The volume both these handle is just unimaginable.
The Indian Railways - I simply marvel the reservation system of the Railways. It was implemented in the early 90's, if I remember right, using a State-of-the-Art VAX system. Today, reservation offices that are well connected exist in every corner of the country. I hear that the system is pretty stable too. I am not sure how the 'Internet Reservation' works, but it's amazing to see this feature implemented ( Has it been hacked anytime ?).
Every Indian should be proud of the Techno Savvy Indian Railways. Just imagine the havoc it would cause if the reservation system fails !!
So, today, when I read this , I had to write about the Indian Railways!
TAMBARAM: Commuters, who on Friday travelled by the brand new EMU rake fitted with Global Positioning System-based information display boards, in each of the nine compartments, welcomed the “user friendly” initiative of Southern Railway.
They wanted similar boards to be installed in all suburban and long distance trains as well. The Tambaram–Chennai Beach local (B 26) EMU left Tambaram station at 7.56 a.m on Friday, without any fanfare or flagging off ceremony.
