I need a clarification. From Pune to Chennai for all trains berths are allotted on Pooled Quota but for Senior Citizen it is allotted on General. Hence if I want to book on 28th December 2014 as a Senior Citizen for 12063 I am able to book today but a Mumbai passenger cannot book. So if a Mumbai passenger wants to book as senior citizen tomorrow he/she will not get even at 0800hrs if the Pune passengers had already used up the senior citizen quota. Is this not unfair.

Bookings will open for all the stations enroute 60 days prior to the date of departure of the train from its originating station. Hence pax from Mumbai or Pune will be able to book at the same time.

You might be talking about train 12163. It arrives at PUNE after midnight. Hence the train that departs Mumbai on 27th december, arrives Pune on 28th December.
So booking is allowed from Mumbai for 27th December and from Pune for 28th December.

Train over water on one of the dangerous sea bridge.
Pamban bridge Rameshwaram Tamilnadu completed 100 years.It was awesome experience to see train on this bridge.Speed is restricted to 10-15kmph.
One can visit this bridge by taking Auto from Temple/station.its approximately 10km from Temple.They charge 350-400Rs to and fro but you can bargain.

I do not know SA will be useful Upto CBE the patronage will be very good. The earlier proposal for the MTP train is better. Also if it is upto SA why Departure time at SA is given. Alternately this can be made upto TPJ via ED KRR.

In 12677/12678 SBC-ERS Intercity Express for a very long time an AC Chair car runs as CE1. Why can't they make it as regular. What happens now is that those who are not aware of this do not book in the train when they see a long waiting list. This leads to wrong information given to the public

Was wondering why most rake compositions have AC coaches somewhere in the middle... surrounded by SL and/or GEN compartments. Is there a set of rules/ guidelines in terms of rake composition from IR?

From whatever I have seen and travelled the AC compartments are never in the middle. They are always immediately behind the General Compartments at either end. In fact my complaint is that when we travel by AC compartment we have to walk a very long distance to reach the entry or exit of platform.

Most of the trains leaving howrah have AC coaches in the rear. Corromandel and Chennai howrah-mail have AC coaches in the rear when they leave chennai or howrah, but when they reach destination it is in the front

Easily you can board or alight. There is no great rush. I had travelled from Pne to Thane twice. In fact the actual stoppage is also more than one minute
