The problem is will CR give new slots for south trains in Pune Mumbai section? Because almost all specials from WR NWR like OKHA MDU, both CBE BGKT, BGKT SMVB (via Bhildi), LGH KCG are taking ST BSL AK PAU NED route. So getting a new slot via BSR KYN PUNE is also difficult for south trains.

Regarding Mumbai, SWR operates zero trains from Bangalore. Similarly SR operates zero trains from Chennai.

If SR SWR jointly work out, there can be good trains from Madurai Trichy Rameshwaram Velankanni to Mumbai in 3 different routes:
1. via Salem, KJM DMM route
2. via Salem Tumkur Hubli Miraj
3. Via Salem Tumkur Hubli Madgaon Ratnagiri.

UBL DR rake is idle at DR for 14 hours, doing nothing. If planned, it can be used to run a good SF to Bangalore.
If Udyan is taken over by SWR, this is possible.
UBL DR can come back as Udyan. Udyan can return ti Hubli as DR UBL express. Of course, terminal point will be CSMT instead of DR. Slot already available and used by Udyan

These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
