(1) Rajdhani, Shatabdi & Durontos are tainted with flexifares and as long as this stain persisits they shall never be the most successful.
(2) Garib Raths shall shall always be favourite as they facilitate most economical ac travel.
(3) Tejas, Gatimaan being super premium trains cannot find much prominence. They can have very limited existence and their success/ patronage is always doubtful.
(4) Humsafar
may be successful if not kept in ambit of Flexifares even with 20% extra base fare, provided they are accorded high priority/speed like Rajdhanis.
(5) SF trains have a very bright future and shall be carrying maximum number of paxs on IR. They are likely to have very high patronage, Maximum number of coaches and with profitability for IR. After conversion to LHB in a decade or so, their importance/ utility shall be further enhanced.
(6) AC SF trains are an epitome of poor financial decision making of IR. It is expected that IR will grow wise in near future and desist from announcing new AC SFs. All the ACSFs must be converted into SF train by removing generator cars and attaching non ac trains to ensure maximum paxs, occupancy & revenue.
(7) Nothing can be said about Antyoday with certainity. If fare is same as other trains, then it is yet another financial blunder of IR. And if fare is higher for the additional facilities (Pax amenities, speed), then it is OK.

Basic funda is to run trains with maximum permissible coaches to serve maximum number of people and ensure good revenue collection at the same time.
It is better to concentrate on ACSF trains which have maximum probability of 100% occupancy.
Operate GR train/Tejas/Humsafar if there is traffic for 24ICF/22LHB coach train with 130kmph speed and high priority. There is no point in running premium (fully ac) trains with less number of coaches.
may be about 10-15 routes for GR, about 10 routes for Humsafar, or about 5 routes for Tejas which can fulfil this criteria, where such trains should be operated.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
