Can we book on this train at Anand Vihar (ANVT) to Purulia (PRR) or Gaya & de board at Gomoh (GMO) station as it shows it has a technical stop there ?
May I know whether any of the members reside near Gomoh or Dhanbad station , if they can confirm about the technical stoppage there ?

as rail budget comes nearer, all the rail fans are anticipating new train announcements and other good things.we all know IR short of funds this time and to lessen the burden they r going to advance ARP by 120 days (a good move). as there r more serious railfans out there, lets pour suggestions on how IR can increase profitability and get funds via other route??? (leave fancy train announcements apart and focus more on small technicals).
1.one suggestion on my part is to convert Yuva trains to short distance shatabdi trains.
2.increase
...
more...
cost of platform ticket to 10 (which is not much) which i think will not be opposed understanding the harassment we get into while not having change.
3.open tenders for MNCs like MC'Donalds, Subway, Dominos etc on setting food courts on big station premises.

i really liked ur -ve points of increasing revenues.as a responsible & sincere citizen i personally feel IR should be much strict on fines.when i see the same people travelling in delhi metro he behaves well mannered and same person becomes irresponsible when coming to railway stations. fine is one answer but more than that they should be made to feel ashamed on what they r doing in front of whole crowd with heavy RPF in place (in case they quarrel).

Sir, platform ticket to rs.10?? no, it should be made rs.2 and should be given by machines on dropping coins(remember weighing machines in stations).(which is minimum ticket in IR.)

My side suggestions:
1.Revisiting concept of durantos.(I dont say to introduce stops but i say to reduce number)
2.rounding of fares: express fares can be rounded to nearest 5 for small hike and fast issue of tickets.
3.dedicated counters at stations to issue tickets to dedicated places.
4.expanding
...
more...
internet booking facilities.
5.Adveritsing inside trains: in the space between berths etc.
6.better utilisation of rakes.
7.increasing coach carrying capacity to 80.
8.Let the TTE check tickets in general compartments during runtime in duty.
(the duty of tte is 6 hrs and he completes in 30 min and sits idle. let him go for a round fo checking)
9.cancel flop durantos.

I had seen several times in Suburban trains near Chennai surroundings. Quite a few times at Gummidipundi station. A large no.of RPF'S they form a circle around the local train. And same with the ticket squad they check each and every person. Here no one can't escape from these Squad and RPF personals. And they form a group of ticketless travelers and they board them into a vendors coach. While getting down at Chennai they untie their shirt lower buttons and tie the half part of shirt with another person. After tieing they escort them to the court for fine and punishment. While going to the court how much embarassment they feel coz each and everybody will see them. And maybe next time they travel with proper ticket.

As per media report clones are the train which will introduced when the waiting list for the actual train exceed 500-600(Exactly i dont know the figure).
In that case another train will be arranged for those waiting list passengers and that train will follow actual train with minimum gap. That train called as clone.
As of now full rules of this system not released. May be after budget we will get better idea on this.

i think instead of running a clone train , more coaches can be added that will save on engine costs and pantry charges.moreover no confusion will prevail on boarding the train in ahurry!!!

Already many demanded trains running with 24 coaches maximum limit...Also if we want to clear 600 WL...10 extra coaches required. So for high demand adding coaches are not enough.
