They run this service instead of keeping the rake idle at LTT.
on other days the rake is used by 12294/12293.
Don't ask me how it is profitable to run a train empty instead of keeping it idle...

We need a total of 48 coaches for 2 rakes...
How much time will it take if we are getting just a couple of coaches every week?
Any idea when the new rakes will be put into service?

I doubt 80 coaches can be housed at MAO for a couple of days till everything is put in place... they don't have place.
Many coaches will have to be parked at Verna yard.

I don't think this will be the first LHB to pass by Dudhsagar.
In 2014 when 50105 derailed and few months later agoods train derailed, I think 12431/12432 and 12283/12284 were diverted along this route.
I don't have proof...
but the KR line was closed for a couple of days... So this route was the only option as 12431/12432 has passengers of MAO and

I think many coaches used by 10111 are pre-2000. So they are nearly 20 yrs old. I guess thats thier life span right? those coaches may be heading for scrap...
While some coaches which are as new as 2007 etc can be transferred to CR to be used as holiday special in a different rake...
Or they could be refurbished to be used by the 5010X passenger trains of KR which also use some rusted pre 2000 coaches.
are a couple of decommissioned coaches rusting in Verna. If an entire rake is kept there then yes it might affect frieght operations...

Speaking of trains requiring new coaches.
12051/12052 Jan Shatabdi does need to upgrade to LHB as the current ICF is not comfortable. If you have seen the 12127/12128 Intercity Rake you will get what I am saying abt "comfort".
16345/16346 Netravati express: I saw one of it's rakes in January using a 96 coach which was rusted and paint flaking off...

Just to elaborate....
I saw that the LHB 2S coach seats have push back...
the current ICF rake of JS doesn't have...
Thats why I said more comfortable...
The JS was once my most frequent
train for MAO-DR... It used to give a back ache after an 9 Hour journey...

Extending the train doesn't sound like a bad idea BUT...
It won't get patronage for a 17 coach train in the afternoon...
currently 22635/ 22636 run alomost empty except weekends...
and who wants to travel 13 hours in 2S?
extentsion IS a bad idea...
Want to extend it due to pressure from K'taka politicians?
try BGM or DWR... will get good patronage due less number of exsiting services...
But SWR may play spoil sport as they busy polluting Goa with Coal trains...
No time for passenger services...
They are doubling the tracks for more Coal trains no intention for passenger services...

DD and shatabdi leave Mumbai at more or less the same time... other than speed nothing else is different...
that's one of the reason's for poor patronage...
The return train from MAO to LTT does better as there is less competition...

I went to MAO today at 13:30...
There are no new coaches near PF 1.
The coaches near coach care centre are the AC coaches already photographed by railfanrohan.
I went on the Rawanfond
rail over bridge to get a view of the pit lines.
there was a LHB rake over there. I only saw the roof. as the view was blocked by an ICF rake ( i think this was the current 10112 rake) parked next to it.
I am not sure if this is the one.
Sadly I couldn't see if it was an Ac or Non AC rake...
Which other LHB rake could be there in MAO at that time?
MAO Rajdhani was standing on PF 3 when I was on the station, doubtful it would go and park it self in the pit pitlines within 10 mins...

Both the previous vistadome coaches are ICF.

I guess the best way to get a view of the coaches in the pit lines is to go to the Davorlim railway crossing and then walk towards the pit line...

Why they detached it at RN?
See tejas goes upto KRMI. There's no spare line to park a coah there.
But the main reason is that they don't have any shunting engines at THVM or KRMI.
Without Shunting engines, detaching the coach and parking it on seperate line is not possible...
where I know only MAO and RN have spare engines and shunting engines along the Konkan Line. Does SWV have engines as of now? They plan to build a terminus there... so I feel in future they might keep them there.
