Gotta love those daily commuter trains at CST in Mumbai !
Here's a French tourist's capture from 2007 that shows some
things never change even if it's 30 years later. Sure, it's a whole
lot cleaner, modern, organized, digitally sync'ed and catered

population remains unchecked, the seating stays up for grabs
even with a monthly pass. Thank goodness they have all that
'spare' seating on top of the trains !
Here's an Indian blog that mentions an Indian entrepreneur
who came up with the ingenious idea of providing insurance
for getting caught traveling without ticket. Which is not quite
the same as ticketless travel insurance....
