Yes, Prabir, this sort of mismanagement is quite characteristic of Howrah Station. Imagine the plight of a passenger who wants to board the Falaknuma Express departing from the New Complex at 7.25 am. Despite Saraighat being on time, he will have to miss the ongoing train.

In this context I would like to mention that 12345/12346 Saraighat Exp is one of the most important trains of Eastern Rly,which gets the priviledge of departure from PF#9(along with trains like 12301,12311,12303,12381,12307 etc),which is very close to the Bay for entry & exit of vehicles

If I was the passenger I would get down from the train & move on to new complex platform,after crossing the yard.The train was standing very near to the station.

Good move if you are a lone passenger with limited luggage. But if one is travelling with the family and/or luggage/aged persons, then it is a difficult proposition, Prabir.

This problem is not only with Howrah, its seen in almost all stations down in south too. Before 9am, MV-MYS express will reach Mysore and it will be made to halt outside for almost 15-20 minutes and reaches Mysore station by 9:20am. This is almost daily affair there:(
Most of the trains reaching Bangalore Cantonment will not depart immediately and again will be made to wait outside Bangalore city station (for this reason people always miss connecting trains).

    by: Rahul K😎🚂~  Today (19:57)


    एक के बाद एक हो रही ट्रेन दुर्घटनाओं की असली वजह 'मिशन रफ्तार' है, जिसने पहले से यातायात के दबाव से ग्रस्त रेल पटरियों को क्षतिग्रस्त करना शुरू कर दिया है। रोजाना पकड़े जा रहे दर्जनों रेल फ्रैक्चर इसका प्रमाण हैं। इनमें ज्यादातर को समय रहते दुरुस्त कर लिया जाता है।...

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

    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.

    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...
