AFAIK, almost all the older trains had 12 coaches as well. At least that's what it was since the last time I traveled in those trains in 2003.

Rajdhani Express may soon stop at Andheri

Quote:

A survey by Western Railway (WR) and NGO Humlog has revealed that an overwhelmingly large number of passengers want the Rajdhani Express to halt at Andheri station. Over 75 per cent of Rajdhani's passengers, according to the survey, are from the stretch between Bandra and Borivli.

"We realised this after we checked the addresses of passengers travelling by Rajdhani and the August Kranti Rajdhani Express," a senior WR official said.

The official added, "A proposal has been sent to the Railway Board. Passengers on the Rajdhani have to come all the way to Mumbai Central to board the train. Andheri would be more convenient."

Advocate Vijay Singh from Humlog said, "We have requested that the Rajdhani halt at Bandra Terminus, but till that happens, it can stop at Andheri." Singh added that the halt would also minimise traffic congestion in the Western suburbs.

Andheri resident Neelam Gupta is hoping the proposal goes through. She said, "How will the railways suffer if they halt the train at Andheri just for a minute?" Gupta has to leave her home at 1.30 pm to board the 4.50 pm Rajdhani from Mumbai Central.

C P Sharma, divisional railway manager, WR, said, "I'll make it a point to bring this to the Railway ministry's notice."

My question is how are they going to implement Metro and Monorail. They both will be east west connectivity.

If they want to do it, do it underground. Will be better. I think they need to revamp all the stations first and make it to the best interiors, security facilities, baggage scanners, computerized tickets, and better seating facilities.

What i am hoping is with the advent of metro + monorail, people will demand more comfort from suburban railway as well - but i dont see it going anywhere in the near future, as long as control is in the hands of central government.

A few months ago, I was thinking, "what if they build the railways underground in such a way that each line runs below the main suburban railway line?"

But this thing is way out of our government's reach. A few months from now, the project will be talked on paper, but nothing will be implemented and the talks will disappear like a smoke in the air.

The introduction of these 23 services has been handled in a very bad manner. Lots of existing services too were tinkered with.

And to top it all, WR did not release any timings of the new services and changes made to the existing services.

That will take a long time, at least 3-4 years more.
