Good suggestions and can be implemented more  
In my opinion there are no coolie on the stations it all acts like snatchers robbers and extruders. Instead of Rs.40 or Rs.60 charges fixed by railway they start demanding Rs.300/- The trolleys at Howrah and Sealdah station also vanished which was a quite convenient system. Mamta has abolished that and now allowed the coolie to charge according to their choice. Every where in the world the trolley system is there why can't we can introduce this in India? more  
Whenever some one misuses senior citizen quota, that berth/seat need to be forfeited and the passenger must be sent to the general compartment after charging him the penalty. more  
No escalators as Railways will not be able to maintain them, escalator at nagpur is proof. insted ramp type bridges should be constructed at all stations. more  
A VERY GOOD MOVE,PROVIDED IT IS IMPLEMENTED . SOME SEATS SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR SENIOR CITIZENS AND WOMEN WITH KIDS IN THE WAITING ROOMS.ONLY PASSENGERS WITH RESERVATION SHOULD BE ALLOWED INSIDE WAITING ROOMS.IN SOME PLACES THE ATTENDENT FOR N AMT . ALLOWS THE WAITING ROOMS TO BE USED AND SOME OF THE W.ROOMS AND TOILETS ARE IN AV.V DIRTY CONDITION more
