Chronicle Reporter, Vidisha Indian Railways provide large number of facilities on Net. Besides PNR status, one can find which platform the Train is coming. They provide Platform Locator, Platform Status enquiry service. But on the other side reality is very different on the Railway Stations. It is often at Vidisha, Basoda, Mandi Bamora Stations , at the announcement of the arrival of train Railway changes the platform. People with their luggage run to the another platform where the train is arriving. Especially when the platform is not conjoined, passengers either run on foot - bridge or they cross railway tract to reach the Platform at earliest possible and before the arrival of the train. Old persons, Heart Patients, Handicapped, Pregnant women, Over Weights who cannot run have no option in these situations.
