Gatimaan dirty
When Gatimaan Express started its maiden run towards Agra, its coaches, vestibules and toilets were spic and span. On its return, it showed signs of being ravaged by callous passengers. Sinks choked with pan masala dregs, empty bottles and food packets lying on the floor and soiled toilets brought the train closer to the standards of any other train.

Oct 07 2015 (17:42)   19 new trains to roll out this financial year

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   35885 news posts

PUNE: At least 19 new express trains, including two from Pune, would chug on tracks before March 31 next year.
The official time table posted on the railways website includes the 19 new trains, four of which would be completely air-conditioned (AC). It came as a surprise because railway minister Suresh Prabhu had taken a bold decision not to announce any new train in his maiden railway budget presented last February.
Of the four new AC trains, two would ply from Pune — one to Delhi and another to Nagpur. The third train
AC train would be running between Nagpur and Amritsar. The fourth train would be from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) to Lucknow. Five new Jansadharan trains would ply according to the demand of commuters. The time table states that the date of the introduction of the new trains would be notified later.
Mumbai would get two new express trains, including the AC express to Lucknow and LTT to Kazipet (via Nashik-Manmad). Two Jansadharan trains would ply between Mumbai and Chhapra and LTT to Jayanagar.
Two existing trains would now run as superfast trains— Pune to Indore and Bandra to Dehradun. The Indore-Gwalior train would be extended up to Jhansi. The frequency of Yeshwantpur-Puducherry Express would increase from two to three days each week.
The proposal to introduce the new trains would be a delight to railway commuters because railway minister Prabhu had for the first time made a departure from the tradition of announcing new trains in the budget speech. "At present, due to over-utilised line capacity and backlog in track renewals, there are speed restrictions, which lead to delay in running more number of trains. The review will be completed soon so that we can announce new trains and increase frequency of trains in this session (budget session of Parliament)."
No new trains were announced either in the budget session or the monsoon session of Parliament. The bonus came with the new railway time table introduced on October 1, usually initiated on July 1 every year.
A railway official said: "The Railway Board takes the decision on the introduction of new trains. Generally the trains are introduced before the end of a financial year. The actual running of trains depends on the availability of new rakes (coaches). The board decides the priority of starting new trains."
Coming soon

cleanliness has taken a back seat ever since RSA was done with Una JS. cockroaches and muck are the order of the day in non AC coaches. also people throw stones on 12055 injuring passengers between GZB and Modinagar stations.

indeed. RSA is just to avoid engine reversal at NDLS but that has meant nobody cleans the rakes properly anywhere. with dedicated rakes each base was solely responsible. now they can blame each other and do no cleaningp

now that this train has a 30 min stoppage at HW railways should attach extra coaches at HW to make this fast but weekly a 24 coach train for it to serve any meaningful purpose. presently DDN can take only 13 coach rakes and it is a criminal waste of precious energy and prime slot to run this train with 13 coaches only for 3500 km. railways should, in fact, attach extra coaches at HW to all trains using 6 AM dep slot from DDN, i.e., DDN-INDB, DDN-UJN, DDN-OKHA and also DDN-MDU trains to increase their capacities.

given the fact that Dehra Dun is connected with Mumbai with only super crawler 19019/19020 DDN-Bandra exp, it is requested that railways amend the timings of 12018 DDN-NDLS shatabdi and 22210 NDLS-BCT doronto slightly so that a transit gap of at least ONE hour is made available between the arr of 12018 and dep of 22210 so that residents of DDN can get some respite. i hope the railway minister takes note of this urgently and takes needful action without delay.

many AC coaches have been catching fire of late owing to short cricuit. railways must maintain coaches properly to ensure safety of their customers. if there is some fault in design that must be rectified without delay.
