It is a well known fact that MGS ALD section is highly congested. ST BRC section has 31 more pair of trains than MGS ALD and yet trains hardly lose their punctuality. Is it due to the controllers or some other factors as well?

Mai saari ki baat nahi kar raha hu,Jo North India jata hai wo via palanpur k raste jaata hai naa k brc aa k and Jo Eastern , northeastern ka freight hota hai usk pass me Ald hi ek option hota hai (maximum case me ) and isk saath me CIC k coal wagons bhi hote hai kaafi.
Aap Jo brc st kaa kah rahe ho Mai bhi manta hi traffic kaafi jyada hai khud Maine 30 40 bar to travel Kia hi hoga us section me but still mgs Ald cnb k controllers pe load kaafi jyada hai as compared to Surat brc.

In support of NCR Controllers: i) CNB-ALD is still not automatic signalling. ii) Too much extraneous effects like mantri or officer/ officer spouse movement in trains, Chain pulling by hawkers at ALD/ CNB causing blocking of platforms, frequent loco failures, minor derailments, fog effect etc.
Against NCR Controllers: i) Poor traffic planning resulting in SFE trains getting stuck behind trains with more stops ii) Trains getting looped for too long in ALD-MGS section for Rajdhani overtake despite the section being under auto signalling. Auto signalling has not led to any improvement in train movement in this section, which is surprising. iii) Utter apathy for passenger trains forcing people to travel in express trains, often in reserved coaches. The recently extended ALD-MGS
pgr (earlier ALD-Chunar pgr) reaches MGS next morning taking about 9-10 hrs between ALD-MGS! They only operate EMUs upto Aligarh properly for fear of mob violence.
It is unjustified to compare Vasai-Vapi-Surat-BRC section with CNB-ALD-MGS section. It is like comparing Michel Schumacker with Narain Kartikeyan. Western Railways even makes Central Railways look bad, that is how good they are. Those who are saying goods trains are less in Western Railways than in NCR don't know anything about Western Railways. The originating freight of Western Railways was about 5.3 million tonnes for Feb, 2017 which is same as the combined originating freight of NCR, NER and NR. One has to watch train movement at BRC with 4 operational platforms or at ST with 3 operational platforms to see the difference with CNB or ALD.

Looks like the entire line was built with no provision for Double Line (& higher MPS?) in the future. With demand for new services on this (potentially) very popular line, need for a FEDL will be felt be very soon and we're back to square 1. When will IR learn to plan with future needs in mind ?!
PS : Awesome Coverage by fellow RFs. One of the best ever for a New Line :)
