Mumbai Chennai is one of the oldest routes but sadly the track is single between Daund and wadi .There is no superfast train like Duronto or Gharib rath on this route.The existing trains are so dirty and 3-tier sleepers are insufficient.Many people prefer to travel by bus upto Bangalore by a/c buses and change trains.Through this forum I would like to know the current status of line doubling as also whether the raailways will continue with the superfast holiday special introduced recently.

SPL Train Continuation is the sole discretion of IR based on commuter's responce!!!
As mentioned, the condition is pathetic & so is the condition of trains in between CSTM-MAS!!!
One get shocked to watch the track maintenance & level of train enroute!!
The work is having the pace of turtle & would take another year or two to get finished!!!!

Thank u for your reply.I am trying to contact social organisations in Pune to press for the continuation of this train.Actually Mumbai based people should take an active role in this as it driginates from Mumbai.The train should be made a daily one with 4 days to Chennai and 3 days to Bangalore.The response will be good as I have travelled to Bangaore by a.c bus a few times and it is always full.Moreover people going to Tirupathi are growing and will use this train.The train can start from Thane if there is any space problem at Dadar/CST.It can also take the Thane-Panvel-Karjat route.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
