Where was you when peoples update based on just information. They update only source and destination still is correct only. It gives initial ideas to peoples. Dont display childish behaviour and shut up. By the way Full TT is updated. It may be wrong for you but definitely correct for many.

Moderator sir,
1. Please look into this. The TT is updated wrong.
-
2.
...
more...
He is trying to bring altruistic angle to this by saying that he is updating for idea and such thing. This is wrong - correct TT was already posted in the forum at 12:55 /blog/post/2285967. He has done TL at 15:30. This TL is wrong and done for count increase only.
-
3. Will such wrong TT by an ordinary member be approved?
.........................
-
1. Coming to his behaviour. Sir I have complained to you many times where Admins have used their designation for misuse and shouting down members. I have suffered when I joined IRI last year.
-
2. From that time I have contributed my best to this site, tried to gain some standing, so that one day these admins cant shout and abuse members like me. From that time I was a vocal supporter of you making new members as FMs and TLMs like Mr. Subrat Srivastava.
-
3. This issue I raised at FM forum, but no action taken, since FMs are scared of Admins.
-
4. Finally this sort of abuse and name calling is totally unacceptable.
-
-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------
-
Note: Personally speaking - Many admins are helpful, encouraging, and appreciative. But few people are there who believe they can abuse and call names and get away with it.

Go to hell, everybody tries to give some available information to all. First of all that was not wrong TT. I was updating it stop wise manually, but because of your bull shit conversations only it got delayed. and now you are saying it was wrong. Try to have some patience.
I only updated both 17323 and 24. what is the error?

MANGALURU: What is in a (train's) name? A lot if it involves one railway minister naming it and his successor renaming the same. This is the fate of train 16575/576 Yesvantpur-Mangaluru junction-Yesvantpur tri-weekly express. Announced by then railway minister D V Sadananda Gowda in the only railway budget that he presented, he christened it Kudla Express when the minister came lay foundation stone for a road under bridge in lieu of a level crossing on August 16, 2014.
An official notification renaming Kudla Express as Gomateshwara Express came on May 3 much to the chagrin of the locals. Already peeved that the train initially scheduled to run up to Mangaluru Central is being terminated at Mangaluru junction, the latest move has agitated

them further. This was manifested in a protest that Tulunada Rakshana Vedike staged on Thursday. The vedike termed the latest decision as an attempt by Indian Railways to attack local sentiments.
Averring that the Vedike is not against the Jain saint Gomateshwara and naming the train after him, Yogish Shetty Jeppu, president of the vedike said, "Railways may name any other train as Gomateshwara Express. Changing name of a train for political considerations is an unpardonable act," he said, adding the name has been changed on request from former PM H D Deve Gowda at the newly commissioned Bengaluru-Hassan line at Yesvantpur on March 26.
What makes this renaming exercise all the more curious is an admission by South Western Railway (SWR) officials that it was done at the insistence of railway minister Suresh Prabhu. SWR was aware that Sadananda Gowda had named it Kudla Express as the city is referred to in Tulu. The zonal railway was also not oblivious to the fact that the locals referred to the train as Kudla Express even before its introduction on April 9 and its formal run from the following day.
This is also against the normal practice of Indian Railways to name trains by their originating place and or local personalities. Incidentally, Deve Gowda at the March 26 function had urged Suresh Prabhu to name Mangaluru Express as Gomateshwara Express and Hassan Intercity Express as Kalabhairava Express, a suggestion that Suresh Prabhu accepted on the spot. A bewildered Sadananda Gowda told TOI, "I will get the facts from Suresh Prabhu before reacting.

When your don't have any attachments to the subject being discussed and have any inkling to the sentiments of the subject being talked about, it is easy to be dismissive of this issue as a fight and give sanctimonious sermons.

all set to roll out the luxurious feature-packed Tejas Express whose coaches have been designed to bear speeds of up to 200 kmph! Reports suggest that the first rake of the new train will start playing between Mumbai and Goa - so get ready to zip across short distances with infotainment and luxury on board! While the coaches of the train have been designed to take speeds of up to 200 kmph (clearly with an aim to increase speed later), for now the train will ply at a maximum speed of 130 kmph. Tejas Express has also been proposed for Delhi-Chandigarh and Surat to Mumbai route.
From WiFi, star chiefs-chosen menu to LCD screens for entertainment - here's an exclusive preview of the Tejas Express!
The Tejas Express has redesigned seats with e-leather. There are 14 non-executive chair cars and they can seat up to 72 passengers each (3+2) configuration. The coaches have energy-efficient LED lights and digital destination display boards.

As stated earlier, Tejas Express will offer the facility of onboard infotainment - entertainment + passenger information. The 9-inch LCD screens with USB charger and a foldable snack table will ensure that your journey is comfortable and entertaining!

The new train will have two Executive chair cars (in 2+2 configuration). The Executive Chair cars have a seating capacity of 56 passengers.

The Executive Chair car seats have an adjustable head-rest, comfortable arm support and even offer airline-like leg support. The facility of leg support is missing in the non-Executive chair car.
The central table in the Tejas Express will also have infotainment screens ensuring that passengers sitting in the middle don't lose out on this new feature.

In line with the train's overall luxurious feel, the train's toilets have also been given a modern feel. Equipped with soap dispensers, touch-less water taps, odour-control system and occupancy indicators, the toilets in Tejas Express are a step up from the usual chair car trains.
Each chair car has a small pantry unit which is equipped with a boiler that dispenses hot water, a heating chamber, a refrigerating box and a chilling unit. The pantry also has a soup machine.
Yet another airline-like feature in the Tejas Express is that each seat has an attendant call button facility. This call button/bell is integrated with the berth reading light.

The coaches are equipped with CCTV cameras for better security. Additionally, a modern fire and smoke detection system has been installed. The power car has a fire suppression system.
In line with Indian Railways vision to make tracks defecation free, Indian Railways has installed bio-vaccum toilets in Tejas Express. This would also ensure that as against normal toilets that need 10 litres of water per flush, only 1.5 litre of water would be consumed.

The bogie of Tejas coaches have stainless steel discs - this means that the braking system is more efficient and the breaking distance is less.
The vinyl-wrapped specially designed exteriors are graffiti proof. The exterior has a bright colour theme of orange and yellow. The colourful exterior is in line with the looks of the new Humsafar and Antyodaya Express. Tejas Express has a dust-proof/sealed inter car gangway.
