I want to clear everyone's misunderstanding about delays of ER trains in ECR.
Since lhb are introduced to raise the mps of trains to 130 kmph but in kiul pnbe stretch in some places there are 52 kg rails which can't support 130kmph speed.So ECR is replacing 52kg rails with 60 kg rails.Theytake mega block almost everyday to replace the rais. Work is going on full swing to finish it as soon as possible.
Places which has 52 kg rails are

soon rails of these places will be replaced by 60 kg rails to raise the sec speed to 140 kmph.These traffic blocks are short term pain and long term gain for the passengers.IT WOULD BE INAPPROPRIATE TO SAY THAT
ECR IS INTENTIONALLY DELAYING THE TRAINS OF ER OR OTHER DIVISION.It is my humble request to those bloggers who bash ECR to find the reasons behind the delays and then comment.

The most useless section of IR even if they replace 52 kg rails by 60 kg I don't think MPS will increase by 140 kmph...& most of the part of HWH RPH MLDT NJP section already having 60 kg rail do it'd difficult to belive that HWH PNBE main line still not having 60 kg rails....

It is done to ease the congestion at Pnbe and is a good move by ECR.

Congestion is huge .. This section also needs separate lines for passenger and for superfast.

There should be third line between Ara and Mka to ensure proper run of trains.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...
