If possible, try to avoid travelling in special trains unless it is absolutely necessary to travel.
This particular train advertised as an AC Superfast Special has an average arrival delay at Goa of 5+hours...

Just owning a high-end Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and wearing Ray-Ban shades doesn't make you civilized if you lack basic mannerisms. This was shot onboard a Special Train in Kerala.

Concrete walls have been built on both sides of the railroad track to stop people and stray cattle from getting onto the tracks, Press Trust of India news agency said.

There have been a number of requests to not overly spam videos from your channel. Would it be possible to cut down on the amount of videos shared here and instead promote some information regarding railways in India to intersperse the videos so that content isn't lost amongst YouTube videos?

Many thanks.
