Nice videography there.

More technical stuff, but relating to the modernization of the railway system:
Quote:
Approval of Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) is a Major step taken Towards Train's Safety: Chairman Railway Board

Referring to Train Protection Warning System (TPWS), Shri Vinay Mittal said that with the approval of this system on a stretch of 3300 kilometres to cover the entire high density stations, a major step has been taken towards train’s safety.

Speaking on the occasion, Member Electrical, Railway Board, Shri Kul Bhushan said that to enhance safety by reducing human dependence for verification of clearance of track, track circuiting at more than 850 locations has been provided during the last year and about 1500 additional locations are targeted for completion within next two years. He said that for metropolitan cities such as Mumbai, Indian Railways are considering provisions of Communication Based Trains Control (CBTC) system for running trains at close headways of approximately two minutes to meet the increased commuter traffic requirements.
