While riding around Goa, chanced upon this location, a fishing trawler jetty, and could spot two trains over the Zuari Bridge.

The electric locomotives are now being painted with the Indian tricolor on its front .
Is this part of any new policy.

These were painted during last I-Day celebrations.
Not the policy.

India extends northeastern broad-gauge network
Tuesday, January 24, 2017



THE expansion of the broad-gauge network in northeast India reached another milestone on January 24, when the first broad-gauge passenger train on the Agartala - Udaipur line in Tripura was flagged off by railways minister Mr Suresh Prabhu via a video link from Dehli

Two passenger services will operate every day except Sunday on the 44.8km line, which extends the national 1676mm-gauge gauge network to the district of Gomati for the first time

Nice! It's very important for transport of goods that they can be transported smoothly and in that sense a single gauge through all of India shortens travel times easily, especially when it's not narrow (and it is really wide). And for passengers as well, removing the urge for people to fly between some cities or becoming faster than travel by road.

Is there a recent map of all broad gauge in India (at least 2015/2016)?

Hello,
I completely agree that Indian Railway is the biggest employer in India. Every year many candidates get selected in Indian Railway Government Job.
& Indian Government is still working very good for Railways betterment.

This is not an official site but info given on this page is more accurate than official website.
Here you can find narrow gauge, meter gauge, broad gauge, electrified, double, double electrified, three-lane, four-lane, gauge conversion, u/c lines, doubling & electried.
This map also a map for Bangladesh Railway.

The 56640/1 Mangalore Madgaon Passenger train is known to be one of the fastest stopping passenger trains in India. Running on the single line route of Konkan Railway, it gets delayed as expected. The only way to cover up these delays is through a reduction in halt time at wayside stations. Minor stations are dispatched within 10-15 seconds whereas major ones are done with in 30-45 seconds. Here's a video that was shot from the moment the train enters a relatively major station along the route, Kundapura, till it departs and accelerates towards its next halt. Shot uncut using a phone camera.

This section is slated for doubling and electrification in the coming years.

CRS inspection has been successfully completed on the Nelamangala-Shravanabelagola section of the new Hassan-Bangalore railway line.

Hassan Bangalore Intercity and Mangalore Bangalore Intercity Express trains are likely to begin operations starting first week of March. This route reduces the distance between the two most important cities of Karnataka state to 340 kilometers.

Yes. It is mandatory now to have the flag on locomotives. New locomotives are being rolled out with flag already on them.

Seen here is a Dahanu Road bound EMU skipping Dahisar raising a dust storm and forcing people to move to safe distance..

Ukshi station in India is unique. In that, it lies in between two long tunnels and also a part of it lies inside a third tunnel. Here's a train going through this station amidst thick winter fog.

Possibly the best retiring rooms on Indian Railways can be found at Vadodara! For 630INR(10US$)/24 hours, this beats any luxury hotel in terms of VFM!!!
