19 of the 29 Indian states have a train named after them (including two colorful names of Gujarat Queen and Sher-e-Punjab). Only 2 of them are very unique.. one travels only in the named state and the other never goes to the named state !! Name both trains.

Money is major
Lack of space to increase platform is second major constraint.
Unnecessary objection by forest ministry , architecture protection ministry , wildlife protection is third major.

1) For increasing the number of trains, constraint is the number of locos. I reach this conclusion by observing the fact that there are many idle rakes, idle platforms, idle tracks; but very few idle locos (except near ghat sections, where climbing up needs more locos than while climbing down). Therefore, the next budget should improve the number of locos, and try to optimize the number of trains (passenger / goods).

If width of the platforms is a constraint, we could move all offices and retail stalls to first / second floor, and provide exits only through that floor (most american stations are designed that way. Is the modernization plan of 40 world class stations involve this ?
For the richest organization in the country, how can money be a constraint ? Perhaps proper channeling of money is an issue. What percent of Rail Budget goes towards salaries ? Can something be done to reduce it ?
Forest / wildlife are external constraints, hopefully

new minister is more liberal, at least in urban areas.

This train have many available seats, thus, I don't think so one more train will be introduced.
Special trains are introduced only on those routes where demand is very high.

Train No 17003/4 Hyderabad Kolhapur Express takes an aweful 23 hours for this journey. As a result, it is not used by anyone for end-to-end journeys, but just for small legs.
This train can run via SUR on some days of the week and via UBL on others, that way connectivity concerns of north Karnataka can be addressed, while reducing travel time between HYD-KOP. This will also provide some traffic on the new line from KOP-SUR.

    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...
