 INTRODUCTION

The First Edition was launched on 22nd Dec 1998 as "Konkan Railway - The Resource Page". Keeping with growth of the site and information, it has now assumed a more dynamic name and purpose of being a Internet Resource Center - with much more on offer. This page is thhe result of observation, research and findings on the net. It forms a summary of the major developments in recent time and serves as an useful reference page for anyone who needs more info on this great project, indeed one of independent India's largest engineering feat and transportation wonder. The site seeks to enlighten the reader about the railway in a different way, presenting a collage of information, as it is.

I have made this attempt to compile related vast and diverse information and bring it together on a common accessible platform. I hope above all that this work is able to satisfy the curiosity of the reader about the KR system and bring new enlightenment. The site is non commercial and is totally for information. Credit is due to the original sources of the information. Links to these sites are provided wherever available.

For frequent visitors to the site, since the maintenance of this site is done only as a hobby, there will occassional delays in posting/updating content. But each page will mention the date of last update so that the reader gets a idea on how recent the information is.
