A train operator in Sweden has vowed to name one of its trains Trainy McTrainface in a bid to bring "joy" to all those disappointed when the U.K. overturned a public vote to name a polar research ship with a similar quirky name.

Trainy came in miles ahead when MTR Express, a subsidiary of Hang Seng-listed MTR Corporation which runs trains between Gothenburg and Stockholm, invited Swedes to come up with a name for one of its fleet of new engines.

The move is seen as a public triumph after the British Research Council ignored the results of a public vote to name its new polar research ship Boaty McBoatface last year. The vessel was instead named after British broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

"(This is) news that will be received with joy by many, not just in Sweden," MTR wrote in a statement.

Trainy McTrainface gained 49 percent of votes versus other names including Hakan, Miriam and Poseidon. It is to be unveiled at an official ceremony in Gothenberg this fall and will be joined by other new members of the fleet, Estelle and Glenn.

MTR Corporation is listed on the Hong Kong exchange and has holdings in railway networks in the U.K., Sweden, China and Australia, as well as property developments in Hong Kong.

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong announced on Tuesday a controversial plan to allow mainland officials to enforce Chinese laws inside a Hong Kong train station, an immigration set-up critics say will encroach on the city's autonomy and endanger existing freedoms.

Having established a reputation as an incrementalist who shuns radical change, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has suddenly changed expectations by opting to privatise Air India. This is such a huge public sector giant with so many subsidiaries and lakhs of employees that nobody ever dreamed it could come first in the list of Modi privatisations. Yet that is the case.

Time and again they even have to clean the wind shields — hanging half outside to manage the task — all this because the wipers of most of the trains are faulty.

CHENNAI: Even as encroachers are sitting pretty , and railway administration is unable to evict them due to non-cooperation from the state governmentauthorities, the union railway minister Suresh Prabhu flagged off a 7km line in the city, though the stretch is lying incomplete still.

During his visit to the city last week, Prabhu inaugurated the 7km line between Ennore and Tiruvottiyur in North Chennai. It is part of the Chennai Beach-Attipattu 4th line.But what Prabhu did not know is the fact that the project is still incomplete because Railways is unable to evict encroachers who have built huts and even pucca houses on land meant for laying tracks.

Southern Railway has identified around 750 such structures in six areas across the city , a majority of them in North Chennai, impeding crucial capacity addition projects.These projects are necessary for railways to run more suburban and freight trains as well as speed up existing trains.

Despite repeated requests, state government authorities have not come forward to help railways, senior officials privy to the developments point out.The most recent was a threepage letter written by Vashishtha Johri, general manager of Southern Railway to Tamil Nadu chief secretary Girija Vaidynathan on April 17. A complete list of these encroachments was given in the letter.No reply has been obtained from the state government, railways said. Vaidyanathan did not respond to TOI when asked about the issue.

"It is a political hot-potato.Most of these encroachments are in RK Nagar constituency and hence the police and reve nue department officials don't want to touch it. Whatever eviction has been done is only with the support of Railway Protection Force (RPF)," says a senior railway official.

Top Commentit is the responsibility of State government only and they should do it at their cost , but quicklyN Renganathan

Hutments and other houses have been built on railway land adjoining the tracks in areas like Vyasarpadi, Washermenpet, Minjur, Ennore and Korukkupet. Tracks are used as a site for open defecation by people living in these areas which creates two issues for railways -one, it causes train run-over deaths; and two, the excreta on tracks corrodes the tracks causing safety concerns for trains. Southern Railway is facing a case in National Green Tribunal (NGT) regarding this issue. It has been directed to build a boundary wall to demarcate its territory , but unable to do so due to the hutments.

The residents say they are on this land for many years, some for up to two decades. The state government wants Railways to sanction `100 crore for rehabilitation of slum-dwellers encroaching on railway land. However, this is not acceptable to Railways, as rehabilitation is a state subject, say officials.
