In the 1990's all south bound trains from ADI via BSR-PUNE were hauled by AC electric locos till BSR and changed to DC locos till PUNE.
All trains SHOULD use electric locos where ever traction is available so that that IR can save millions on fuel! In any case trains most of the time run late and additional 15 minutes of loco change time vs cost saving should not be a reason. The additional costs saved should be distributed as bonus to all IR staff and spent on improving / maintanence infrastructure. BRC-PNVL, ADI-PUNE/DD should be the first priority for IR.

Sep 13 2016 (20:37)   Railways ready to offer discounts to frequent travelers; to launch customer loyalty programme

In line with its mission to transform its services, Indian Railways is planning to bring customer loyalty programme for frequent train travellers. Though details of the plan are unclear yet, reports attributing to senior Railways official, have confirmed the idea of charting of a customer loyalty programme for frequent travellers.
The rail carrier has suffered immensely due to stagnant freight and passenger fares in the past.
Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways told the Lok Sabha in April earlier that total losses in the passenger segment alone stood at Rs 33,490.95 crore

in the financial year 2015.
While raising passenger and freight rate becomes the obvious option for the Railways to garner revenue, the lowering air fares poses a challenge to the PSU carrrier, which is expected to become formidable in the days to come.
Customer loyalty programme would offer incentive to passengers and may encourage travellers to choose the rail carrier over air carriers.

Grand ideas strike again! This scheme was already introduced (tie up with SBI bank) way back in 2004 when IRCTC started online ticketing and discontinued later as it flopped.
In order to be frequent flyer, first step is to eliminate restriction of 6 ticket booking per month on irctc! Probably no country in this world has such a restriction on booking simple domestic train tickets. First make money, then offer discounts and other ludicrous offers! Those days are left in ancient history when big airlines of the world used to award big rewards to their dedicated customers!

Indian Railways will introduce dynamic fares in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains from September 9.
"The base fares will increase by 10 per cent with every 10 per cent of berths sold subject to a prescribed ceiling limit. There will be no change in the existing fare for 1AC and EC class of travel," a railway ministry release said.
As passenger traffic has been dipping in the last few years across the country, railways is looking at different ways to generate revenue from passengers on high-density routes.

Pray Spicejet does not cancel flight at the last moment! Have you read recent news on Air Pegasus (India)? They have gone the KF way! Booking a CNF flight ticket & paying so much does not guarantee you will fly keeping in mind the amount of flight cancellations by these CHOR airlines. It is just a matter of time this flexi fare will be spread to normal Mail/EXP trains, as it is said rob Peter to pay Paul.

19011/19012 timings have never been changed since 25 years. In the 70's it used to arrive ADI@16:30, and thus need to be speeded up.
May be something like this might be useful:
19011 BCT dep. 06:45 / ADI arr. 14:15
19012 ADI dep. 07:15 / BCT arr. 14:45

19577 Tiruneveli Hapa Exp is very badly maintained. Travelled on it on 02Aug16. Coaches are very old and not maintained by WR. Toilets doors not not lock properly,some doors locks are missing, the taps are broken, water leaks and soon the coach is without water. Inside toilets water accumulates all over the floor, stinks badly.
The same is condition of s3, s4, s5 and s6 coaches.
The train has ample time for maintenance as it does not have RSA. Long distance train but does not have pantry.

Correct. One of the most dirtiest health hazard trains (including 2A coach) of WR. Washrooms stink of urine, never cleaned all the way.
Takes almost 10 hours during monsoons between PNVL-ADI as a result of many overtakes after BSR...
