Railways were first introduced to India in 1853 from Bombay to Thane. In 1951 the systems were nationalized as one unit, the Indian Railways, becoming one of the largest networks in the world. IR operates both long distance and suburban rail systems on a multi-gauge network of broad, metre and narrow gauges. It also owns locomotive and coach production facilities at several places in India and are assigned codes identifying their gauge, kind of power and type of operation. Its operations cover twenty four states and three union territories and also provides limited international services to Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

The Anubhuti trains: Indian comfort

NOTE
-Plush upholstery, designer toilets, diffused lighting, better ergonomics, LCD screens, personalized pantry — welcome to the world of 'Anubhuti' , an ambitious initiative by the railways to target the fast-growing affluent class by offering comforts and amenities never experienced before on Indian tracks.

-Anubhuti, which in English means an experience, promises to deliver more than what the Railways currently offers even on executive and first-class coaches

-The name, Anubhuti, was chosen over words like 'Super Deluxe' and other such terms to convey a "personal Indianised touch" to the experience.

-Prototypes of plush designer coaches have been stationed near the New Delhi railway station area

-Railway minister Pawan Bansal said the idea is to provide an excellent ambience and modern facilities and services through Anubhuti.
Agrees railway board member Keshav Chandra: "The idea is to try and give an all-new experience, a type of service never experienced before on Indian Railways."

-Chandra said Anubhuti coaches will offer more leg space and avoid crowding. "We plan to have a seating for only around 40 passengers on the Anubhuti, against the 50-plus seats on the executive class coaches and 78 seats on normal coaches."

-The railways plans to have the first set of Anubhuti coaches on the Shatabdi by October, and gradually attach them to the Rajdhani.

-"To begin with, we will look at routes like Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Lucknow, Delhi-Amritsar and Delhi-Jaipur. Gradually, we will grow beyond these to longer-haul routes," an official involved with the project said.

-A coach of the Anubhuti will cost the Railways an additional Rs 30-35 lakh more for adding luxury fitments.
