Absolutely wrong stamp & wrong reason for void.
PLZ see attached image. Today only Moderator sir has entered "similar" timelines (TT & news) for one special train.
So how this TL can be void?

Often these days, the first news of a new Special train is announced in newspapers with only the Starting & Terminating stations, Source Departure Time, Destination Arrival Time, Start & End Dates of Run, and Departure Days. The full TT is usually not available with such advance notices.
In cases where the following MINIMUM details are available:
Starting & Terminating Stations.
2. Departure Days.
3. Start & End Dates of Run.
4. Source Departure Time.
5. Destination Arrival Time.
we CAN UPDATE the TT, even though the full TT with intermediate station Halt times is not available yet. The full TT can be updated whenever it becomes available.
Pl. confirm such TL Entries, after checking that the minimal details correspond to that given in the News article. ALSO, pl. DO mention in the Latest field that the train is NOT non-stop, but that the full TT will soon be uploaded.

We do need to add the note in the Latest field that the full TT is soon upcoming. Whatever mechanism we currently have to remember to add the train when full TT is available, the SAME mechanism can be used to remember to update the partial TT when the full TT becomes available. The Pending Trains list can be revamped so that TLMs can manually add Trains with partial TTs, which are supposed to be updated later.
The important advantage here is such Trains will start to appear in Search results
at least between the End Stations, and passengers can start making plans to use that train. Otherwise, many travellers will lose the opportunity to use the special trains, and make alternative plans, only to regret later.

    -@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...
