RB instructed SWR to LHBfy Konkan Kanya and Mandovi in 2019 and DIVA-SWV-MAO And MAO-RN-DIVA in 2021. As a Zonal Railway SWR cudnt even LHB single VSG CDO Train in this 4 years span. In year 2022 LHB Rakes alloted to Goa SF in Last Movement after PR SWR purposely Transferred All 5 LHB Rakes to UBL/SBC/ MYS

Re# 6115588-26              
You are not against SWR but you are always against VSG and it's trains don't know why is it so.
Zonal Railways take permission from KRCL who are they dude ?
In the end KRCL is just a mute spectator accepting whatever RB and in particular CR dumps on them.
And what is this obsession with premium trains and non premium
trains that's plain stupidity. Don't people travel in non premium trains ??
Will you never travel to Hyderabad or Tirupati because the trains are crawlers or will you travel in a premium train to Mumbai and then in another premium train to Hyderabad or Tirupati ? 😂
You always come up with negativity whenever Vasco gets any new train or even when first VSG train got LHB rake citing things like old coaches, etc...
Also the same MPT which you criticize day in day out transport tonnes of coal which is used in thermal power plants to produce electricity which you use at home.
KRCL could LHBfy their crawlers because that's the only trains they had. Why inspite of 2 pitlines and automatic coach washing more trains don't undergo PM at MAO ??
Also I never disagreed that SWR neglects VSG but it's you who jump into my posts stating nonsense like this /blog/post/6102677
It's clearly blind hatred from you towards Vasco Da Gama and SWR that you can't even see any good when they do. I criticize SWR for neglecting VSG but definitely praise them when they do good and not blindly go on abusing them.
And one more thing forgot those KR SWR ICF coaches ?? Stop lying atleast now after LHB KRCL got own coaches but in ICF days they were using SWR coaches marked as "KR SWR". That's a fact.
And most importantly yes SWR was late to LHBfy VSG CDO trains but when they started it they did LHBfy all VSG CDO trains in one year.
My only conclusion is both KR as well as SWR has positives as well as negatives it's not like one is a pure pious saint and other a devil. Both serve different parts of Goa and apart from Delhi connect to different parts of the country. Both are important.

Re# 6115588-27              
Also let me speak facts to you brother,
1. Agree this new VSG SC express looks like a crawler but it's still not introduced may be in final TT it may get a speed up.
2. Agree VSG TPTY is a crawler with lot of slack. I personally travelled in 2017 it was 2 hours late at UBL but arrived on time at TPTY.
Goa express ok it needs a speed up in ET NZM ET section but SWR can't do anything about that WCR, NCR and NR have to agree to give a new slot.
4. VSG YPR express was a crawler before but got good speed ups in YPR UBL section when doubling was nearing completion and now it's among fastest trains on SBC LD SBC route.
5. Amaravati express average speed is on par with SF trains like Coromandel, Falaknuma, etc. in HWH BZA HWH section with scheduled overtakes over some SF trains too. The train is slow in GTL UBL LD section because of the route itself being freight heavy one and there aren't any trains massively faster than Amaravati there. GTL GNT it's slack can be reduced after doubling is completed.
6. VSG JSME and VSG VLNK have pretty respectable average speeds too for M/E category trains.
7. And MOST IMPORTNAT FACT these trains from Vasco to Kulem have 2 halts within 58kms on a line which is in doubling phase so you can't increase average speed here much. Next Kulem to Castle Rock is 26 kms Ghat section with 1 in 37 ruling gradient in a single line section with heavy freight traffic and 10 to 20 minutes halts required at both Kulem and Castle Rock for banker and braker loco attachments and detachments. And there is a rule regarding Ghat safety that a train descending Braganza Ghats has to stop at every station enroute for mandatory brake testing.
8. Now here is Vasco Patna SF it's among the fastest SF trains in KYN PNBE KYN section but a crawler in your favorite KRCL inspite of having limited halts. Now who has to be criticized for this SWR or KRCL for not giving a faster slot in MAO PNVL MAO section ?

All these are facts you can check for yourself in IRI itself incase you think I'm lying.
