This route will be useful for IT Professionals to travel from South Kolkata (Parnasaree, Taratala, New Alipore, Tollygunje, Bansdroni, New Garia, etc.) to satellite townships' IT Hubs like Salt Lake Sector - 5 and Rajarhat New Town Action Area - 1, 2 and probably 3 too.
.
Recent news reports suggest that Infosys is interested to set up its Kolkata Campus in New Town Action Area 3 plot. At the moment, there's only 1 AC Bus of Route AC4A run by the WBTC (CSTC Wing) that connects South Kolkata's Parnasree to Sapoorji Estate in Action Area - 3. But this

last Sapoorji Bus Terminal also seems to be quite distant from the Chotto Chandpur Area where Infosys may set up its building. At the moment, the transport connectivity between New Town's Action Areas and South Kolkata is very poor !!!

The front facade of our office i.e.Kolkata Airport Stg Div is set to be demolished for construction of one more flyover for ease of metro operation. Already DDC BNBA EMU services have been stopped & OHE removed because this section is set to be converted into Metro corridor. Our office is already ready with alternate entry exit point constructed behind Airport Authority of India complex.

Sir, I really wonder that why didn't the EMU services run by ER attract a great bulk of commuters from Airport Station to other parts of Kolkata City ? Let's hope that the Kolkata Metro attracts some people from New Garia, Sector-5, New Town, etc. towards Airport side :)

Why such poor condition of this line? Is it due to terrain or lack of maintenance?

Kalighat-Falta Railway

Kalighat Falta Railway connecting Gholeshapur in Behala to Falta was opened on 28 May 1917 and was extended a further 0.92 miles (1.48 km) to Kalighat, now Majherhat in West Bengal on 7 May 1920. The railway was built in 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) gauge and total length was 26.95 miles (43.37 km).[18]

KFR line was the first in India to use three brand new 2-6-2 side tank AK16 locomotives, built in November 1916 by W. G. Bagnall Ltd. of the Castle Engine Works at Stafford in England. They entered service with KFR in February, 1917. The 'AK' in the name stood for 'Ahmedpur-Katwa'. They were also known as the 'Delta Class' engines (since they were originally ordered by the Egyptian Delta Light Railways but were more successful in India) and they were very successful and a lot many were used in the following years till 1953 when the last order was placed. One of the 1916 built Bagnall locomotives has been preserved by the Phyllis Rampton Narrow Gauge Railway Trust at the Vale of Rheidol Railway in the UK.[18]

A few years after independence, due to increasing losses, the KFR was closed in 1957. The land where the tracks used to be was used to construct a road, the James Long Sarani, in Behala

No problems with any locomotive of IR. All r good.
The main thing is not the locomotive alone...main is the coaches that form the rake which is pulled by the locomotive. If you form a rake with all 1997, 1998 made coaches which r nearing retirement and you give a WAP7 or other high power locomotive and if u want to pull that rake like a Rajdhani exp speed of say 120 -130 kmph, an Accident is waiting to occur then. You can give a WAP7 to such train but speed has to be limited then. Yes WAP7 has many features i am not going yo that , and i am also not a locomotive expert. So, as a layman,

According to me Coaches have to be fit. It is the coaches that is pulled by the engine and coaches not good, then give whatever high power engines no use. And also the Railway tracks have also to be that good. All together matter.
