If you think so by seeing ndls arrival times, ntes almost always shows incorrect destination arrival times esp if train is late. So it cant be concluded king had indeed OT 12313 & 22811 that day.

Was travelling by 12314 on 2 days back and spotted 12440 in GMO. My train went past slowly and 12440 was standing in the opposite platform. So does 12440 halt at GMO? Has it been given a technical halt or something here?

No halt has been given but it tends to stop 3 out of 4 times as it changes its route from NDLS-HWH line towards BKSC and stops for necessary signal clearance.

Last year almost throughout, there have been lot of delays in ALD-MGS route. Seems that now this route has got speeded up substantially but the delay has instead shifted to the Gaya-MGS route.

There seems to be a TSR being frequently imposed between Gaya and DOS in the Gaya-Mgs route and so trains getting delayed here almost daily due to not able to catch Mps upto DOS.
Is some maintenance activity going on in this zone? Anyone has any idea?

Ald-mgs has been speeded up but the greater delays of trains are in ald-cnb section. Gaya-mgs section TSR has not been imposed not in DN and that's for sure. Travelled in 22812 this Sunday. It left mgs at 2:05 and was West cabin gaya within 2 hrs with an avg speed of 100.5 kmph. Not sure about up direction.

No even in down it has been. But as I said, frequently it is there except some lucky days like your case. I just 2 days back came by 12314 and while it covered MGS-DOS in 1 hr 10 mins, immediately after crossing DOS bridge, speed got reduced and it took almost 1.5 hrs to reach Gaya from there creating around 30 mins delay. I checked status of all trains, even 12440 ahead reached gaya 40 mins late that day and all up trains had also got delayed in covering that section.
If you check the running histories, even yesterday this TSR was there.

Atleast for rajdhanis, CNB-ALD section is also going quite good. The issue is still in CNB-NDLS and now with the TSR in place, MGS-Gaya is also sometimes creating delays. Another section that has been speeded up is Gaya-DHN which nowadays takes 2 hrs 10 mins mostly and most make-up of delays in other sections happens here.

Rajdhanis n durontos of all other routes have now got into schedule as winter bids adieu to northern plains. But BBS bound rajdhani and duronto still hvn't been able to get back on track. Still being rescheduled daily both up down.
But seems that no extra rake is given in bbs too and so this cycle doesnt seem to fade....God knows how it will end

A strange thing happened when I was traveling by this train on 31st Dec'16. It was delayed and left Patna around 10 PM. This train and 12301 entered MGS same time. 12309 was allowed to leave MGS first. At outer signal after leaving MGS, it first stopped and started moving slowly in reverse direction :). I thought It will again go back to MGS. As it was rolling back, 12301 passed on side track and overtook. It continued going back and I thought 12313 would also overtake. Then It stopped going back and after sometime it started again its journey towards NDLS. It reached NDLS after 12301 but ahead of 12313.

Food quality aapne dekha hain other than when u travelled in Jan? I hvnt felt any aspect of service bad in 12301 when I travelled last in oct....the way u r saying.
It indeed runs like a king in normal times when its given full chance. Only frequent travelers will know that.

Because ppl whp travel less talk that way...I went by bct Raj twice 2 yrs back and one time found my 2A coach decent clean but less shining than even of sdah rajdhani. Another time though it was nearly same. These thngs are not always constant. Even within same train 1A/2A and 3A service quality may differ.

I always wonder why there is no Garibrath b/w Kolkata and Delhi. Kolkata supposed to be least economically rich compared to rest of metros (DEL,MUM,CHENNAI and BLR also) Now Delhi has GR from rest important metros and big cities. LKO has 3, Some have two rather (12910,12216 for Mumbai; 12569,22405 for Patna,)

Conversation in AC SF will best option in my view
Reason now GR coaches not manufactured (Not Fully sure about that)
GR is low fare train
I don't think so that Railway will introduce any low fare train

Are TSRs now in place in some areas because of republic day security? Trains running heavily delayed in hwh-ndls route, especially from gaya onwards to ndls. Fog doesnt seem to be reason.
