friends i was surfing a website and got an interesting question for you all .
can anyone tell me why Chalukya Express (11017) is named as "chalukya" which was Bangalore Express before ?
why the train never runs on Tuesdays ?
and why the trains times were completely changed a few years ago to be sure of departing Miraj station in daylight ?

Forget the question, it doesn't matter as it's highly unlikely you'll be using the Chalukya Express (Train 1017)
But I did use that train once, and in 3-tier air con as well, never again, nobody told me story about why the train never runs on Tuesdays, or why the trains times were completely changed a few years ago to be sure of departing Miraj station in daylight, nobody told me the tale, nobody mentioned the Ghost of the Chalukya Bear.
Late one Tuesday night the Bangalore Express (as it was called in those days) departed Miraj station on a routine journey south, but as it crossed the Krishna River and started it's journey through the Jamkhandi Hills disaster was waiting on the track ahead.
