Pic attached here is of 12670 Chhapra - Chennai Ganga Kaveri Superfast after Varanasi Junction at 02:20 when it was having 13 SL Coaches & 2 GS Coaches on 28 June 2022. (ICF Rake).

Now, its rake is been standardized and only having 6 SL & 2 GS.
Question is where are they gonna go now?
Passenger were sleeping on the pathway, was sitting on Gate, almost 3-4 people on each seat. And this was the condition in all Sleepe Coaches and the conditions of GS were just pathetic. At Varanasi Gate were closed by the travellers and were denying in opening it because of lack of space , so many GS passenger went to travell in Sleeper.
Most of the rush was of Chennai (almost 85%).

Now it is having only 6SL so passengers are gonna occupy the AC Coaches as well they occypied SL?

Due to slot issue this train frequency can't be increased to daily. Or else can be diverted via JBP Gondia Chandrapur route for shortest route

It's just recently received its LHB rake. I think new coaches will be added later on.

I remember criticising SWR for allotting very less coaches for KK and KSK, but then SWR added coaches to both of the trains in just a few weeks.

Not only today even 40 years ago it was like this only. As I said in a previous vlog I remember getting into a crowded Ganga Kaveri somewhere around summer 1981 in Satna with my father entering the crowded train and clearing our seats by occupiers from Varanasi :(

    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...
