Cancellation of special trains is as under.
Dumbest decison Ever. They may extend these to other zines. Why cancel profitable ones?
Lucknow Tejas Extension: Issues brought by NCR & NR
Occupancy clearly proves LKO doesn't need TEJAS(except Festive season). Rich prefer SHATABDI and AC express , poor prefer GOMTI and LKO MAIL, they are enough.
Better GIVE TEJAS to Prayagraj as its people are always Hungry for UPSK and CNB shatabdi. 😂😂😂 Again if FARES aren't reasonable, it will be flop there too.
Prayag-LKO deserves a Jan Shatabdi(PM @LKO) with an aggressive TT. SHATABDI may not be preferred because of HIGH FARE.
PRAYAGRAJ-JHANSI Via( Banda) needs a ICE or JS with good TT. CONNECTION TO Delhi via JHANSI doesn't makes sense. LET MANIKPUR people enjoy UPSK, its already Housefull.
Why CNB, PRYJ don't have dedicated trains to VSKP,Tirupati, YPR, TVC, ERNAKULAM, PUNE, HUBLI, RAMESHWARAM, GOA(MADGAON), CAPE etc. I'm sure they are demanding routes.
It will be good not to interfere with Jhansi-LKO ICE it is superhit one of this route. PRYJ-JHANSI connection via Banda is required, a ICE or JS will suffice, like Jhansi - allahabad passenger is not preferred due to high travel time, it should be made fast TT.
Yes A JS or ICE with fast TT is required here(LKO-PRAYAG) not a premium train.
Yes, Shatabdi should be given TEJAS rake, corporate or pvt train is a flop idea for now(maybe feasible 10-15 yrs later) . Nobody would prefer paying extra, when LKO AC express, Shatabdi, GOMTI, LJN mail Etc are available. Super rich people prefer Flights( fare almost close to Tejas and time drastically less).
