I have to book 2AC or 3AC ticket (for two persons) in Vibhuti Express for Varansi- Durgapur for date 19.04.17. 3AC availability is showing as GNWL/AVAILABLE. What does this mean- are seats available or in waiting? Will I get confirmed seat or waitlisted? Also, 2AC status is WL-1. If I book in 2AC, what are chances of confirmation? Pl. reply.

Hello everyone. My parents live near Bokaro and always take Bhubaneswar or Ranchi Rajdhani for going to New Delhi. However, this time, I insisted them to take Howrah Rajdhani from Dhanbad and have booked their ticket in the same. Their journey date is 21 Dec. What difference can they expect in Howrah Rajdhani compared to previous two Rajdhanis in regards to service, comfort, food and other parameters?

And also, today's 12306 has also got rescheduled by 14 hours, that means there is possibility of another history being created, I.e. 12305 from HWH end can be rescheduled if it doesn't get proper 8 hours TAT.

Completely agree with you. Even after 15 years of introduction of LHB's, only a handful of trains are running with LHB coaches. The speed of conversion from ICF to LHB is very slow.

the officials are acting silly. The modifications they want i.e. longer coaches and greater ground clearance would negate the advantages that Talgo offers in the first place. sense would, hopefully prevail over officials and RM and the project should go through.

2. Mumbai Rajdhani- Dec'2003 (First Rajdhani to get LHB)
3. Bhubaneswar Rajdhani- Jan'2009
4.

Trivandrum Rajdhani- July'2011
5. Bangalore Rajdhani- April 2012
6. Ahmedabad Rajdhani- Apr'2012
7. Chennai Rajdhani- 2012
8. Ranchi Rajdhani- June'2013
9. Jammu Rajdhani- june'2013
10. HWH-RNC Shatabdi- Dec'2013
11. HWH-NJP Shatabdi- July'2012

These dates were noted by me in a diary last year after searching the IRI and other websites (only reliable sources used). I am not sure about the dates of LHBification of HWH or Sealdah Rajdhanis but it may be 2006. Other members are requested to add the dates of LHBification of remaining Shatabdis and Rajdhanis so that this list gets completed.

For BBS Rajdhani , its bit of Wrong updated.
I clearly remember...When i used to live at Jalandhar Cantt (2005-2007) and used to regularly take BBS rajdhani from NDLS to BLS, at that time itself, Rajdhani was LHB.
Rake Transfer was done from NR to ECoR once it got LHB. This got LHB in year 2006-07.
