* Janshatabdi with 15 ICF pax coaches (10-IIS, 2-CC,1EC,2DR) and high, patronage just follows Tejas with 13 LHB pax coaches (12ACC,1EC) with poor patronage. ACDD in departs just after Janshatabdi.
* Three chair car trains departing from Mumbai within half an hour is not desirable especially when Mandovi with more comfortable sleeper coaches departs just 1:30 hours after the ACDD. On the other hand not a single chaircar intercity departs from Goa in morning.
* It would be better to run Tejas with 12-IIS, 6CC, 2EC coaches departing from Mumbai in morning.
JS may depart at morning from MAO. ACDD may be operated at current timings of JS on trial basis.
* For the chaircar trains on Mumbai-Goa to be successful in long run, the journey time should be brought down to about 7:30 hrs through patch doubling & track upgradation.

rather, shift tejas to other end (start from MAO in morning) and extend ACDD to VSG.
both of the suggestions have been sent to RB, and they shat upon both :/
railways, almost knowingly, is operating loss making trains and charging exorbitant rates, thereby driving people away to other forms of transport
in MH, MSRTC has started 'Shivshai' range of buses, which are Air
conditioned and charge slightly more than semi luxury buses. many of these buses ae plying on Konkan route, taking advantage of the immense foolishness IR is displaying here.
same with BPL shtabdi and Gatimaan, one of them should be shifted out of NR and operated from other side, but yet again IR is acting foolishly.

* IR does not bother because on one end they are enjoying monopoly over railway ownership and operation and on the other hand they get 7th pay commission irrespective of how inefficiently they are managing the huge national resources. Above all they are getting handsome pension after retirement.
* CAG has concluded that IR AC class fares are much higher than equivalent facilities provided by ac luxury buses and non ac train fares are just a small fraction of equivalent services provided by the buses.
* IR treats the acc, ACIII & ACII
class paxs just like Indian Govt treat the middle class tax paying citizens, especially the salaried ones.

there is also the issue of Railway Board enjoying a rather great deal of power.
those people aren't always necessarily connected with ground level, plus they happen to be at the end of their service so don't care much about taking long term decisions.
