    TRAVELING ON THE FOOTBOARDS AND ROOFS IN TRAINS SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY BANNED.

    Repeated announcements are made at the Fort Railway station against footboard travelling on trains. But the announcers must be taught on clarity of the messages they deliver.

    High time trains doors are closed and opened at stations only when the train has stopped. Automated mechanism would be difficult to apply, but a system where the head guard of the train could open and close all doors with the press of a button would be ideal.

    Some people ignore all warnings because they are uneducated and assume they are doing a very smart thing! No point of trying to advice such people.

    All train compartments must have auto doors,to save lives.
