Weird Railways: Mumbai to Chennai (Metro to Metro connectivity)
1. No Duronto (Atleast two metros should be connected by 1 premier train)
2. Fastest train 11017 LTT KARAIKAL EX (An express that too a weekly with 19 halts)
3. 2nd fastest 12163 CHENNAI EXPRESS (A SF slower than express taking longer route 7km extra despite from Dadar plus 5 halts extra)

from what i have heard, people go to bangalore, and then onwards to chennai. while it wouldb't be very comfortable, it would still take less time, or atleast equal time (mumbai bangalore takes around 18 hours in bus, Bangalore chennai is bound to take 6 or less than that) than 12163.
Thing is, south-west connectivity is horrid; lack of any heavily biased RM from this region means that railways never bothered to run half decent trains between the major destinations in this section, unlike others where mumbai/bangalore/chennai each have excellent SF's to many parts of country

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
