Could someone point me to the exact reason of SF trains like 12304(Poorva) & 12324(NDLS - HWH Exp) getting delayed between Allahabad & Mugalsarai every single day by atleast 3-5 hrs?
Which out of track quality, no. of trains on this route, passenger load, signalling etc. is the main reason for the delay especially in this 160 km section?

URGENT!!! I have got Tatkal Waiting List # 6 for train # 12324 (From NDLS To HWH) for tomorrow's departure. Any chance of this tatkal ticket getting confirmed?
Are the quotas of other classes considered for Tatkal WL passengers during chart preparation? Pls reply asap because I can then go by 12304-Poorva in WL today itself.

I want to travel by train # 12274/New Delhi-Howrah Duronto Express tomorrow(7-Jun-14). I'm getting WL 208 ticket in SL. I had 2 queries regarding this:
1. Would I be allowed to board in SL class in this Duronto with a WL ticket? Does the normal scenario of WL passengers travelling by adjusting with confirmed passengers during the day time work on this train?
2. Since the catering charges are included in fare, would I be served food with a WL ticket by the pantry guys?

Kindly dont get confuse with all the replies. You are strictly not allowed to board DURONTOs with Waitlisted ticket. It will frequently announced at the station. If your ticket doest CNF/RAC by charting, Find another train or any other mode of transport to reach your destination..

Reach station well before the departure of the train and talk to the TTE. If berths are available you may travel,or else you will not be allowed to travel in this train. This is a duranto and W/L passengers are NOT ALLOWED
If you are allotted a berth you will get food,or else you may have to arrange on your own
