Mumbai Chennai is one of the oldest routes but sadly the track is single between Daund and wadi .There is no superfast train like Duronto or Gharib rath on this route.The existing trains are so dirty and 3-tier sleepers are insufficient.Many people prefer to travel by bus upto Bangalore by a/c buses and change trains.Through this forum I would like to know the current status of line doubling as also whether the raailways will continue with the superfast holiday special introduced recently.

SPL Train Continuation is the sole discretion of IR based on commuter's responce!!!
As mentioned, the condition is pathetic & so is the condition of trains in between CSTM-MAS!!!
One get shocked to watch the track maintenance & level of train enroute!!
The work is having the pace of turtle & would take another year or two to get finished!!!!

Thank u for your reply.I am trying to contact social organisations in Pune to press for the continuation of this train.Actually Mumbai based people should take an active role in this as it driginates from Mumbai.The train should be made a daily one with 4 days to Chennai and 3 days to Bangalore.The response will be good as I have travelled to Bangaore by a.c bus a few times and it is always full.Moreover people going to Tirupathi are growing and will use this train.The train can start from Thane if there is any space problem at Dadar/CST.It can also take the Thane-Panvel-Karjat route.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    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...
