corridor-wise, is as under:

1. Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad – The prefeasibility study has been completed

2. Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar – The technical evaluation of the offers has been completed and financial bid is under finalization.

3. Delhi-Agra-Lucknow-Varanasi-Patna – The study is in progress. Consultant has submitted Inception Report, Interim Report No. I and II and Draft Final Report to the Ministry.

4. Howrah-Haldia – The study is in progress. Consultant has submitted Inception Report, Interim Report No. I & II and Draft Final Report to Ministry.

5. Hyderabad-Dornakal-Vijaywada-Chennai – Consultant has been engaged and study is in progress.

6. Chennai-Bangalore-Coimbatore-Ernakulam-Thiruvananthapuram – Technical bids have been evaluated and financial bids are under evaluation. India will need technical and financial cooperation from countries which are already operating High Speed systems, including Japan.

The draft bill for the formation of National High Speed Rail Authority (NHSRA) has already been moved for approval of the Government.

National High Speed Rail Authority will initiate steps for pre-construction activities. No time-frame has been set for it.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri K. H. Muniyappa in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.

PATNA, India (AP) - A stalled train in India got a helpful nudge from hundreds of railway passengers in eastern India, a railway official said Wednesday. The train stalled in the Buxar district of the state of Bihar on Tuesday when an electrical connection snapped, railway spokesman A.K. Chandra said.

The driver then asked the passengers to push the train to the next electricity pole about 60 yards away, where the train was able to restart and resume its journey, he added.

The electric passenger train was traveling between Banahi and Raghunathpur.

India has one the world's largest railway network that carries more than 14 million passengers daily, but railway stations and tracks are often poorly maintained resulting in accidents and a poor safety record.
This actually and honestly seems a bit too far fetched. Even a empty Caboose is not light enough to be pushed, leave alone an entire train.
