Many Trains originating from LTT either come to halt at Thane or reduce their speed to 30kmph(approx). Why dont Railways simply provide official thane halt to these trains. This wont cause delay or traffic as either way these trains halt at thane for technical reasons. I had read a news few years back that all LTT originating trains will halt at Thane after completion of few development projects like extention of Platform 5,6 , new foot-over bridge, escalators. But nothing happened.

Take any train which does an avg of 54 kmph end to end and you will find many trains.If its specials there are many which exceed 60 also like /train/21242/785/1232 .

a good superfast exp between mumbai and bangalore with 5-6 ac coaches and travel time of 20 hrs is the need of the hour .. Duronto concept is over, many durontos are being converted to shatabdi, intercity and many will be converted to ac express also..the main thing which is to be done is to quicken the process of doubling and electrification in whole karnataka..

Bus lobby makes its difficult to introduce new train between Banglore and Mumbai. Anyways,now a days, Railways is not at all interested in listening to the plight of passengers.

But there is an Ac express announced between Mumbai-Karmali. That might be the Ac DD express which was in the news.

Book it till Delhi and de-board at Jaipur. You'd just need to pay some 100 bucks extra but you'd get a confirmed seat for Dec 29.

Is that true that 12052 overtakes ERS-NZM Duronto Exp at Vilavde? It is shown like that only in X/O section. How can a Jan Shatabdi train overtake a non stop Duronto exp? Its very shocking! :o

Durontos are Non stop commercially,
but due to various operational reasons trains do halt at various stations

Re# 895476-3            Tags   Past Edits
I had such impression of Durontos like,Durontos are the fastest trains,and no other train can overtake these trains,even though they have some technical halts. This particular Duronto seems quite slow as it takes 10 hours 39 minutes to cover Madgaon-Panvel distance,whereas Jan Shatabdi covers same distance in just 7 hours 18 minutes. Does this happen with only this particular Duronto?

Travelled by 12052 Madgaon Dadar Janashatabdi Express on 31st October. It was the one of the dirtiest train I have ever traveled with. My last experience with this train (around 4-5 years ago) was very nice,hence it was more shocking for me. There were around 3-4 cockroaches just around my seat,so god knows total how many of them were there in entire coach. Date of last pest control was 2 months ago. As Sun set later,so many other insects made their presence in that train. I am sure that if Nat Geo or Discovery channel shoot one entire episode in this train,they will find more diversity in living organisms here than any jungle.

Re# 894964-1            Tags   Past Edits
the reason is that the train that arrived from Mumbai is given some time halt aat Madgaon and the same train returns back to Mumbai. People in their hurry board the 12051 as soon as it reaches Madgaon for the return journey thus making it practically impossible to clean

This train was running as per monsoon time-table i.e. Departure from Madgaon at 12.10,before arrival of 12051. So Railways must had got time to clean that train at Madgaon. And I dont think that so much dirtiness took place in just one Mumbai-Madgaon journey. It must be not cleaned since long time.

Thane much required than Kalyan. If either one of them is to be given halt,then It should be Thane! Afterall it is an AC train,not an Janasadharan Exp! :p
