Why is there very little fare difference for child age 5-11 years for 3AC and 2AC for short distances like below 300 or 400 kms (even if no separate berth is opted) ? Ideally it should be half the adult fare like it comes for long distances.

Can anybody please confirm whether separate bedrolls are provided for all RAC passengers in 2AC and 3AC coaches ? Or is it that only 1 bedroll set is provided per berth ?

Does anyone know what is ticket booking algorithm followed for AC double decker trains for Bangalore to Chennai. (train no 22626)
My elderly parents would be travelling and I want them to get either middle deck or upper deck. Currently I booked 2 months in advance right in morning
thinking I would get middle deck but sadly I got lower deck. Right know 998 availability is there and I am thinking to rebook and try my luck again. Is there any sequence followed while allocating seats like lowed deck
first, middle deck next and then upper deck for 1 coach and then go on to next coach.
Is there any specific availability point where if I book I am likely to get middle or upper deck ?

Does any one have idea what criteria is used for deciding higher or lower train no for any train between its end journey points ? For eg if train goes from A to B and back to A which journey will get higher train no (A-B or B-A)
Like for eg which train will be 16613 (lower no) and which train will be 16614 (one higher no). Is there any fix rule for deciding this ?

The train which is down or goes away from the divisional headquarters which owns it is numbered Odd and train which comes back or is up train is coded as even number. For example Golden temple mail is train of Mumbai Central Western railway, so when it goes from Mumbai Central to Amritsar it is 12903, i.e. odd and when it comes back it is even 12904.

Someone once told me that the logic behind it was Main Sea Level of the source and destination stations. At least thats how it started, however now there are many exceptions. Not sure, if this is true.

No they can't be booked from PRS...
1. Defence quota is dedicated for Defence personnel they can book it from PRS.
2.Same is case with Parliament & DP they are dedicated for concerned departments and they only can book them by showing required documents.
these are unused they shall released for clearing normal passengers...
