Mumbai Kochuveli Mumbai Garib Rath Express trains

The Garib Rath express train is one of the premier trains introduced by the Indian Railways in 2005 to provide fully air-conditioned travel to those passengers who could not afford the expensive tickets of the fully air-conditioned coaches as in Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express.

Therefore, the Garib Rath, whose name means “Poor Man’s Chariot”, was introduced with the facilities of being fully air-conditioned and running faster than most other super-fast express trains running presently.

The maximum speed of Garib Rath trains is 130 km/hr which is the same as Rajdhani’s top speed. However, in Garib Rath trains, passengers are not normally provided with blankets and pillow and they have to pay extra to get those.

They have continuous running electronic display which will show distance remaining, next station name and expected time to reach there. The coaches are also decorated with beautiful paintings of Indian heritage artwork. The emergence of the Garib Rath has led to more connections between commercially important routes, where these trains run faster and make fewer stops.

Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, formerly known as Kurla Terminus, is a railhead in a suburb of Mumbai, India. LTT is managed by the Central Railway. The Kurla and Tilak Nagar suburban railway stations are located nearby. It is one of the railway terminus within Mumbai city. The others being, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus ( formerly VT ), Dadar on central railway, and Mumbai central and Bandra Terminus on western railway line. LTT has balanced the crowd from CST station.

In 2003, the Central Railway decided to expand LTT to take on more rail traffic, as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus had reached its saturation point, and was unable to handle any more express trains. In 2006 the Mumbai division of Central Railway cleared the designs for construction of a swanky station complex to replace the dilapidated terminus complex. The new station complex design was prepared by the architect P K Das. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) also agreed to construct a ramp from LTT to the flyover to be built nearby, as part of the Santa Cruz-Chembur Link Road.
