Suggest solutions for reducing trespassing of Railway tracks.

To Railway Ministry,
Subject- Avoid deaths and passenger load in local and and railway system.

More capacity always give rise to better system.

In locals, we can merge two trains which cover each platform in two halves. This way more passangers will get space to stand or sit rather falling from trains and die.

In other railways, we can have increased number of boxes. According to facts there are around 500 waiting tickets in any train around India. This shows that increase in capacity is must.
