Which is the oldest weekly train of IR, that still is running as weekly (extensions and change of route notwithstanding)?
Please mention the year of inaugural too.
Thank you all for the responses.

The answer is Sarvodaya Express 12473 from ADI - JAT (now SVDK). Introduced in 1979.

With no clear dates available for the introduction of many trains, even Himsagar 1980 was around that time, which Mr. Gaurav Dhaka got it right.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
