Can anyone explain the concept, many newly announced trains are pending to be introduced and reason quoted is delay in rolling stock. But every season many special trains are run by different zones. rather why dont they use it for intro of announced trains. I can understand that specials are run using idle rakes lying but that is not the case with all specials. many specials are run using additional spare coaches given to zones. Can anyone explain this rake management for specials?

A new #twist to the proposed #zone.....A very sad one indeed...P.S: I know that this was already pasted in the news section, but am posting it under forum as it is an important issue and needs discussion...
"In order to fulfil the commitment of creating a railway zone for Andhra Pradesh, the Union railway ministry has in principle decided to split South Central Railway into two. The headquarters will continue in the twin cities.
According to sources, this decision was taken in order to satisfy Andhra Pradesh without causing any hardship to the 80,000-plus South Central Railway employees working here. The Centre came to this decision after an expert committee, constituted under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, did not favour establishing a new rail zone for Andhra Pradesh. According to sources, railway minister Suresh Prabhu will announce the decision in the Railway Budget on February 26.
The expert committee did not favour either setting up a new rail zone with headquarters at Visakhapatnam (presently with East Coast Railway) or at Vijayawada (with SCR), and left the decision to the Railway Board.
Who gets what
SCR Zone 1 to cover Telangana, with Nanded, Secunderabad and Hyderabad divisions.
SCR Zone 2, covering Andhra Pradesh, will get Vijayawada, Guntur and Guntakal divisions.
No SCR staff will be shifted due to South Central Railway bifurcation."

There is no meaning in what ever announced. Why again HQ in Hyderabad which doesnt touch the actual zone. New railway zone is a decision part of reorganization bill and many people like CM have given their commitment. Forming expert committee and all is a mere bullshit ultimately what politicians announce is final. But still some grip is missing in proposed new zone hope if our representatives pitch some more pressure it may come true. I have faith that railway zone will come in VSKP

Because it shares its rakes with Howrah-Puri Jagannath Exp. Primary Maintenance of this train is done at Puri. That's why Gitanjali is an Ecor train.
In this same way,Chennai Egmore-Salem Exp is also an CR train though its home zone is more than 500 kms away because of its rake sharing with 12163/64 Dadar-Chennai Sf
