But, this cleanliness can continue to be maintained only with sustained efforts.  Apart from such efforts by railways, the passengers, public and other stakeholders should extend their active cooperation in maintaining cleanliness at railway stations, tracks and other railway premises.

The Salem Division of Southern Railway appeals to rail users and the general public to join hands with the railways in this noble cause of maintaining high standards of cleanliness at railway stations and in trains.
