12250 doing what it does so proficiently: Creating space for 12560 and ruining 12247/12248's reputation.Maybe after 10 years on someday it will finally reach on time.

The same thing again. All problems in the NCR are only for those trains which get delayed. Neither there is anyone to listen any complaint nor any one to take action. The old tactic of politics has been applied which is to assure and give hope in the name of something which is DFC here.
Ye to aise hi rahega. Jisko travel karna hai kare, jisko nahi karna hai wo apna apna samjhe. IR doesnot give a damn.

Reschedule is coming and a pretty big one like of 4-5 hours.Since its travel time is not going to increase I think IRCTC should star mark this train so that whenever people try to book tickets in this trash a warning message"This trash train will never reach on time" pops up three times atleast before proceeding OR they should paint the coaches of the train with the message"You are a big fool that you booked tickets in trashiest train of ER.

So seeing after yesterday's speeding(which was actually just a show off)everybody thought that it would reach on time.But it didn't even reach mughalsarai on time and after that the rest is clear.4:30 hours late.Actually it has become habit for this trash train to get rescheduled.For the past few weeks its getting rescheduled.It clearly indicates that ER needs atleast 20 hours to make it reach on time and railways is forcing an impossible time of 16:40 hours on them.Its a good train between howrah and mughalsarai and after that only high priority trains or polictical priorites trains matter and rest are just ignored.Over the top of all this fog time is also approaching.So think atleast 10 times before you even try to book tickets in this trash train.Go for poorva or other superfast for comfortable journey rather than getting fooled by this train's time first and then enduring a painful journey of...
30+ hours this winter.I would suggest people to stop booking in this train for few weeks

Still better than rest of SF lot compared to 12323,12329,12311.
Atleast tickets are in same price range and no surge. Upto Mgs any train is good. Later lesser said the better. Anvt further adds the cross over issues from Ndls bound trains.

As i predicted correctly 12250 will be rescheduled and it is.I think it was a better option for ER given that they don't want to run it on time. Isn' it interesting that cleaning of yuva requires more time than Duronto?I mean even though there was still a gap of around 4 hours but still they require more time to clean it than Duronto?When duronto 12259 arrives at 3:30 pm still 12260 departs at correct time of 7:40 pm.It is rescheduled when it arrives after 4 pm which rarely happens though.Anyway today it looks like they have stopped updating about 12250.

Well Well 12582 overtaking yuva at sahibabad.Why railways is taking tension over such a trash train.Just cancel it so that others can run on time.So much for being in top 10 fastest trains.On "brighter" side there is still scope of decreasing the time taken between asansol and howrah.Why 2:40 hours when 12249 is "supposed" to be covering the same in 2:10 hours.

Well average speeds of rajdhanis are realistic in the sense because they run on time.Their speeds are also technically feasible.For example:82 kmph is right average speed for rajdhani.This yuva damages the reputation of other yuva whenever it runs.This train is last resort train for everybody.As we know we can always find empty seats even 2 days before sometimes.Its not like seats are filled before a certain amount of time is left like with other yuva where seats are actually filled before certain amount of time is actually left.Moreover if it is always delayed by 3 hours or more then most of the people will travel through locals from dhanbad and get their money back.Nearly 50% of CC is always empty.Instead of taking this much loss everytime why not run duronto in its place?Also if time is increased then how passengers will be fooled and lured to book tickets in this train?...

2 Popular Ignored Trains of ER!!!! SDAH Duronto and Yuva AC!!! Well at least SDAH DRNT arrives with lesser delay than this train!!! When Introduced they ran on time right!!! Now Things have changed!!! Name and Fare is of SF/Luxury!! but not in punctuality!!!!
>>> Why is ER zone quite???? Are they not concerned regarding these trains?
>>> Why aren't the Zonal Managers and Seniors are not try to improve the effort as many of them will travel by a less time journey trains!!!
If Such Premier trains are getting late sometimes there may be excusable circumstances!!! but these two are continuously late since years!!!
>>> Those Web Grievances will no more work!!! You will only get to See CASE CLOSED so instead Tweet!! Write on paper take a snap post it with tweet as it's only 140 Characters!!!
>>> Well I tweet to DRM's in this way if any thing lengthy is there to say and they definitely reply!!!
>>> Everyone who is concerned about these trains do tweet to DRM's along with Prabhu Sir!!! until they wake up and change!! if everyone will raise their feelings then there will be a change!!! If One or Two Does this no one will look into them!!! If DRM's simply say matter forwarded Passed on to Concerned then tag Suresh Sir!!! and do it!!! Sir will definitely look up and will bring a change!!! as he solved many!!! Hope he will bring change in these two trains too!!!

Well i think that Entire ER is taking out its frustrations on yuva which it gave them before when it used to run before rajdhanis as it made all zonal managers do all the hard work.Now duronto is duronto and yuva is merely a superfast like others.So they have to do some work for duronto now that fares have also increased.So duronto is not that much late,hardly by 2 hours at max and rarely between 2-3 hours.But yuva on other hand...what can i say.They can atleast increase the travel time of yuva because it will never run on time like this.See today yuva gave all the respect to khana station and so kept standing there for 30 mins or so and smiles came on faces of ER as they now got solid reason to delay this train.

When it comes to "can" there are a lot of options. Please do not get me wrong, I am not mocking but giving my view.
Either they can increase travel time of Yuva (which will defy their Mission Raftaar and seems impossible).
Or they can run it with correct and better controlling.
And so far Duronto is concerned, I agree if you're talking
in relative terms. It's right that Duronto is delayed less when compared to Yuva. But still 2-3 hours delay is too much especially when you pay surge fare.

Well Khana station's respect was pending for weeks and so yuva gently gave it to it by standing there more than 30 minutes.This comes as good news for ER as they now got an excuse to freely delay this train as much as they like.Well played.12250 will be rescheduled tomorrow.

Well if never reaching on time and making space for other trains both are unique arts then yuva is tha picasso of both of these.Getting rescheduled and making room for 82302 and 12560.Thats the job of yuva.It looks like railways has decided not to run this train on time.Well why not as it made them do hard work when it ran before rajdhanis.So they are taking out their frustrations now.

Well Yuva doing what it does best:Running at a speed of 55 kmph and making room for other important train running ahead of it.Instead of increasing the time railways decreased 2 more minutes.Well after sometime they may say only 16 hours(in dreams though).I still wonder how it came in top ten fastest trains but in reality shivganga is way faster than this train.

Well what's the use or benefit of "Overtake" when shivganga already did the damage required?Also as far as i observed duronto has overtaken shivganga more times than yuva in total.Also Duronto also overtakes 12581 many times which yuva is not doing for months.
