Same kind of pressure can be brought for NGP-VSG train also, not a big deal. Any how we have still slots open for 9 am dep from Vasco, other than Mondays and Fridays. But here the scenario is different, CR want to connect Konkan MH with Vidarbh, so they are least interested to divert this train via Miraj.

Re# 2130835-16            Tags   Past Edits
It is a big deal actually. Because, it's not just SWR alone that has to be convinced. The Railway board has been instrumental in putting restrictions on the ghat sections. The new train came up because of the train's destination being the Railway minister's home region and the need for the government to placate the politicians from AP who have been demanding for a special status for the state and a new railway zone. Several things just worked in the train's favor and it was introduced. I don't mean to be discouraging, but the new train's introduction was nothing short of a miracle. Unless the RM manages to persuade the RB once again, it is unlikely to see the ghat section opening up again. Even if it does, pretty much SCR and SR are the only zones with enough clout to force such a decision.

It's not a matter of the slot being free. In the ghat routes, it's about number of services operating per day. So, even if the operating slot is free, there might be more freights running on that day completing the quota for that day. So, it will not be possible to introduce a new train just if the slot is free. Even for the new VSG-TPTY/HYD train, SWR was complaining that it had to cancel 2 freight slots to allow the new train.

They do use AEB locos, but the fact is that if the safety features in the rolling stock fail, then there is no scope for salvaging the situation. A few years ago, there was a freight derailment ( I had come across the wagons lying beside the tracks on a hike to Dudhsagar) on the route between Castle Rock and Dudhsagar. Luckily, the wagons did not run off the edge of the hill because they just happened to derail in one of the few safer sections on the route. This is the danger that the railways are keen to avoid with passenger trains.
While the gradients are the same, both routes are quite different. The Bhor

and Thull ghat routes are quite easily accessible as they lie close to the highway or other towns and in addition, they are built on less treacherous terrain. A quick glance at the Braganza or the Shiradi routes makes it apparent that these routes are very precariously laid, and also the main ghat sections are quite isolated. This makes track monitoring and maintenance an absolute nightmare. A lot of things have to be set up before these routes can see more traffic.

Very good elaboration, but now freights being reduced. Is it not possible to start few more trains on the route, as RM from same zone and Vidarba(NGP) being MH CM's home, can't they pressurize same way as AP did for recent train. Rather what i suspect they wanted to connect Ratnagiri region to Nagpur than short route.

The problem with CR trains is they only care about serving Konkan Railways. That's why no CR train terminates at Vasco. Till now Vasco has no connection to Mumbai inspite of repeated demands. Don't understand what keeps CR and other zones from running trains till VSG. Is it KR playing games here ?
