Lately been pondering on this:

There are so manyctrains connecting Mumbai n Goa but still why Bus Operators in this stretch make great incomes...

There are plenty of AC buses
...
more...
running on this route n all run full almost daily. So demand exists for AC classes too at par with Non AC ones... So based on certain findings I have compiled up as under as to how to totally check mate Bus lobby Mumbai to Goa :

1. 12051/52 JNS to be retained as it is. One CC to be replaced by 2 Second Seating Coaches

2. Tejas shd be extended till MAO n will run Triweekly as

CST : 07:10
MAO : 16:10

MAO : 08:00
CST: 17:00

3. 10103 Mandovi will be speeded up to depart CST at 10:00 hrs n arrive MAO @ 21:45 hrs

10104 Mandovi will run as per existing schedule

4. Netra/ASR KCVL slot+/Matsya/GR slot to be retained

5. LTT VSG Uday DD Triweekly express shd be introduced slot sharing with 22629/30 DR TEN Express (11085/86 cancelled permanently)

LTT VSG UDAY
VSG LTT UDAY

6. Will be followed by weeklies /Rocket/KK n RR

Soliciting your Comments on this.

Thanks in Advance

Agreed. Mumbai mangalore Mumbai SF should be converted to 24 coach rake. But then we need to wait till cst gets more 24 coach enable platforms since the time of departure of Mumbai mangalore SF exp is a congested time at cst with less platform availability. There are plans to convert platform 10,11,12 & 13 into 24 coach enable platforms. And may be pitlines scarcity for 24 coach trains will also be a problem. Experts pls comment.

Just 4 PFs at Mumbai can handle 24 coach trains and this is creating a serious problem for many trains...

Apr 08 2017 (07:07)   Now Indian Railways won't allot you a seat number even if ticket is confirmed

Soon, no seat number will be allotted while travelling in trains even if your ticket is confirmed in order to secure the lower berths for women and senior citizens, sources told Zee Business.
Till now, Indian Railways used to allot the seat number as soon as ticket is confirmed.
However, from now, the passenger will get just a "CNF" message on the confirmed ticket. And, the berth number will be allotted only four hours before the departure time of the train, the source said.
This
...
more...
new move will first be implemented on Rajdhani trains, the source added.
"Despite having lower berth quota reserved only for women and senior citizens, TT usually allot the seats to other passengers in case of vacancy. Hence, creating trouble for women and senior citizen passengers as they have to travel in middle or upper berths," the source said.
Moreover, as per the source, Indian Railways is planning to implement this rule within two months.

I respect this decision but still what about those passengers who always want a window seat especially side lower berth like we rail fans or a person who travels alone. Means it will be a lottery system for us like lagi to lagi warna nahi.

Entry# 2222693   News Entry# 298554         Tags   Past Edits
NEW DELHI: The Railways will go for global shopping to acquire high speed locomotives with a Rs 500 crore project to run trains at 200 km per hour on Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata routes.
Speed is the latest matra for railways as it is going ahead with the action plan to upgrade Delhi-Kolkata and Delhi-Mumbai rail corridors enabling the track fit for 200 kmph train run.
"We will float the global tender for acquiring 10 high speed electric locomotives, which can haul trains at 200 kmph and beyond, from the market shortly,"
...
more...
said a senior Railway Ministry official.
At present, Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains are running up to 130 kmph. Only one train, Gatimaan Express, is running at 160 kmph between Delhi and Agra.
"The transfer of technology of the high power locomotives and its maintenance will be the responsibility of the successful bidder, besides supplying 10 locos to railways," said the official.
The Rs 500 crore project involves purchase of high speed locomotives, transfer of technology and maintenance for 13 years as per the bidding requirement.
The high power locomotives are expected to haul 22-24 coaches train at 200 kmph on Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata routes to reduce the travel time.
In order to match the loco capacity, railways has started the manufacturing of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches with speed potential of 200 kmph.
The high speed LHB coaches are about to be turned out from Rail Coach Factory at Kapurthala.
Besides Talgo coaches, which are also meant for higher speed on the existing tracks, are likely to be hauled with these high speed locomotives.

Rather going for expensive high haulage locomotive and being dependant on them why not try out train sets like EMUs. This is the most advance and accepted technology worldwide for high speed trains. Are they that costly? We are spending on high power - high speed locomotive then why can't we think on train sets. It was decided before then don't know what happened to the railways plan.
