At Mangalore Central - Instead of arrival trains schedule changes, you did changes in Departure trains from 5 Am to 8 Am. why ? - From TN - first arrivals 3.30 am is too early.. & 9.05am ... too late. bringing into between 5am to 8 am time. Need changes an arrival time of Chennai superfast 8 am. it will be link to Konkan route - madgaon intercity exp. & useful for others ( Mangalore) can reach on time. Paltforms is not an issue. SR - can introduced new trains Manglaore - Madurai....

Attn S.R. - #22636-Mangalore-Madgaon Intercity Express--Innaguration day ( Pantry car, A.c, D1...,, UR) 1 month after removed Pantry car, 1 year after UR , Reserved D coaches removed, after 2 year now A.C chair Car also removed.. Now Train became too small ( no of coaches reduced).because of no connection trains for passengers , it may be better solution - Reshedule a Chennai superfast as a connection train of to this train. Mangalore central station till 8 am not taking arrival trains even though platforms are available. sufficeint platforms & track there at central, No need built an extra platform & track line to this central station. SAT & MON taking arr & dep extra weekly trains. Why Can't do other days also..

Saw a news Southern Railway has recommended to the Railway Board to amalgamate the two loss-making trains — Mangaluru - Madgaon Intercity Express and Kasaragod-Mookambika Road Passenger to run as Kasaragod-Madgaon-Kasaragod service via Mangaluru Central.

Proposed to start the amalgamated train at 10 from MAQ now.
12686 can easily be speeded up. It reaches Kasargod at 7:40 but MAQ at 9:05. The arrival of Maveli should be advanced to arrive the 12686 early at MAQ. But mostly railway will not do this, as they will say platform constrains/operational constraints etc.

I> Opereations - Their (SR) Target till Kannur & Maximum upto Kasargod. Then, they are sending the train to Mangalore just for cleaning the trains, not for passengers. so, no time & station Maintanance, also No Sign board from Road or No Welcome arch. No one can make it out station is there, still so many people are asking where is the station..?
II>Platforms is not an issue.. always PF are empty. Station are 60% - using one PF. only from Morning Departure trains ( one will be PF , next depart. train will be Reverse track & Then taking arrival trains. / ... Still they can
be introduced new train routes are from MAQ. ( i.e) MAQ to Madurai..

Kind Attn. SR.. Immediate should stop this practice - Frequently stopping the Madgaon- Mangalore passanger in between MAQ junction to MaQ central
Middle of the way, that area is full darkness & Mosquitoes too.. is highlight were passangers can't sit or walk on train. Halt the train Mangaluru Junction itself OR taken into arrival at MAQ Central station.
you have to High priority to passangers safety & Health, Departure trains time 5 to 10 min. late it's not a
issue compare to passangers safety & Health.
if you want to be a prompt for depart of trains timings , you should be prompt for arrival trains also.

Attn...SR - Konkan route - daily 2 trains are going from Mangalore central ( 8.15am) & ( 9 am) running empty. you must change of time to Chennai super fast exp. fr 9 am to 8 am - as a connection train of Goa intercity exp. (Konkan route) - pilgrimage centre ( Udupi, Kollur Mk temple, Murdeshwara ) & conveniences for passengers who can reach on time for their work. since no trian for konkan route from southern tamilnadu (Erode / Tirupur/ Madurai & southern districts..)
Once arrived chennai super fast 9.05am at Mangalore central, no connections trains to go anywhere till afternoon.. Platforms are empty...
change on scheduled arrival time 1 hr ealier will be benefits for all.

Feb 29 2016 (13:38)   Double decker trains are feasible: Rly report

Rahul banerjee   281 news posts
Entry# 1753393   News Entry# 259621         Tags   Past Edits
Madurai: Double Decker trains may become a reality between Madurai and Chennai as the Madurai Railway Division has presented a favourable report on the feasibility of operating this train in the division.
Divisional railway manager Sunil Kumar Garg told media persons recently that there were no constraints to operating the train that has different dimensions.
The division has carried out 'over dimensional consignment' studies in the division and found that there are no constraints on this aspect between Madurai and Trichy.
Trichy and Chennai divisions were also to carry out this study to find out the possibilities of operating double decker trains, the DRM said.
The railway budget proposed operating double decker trains between major destinations and there was speculation last year itself about operating a double decker day train between Madurai and Chennai. Railway officials in Chennai said there was a proposal to move a double decker train from South Central Railway where it did not have adequate patronage.
Anticipating this, the over dimensional consignment studies were conducted. However, the double decker rakes did not come to Southern Railways from South Central Railways as expected.
"A double decker train is a good proposal between Chennai and Madurai but it has hit a road block. We have to wait and see the outcome for double decker trains from this recent railway budget," a railway official said.
