    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

    Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points: . 1. Previously, the tracks were crude with many straight line segments. Only on clicking on the individual tracks, it would assume a finer form. Now, the tracks are refined even on the overview...

No Boss ... it's that love where the Younger Son (SDAH Div) gets more love , where the Elder Daughter (HWH Div) gets left out and ignored knowingly OR unknowingly :(
I have witnessed it myself :0

Daughter would never be ignored that too under a Woman RM(I am right here).
Leaving apart both the divisions, there isnt much difference.
Its a total loss. Look the losses mounting high.
So, if you say that if a DD runs in HWH Div,its justified with the same occupancy ratio.

Are Sir , I have seen this difference . I have traveled in SDAH Raj in 2005 which had excellent service but in my HWH Raj (via PNBE) journey this year , I have found that it's services have deteriorated over the years . My last trip in 1998 in HWH Raj (via GAYA) was far better during those days . Rajdhanis are the Main Trains for any Zonal Railway [and it's Division(s)] . Looking at the Raj Services I can tell you that I am disappointed with this partiality between HWH & SDAH Divs . Come to Calcutta once and ask the people over here , you will then get to know :)

Ok,I have accepted and for some reasons I might not come to HWH for the next few years. But, how do you justify the running of this train w.r.t. to the both divisions?
I am not aware of services between those 2 trains but as per the avbl factors, they both are doing exceptionally well. So, if the quality of food deteriorates, that's a secondary issue. Here, in this case there are no passengers.

I agree with you on this point of scrapping a train service with little or no passengers , be it Double Decker or any other type of train (Just like I agreed with Bhanu Sir) BUT I still stick to my stand that a vast difference has come between HWH & SDAH Divs (Not only in terms of Food Quality but many other things in their Raj Trains) . Nice discussing with you . Should this Blog now be archived or do you want to say something else also ?
