The time that Duronto should cross leave Madgaon after its technical halt is 12:40 pm
What will d controller do in this situation??
Supposingly the Duronto arrives Madgaon at 11:45 am, 45 min behind schedule.. The time that Duronto should leave Madgaon after its technical halt is 12:40 pm..
There is a Mumbai bound Jan Shatabdi which has to leave Madgaon at 12:10 pm n which has to reach Mumbai before Duronto..
Now what shall d controllers do..
We all know Durontos timings at Technical halts can be altered, as it is not a commercial stoppage..
So, what will controllers do now..
A) Give a green Signal to Duronto after

My experience is that the Duronto is kept on at Madgaon and the Jan Shatabdi leaves first from MAO

Since Cheran Express leaves CBE at 2220 and Alleppey Express leaves CBE at 2215, how is it that it is marked that Alleppey Express overtakes Cheran at Tirupur. Kindly clarify or correct

I think the new trains proposals are in direct relation to the number of seats BJP got in that state. NO trains to Kerala. One train through Tamilnadu!!!

See the Current Booking Availability at CSTM. All the trains which will leave in the next couple of hours have vacant setas/berths. Note Howrah Duronto has 72 2A berths available which means more than on full bogie is vacant.

This is quite obvious as this is off-season.. In spite of revised fares, IR will have more than 100% occupancy after a month or so.

I am seeing that consistently 11013 LTT-CBE Express reaches SBC by one hour late every day but reaches CBE on time. Reaching SBC at 2300 hrs is really inconvenient. The delay is due to innumerable stops between Hindupur and SBC for crosssings. Inavraibaly it is 11013 which is stopped for the other trains to cross. Railways should ensure that this anomaly is set right. If it reaches SBC reaches on time and leaves on time it can reach CBE by 0630 hrs. This will give enough time for cleaning the rake for the return journey

Thats because its a bumper-to-bumer situation on opposite side and a lone Express towards SBC in that period- Also this train follows Sampark kranti owing to which that train mostly gets preference being a SF- To avoid congestion on opposite side, they invariably stop this loner which eventually turns up late
Only doubling this stretch can solve this issue- Or else departure from SBC should be changed to 23:00hrs

If the WL is not confirmed it is not legal to travel. If it is e-ticket the ticket is automatically cancelled and the amount is refunded to your credit card account. So in effect the WL ticket holder will be treated as ticketless traveller

What is have mentioned holds true for Fully WL E-ticket after Charting
Only Fully WL tickets shall get automatically cancelled..In such cases of Partially WL E-tickets they don't get both can travel by sharing the berth provided the TTE agrees (which they shall).But refund for the WL ticket cannot be claimed.
