This article has Star potential. It’s well written with great information. However, for Star status it needs both to be entirely complete and to perfectly match the Manual of style. If you see how it can be improved, please plunge forward or point it out on the talk page.

Is it really necessary to split this out from the main India article? Jpatokal 10:06, 21 December 2006 (EST)

And the stuff about future monorails etc belongs on Wikipedia, not here. Jpatokal 01:38, 23 December 2006 (EST)
There is an article Rail Travel in Europe, so I suppose we should let this one be. and the stuff 'bout future monorails should come. After all, once it's completed, wikitravellers might use it themselves. Upamanyuwikitravel 08:16, 7 January 2007 (EST)

The picture of a train crossing over a large viaduct. This is NOT an Indian Railways train. Looks like Santa Fe freight trains which run in the USA. User:Qmsarge 11:30, 19 January 2007 (IST)

It is. Kathgodam, Nainital. A narrow gorge train run by NR.

I took the photo myself. Upamanyuwikitravel 06:01, 19 January 2007 (EST)

And a nice photo it is :) I concur, the mountain narrow gauge trains look different than most you see in the rest of the country. Is this a cargo train Upamanyu? Cacahuate 06:30, 19 January 2007 (EST)
Yeah, it is probably a freight train. how did you guess?? And you're right, the narrow gauge mountain trains are v different from the standard Broad Guage trains.Upamanyuwikitravel 05:10, 21 January 2007 (EST)
well, mostly cause it ain't blue! yikes, just got off one this morning, feel like i live on those blue things... anyhoo... take care. ::: Cacahuate 12:34, 21 January 2007 (EST)
Actually, the photograph was taken in Canada by David R. Spencer. See WikiPedia:Image:Eastbound over SCB.jpg. I've removed it and tagged it for deletion as a probable copyvio. JYolkowski 13:20, 21 January 2007 (EST)


So, I'm going to nominate this for deletion unless somebody can come up with a compelling argument to the contrary. Right now this has serious overlap with the main India article and looks more like a Wikipedia article on "Trains in India" than an actual guide for travellers. (For the record, I don't much like Rail travel in Europe either, and think Japan is a better model to copy.) Jpatokal 10:28, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

OK, but please MoS-ify and merge into India#By train -- Upamanyuwikitravel( Talk )( Travel ) • 08:25, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

Online booking FAQ

Could someone who has booked online recently come up with a FAQ? I haven't made an online booking ever, so can't do it, but hear that there are numerous issues (where to send the ticket, credit card issues, stand on one leg when pressing a key,...)--Wandering 17:41, 17 October 2007 (EDT)

Like it now? :) SBC-YPR 13:59, 12 July 2008 (EDT)

External link removal

I removed the above link. It seems to just cover info that we would want here at Wikitravel. Accordingly I believe it should be removed under Wikitravel:External links. It was also placed under a newly created "External link" header - which are banned here. -OldPine 08:02, 23 February 2008 (EST)
