Yes, We should force railways to categorise trains rather than to concentrate only on premium trains.
1. Normal passengers: Fully UR, stops at all places. average speed: 30-45 kmph. Normal passenger fare.

2. Express: Fully Non AC sleepers and UR exception with 2 or 3 AC coaches, stops at major halts, have avg speed from 40-55 kmph. Normal Express fare

3. Janata express: Fully Non AC sleepers and UR, stops at major halts, have avg speed from 40-55 kmph.Normal passenger fare.

4. Super fast, Intercities, Jan shatabhi, Duronto: Mixture of AC, NON AC with limited UR coaches (2-3 coaches for UR for SF and ICE/ No UR for duronto andJS), limited stops, have avg speed from 55-65 kmph. Normal Express fare + superfast surcharge/Duronto Surcharge/JS surcharge.

5. Shatabhi, Tejas, Rajdhanis: Fully AC. Neither Non AC sleepers Nor UR. very limited stops,have avg speed from 60-90 kmph. Rajdhani/shatabhi fare. (1.25 of normal express fare). VB should brought under Shatabhi/Tejas category.

6. Premium fast & humsafers: Fully AC with NO UR/sleepers, only city stops, very limited stops, have avg speed above 65 kmph. ARP should be 1 day. Fully tatkal Express fare +superfast surcharge . humsafers only need to have 3A and 3E.

7. AC MEMU/EMU: Fully AC UR MEMU/EMU with limited stops. Express fare of Sleeper category or First class fare of EMU.

Modernization is necessary but not at the cost of general public. Both should be taken care of equally.

Plus new premium services should be launched in moderation with a justifiable fare chart. Not every route needs a premium connection at an average speed less than an average superfast.

routes with higher SL/GS demand keep them in majority, and ones with higher AC demand, more AC coaches. Running different trains for different people in our country won't work. Because at the end of the day local ticketless people would gladly board an AC1 rather than an Amrit Bharat if given a chance.

Travel SAFE

1. RailFanning does NOT MEAN dangerous pics/videos.
2. Doorplating pics/youtube videos are strictly FORBIDDEN in IRI.
3. Take plenty of food pics and other safe pics.
4. Write human interest narratives to make the pics interesting.
5. Enjoy blogging and travelling SAFELY.

REMEMBER: YOUR LIFE is the most precious thing, NOT RailFanning.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
