One of the best trains in history of IR is now compromised with. Yes, I am talking about the present situation of 12839 Chennai Mail (and hence 12841 Coromandel Express). When observed from outside, the rake looks like an age old one. I know the RSA factor is responsible for it, and I am sure Railway Authorities are also quite aware of the... more...
same. In fact they are aware of many, besides the fact of turning blind eyes to majority of them. But everything has got a LIMIT. Sleeper coaches are in nightmarish situation. I cannot say with utmost surety about inside conditions of AC coaches, but nonetheless the exterior is at par with Sleeper coaches. I know I may seem to be demanding something out of constraints of IR but the general conditions of these trains, in fact premier trains, can easily be improved if RSA factor is eliminated between them.
I may not mind that. But I will definitely mind it if key factors like cleanliness and general conditions of coaches are affected. They need to think about ensuring due care even in limited time constraint. Then the issue will stand resolved. They are not supposed to be there just for the sake of running trains.
If the coaching depot is not taking the maintenance seriously, then the rake will still be in a bad condition even if RSA is removed. And in particular, the RSA here is at the primary depot end of the train, so RSA is not an excuse for lack of proper maintenance.
I am precisely talking about that "Seriously" issue. If they cannot be Serious enough, do away with RSA, else justify the RSA. P.S. It is clearly intended that what primarily concerns me is not logistics but general basics. RSA should not be continued at the cost of denial of basic comfort to commoners.
Agree with you about the RSA vs Basic comfort. But I do not believe that the RSA is the problem in this case. In this case, both mail and Coromandel undergo primary maintenance at the Howrah end before every trip. So the RSA is not causing any difference here.
