Flexi fare effect sir. Max passengers in this are till Chandigarh and Volvo is a cheaper option now. In addition, no connection available from Kalka to Shimla at night, hence doesn't have good patronage. It's the morning Shatabdi (12011) which runs full.

Nizamuddin needs more platforms urgently than New Delhi or ANVT.
However, space constraints are there and only option could be to shift the ETS towards the yard/coach care centre.

As usual, Chennai Duronto departing late from NZM, problem compounded by one rake.
Interesting thing is it has been given a 22:30 departure from NZM tonight and will run just slightly ahead of the mighty TN. Would be interesting to see if TN keeps up or even manage to overtake it (considering the not-so-good priority the Duronto gets).

Duronto is cleared for 120 upto Lalitpur only and gets good priority only in NCR and SCR.
But you are right sir, that with its lesser stops, it will build a lead over TN.
Anyways, will be an interesting cat and mouse chase :-)

Nearly one month back, Duronto departed just 15mins behind TN, still trailed it till MAS. TN arrived MAS at 9:50AM while NZM-MAS Duronto arrived at 10:00AM. It doesn't get good priority though its running time is lesser than TN.

Re# 2154869-4            Tags   Past Edits
yeah..it all depends on the controller as well as the crew allocation too...as zones have to take care of the crew availability too as the train is running late which is completely out of schedule... so its all at the desertion of section controllers ..if they decide to let it crawl right behind TN then no one can do anything about it :D

Sir, the most convenient way would be (subject to time of the day):
- Take Yellow line till Rajiv Chowk
- Change over to blue line going towards Dwarka and deboard at Karol Bagh.
- Take rickshaw/auto/cab to Sarai Rohilla.
