According to veteran railfan Anindya Da :
In old days, in London, or UK as whole ... the train numbering system followed this patter : any train coming towards London was christened UP & that going away from it was called DN. Now when the British opened Great Indian Peninsular Railways, they carried over that numbering system from UK & was implemented in Bombay & Madras Divisions ... as a result WCR, CR & WR still now follows this practice. The trains leaving Mumbai are called DN & the end digit of the train number is EVEN & vice versa. But the alreadt prevailing East Indian Railway ( the forerunner of today's ER, SER, ECR ) followed the reverse system ...
...
more...
that is any train going away from Calcutta was called UP & it's number wud end in an ODD digit & vice versa. This system followed the logic of MSL ( mean Sea level ) afaik ... as Calcutta is at sea level so every train departing it was designated UP & the train number ended in ODD & vice versa.
But after saying all these it shud be remembered that IR doesn't follows this rule strictly & there are numerous exceptions ... but I can say this much confirmedly that all ER trains follows the same convention with no exception ... departing trains UP & arriving trains DN .. UP trains with ODD digit & DN trains with EVEN digit.

Lemme show u some truth and factor: SLN-LKO-NDLS-UP line
1. 12391 Shramjeevi is UP: running away from Home Div (Rajgir to NDLS)
2. 19604 SLN-AII Exp is UP: Running towards Home Div (SLN-AII)
#
Both
...

have two things:
1. One is running towards & other away from home Div, still both UP
2. One is Odd, while other is even in its numbering, still both are UP
#
Common Factor: Both run on UP Line & hence are UP!!

Kindly check theory with reality & find whats true!!
This UP & DN issue has been mugged many times!!
Only one thing was close enough & that was, if number even, train is Down, while if its Odd, train is up.
But to hamper this logic, SLN-AII & PNBE-INDB Express prevail.
So
...
more...
only one hard n fast logic, train running on UP Track or UP direction or UP, indifferent to serial number, Home Return or other related logic!!
