Seems until this government is there no new trains in major routes will be introduced. Who asked for rail auto hub in Chennai when we have other priorities here? The third and fourth line from Chennai to Nellore is not getting any railway minister's attention !!! Chennai has the lowest suburban stations, as per wiki it is just 74 compared to 300+ and 400+ in Mumbai and Kolkata respectively. Many stations in suburban routes have no facilities. Also other new routes and projects in the state announced previously now forgotten :(

The hindu says southern railway lags behind using LHB coach due to lack of power coach, so some of them are diverted to other railway zones! When other railway zones have power coach what makes southern railway lacking them?? Because of this negligence we are yet to see lhb to trains like grand trunk, tamil nadu etc where relatively recently introduced trains are running in LHB coaches in other zones

Please rate this Weekly GR between LTT MAS by utilising idle rake of NZM GR idle for 3 days at MAS yard. Rake is 130 certified so 110 MPS is easily possible in the LTT MAS stretch.
