DOUBLE DECKER RUN ANALYSIS
___________________________________

Issues with existing TT:
---------------------------------------
a. Too
...
more...
early departure from Mumbai LTT and as such many passengers especially those from Western Suburbs & South Mumbai find it to board Double Decker. Also Boarding from Mumbai LTT is a tedious task in the mornings. Days of service are also odd.

b. The demand in the route is usually in the night time with Buses running full and raking revenues while this Double Decker runs will low patronage.

c. Back to Back departure with 22119/20 Tejas Express & 12051/52 Madgaon Jan Shatabdi Express dissuades passengers from opting for this Double Decker.

d. Moreover, the rake lies idle at Madgaon pit line for entire night when interestingly there is no service available till Vasco Da Gama which is just 30 kms away despite too much potential/ demand. Hence recommended extension till Vasco Da Gama.

PROPOSED CHANGES
------------------------------------
Halts: Thane, Panvel, Roha or Mangaon, Khed, Chiplun, Ratnagiri, Kankavli, Kudal, Sawantwadi, Thivim, Karmali & Madgaon.

Have redrawn the Time Table of 11085/86 Mumbai LTT Madgaon Double Decker Express and run timings have been allotted considering full Overnight connectivity between Mumbai and Goa like that of Bus Operators, rather it will give a tough fight to Bus operations and rake in revenue for IR.

It will accordingly be called as "UDAY OVERNIGHT SUPER EXPRESS"

There is no requirement of creating a separate slot as it will share slot with 12741/42 Patna Vasco Da Gama Express between Panvel & Vasco Da Gama which at present runs weekly.

Primary maintenance will be done at Mumbai LTT. As per proposed TT, rake will remain idle at Vasco Da Gama from Saturday Morning to Sunday Evening (Days of operation suggested above for maximum patronage) which can be utilized to run a weekly service between Vasco Da Gama & Mangalore Central / Kozhikode.

Requesting everyone to please offer your valuable comments on this proposal.
Thanks

As per reports, they are planning to augment Janshtabdi by 7 coaches . But this would need extension of platforms at Dadar Terminus as it can't handle trains longer than 18 coaches.

That sounds strange....for two reasons..
1) I guess CR does have extra set of Jan Shatabdi Coaches which they use an extra rake during monsoon TT.
2) the train's source and destination station could be changed to CSTM. It used to depart from CSTM once a upon a time..It's original launch station was LTT way back in 2004.
If your information is right, that

means they are waiting for the delivery of more coaches from ICF...Anyways on Sunday 18th Feb I saw the rake with a normal 2S coach used by intercity trains..so maybe they dont actually have extra JS coaches

I don't know what they are doing. I have seen many other normal intercity express trains with JS coaches.
They use JS coaches for special trains also.
