What Is The Meaning Of These Short Forms GNWL,TQWL,RLWL, RSWL,RQWL,PQWL,RLGN ,PNR,WL,RAC in Indian Railways?

This short form on the ticket means General Waiting List. In the ticket, it is written when the
passenger starts the journey from the starting station or nearby stations of a route. This code is the most common in the waiting list and is the most likely ticket to be confirmed.
RLWL or Remote Location Waiting List category tickets are issued for stations that fall somewhere between the train starting station and the last stoppage. These are called intermediate stations, which are important towns and cities on that route. These tickets are kept on separate priority. The probability of their being confirmed depends on the confirmed ticket canceled for the station with the remote location. Remote location stations prepare their chart two to three hours before the train leaves. Waiting tickets in this category are the least likely to be confirmed.
A pooled quota waiting list is issued for a small number of small stations. Normally, this quota is operated from the starting station of a route and during that journey there is only one pooled quota. It usually gives waiting tickets to passengers who travel from the starting station of the train route to a nearby station, intermediate station or two intermediate stations.
The remote location general waiting list is written when the passenger books the ticket and there is a waiting list quota, remote location waiting list. That is, after the ticket is booked, the remote location waiting list is renamed to Remote Location General Waiting List.
Roadside station waiting list is written on the ticket when berths or seats are booked from the originating stations to the roadside station or stations near it. In this type of waiting ticket, the possibility of confirmation is also very less.
A ticket is sent to the request waiting list when it is booked from an intermediate station to another intermediate station and if it does not fall under the normal quota, remote location quota or pooled quota.
The immediate quota waiting list was earlier called CKWL. It was renamed in 2016. Actually, TQWL is the waiting list for the immediate quota. If the confirmed ticket for Tatkal quota is canceled before the chart is made, the TQWL ticket automatically comes up on the priority list. Reservation Against Cancellation (RAC) tickets are not offered in this category.
During the preparation of charts, the general waiting list is given priority over the immediate waiting list, so tickets with an immediate waiting list are less likely to be confirmed. In such a situation, wait till the last time when there is a ticket in the immediate waiting. If the ticket is not confirmed, it will automatically be canceled. Later his refund will come.
Everyone must have heard the PNR number. Whether it is about ticket checking or waiting check, PNR number is the most important part of your ticket. This number is on the top left side of the reservation ticket. This number is unique and is called Passenger Name Record Number. This ticket is yours and you are traveling on it. This thing is ascertained from this number. The PNR number of your ticket is also with the TC which is used to check your ticket.
RAC means Reservation Angst Cancellation in which the passenger is given a seat to sit.After filling the normal quota seats, passengers are placed in the RAC.If any confirmed seat is canceled in the normal quota, the seat whose number comes first in the RAC is confirmed.When the TTE checks passengers in the train, the remaining seats of the passengers who have not arrived will be allotted to RAC passengers.TTE is responsible for allotting vacant seats to RAC passengers according to the chart's priority order.A passenger on a RAC ticket cannot demand a full seat or Sleep.RAC tickets can be canceled up to half an hour before the train starts. After this, no refund is given for canceling.If more than one family is issued an e-ticket, out of which some people have confirmed ticket and some have RAC, then according to the terms and conditions, a full refund is given on the confirmed ticket. But all this should be half an hour before the train journey starts.If you have an online RAC ticket and a reservation chart has been created, then you will have to fill the TDR online for refund.
I have added as much information as I had and I have written the information that I did not know by watching it on youtube and if there is any mistake, please point out the mistake.

What Is The Role Of Traveling Ticket Examiners In Indian Railways?

Indian Railways, the world's third largest railway network, carries more than three million passengers a day.More than fifteen thousand trains run in Indian Railways every day,Indian Railways appoints ticket examiners on platforms and in trains to check the tickets of railway passengers.So let's see what the work of this ticket examiners......
are many tasks besides ticket checking mainly by ticket inspectors...
*The duties of a ticket inspector are as follows*
1)Make sure to no one travels without a ticket on the Mail Express.
2)The sleeper coach TTEs are required to report for duty half-an-hour before the scheduled departure of the train.
3)The ticket inspector must have his / her railway identity card, badge, proper uniform.
4)It is the duty of the TTE to allot berths/seats, which are vacant, to passengers at intermediate stations on realization of fare/surcharge as per rules on first come first served basis or according to the priority on the waiting list if such a list is kept at the station.
5)Make sure no one else is traveling in the seat reserved for women and the disabled.
6)He shall pay prompt attention to all complaints from passengers in regard to non-working of fans, lights, lamps, etc, and take necessary remedial action to get them rectified.
7)Take care of that no other passenger travels in an air-conditioned coach.
8)If any person is found traveling without a ticket, the appropriate surcharge / penalty should be recovered from him or the person should be charged under Indian Railways Act 137 and handed over to the GRP/RPF police.
9)The TTEs carry blank FIR forms for making them available to the passengers in case of any incident of theft of luggage, etc. Such forms duly filled in be handed over to the next GRP Post at the scheduled stoppage for further action in the matter.
The first photo is of me when I was caught without a ticket in “First Class” by the ticket inspector and the receipt of the fine recovered from me.

What is the mechanism that stops the train when pulling the chain?
When you look in between two coaches you will see the coaches are coupled with the coupler, and there are two black pipes below the coupler. It continues from engine to rear of the train. One of those is Feed pipe, the other is Break pipe. Why? The feed pipe is connected with the engine's MR reservoir which maintains 5kg per sq cm air pressure from engine to rear to keep the breaks of coaches in release condition. The other the break pipe which exhaust the air pressure either it is applied by the driver or a passenger pulls the alarm chain. As soon as any of the one happens
break pipe pressure drops below 5kg per sq cm and break applies. If it is done by the driver instantly he will create 5kg pressure in feed pipe and feed pipe will feed the break pipe as much air pressure exhausted by the driver, and break will release, train will move freely. You must have experienced that during your journey, sometimes it is slow, and again normal speed.

Now, when someone pulls the alarm chain what happens. At the end of every coaches on top you will see a mechanism. Actually that is a valve, known as Clappet Valve. It is connected with the brake pipe. When someone pulls the chain this velvet opens and air pressure exhausts from break pipe. Since it is done from a coach, driver of the train can not maintain break pipe pressure required 5kg per sq cm from engine. So how to set. When the chain is pulled, Clappet Valve opens air pressure releases through the valve with a big hissssing sound. Until the valve is closed the break pipe pressure will not built up to the required and train will not move. Look at the valve, you will see a steel wire is hanging with a wooden handle. Staff of the train will come , will pull the steel wire and the valve will be closed. Hissing sound will stop. Within minutes feed pipe, and break pipe will maintain required air pressure, Breaks will be released and enjoy your onward journey.

What is the difference between Railway Track and Railway Line?

Actually in normal view there is no major difference but in inner means there is difference. I am try to explain. the Word Line meaning in dictionary that “ a row of closely spaced dots will look a continuous line” . A line can't take you a destination. And now track means in dictionary “ A path” . A path give you a destination. So in my think as railway line taken to a destination, railway line is treated as railway
track. Kindly correct me if I am wrong.
