Great initiative by Konkan Railways.
Konkan Railway introduces vouchers for food items in the trains.The service was introduced in Mandovi Express and Konkankanya Express trains on its route with effect from Friday. The service will be tried out first in AC coaches of the two trains and later extended to other coaches and other trains depending upon its success.This will ensure that the food items are charged by the caterer as per the approved rates of the KRCL and bring about more transparency.

doubledeckertrain.jpgdd1jpg061722.jpg
Two news of Mumbai-Goa Double decker released on 5th Aug-
1. Times of India -
Double-decker train to Goa likely to run before Ganeshotsav
Manthank.Mehta @timesgroup.com
Mumbai - Plans are under way to run a double-decker train on the heavily congested Mumbai-Goa route to cater to the additional rush of passengers who head to their hometowns in the Konkan region ahead of the Ganpati festival, which begins on August 29.
The decision to run the double-decker service between Mumbai and Karmali or Pernem will be taken only after the commissioner of railway safety (CRS) approves the plan. “While the Konkan Railway has already submitted the
...

papers for approval, Central Railway submitted the papers to the CRS on Monday,” said a railway official. “The double-decker train may originate from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus in Mumbai. It will ply only on alternate day as there is only one rake, maintenance would be an issue.” While the train timings are yet to be finalized, sources said it is likely to depart from Mumbai at 5am.
The introduction of double-decker services on the Mumbai-Goa sector will throw open options of more berths per train and bring the pressure of demand to manageable levels during the peak season. The carrying capacity of the nine-coach Janshatabdi is 700, including 73 in AC chair car. During peak season, an AC coach and two non-AC coaches are added.
On the other hand, a double decker coach can accommodate 120 passengers—50 on the upper deck, 48 on the lower and 22 on the ends. The train may have 10 coaches.

गणपतीला चला डबल डेकरने?
रेल्वेच्या सुरक्षा आयुक्तांनी तातडीने मंजुरी दिल्यास यंदा कोकणात गणपतीसाठी डबल डेकर गाडीने जाता येणार आहे.
रत्नागिरी- रेल्वेच्या सुरक्षा आयुक्तांनी तातडीने मंजुरी दिल्यास यंदा कोकणात गणपतीसाठी डबल डेकर गाडीने जाता येणार आहे. गणपतीपूर्वी ही गाडी सुरू होण्यासाठी विविध स्तरांवरील पाठपुराव्यांना यश आले आहे, अशी माहिती विश्वसनीय सूत्रांकडून प्राप्त झाली आहे. ही गाडी १३ डब्यांची असणार आहे.
कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावर मुंबई-गोवा दरम्यान डबल डेकर गाडी सुरू करण्याच्या हालचाली गेल्या वर्षी नोव्हेंबरमध्ये सुरू झाल्या. भोपाळहून मुंबईला दहा डब्यांची वातानुकूलित डबल डेकर गाडी दाखल झाली. १९ ते २१ मे दरम्यान मुंबई – रोहा, रोहा – रत्नागिरी आणि रत्नागिरी – मडगाव अशी तीन टप्प्यांत या गाडीची चाचणी यशस्वीपणे पार पडली.
गणेशोत्सवापूर्वी ही डबल डेकर कोकणातून धावण्यासाठी रेल्वे बोर्डाचे प्रयत्न सुरू होते. दरम्यानच्या काळात याच मार्गावर रोहयानजीक दिवा – सावंतवाडी गाडीला भीषण दुर्घटना झाल्याने या मार्गावरून धावणा-या गाडयांचे वेगावर आलेले नियंत्रण आणि त्यानंतर अपघाताची चौकशी, त्याचा अहवाल यामुळे या गाडीच्या चाचणीला उशीर झाला.
या गाडीच्या सुरक्षा चाचणीनंतर सुरक्षा आयुक्त चेतन बक्षी यांनी सुरक्षा आणि देखभालीबाबत मध्य व कोकण रेल्वेला प्रश्न विचारले आहेत, त्याची उत्तरे दोन दिवसांत दिली जाणार असल्याचे समजते.
ही गाडी सध्या नाहूर स्थानकाच्या यार्डात उभी आहे. या गाडीला लावण्यासाठी आणखी तीन डबे तयार ठेवले असून सुरक्षा आयुक्तांच्या मंजुरीनंतर तेरा डब्यांची ही गाडी गणेशोत्सवापूर्वी धाऊ शकते, अशी माहिती उपलब्ध झाली.
डबल डेकरचा प्रश्न मार्गी
कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावरून धावणारी ही गाडी गणेशोत्सवापूर्वी सुरू व्हावी म्हणून मुंबईतील खासदार किरीट सोमय्या, दक्षिण गोव्याचे खासदार नरेंद्र सवाईकर यांनी गेल्या आठ दिवसांपासून रेल्वे खात्याकडे पाठपुरावा सुरू ठेवला होता. याच पार्श्वभूमीवर रेल्वे राज्यमंत्री मनोज सिन्हा यांनी मुंबई-गोवा डबल डेकर गाडीचा प्रश्न आता मार्गी लागला असल्याची माहिती दिली. गणेशोत्सवापर्यंत ती रुळावर आणण्याचा प्रयत्न असल्याचे ते म्हणाले.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Can we expect that Mumbai - Goa(KRMI/PERN/MAO) Double decker dream will come true. As I read TOI article I am thinking that CRS may have given approval for this project.

mujhe nahi lagta ismein CR ki koi galti hai kyunki RDSO ne double train ko clearance diya hai. CR aur KR dono ne hi CRS ko double decker ke liye file submit kiya tha. lekin KR ka file reject nahi huva sirf CR ka hi file reject huva. isse pata chalta hai CRS wale CR se jalte hai. sirf maintainance ke liye double decker train ke file ko reject karna koi bacho jaisi harkat karne wale CRS hi kar sakte hai jabki CRS wale ko yah bhi pata hota hai ke before every schedule running of any trains maintainance aur cleanlines compulsory ki jaati hai. phir reject karneka ka koi sawaal hi nahi hota.

The section is pretty safe and i don't think you will have to face any security related problems in this train. However,unreserved passengers do enter reserved coaches. Be cautious about that.

TRIP REPORT.... TRIP DT. (23/06/2014)
/diary/trip/51655
After a tiring day in Mumbai it was time for a trip to my native place through Konkan Railway.. Approximately at 7:30pm charting was done for this train.. Seeing that I was alloted the railfans seat Side Lower/ Side Upper Berth, I felt I was the luckiest person on this planet..
After having our dinner, I and my grandfather proceeded towards Thane station.. As PF#7 is always crowded, we decided to sit on PF#10 which is vacant as compared to PF#7.
Then there was an announcement stating '' W.e.f. 23/06/2014 KR Down 10111 Konkan Kanya Express will leave from PF#5 instead of PF#7.'' After hearing

this I was overjoyed as Karjat bound fast local would not be able to overtake Konkan Kanya Exp from PF#5..
At 23:35 we proceeded to PF #5, the train arrived at 23:48 approximately, expecting an EMD WDP4 to be seen while the train was entering the station, to my disappointment the train was hauled #offlink TWIN KJM WDM3A both were rebuilted ones,we entered d coach and occupied our seats.. Then in search of bedding for me and I grandfather , I deboarded the train and went to Pantry Car which was a coach behind us, By the time I could return to my seat the train was ready for departure.. We left Thane at exactly 23:55..
After leaving from Thane the twin alcos accelerated and by the time we could reach Parsik Tunnel the train touched 90+ km/hr, but decelerated as we were approaching Diva Jn.
Crossed Diva at moderate speed, just as we were to cross Dativali, I saw late running 12052 Jan Shatabdi Exp hauled by #offlink WDG4 crossing us.. Then crossing Nilaje the alcos went blizzard, accelerating over 100 km/hr.. Now we zoomed passed Taloje, after crossing Kalamboli the train slowed down on its approach to Panvel Stn.
By The time we could reach Panvel station it was 00:34.. This time another surprise, our train arrived on PF #6 instead of PF #7..
The alcos did a very good job covering 33 kms in 39 minutes at an average of 50.76 km/hr even though there were frequent accelerations n decelerations.

After a two minute halt we departed Chiplun, after Chiplun slowly picked up speed, now it was time to blast through d Tunnels of Konkan.. Crossed Kamathe 9 mins after Chiplun, after that blasted at constant 85-90 km/hr till Aravali Rd. After Aravali Rd. just slowed down a touch as there were vulnerable regions, the patrolmen were on alert at night with white torches. At 05:07 am we arrived at Sangmeshwar Rd., after a 2min halt departed towards Ratnagiri.. Now was the time to pass to the terrain of KR, the mountainous regions. Here too, there were a lots of speed restrictions and lots of patrolmen who were standing inside n outside the tunnel.. While passing through this hilly region I saw 3-4 waterfalls but sadly couldnt click pics as sun had not risen yet .. Crossed Ukshi at a good speed, the best part of the journey was crossing...

4 continuous tunnels after Ukshi at a good speed about 85+km/hr but there were speed restrictions in between though.. Just enjoyed d loud noise the train made inside d tunnel.. Also when one tunnel ended we were inside another tunnel.. After blasting through Karbude Tunnel, the one time longest tunnel in India, currently d second. We slowed down and were looped at Bhoke, it was 05:32am that time, we were stopped for crossing Kerala SK going towards Chandigarh.. After 4-5 mins I could see WDP3A approaching Bhoke with Kerala SK at a steady speed, approx 60 km/hr.. Just a minute after d crossing we started from Bhoke , it was 05:40am.. Now was a time to enjoy a cup of tea, sadly this time there was no monsoon to give me company.. While approaching Ratnagiri I could see the rake of Ratnagiri - Dadar Pass. on the pit line, it was cleaned n washed nicely and was ready to be brought on PF at Ratnagiri, Kalyan WDM3A was already attached to it.. By the time we would stop at Ratnagiri it was 05:51 am...
