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

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
