12434 is chasing 12622 between BZA and MAS with a gap of 9 mts. Both trains have non-stop runs between BZA and MAS. Can 12622 do the unthinkable of holding 12434 all the way till MAS or will 12434 overtake 12622? The 2nd outcome is mostly possible but fans would hope for the 1st. Even TN has had under 6hr runs in the BZA MAS Section, but today it is running nearly 15hrs late. Will SCR and SR controllers allow TN to stay ahead of Raj?

Finally 12622 has been overtaken by 12434. 12622 maintained a slender lead of less than 10mts for nearly 600 kms. Good run by TN

Has 12842 overtaken the rescheduled 12621? 12621 left MAS at 08.30AM and reached Gudur at 10.50AM and left Gudur at 11.00AM, 12842 left MAS at 08.45AM and crossed Gudur at 11.00AM. Last year fog affected late running 12622 overtook 12841 between BZA and MAS and this time 12842 is returning the courtesy. This is a rare occurrence and one train is running on a delayed schedule

Fog around Delhi throws rail traffic off gear at this time of the year. This results in some really interesting running schedules. SBC - MAS mail has a RSA with Karnataka Express and due to late running of pairing train left SBC at 08.45AM. 12610 SBC - MAS express left SBC at 08.00 and now the mail is closely following the express. Should wait and see if the Mail is allowed to Overtake or will the Express maintain its lead all the way to MAS. 12610 has a RSA with 12607 Lalbagh hence my guess is that It will reach before Mail

Looks like 12621 TN had overtaken 12649 KSK before Nizamuddin. TN was trailing KSK from Kazipet bypass but reached NZM few mts ahead of KSK

Yes its just operational reasons as KSK has to occupy NZM PF for a longer period.. TN just has to stop for 2 mins and depart.

Raigir overtake is not possible as its a halt station. Normally overtake happens before Raigir.

Sir, Raigir has only two platforms (mainline). Hence overtaking is 101% not possible. Moreover when both the trains are on time, overtake wont happen at all.

Sir, please check the RAG station once.
Also, as per WTT 12650 crosses KZJ at 04.40hrs whereas 12759 at 04.45hrs (as per WTT), whereas normal TT says it 04.42hrs. Hence there is no scope of overtaking.
Am saying this as per WTT. If you still feel it overtakes it's up to you.

Trains from VSKP side are running late due to which 3 MAS Bound SF's are running back to back. NJP - MAS left BZA at 11.30, Sangrami at 11.40 and Coromandel at 11.55. Coro is just 10mts behind Sangrami and NJP MAS is about 20kms ahead of Sangrami. Let's see if all 3 trains reach MAS in this order?

The order was the same, but Coro is getting Trolled badly near MAS. Both NJP - MAS and Sangrami reached at 19.30 and 19.34 respectively. At 20.24 Coro has crossed BBQ. Heavy trolling after Ennore. Now NZM - MAS Duronto is on its Tail.

Why no RSA? I thought the CC was changed to align with 12785-86 expresses so that the new MAS-SBC day express can start! When will they inaugurate this service?

Where does the TVC - MAS Super AC overtake 12608 Lalbagh? The overtake is not featuring in this website but as per TT 12608 leaves JTJ before 22208 but 22208 reaches MAS at 11.50 AM whereas 12808 reaches at 12.15 PM
