Sourav, I am asking you, whether VM or PDY can handle 3-4 hour cleanup for a UBL-VM/ PDY on a regular basis? I am not asking any big favour for this SWR train. Let us not get into too many technicalities of primary maint, secondary maint, pit line, etc.

SR and SWR are getting free run of a CR train, by using Chalukya rakes. SWR is happy as it has distrubed their own zone people,by slowing down this train.
Why SR or SWR is not running any train (don't say weekly via Salem)? People are breaking their backs in the Krishnagiri-TV Malai road, which is the worst road I have ever seen in my life.
But, coming to the point, why SR can't give some water and clean up the train at VM or PDY for this UBL train?

Citing this inefficiency, can we write to CR to terminate Chalukyas at YPR itself and not to send their trains to TEN and PDY?
Excellent reply. I never expected such a reason.
Then how SR trains are maintained? Assuming the efficiency levels to be correct, will they become more inefficient if they work on SWR train?

Let us not get into problems, for which we cannot propose any solutions. This discussion is about timing/ TT of a UBL-MAS spl and landed somewhere else. Still, I am not convinced about why this UBL train cannot start from MS or go any other nearby stn for cleanup and return?

Why can't IR run a Weekly service to Vasco Da Gama with this rake. This rake lies idle from Monday Morning 8 am atleast to Thursday Night 2 pm ( excluding primary maintenance).

It can depart LTT Mondays at 20:50 ERS Duru slot n arrve VSG Tues Morn at 8 am. Similarly it can depart Vasco at 19:05 hrs (VSG PNBE slot) to arrive LTT at 05:45 hrs just behind KK.

Your comments solicited..
Thanks

Partial slot of 12741 used. 12741 gets slack so that it can be accommodated in KYN BSL section. If slack is given then ONT purpose will be defeated

This train takes 22 hours to cover the distance, but wastes 2 days in effect. Dep VSG 1430 and Arr MAS 1155. Return journey 17311 also same way with MAS dep 1355 and arr VSG 1300.
Suggest the following TT for proper utilisation:
VSG DEP 2045 (in line with VSG-YPR exp) and arrive at YPR by 1030-1045. Dep YPR at 1115 and arr MAS 1730-1745. Return can leave by 2200 at MAS (slot available for 4 days/ week) and arrive at YPR 0425 and leave YPR at 0440 (KCVL-YPR slot) and arrive UBL 1200 and VSG 1800.
Advantages are:
1. Only one day is spent in travel
...

2. Timings suitable for DVG-TK pax towards MAS and vice versa.
3. At present, both up and down trains waste more than 1 hour in and around YPR. Especially from MAS to YPR can be covered in 6-1/2 hours, but takes around 8 hours.
4. Early morning KCVL-YPR slot gets utilised for a good cause.

VASCO may be the most neglected stn of SWR ...hardly anything originates from here ..and very very bad connectivity from even south india ...MAO is no exception either except for KR ..

Ahead of the railway budget to be presented in the parliament later this month, the Sanvordem-Curchorem rail consumers association (SCRCA) has urged Union minister for railways, Suresh Prabhu, to restore the various train services along the south-western railway (SWR) route which were suspended in 1996 during the gauge conversion work, but not restored since then.
SCRCA has requested Prabhu to restore the express train service on the Vasco-Miraj and Vasco-Bijapur routes, considering the needs of the large number of people traveling on these routes for business, medical care and other purposes. It has also demanded restoration of the Vasco-Mumbai express trains via Londa, Belgaum and Pune.
Speaking to TOI, SCRCA president Devanand Bhandari said, "The number of passengers traveling to Belgaum, Ghatprabha and Miraj from South Goa has increased manifold during the

last several years. The introduction of daily passenger trains along the route will lessen the hardships of these passengers."
SCRCA has also further drawn the attention of the railway minister to the long pending demand of the public for an express train service along the Vasco-Tirupati-Hyderabad-Secundarabad route.
It has also demanded that the Vasco-Yeshwantpur bi-weekly express be converted into a daily service, and that it may be renamed as 'Siddharudh Express', while also urging for the conversion of the weekly Vasco-Chennai express into a bi-weekly service and renamed as 'Dudhsagar Express.'
It further requested that the Vijaywada-Hubli Amravati express be extended to Vasco, and that the Vasco- Howrah Amravati Express which currently runs four days a week be converted into a daily service with pantry facility.
Copies of the letter have also been addressed to defense minister Manohar Parrikar, chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar, South Goa MP Narendra Sawaikar and North Goa MP Shripad Naik.

SWR is neither ready to make this train a 24 coach one and neither have any interest to speed it up. So better this train runs via PNVL KYN MMR and then the same route as a 24 coach train. It will also take atleast 5 hours less on that route.
What needs to be done is make it 24 coach train with 18 coaches coming from Vasco and remaining 6 coaches as a slip from either CLR/QLM merging with main train at MAO.
For UBL NZM and Vasco Pune connection they should start new trains on those routes ie. Hubli NZM SF daily and VSG Pune Express daily.
This will benefit all people and also Goa express will serve both VSG QLM

Vasco needs a new Rajdhani express.
.
Like SBC Raj, it can run for 4 days via LD-PUNE-DD-MMR-ET-BPL route
and for 3 days via RN-PNVL-BRC-RTM-KOTA route.

Daily Rajdhani to Goa very unlikely even getting a biweekly Rajdhani is tough due to the attitude of IR towards Goa especially Vasco.
