Practically Ahmedabad had been the capital of Gujrat and can be called a parent city of the Gandhinagar capital city, which is a well planned new capital complex created at outskirts of the congested parent city (Ahmedabad).
If ADI is not capital og Gujrat, then Raipur is also not the capital of Chhatisgarh, it is Naya Raipur, which too has been created as well planned capital complex at outskirts of Raipur.

108 years of Electric operations on IR~   2514 blog posts
Re# 2205741-96            Tags   Past Edits
Quite a long post here. Bear with me. :)
I said KK was an exception as it mostly skirted on the boundary of the state instead of going smack dab through the middle of the state like Kerala or AP. I just mentioned in case somebody was ready to nitpick and tell me that KK covers only RC and GR on the boundary of the state and doesn't pass much through the state (People have asked such paranoid questions earlier. If you dig deep enough in this forum, there were posts where people would question - to quote them - "why KK and TN are named after the state when they barely have any run in the state?". I didn't want
...
more...
to write another long post answering that question again.)
"For no 30, 40 halt trains impress them" - True, many people go gaga over fast, non-stop trains. But that doesn't mean that they look down on trains with more halts. My own favorite train is the absolute definition of a crawler for it's route (17643/44) and It will still be my most favorite train even if I, like other RFs, call the Mumbai Raj as 'King' or just fan-worship some "legendary" train on IR and you can find no dearth of such RF's here on the site. We love trains as much, irrespective of their stops, loco links or speed.
I have mentioned that same thing in my post, that the demands of the intermediate regions have changed, and that was why they ended up with halts based on requirement. There was no question of 'losing prestige' or something silly like that because of additional halts. A train's prestige is in how well it serves the passengers it's supposed to serve, not in having some gimmicks - Something in which all four are doing quite good.
The TN did not escape because of GT. All of the big four still have more or less the same halts in the common part of their runs (ET-NDLS/NGP-NDLS). They mainly ended up with extra halts in the parts of their routes that are exclusively served by them. Until the mid-nineties, even the GT did not have too many halts and at the time TN was inaugurated, GT had even fewer halts. The Dakshin was running for a very long time and yet, the AP still got additional halts as it was passing through several important towns in her home state. The KK and Kerala got several halts in Maharashtra, AP etc as they also had to provide a connection from KA/KL to these intermediate locations in addition to a Delhi connection. The TN on the other hand had neither of these requirements. It had no other important place in Tamil nadu to serve, and neither did people need it for traveling to AP as there were many trains going to AP (None of the three-AP/TN/KL had any significant change in halts beyond NGP).
TN and it's sisters were the favorites of the railways and their zones, because they ushered in a new trend. Fast, non-stop runs skipping major places is a common thing now, but back then these were among the first ones to receive such priority and have such ruthless runs barring the 2 Rajdhani's. Today, because of rapid development, we need trains that cater to more people . But whatever aura was created around their 'lack of stops' was well justified in the days when they were inaugurated.

1. "that doesn't mean that they look down on trains with more halts" - May be not you, but you can't sum up for all - here is one who has absolute disdain for members who voted for KK - /blog/post/2205741

2. I don't know why you brought up 'losing prestige' word within quotes, I never used it. I believe all trains serve all equally - /blog/post/2205741

3. "The TN on the other hand had neither of these requirements. It had no other important place in Tamil nadu to serve, and neither did people need it for traveling to AP as there were many trains going to AP" -
Serving is just not helping the state's people to go to AP.
Serving also is just not transporting people of that state to Delhi.
But... it is also on the - reverse direction - helping people from other places beyond AP, NGP to come to Chennai. In that aspect GT helps out TN.
Take Mathura Junction or Bina Junction for example: if GT wasn't there, I am sure that political/people pressure would have been there to give stop for TN at these places. Whereas KK has no back-up so it has to give stops at Bina and Mathura to help people come to Bengaluru or vice versa.

Antyodaya is the only premium fare branded train introduced by IR which is bound to give heavy losses even on 100% occupancy! Where as HS, Tejas, UDAY, Gatimaan, Mahanmana are set to give profits on 100% occupancy. It is just because all of its paxs belong to heavily subsidised class!
-
Antyoday trains (which are supposed to be long distance trains) should be made multi class train with 22 coaches including the following apporximate composition:
GEN
...
more...
5-10 coaches
SL 5-10 coaches
ACIII 2-7 coaches
ACII 1-3 coaches
PC 1coach
Power Car 2 coaches
-
* Introduction of ac coaches shall drastically improve the revenue generation, & make the Antyoday train profitable.
* improved/ upgraded LHB coaches and 10-15% extra fare above express train fares like current fare of Antyoday should be retained without any provision flexi fares.
* Rajdhani type speed and priority so that they are amongst fastest on the route. People shall readily pay 15% premium for speed and better facilities/ aesthetics.
* Success of these trains with high patronage and decent profits is almost guaranteed if operated on proper routes and time slots, as paxs of all the classes shall have the option to avail this train
-------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------
Above was a practical solution in current circumstances,
However, the best option should be to study and construct a new type of Jan-ACIII LHB SG coaches with same layout as SL coaches (80 berths per coach) and competitively price them at 1.5-1.8 times the SL class and run Antyoday with 22 coaches on long routes with following type of coaches:
GEN 2-8 coaches
SL 5-12 coaches
JanACIII 5-12 coaches
ACIII 1-3 coaches
ACII 1-3 coaches
PC 1 coach

KSK running via RC along with halts at Raichur, Yadgir.
I also want to see YPR-KCG triweekly running via TK,ASk,CTA,BAY, RC with E-loco from GTL to SC. I have seen people catching even Tata-YPR exp via SC from Yadgir to Chitradurga which has very odd timings & runs just weekly. A triweekly connecting these places will surely help the poor.
