do you think the RSA of 22159 Mumbai CSMT - Chennai Central Superfast Express should be broken and have its original RSA back to 22157 Mail or 2 Separate Rakes just like 12163
NO vote
Not sure
Current RSA is fine with Amritsar EXP
Yes it should have 2 proper dedicated Rakes
Yes, The RSA should be restored back to Mail and MS-SA EXP should run with some other train
Anything else

Not sure whats the purpose of MAS SA Express being with CR . It can be given to SA div maintenance and made RSA with some other train or stand alone. Mail and Express should have RSA and both should start from MAS instead of MS. Mail should start MAS at 07:30 the old dadar express slot.

In SR, you can find many such bizarre arrangements.
SBC NCJ daily is a SCR train. PDY Bangalore is connected through a CR triweekly train. No dedicated train by SR in these sectors.
MS SA is CR train. Zero SR train in this route.
No SR trains from Chennai to Mumbai. All 3 are CR. No SR train from Coimbatore to Mumbai,
it is of CR.

i think SR is just lazy to get their own trains, if MS SA was an SR Train, the RSA of Mail and Exp would not have been disturbed, even 12163's PM could be done at BBQ if it was in SR's hands

Both Express and Mail were SR trains earlier. Only Dadar SF was a CR train. A decade back these were moved to CR for maintenance, not sure why.

It would be better that MS SA express gets a dedicated rake, as it could become a 24 cars rake. Now due to RSA, it is only 18 cars rake, and the departure as MS-SA Express is mostly stinking due to immediate departure from MS.

Also in the morning, the Mail has only platform maintenance at MS. I guess even the water is topped up at RU only (correct me if I am wrong).

One more point, For Maintenance Gopalswamy Yard (MS) does a better job compared to Basin Bridge (MAS)

But one is common. Be it SR or CR, both these trains get the least priority with respect to better rake allocation.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
