There are lots of positive changes in last 2 decades. This pictures are memories for all those who spent decades travelling in Mumbai local trains. If you are travelling today, you know how has railways and things inside local trains have improved and well maintained compared to past 20 years. The platforms are clean, toilets are not filthy, dustbins are seen on place, spitting of tobacco and pan etc is rarely seen, people are getting better with civic sense, lots of new trains added, ticketing technology improved, Railway line crossing has been reduced, travelling on rooftop and windows is 100% out now.


Security has been increased drastically and women travelling in local trains is much more secure compare to those days. Due to the quantity of crowd and unrestricted entry in Mumbai, It is practically impossible to get 5 out of 5 in the score, Still thumbs up to Mumbai local trains and Indian Railways for the kind of job done.
