i can redesign the coaches interior and carry 90 passengers with more comfort in ii class sleeper instead of the present 72 berths. if this is implemented there will be 25 % increase in the carrying capacity of the ii sleeper coaches and imagine the increase in the excess number of persons traveling . wait listing may the thing of the past. the uncomfortable side berths which are getting removed is not the solution i have invented.

thanks for the comments.any invention or new thing will have it's own appreciation or criticism.that being apart i still have not gone in to the details.every one needs space and nothing wrong in it.there is shortage of coaches and even if coaches are available there is maximum limit each train can pull and any platform can hold.please think of those who are not getting the reserved tickets even if they trying well in advance.please see any of the unreserved compartments and for that matter compare a bus travel with this bad roads.see the elders and children who are really packed in to the unreserved compartments like vegetable baskets.
several trains people sleep (? ) on the side loft meant for luggage above the single seats and four or five people share the main luggage loft.even the toilets are not spared and people travel on the foot board and in the vestibules.
i once again assure whether my improvement is going to be implemented or not it possess ample space more than what now we have.and this may be an eye opener for further avenues and improvements what i have already to some extent worked is for earning extra money but to utilize the space available in a better way.

Good job, anon. We need more people like Ketharam, who are at least trying to make better use of existing resources. Hope Ketharam's plan gets implemented. I hope Mr. Ketharam has considered other things in his design (as pointed out by previous critical anon blogger) like water supply and toilet facilities for 90 people. I think 6 toilets/washbasins should be provided to the coaches that carry 90 people, and not just 4. Also, maybe they can also provide an extra set of doors, or else there will be too much rush at the stations. Anyway, these are other things to consider, and not just space to sleep at night.

    -@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. Also,...
