Yesterday, somehow tolerated a very long journey by 12314 in this very foggy weather. Train started from ndls at 9:30 pm, took full13 hrs to reach cnb. Ndls-Cnb section totally crippled.

Train took up mps, journey became normal, better and faster after cnb and as train went further away from the dreaded ncr.
Good news is food arrangements are now much better than what I had heard
when fog initially started last week. Was served meals at second day noon as well as night even if just rice, dal, sabji. Also snacks...

There is urgent need to shift Govindpuri goods yard to somewhere else atleast not within 30 km vicinity of Kanpur city...This is the worst ever bottleneck present in IR network....Sad that Kasganj Kanpur & Kasganj Bareilly section not able to share any load from Delhi Kanpur section.

Time to bypass CNB like AD does. Intead of CNB some other station as PNK or GVpuri can be taken

Yes, goods trains are responsible for such high congestion in cnb area...but some ppl saying maintenance work is going on in this area for more caution after that accident few days back.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
