TOP 10 TRAINS AROUND THE WORLD

Traveling by train can be a drag - or convert you to rail travel for the rest of your life. Here's our pick of the top 10 trains around the world, rating them on attributes like amenities, comfort, convenient routes, reasonable fares, and technology.
10 TGV, France

The French sense of style extends to train travel and the TGV is an acronym for "train grande vitesse" - or high-speed train -- which can travel at 357 mph while the passenger runs hit 200 mph. Top route: Lorraine - Champagne-Ardenne
Japan Railways Group, Japan

Japan's original 130-mph bullet train of 1964 has inspired imitators, but the country's high-speed trains are still among the fastest and most technologically advanced and are reliable, safe and fast. Passengers aren't treated to the same 361-mph top speed achieved in testing, but 186 mph still isn't bad. Top route: Tokyo - Shin-Osaka
Eurostar, England

There are Eurostar lines throughout the continent and they're some of the best ways to get around. The 1,290-foot trains cruise up to 186 mph in certain areas. But one route stands apart -- it's the trip through the Channel Tunnel, with the journey beginning at London's historic St. Pancras International train station and ending in Paris. Top route: London - Paris
ICE/NachtZug, Germany

Deutsche Bahn keeps passengers moving by day with their efficient and popular InterCityExpress, better known as ICE. For overnight trips, there's the inviting NachtZug, or Night Train, which is a refreshing trip. Top route: ICE "Sprinter": Berlin - Frankfurt; NachtZug: Hagen - Prague
TAV, Italy

Many Italians like traveling by car or plane but trains are gaining popularity beyond intra-city use and considerable efforts are being made to emulate and connect with Europe's finest. Top route: Rome - Florence
Russian Railways, Russia


If you have a lot of time on your hands, you can sit on a train for almost 6,000 miles on the Trans-Siberian Railway otherwise you can opt for a shorter trip to go between the Russian areas you'll want to cover on a visit. Top route: St. Petersburg - Moscow

4 KTX, South Korea


The Korea Train eXpress is a modern take on The Little Engine That Could. After the initial Seoul to Pusan route was finished in 2004, passenger numbers were short of expectations but there's progress with line expansion and ridership on the rise. Top route: Seoul - Pusan

AVE, Spain


Aan acronym for Alta Velocidad Espanla -- or Spanish High Speed -- service from Madrid to Seville is so consistent that fares are refunded if the train arrives more than five minutes late. Top route: Madrid - Seville

Great Southern Rail Limited, Australia


It's the best way to span the continental coast between Sydney and Perth and see a lot in-between with two of their three routes multi-day affairs, but with top accommodation and scenery.

VR, Finland

Finland is one of those countries that just works; it's exceptionally clean, efficient and trouble-free and the state-owned VR Group is no different. When you leave Helsinki, VR is probably the best way to take in the countryside.

Many divisions against introducing new trains in Rail Budget


New Delhi, Feb 5 (PTI) A key Railway division is not in favour of introduction of new trains in the upcoming Rail Budget saying any further increase will "seriously jeopardise punctuality and safety" of operations.
Draft of Memo to be submitted to DRM on 24th Feb 2012



To,
The Divisional Railway Manager,
_______________________
_______________________

Sir,

                             Sub: - Proposed “Sit in Fast” program by our CWC        members from 10:00hrs to 18:00hrs  in New                Delhi on 14th March 2012    and           Rally/Dharna on 15th March 2012

      With deep regret, the Association submits that despite of the repeated assuration, the Railway Administration could not resolve our issues or Ministry of Labour and Employment did also not sent our case to Industrial Tribual for Adjudication following this assuration by the Railway Board to Ministry of Labour and Employment that our case was under active consideration at different levels of Railway Board result of which a serious dissatisfaction and resentment prevails amongst the Loco Running Staff.

      However, our CWC members once again will “Sit in Fast” on 14th March 2012 from 10:00hrs to 18:00hrs and Rally / Dharana on 15th March 2012 at Jantar – Mantar / New Delhi in protest of abnormal delay in resolving our issues and the Loco Running Staff of this Division are in fully support of this action.

      The Loco Running Staff therefore request your honour to convey our sentiment to Railway Board, and also to Ministry of Labour and Employment and use your good office so that our issues are resolved without any further delay and Industrial peace is maintained in the Railways.

                                                      Thanking you,

                                                                                                         Your’s sincerely


                                                                                                         (                         )
                                                                                                    Divisional Secretary
