12077/78 has now new destination boards!
This lost its charm
1)too much TT alterations/changes.
2)re-routing via newguntur
but can't do anything about that.Railways never think of that from our side.
This train have coaches of 120KMPH MPS.
Ponile sir vadileyandi.....
Yesterday travelled in this train from Nellore to Chennai. The train was late by 30 mins, arrived at 19 50 hrs. Inspite of having reserved ticket, I struggled a lot to board my compartment. Though this train is called Jan "Shatabdi" and officially there is no UR coaches, the train is full of UR passengers till Chennai. There was no TTE in my coach.
Sunday rush as usual,tte will in other coach I guess 2-3 tte will be their
But, Is UR tickets allowed in Shatabdi type trains ? So, you mean to say that on sundays, UR tickets are allowed in this train. Then why should they charge more in this train than Pinakini where there is no difference between both.
Its Jan shatabdi train ,its just intercity type train, shatabdi is different.
The Railways claim that this is not another Intercity Train but Shatabdi train with non A/C accommodation and no food charges included. Also the travel by this train is 15 - 20 rupees costlier than other superfast intercity trains.
What facility u want in janshtb? Vacant berths filled by gen pax ,railway earns money ,15rs extra for no gen coach facility backup money,
End to end pax has to suffer becaz of via ngnt route
The best option available for filling vacant seats is the Current Booking System. And you are speaking about railways earning money. Is there a separate UTS for JanShatabdis ? The unreserved passengers will be holding superfast tickets. And in the beginning of this blog I mentioned there was no TTE atleast in my compartment filled with atleast 50 standing passengers. Then who collected these extra money ? It is not the railway that is earning.
Instead converting this JS into SF train with 24 coaches will help a lot.
Or a jan sadharan type train can train JS.
I'm daily traveller from ogl to kvz in this train..... pass teeskovacha..... deeniki untadaa....?
No pass for this...and even to UR tkt aslo not issued if you ask at counter..
U need to ask SF tkt from OGL to KVZ at counter and board train
12077 runs daily with wam ajj..on thursday's too..
Actually wap-7 of gzb used to come with 12270 chennai duronto(on wednesday)and haul any train which returns the same day to mas.And then on friday again it goes to nzm witk 12269 chennai duronto this used to happen till feb 2012,then from gzb to lgd,lgd to rpm,p-7 links have been changed.So 12077/78 does not run with wap-7 anymore ...
Admins pls change..
Did anyone notice that in the Train board the Hindi version of Jan Shatabdi is written asJan Sapthagiri ?
Is it possible to have Jansadharan/general coaches attached to 12077/78? The train is currently running with just 9 coaches, with these coaches the train will become more popular & profitable.
Are there any other JS trains running with more coaches/general coaches
Not possible to add UR in jan shatabdi because they are fully reserved.
insted of UR coaches they can add more 2S coaches if there is need
Railways should add additional coaches to this Janshatabdi train
better allot gnwl qouta for all stns bza-mas first
at present no need of extra coaches only sat/sun heavy rush one coach can be added
extra permanent ac chair car required asap high demand
Impossible because Janshatabdi is a fully reserved train and unreserved compartment cannot be added
extra CC ok bhai..2S aitey inka better kada
Thanks for the inputs. I completely agree with you bhai, Why only 30 seats for OGL and KVZ together? Even NLR & GDR together have only 72. They should make 12078 completely general like 12077 or add more coaches.
