No...its the tourists....241 is a very well patronized train and very very popular. Moreover, the Shimla-Manali sector has one of the best tourism infrastructure in India...making it more popular....only during the monsoon, you may find tickets in 241 in a short notice....
....life is a journey.....and the journey is more important than the destination........

Bhaswaran has hit the nail!

And 90 people doesn't make it "peak tourist season"! It is off-peak for sure, you get room rates at the half-rate around Nov - my experience says so !
Did you wear the other person's shoe today?

Though it may be a matter of personal choice and you may think otherwise .... still... as far as my personal experience goes ,

If I have been in your place, I could have kept C1-2 and cancelled C14-15
