Although an old organisation, Indian railways had reinvented itself many times to be relevant in the present day. The first trains were steam engines which ran between Mumbai, then called as Bombay to Thane. The railways modernised with the passage of time as it was visible with the adoption of Diesel engines which were more efficient and faster. Then the railways had also moved on to the electric trains as they were non-polluting and easy to start and stop. These were but some of the modernisation efforts that were taken up by the railways. Even on the rails, the olden narrow gauge, gave way to meter gauge and now broad gauge is the standard line that is being laid all over the country.
However the narrow gauge exists in the hilly regions like Shimla-Kalka railways and metre gauge exists in the Ooty or Nilgiri railway line. These are rightly declared as the UNESCO world heritage sites as they run on the steam engines that were brought to the country over 150 years ago. Today, the modernisation efforts of the railways is far reaching and introduction of bio-toilets that utilises only a little of water, electrification of all compartments and coaches, advanced security features in the coaches to prevent mishaps are only a few to start with. However not all is rosy in the picture of railways. Indian railways suffer from a plethora of problems like poor collection of expenses due to wastage of resources and due to a large number of ticketless travels by people.
Moreover pillaging of trains is an inherent problem as people damage or steal things from the trains. There are also incidents of people stealing the railways lines and selling them or using them for iron. The safety features of railway is yet to up to the international standards and the convenience that we get in the indigenous trains are nowhere near the services that are being offered worldwide. In short, even as Indian railways has many feathers on its cap, it needs to be improved.
