  1. is there any Agency system continue ? or closed? what about if server down and train time is over

  2. Railways caused major inconvenience to passengers, by reducing general compartments in cheran express and many others. Also noisy generators.

  3. I for one feel pity to the drivers whose train is completely airconditioned and their own cabin is a non-a/c one. Railway authorities should think about their aminities while keeping the safety part of the passengers in mind.
