MUMBAI: For the first time since it was introduced, the CST-Jammu Tawi Holiday Special train that runs once a week from Mumbai departed on time on Friday. Passengers and consumer activists had been complaining since past several months about the train not departing on time.
The train departs from CST at 6.45am every Friday and is scheduled to reach Jammu Tawi at 6pm the following day. On its return journey, it leaves Jammu Tawi at 7.20am on Sunday and reaches CST at 6pm. Though railway officials could not confirm the exact date of the train's first run, Central Railway's archives show the inaugural journey took place on September 26, 2014.

Arun Saxena said, "Several passengers had approached me to complain about the train not leaving on time, forget reaching the destination on time. It's not about a one- or two-hour delay; the train is almost always late by more than 8-to-10 hours."
Saxena raised the issue on social media besides initiating a correspondence with the railway ministry to seek refund for passengers if the train was delayed by more than three hours. "For the first time, it left on time on Friday and by the time it reached Delhi, the delay was only of one hour," he said.
Passenger Shellie Kashyap, who has travelled on the train, said, "On June 11 (Sunday), the train was scheduled to reach New Delhi at 4.40pm. Instead, it arrived on Monday at 6.15am. On another day, the train was supposed to reach Nashik at 1.50pm but reached almost 12 hours later. To add to our woes, the pantry car operators were charging Rs 120 for a vegetarian meal whose rate is fixed at Rs 35."
The train has received several bad reviews from commuters. Saxena said, "With such a pathetic reputation, people do not want to travel on this train and it is possible to get confirmed tickets even few hours before departure."
A railway official also conceded, "I have myself seen the train running late by 10 hours to 20 hours on some days."
Central Railway's chief pubic relations officer Sunil Udasi said, "We are trying our best to ensure that the trains run on time

Division of Central Railway further pointed out that Ballarshah - Mumbai CST (12140) Sewagram Express will be terminated at Nashik Road railway station upon its scheduled arrival at 7.27am.
The services of 12139 Sewagram Express towards Ballarshah will originate from Nashik Road at its scheduled time of 6.35pm.
The traffic and power will be blocked at all six lines between Dombivali and Kalyan for launching girders at Thakurli, Ambernath and Badlapur for re-building a bridge between the stations. "These intercity trains will not ply on Sunday and the restriction is limited only for that day," a communication from Central Railway authorities stated.
"The Railways will set up refund booths for all passengers travelling by train till Nashik Road and also for those who wish to call off their journeys," a senior railway officer from Bhusawal said.
When asked if there was any plan to arrange for bus services from Nashik Road till Mumbai for the passengers, the officer said, "We do not have any such plans for arranging any road services for the passengers. The passengers who wish to continue their journey in other trains can board trains up to Kalyan," the officials said.

RANCHI: Residents with roots in Bihar staged a demonstration at Ranchi railway station on Saturday when a team of Passenger Amenities Committee (PAC) from the ministry of railways visited the city.
The protesters demanded that the cancelled Ranchi-Jaynagar Express should be in service again. The train was cancelled after the Dhanbad-Chandrapura railway line was abandoned due to underground coal fire. The PAC members-Ashok Tripathi and S P Jaiswal-assured the protesters that the train services will resume soon, albeit with changes in its route.

the protesters said, "The PAC members said, they met with the divisional railway manager here. The members had already initiated the process to resume this train's services. We also want the train to start from Ranchi and not Dhanbad. We are heartened by this development as after the Ranchi-Jaynagar train was discontinued, it became very difficult for many people, from Bihar to get back to the state. This train connects people of Jharkhand to Darbhanga, Samastipur, Madhubani, Begusarai, Sitamarhi and even Nepal."
The PAC team then met with commuters on the railway station to ascertain the status of facilities available. At the air-conditioned waiting room one of the commuters, Vikash Kumar told the two-member team that lack of water and adequate lighting facilities on the railway terminus proved to be a major hurdle for commuters. He also added, "In some cases even after purchasing a confirmed ticket online I was told that I had been put in the waiting list."
At another waiting room, one of the commuters, Asha Devi complained about insufficient food in the canteen at the terminus. "Whenever we have to wait for two or three hours at the railway station, the canteen runs out of food and we have to rely on biscuits and other ready-made snacks," she told the PAC officials.
Protests and stone pelting erupted in Dhanbad after the cancellation of 19 trains following the closure of 120-year-old Chandrapura-Dhanbad railway line. Angry commuters were arrested for attacking the Alleppy Express train and later forcibly stopping a goods train between Tetulmari and Nichitpur stations near Goshala in Dhanbad railway division.
On June 15, movement of trains was stopped by the railway authorities on the 34km stretch. Railway authorities said that the decision was taken keeping passengers' safety in mind.
Apart from sporadic incidents of violence, commuters' protests over trains which were cancelled has been growing for the last few days. After trains stopped plying on the Chandrapura-Dhanbad railway line, a bandh was observed at Baghmara and nearby places where local residents protested against the railway authorities' decision
