HEADQUARTERS : NEW DELHI, INDIA. 24X7X365 OPERATIONS. SLOGAN : “LIFELINE OF THE NATION” Indian Railways- An Introduction : Indian Railways- An Introduction The plan for a rail system in India was first put in the year 1832, In 1844, Two new railway companies were created and the East India Company was asked to assist them. investors from the UK and raw materials from the India led to the rapid creation of a rail system over the next few years. Slide 5: In a way, the railway station has an interesting history. It started off as a single pole among a number of trees and has developed through history into a well defined platform with roof. One can also notice today that the station actually starts off as a platform with a roof which transforms into a complex building, cinema hall, shopping mall & what not; and all these due to the technological advancements, social changes & changes in the economical structure of the countries. Slide 6: One of most important aspects of a railway terminal is its design. Always, the design of a station building connects the viewer with the period in history, when it was built. In some of the interior regions of countries, the terminal was made to look like a house, fortress or church etc. One may notice that the form of the railway station and use of materials and finishes and the visual aspects are all dependent upon the country, its climatic conditions, social structure economical condition etc. For instance, in third world countries, stations have never been designed until recently. They have developed on their own, with the changes in functional requirements. On the contrary, in countries like USA and Britain, most of the stations have been designed by qualified / specialized people. Slide 7: 16th April, 1853...............The Beginning The first railway on Indian sub-continent ran over a stretch of 21 miles from Bombay to Thane. The idea of a railway to connect Bombay with Thane, Kalyan and with the Thal and Bhore Ghats first occurred to Mr. George Clark, the Chief Engineer of the Bombay Government, during a visit to Bhandup in 1843. The formal inauguration ceremony was performed on 16th April 1853, when 14 railway carriages carrying about 400 guests left Bori Bunder at 3.30 pm "amidst the loud applause of a vast multitude and to the salute of 21 guns." Slide 8: The first passenger train steamed out of Howrah station destined for Hooghly, a distance of 24 miles, on 15thAugust, 1854. Thus the first section of the East Indian Railway was opened to public traffic, inaugurating the beginning of railway transport on the Eastern side of the sub-continent. In south the first line was opened on 1st July, 1856 by the Madras Railway Company. It ran between Veyasarpandy and Walajah Road (Arcot), a distance of 63 miles. In the North a length of 119 miles of line was laid from Allahabad to Kanpur on 3rd March 1859. The first section from Hathras Road to Mathura Cantonment was opened to traffic on 19th October, 1875. Slide 9: These were the small beginnings which is due course developed into a network of railway lines all over the country. By 1880 the Indian Railway system had a route mileage of about 9000 miles. INDIAN RAILWAYS, the premier transport organization of the country is the largest rail network in Asia and the world’s second largest under one management. Indian Railways runs around 11,000 trains everyday, of which 7,000 are passenger trains. Slide 10: 7566 – Locomotives 37,840 - Coaching vehicles 222,147 - Freight wagons 6853 - Stations 300 – Yards 2300 – Good sheds 700 - Repair shops 1.54 million - Work force INDIAN RAILWAY MEANS: : INDIAN RAILWAY MEANS: EVERY DAY PEOPLE GOING FOR THEIR JOB WE HAWKERS AUTORIKSHAW- WALA, RIKSHA WALA RAILWAY WORKERS AND Slide 12: RETAILER MIGRATED PEOPLE FROM VILLAGE RAILWAY LABOURER POLICE Slide 13: EVERY TYPES OF PEOPLE : OLD, DISABLED, PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES - VILLAGE, URBAN ETC AND MORE Slide 14: TOGETHER, WE ALL MAKE IT COMPLETE ARCHTECTURAL CONCEPT : RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INDIAN MASSES AND RAILWAY : ARCHTECTURAL CONCEPT : RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INDIAN MASSES AND RAILWAY According to my opinion in common word for all type of architectural work or design : it should reflect the society, the thinking of the people living there, designing our building according to the Indian modern requirements or “the design according to the Indian masses”) THE STATION LIFECYCLE : : THE STATION LIFECYCLE : AS THE ASSET OF SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS, STATION ARE ON PUBLIC DISPLAY AND POPULARLY REFLECT UPON THEIR OWNERS AND OPERATORS.(i.e. GOVT. AND US). CONSUMERS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY SOPHISTICATED TOO, DEMANDING HIGHER STANDARDS OF SERVICE TOGATHER WITH BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY. STATION, THEN MUST POSSESS THE AMENABLE TO CHANGE. STATIONS MUST BE ROBUST AND STRAIGHT FORWARD TO MAINTAIN, SO THAT THEY POSSES THE DESIRED LONGEVITY AND REFLECT WELL UPON THE RAILWAYS USING THEM. NATURE OF BUILDING : : NATURE OF BUILDING : “WE SHAPE OUR BUILDINGS, AND AFTERWARDS THEY SHAPE US” WINSTON CHURCHILL THIS IS AS TRUE of railway station as for other building types, There is no such thing as a building disconnected from the lives of its users. INDIAN RAILWAY STATION BUILDINGS : INDIAN RAILWAY STATION BUILDINGS In India station buildings vary, some are no more than a collection of old wagons and coaches, while there are others as outstanding in design, as magnificent in construction and as well provided in ordinary comforts for passengers, as anywhere in the world. The average railway station in India consists of the large brick structure providing accommodation for offices, and a waiting hall for passengers. Slide 21: In addition, according to the importance of the station or the pressure of passenger traffic, provision is made for separate waiting rooms for passengers of various classes, and for men and women, and for refreshment rooms and restaurants,. The platforms, covered or uncovered, vary in number and in dimensions, Separate station offices, platforms, and sheds are generally provided to deal with goods traffic. Overhead bridges and in recent times underground subways enable passengers to cross from one platform to the other.
