Mumbai - Pune Trains
I note that the Mumbai Pune trains do not have any RSA with any other train. The rake is used for 7 to 8 hours a day and then idling. Can anyone explain why this is like this?

I am sure, this service is operated by the lying idle rake of some other train. Anyone has any idea which train it might be?

Since this rake has no RSA, this is going to be idle for an undly long time. Why can't the SR run this train at least three times a week.
