No impact on Patronage.
- Odd Timing.
- 30% Higher Fare Charged.
No such Excuses
Whatever i know, on that basis only i said this. Your logic of 'Gud Number of pax' is not followed generally by the railways. Aligarh, Firozabad, Etawah are much better than Guraru in terms of patronage. But still most of the trains skip these stations but it Doesn't mean that it will reduce respective station's importance..!!
If it wasn't a failure, why was it discontinued?
Look at NDLS-SHC clone, NDLS-Darbhanga Clone, Patna Adi clone, Dbg-adi clone etc.
Clone should run with 90+% capacity. SL 6 coach sirf vo fill hona koi badi baat nhi h.
Itni demand hoti to Shramjeevi clone chalti rahti.
Yup, these all clones have better occupancy than shramjeevi clone. Shramjeevi clone had an occupancy of 90% but earnings was 70% only due to more intermediate pax. That can be reason behind its cancellation. Sapt Kranti clone was also cancelled.
Shramjeevi clone had only pnbe as major boarding point other than Rajgir. Somehow, it was one of the least preferred due to very odd timings at NDLS and slow TT. It also had maintaince issue due to lack of lhb maintenance facilities at RGD.
Whatever be the reason, the train is long
What about geographical factor like road connectivity, population, economics etc.
If you are comparing aligarh with guraru type stn, then you should check your rail knowledge. Guraru rafiganj has poor road connectivity with district HQ with high density population mainly related to middle to lower middle class.
Like if you have to travel delhi to mb, jp, cdg most probably you will choose bus. But here its very to travel no cab only Pvt bus with single road. To travel 20kms you have to give 2 hrs.
