Indian Railways: World’s Most Extensive Train Service

]]>

If you live in abroad and desire to tour India then trains could serve you as a cost effective means. Indian Railways has earned international renown of operating world’s largest railway network and extensive train services. Indian railway network operates busiest trains and serves nearly 10+6 million passengers per day. The best part is that trains reach the most remote corner of Indian peninsula while airways and bus services don’t do so. Indian rail tickets are so cost effective, that you can book train tickets online for a 1st class or AC Tier luxury car on Indian trains for your entire family. The rail fare charge is equivalent to the amount of air ticket for one passenger.

Indian Railways began its journey in the year 1853 under British Rule when steam engines where a wonder to the entire world. After independence in 1947 Indian Railway System became fully nationalized under central government with 42 divisions. Today Indian trains run on world’s longest railway network even upto remote villages. Indian Railways has successfully covered rail tracks on an area of 39, 233 miles. It operates more than 15000 trains in all Indian states on daily basis. It is interesting to know that first plan for running trains in India was formulated under the Lord Hardinge in 1944. During this period Indian trains were operated by private rail companies. These companies belonged to business investors from UK.

Most Indian trains till 1853 were luggage trains and were used to carry raw materials and heavy accessories. 1853 was a spectacular year for Indian railway service. The first passenger train was started between Mumbai and Thane during this time. By the year 1880 rail tracks reached to port cities of Chennai and Calcutta. This helped Indian businessmen to enhance their trade within India. By the end of nineteenth century Indian Railways started building rail coaches and locomotives.

Before independence Indian train services were not integrated. Due to the presence of princely rule separate rail system was in existence in states of Rajasthan, Assam and Andhra Pradesh. After 1951 Indian rails were divided into six zones. Electric engines completely replaced steam and diesel locomotives. Today India is operating super fast trains like “Rajdhani Express” and longest distance train like Himsagar Express that runs from Kashmir in the North to KanyaKumari in the south. Indian rail timetable is available at each railway station of India. Passengers can also check an Indian train status at the PNR machines at Indian railway stations.

Edward Somerset ? English Inventor of The World’s First Steam Engine 1653

I though as England has produced so many famous inventors and engineers I thought it may be of interest to write this short article on the world’s first Steam Engine.

Edward Somerset (1601 – 1667) was an English nobleman involved in royalist politics; he was also an inventor. In the book he authored in 1655 of over 100 inventions, the power and applications of what would become the steam engine are clearly described.

Edward Somerset was a Cavalier who supported Charles I in Wales and raised a regiment of horse for him. His campaigning in the West of England and in Wales did not go well.

After a month with his force of over 2,000 troops encamped at Higham outside Gloucester in March 1643, Herbert decided to leave them as he travelled to meet the king at Oxford.

In his absence the entire force surrendered without any exchange of fire, earning it the title “The Mushroom Army”. He was rewarded in 1644, however, with a peerage, being created Earl of Glamorgan and Baron Beaufort, of Caldecote. However, due to irregularities in the letteers patent these titles were not recognized after the Restoration.

Sent to Ireland, he made a false move in concluding a treaty, in great secrecy, on behalf of Charles that was considered to concede too much to the Catholics there; he himself was a Catholic. In extricating himself from that position, he became a close ally of Giovanni Battista Rinuccini and a potential replacement for James Butler as royalist leader.

His plans to bring Irish troops over to England were overtaken by events, and he left for France with George Leyburn. He succeeded his father as Marquess of Worcester in 1646.

He was formally banished in 1649, but after four years in Paris returned to England in 1653. He was discovered, charged with high treason and sent to the Tower of London he was treated leniently by the Council of State and released on bail in 1654. That year he took up again his interest in engineering and inventions, leasing a house at Vauxhall where his Dutch or German technician Kaspar Kalthoff could work. After this he largely avoided politics, and did not press his claims to the various other titles of nobility.

In 1655 he authored a book which consisted of textual descriptions of 100 separate inventions. It was eventually printed in 1663 and included a device described as his “Water-commanding Engine”. Constructed from the barrel of a cannon it was an obvious prototype design for what would later become the steam engine which clearly anticipated the power and applications of that machine.

When Edward died he suggested that a model of his engine should be buried with him. Almost 200 years later in 1861, this prompted Victorian collector Bennet Woodcroft to mount an expedition, on behalf of The Science Museum to the vault of Raglan church, to try and find a model of the invention in Somerset’s tomb. Despite opening the coffin lid and searching thoroughly, no model was found. Woodcroft did, however, return with one of Edward’s fingers as a memento

The London Science Museum has plans of his “Water-commanding Engine” which shows it was a working steam engine for pumping water.

The Chinese call Britain ‘The Island of Hero’s’ which I think sums up what we British are all about. We British are inquisitive and competitive and are always looking over the horizon to the next adventure and discovery.
