How much money charges by Railway for booking of one engine with four buggies

If a shoot requires a train engine and four bogies, the Railways will charge approximately Rs 50 lakh each day. Trains have long been popular in Indian cinema, and the Ministry of Railways appears to have decided to capitalize on this. Starting August 1, special trains for filming would cost at least Rs. 4.5 lakh per day, up from roughly Rs. 2.30 lakh currently.
