I never consider the paper remarks. Not even the TT or the AVG speed. U can also remember tat we saw Nagavali SF Express made a impressive run despite it had a slack time. 40mins of 61km isn't an easy job for any express train. Even here, Duronto gets clearance almost til its tech halts. even BPL Shatabdi follows the same rule. There are days, when Shatabdi used to arrive early too. what is wrong when 5-10mins are added. Nothing will change. It'll do its old job except we are just fighting for the crown prince.

All of them are not personal comments. In the mask of stars, they can say anything. Don't worry, you are opening the eyes of the blind

i agree completely with you regarding the current counters. in fact looking at availability on the website does not give the correct picture of the load, we need the get the daily data of passengers actually there on the train each section. my hunch is the occupancy will be high because of the last minute current reservations

Sudhir, do you think that it is time to ARCHIVE THIS THREAD. A 270-post saga on a NON-ISSUE which serves no purpose except for a SHOW OF VERBAL MUSCLE POWER, ONE-UPMANSHIP and TOTAL IMMATURITY :)

Concept of 'Competition between 2 trains'- Doesn't sound funny? You are all well informed about Railways and some friends more than the dept.staff.
So I being a novaice need not remind you every decision which Section track to be strengthened, to which level, which train to go at what speedetc.(I can cite 1000 examples but I am cutting it) are decided by the bosses in Delhi and buruaeycrats sitting in Zonal Hqrs. Let it be 'King' or 'Emperor'. Can a Loco. Engineer(Driver) can decide to goat 140. Kms. if there was caution instructions. Any train if provided with appropriate Loco,Rake,and time and clearance will achieve the desired results. So which train is fast? is a unnecessary debate. If somebody fight which bus is better, whixh bus is fast, which driver is good though rash, there would be some meaning.

So many people fighting over a non-issue andalso troubling the moderator to adjudicate the fight seems funny. Sorry if I am unable to follow the gameplayed by my learned seniors. I suggest we can use the time,energy and expertise towards ensuring better service from our beloved IR.
