I plan to hire a coach sometime during monsoon on Vivek express from CAPE to DBRT and back and perhaps see many more interesting places too. Right now I'm working in Malaysia but planning on coming home. Anyone wish to join me in this endeavor please let me know so we can have a huge group of enthusiasts willing to see the country and share the costs too.
It is very romantic to see the tourist coaches parked in/near yards where passengers cook (if they wish to) and live as if in their own homes.

Shatabdi departs from pf 6 towards chennai and would arrive on pf 6/7.
You can walk back(not loco/engine side) on the same platform towards the end of the platform, and
(1)then take left, walk for about 150mts and turn right you will exit through back gate
(2)then take right, walk till you reach pf 1 and then turn right and walk for about
200-250 mts you will reach exit on the left side main gate(Note:- If Chennai mail is placed on pf 1 then please take back gate as suggested -point(1) above).
Let us know if you need more information?
You can avail free transport to anywhere inside the station for senior citizens and handicapped.

SION station in Mumbai has 4 platforms. I wonder what the reason could be, since only slow trains halt at Sion. Express and long distance trains use a different track altogether.
My question is, what was the reason they might have built 4 platforms, when 1 island platform would have been sufficient (as mentioned, fast trains do not halt at Sion anyway).

Do trains from BSB/ MGS passing through Chennai have a Chennai quota (and vice versa) ? If so, what is normally the quota allocated for trains passing via metro cities?

.."My brother living in Manipal has seen two accidents and one blockade this year due to boulders rolling off in the KR section.." yet another anecdotal evidence. when will you provide something worth actual matter??? i was born and bought up in Konkan and know this region, especially the one where Matsyagandha went down like the back of my hand. doesn't mean i shove it here down the throats of every random person.
People living in that section who decry about nets know even less than Jon Snow. they are the sort of people who think train runs slow because LP is lazy. please don't use their knowledge as a benchmark, they know as much as my cats do about nets, which
is to say nothing much in reality.
There are many people in forum who are very knowledgeable, much more knowledge than i'll ever have, but NONE of them try to pass on their unsourced, unverifiable, anectodal, half-baked pieces of evidence as knowledge, so i'm not demeaning any of them.

Eh? You've touched those nets eh? And do you know those so-called 'nets' are actually metal wires interwoven to form a net? DO NOT pass such flimsy, baseless statements if you don't know what you're talking about.

To those who try to rake up controversy out of this serious topic, esp. 1 or 2 people. I state a very simple fact in layman terms- even if the nets are made of industrial diamond, boulders will continue to fall with alarming regularity.
Scotch brite is also steel, yet it is easily bendable and breakable...the nets used by IR resemble mosquito nets more.

Fine. What about this then?
**"I've traveled reasonably lot on KR and they have huge nylon nets to catch falling rocks. I've touched those nets and they are quite flimsy and do not inspire any confidence. It is quite scary."**
Why post such nonsense by lying that you have touched the nets and that they are made up of nylon and then later object on everyone's post and cry foul? Are you a liar?

The poverty is striking. I don't want to say more about that though, but IR can do much more than just try to introduce trains for the affluent.

Jodhpur Jaisalmer passenger in days of yore. Unscrupulous travel agents are using this picture as Palace on Wheels, whose livery is completely different. Source bing.com and stored on my external HDD quite a while ago. Google is "guessing" this as Palace on Wheels but this is most definitely an Indian train.
