A few historic railway photographs around Hubli. These are from scans of the 'Locomotive, Railway carriage and wagon review', which was a periodical published regularly from 1896-1959. A few issues of these periodicals are available completely on Google books. A request has been made by some railfans to make all of the books available completely.
Pic 2 : Steam locomotive workshop at Hubli, circa 1900. Hubli was a premier MG locomotive shed and workshop. The workshop was setup in 1885, and it was the main traction center for the Southern Mahratta railway. In 1908, it became part of the Madras and Southern Mahratta railway. After independence, it belonged initially to the Southern railway and was transferred to the South Central railway in

1966, before eventually coming under the South Western railway. The workshop handled the POH and maintenance of YG and YP class locomotives in later years. Shortly after the formation of SCR, the MG coach workshop at Lallaguda (LGD) was shutdown and all MG coach workshop activities for SCR were transferred to Hubli. After the conversion to BG, the workshop still remains one of the most highly rated workshops in the country.
Pic 1: One of the 4-6-0 standard MG passenger locomotive of the Southern Mahratta railway, homed at Hubli circa 1900. These were the powers for the Bangalore-Pune fast MG mail service.
Pic 3: The Nanjangud-Pune fast mail train, Circa 1907. The mail train which was initially running between Bangalore and Pune, was later extended to run between Nanjangud and Pune, which were the North and South extremes of the Southern Mahratta railway. From 1908, an afternoon intercity (present day 12609/10's predecessor) was started between Madras and Bangalore to connect to this mail train at Bangalore and provide a connection for passengers from Madras to Pune and the Western ghats. The mail departed from Bangalore in the night, and reached Pune on the morning of the 3rd day (about 36 hours journey).
About an year after this photo was taken, the mail train was attached with a dining car as well, as the route had become a favorite one for tourists heading to the western ghats. The coach composition for this train was 2 Guard-cum-third class coaches, 3 third class coaches, a mail-cum-third class coach and a composite 1st-cum-2nd class coach. The coach on the right end (last coach in the train) is the Guard-cum-third class coach, which had a small section reserved for Female 3rd class passengers. The 2nd from the right is a third class coach with separate partitions for luggage and 3rd class European travelers. The next coach,(blocked by the tree in front of it) is mail-cum-third class coach. The white coach in the center is the composite 1st-cum-2nd class coach, with the first class cabins in the center (The door to these cabins is visible in the center) and the 2nd class cabins on either sides. The remaining coaches are pure 3rd class coaches with the leading coach being the Guard coach.

Yes sir. This has happened in the past as well. With such a large user base, it is understood that this is not exactly a private forum, and a strict moderation may not be feasible for you. But it will be helpful if something can be done to guarantee a basic level of security for our posts. For instance, making photos non-downloadable or restricting the download in some way (may be even taking screenshots of it) unless the original poster gives explicit permission to do so.
Getting credit for our knowledge/work is one thing, it is also scary to find out that someone has been quoting our posts on an external website with a large

public coverage without our knowledge.
Please take some steps to avoid such incidents.

The frequency of complaints of this nature has been increasing of late, whereby members complain that their blogs and pictures are being copy/pasted without permission, and posted on Twitter without credit. Such members may complain to Twitter directly about such abusive accounts which use material without permission and without giving due credit.
.
At IRI, we are unable to do anything about the Twitter postings. However, if such accounts are members of IRI, yes, then we can impose sanctions on the IRI Account of the Twitter member.

Hereafter, if you encounter such Twitter abuses, then please immediately report an FM Complaint against any of that members' blogs. Our FMs will thereafter issue SW on that member's account, until he resolves the Complaint.
.
Thanks for everyone's patience.

Thanks for the prompt response! I do understand that strict moderation is not possible for you with such a large userbase.
However, please do consider the feasibility of improving the privacy features. While private posts are secure enough, they are too restrictive and provide no scope for getting new people into a group. It will be good if some feature can be introduced where the person who makes the original post has some kind of control on who is accessing his/her content or the extent to which his/her content is accessible.

For instance, I see on a lot of websites that the 'Right-click' feature is disabled for photos and the only way to download photos is to have some kind of subscription or permission from the owner. If such a feature is provided here, just as a check box when we are uploading photos, then it will be possible to avoid guest users downloading the photos, or restrict regular users from downloading the photos unless the original poster enables it. It is not a foolproof thing, but can at least discourage this to some extent.
It will be really appreciated if something can be done on this front.

I did message him as you might have seen /blog/post/3102892
He has been online.
- No response.
- Neither has he deleted the tweet nor given you credit.
Disappointing.
