SWR negligence
What a sad state of affairs for one of THE oldest trains of southern India. By clubbing the rake sharing with Karnataka Express, and not providing for a spare rake in winter, throughout Jan 2017, this "Mail" has been reduced to a "Day" train so many times. Passengers be damned! Book elsewhere if you want an overnight journey! :(

Well, the sad part is, there isn't even an "elsewhere" to go. Barring a couple of days, Sunday NOT being one of them, Mail is the only overnight option for SBC-MAS. Where does the HUGE Sunday crowd vanish? None of SWR's business it seems.

Can any Howrah expert tell us about the "Old Cab Road" that seems to pass right in the middle of the station, parallel to the tracks, possibly between 2 platforms, and then joins the Bankim Setu at the far end. How long has it existed? Was it there in 1972? Is the access to this road still available to the public? Can someone from Kolkata please record a video of riding on this road & post it here/on Youtube. Thanks!

Can someone please mark the 4 tunnels on the DHQ - MJY section as spots for which photos can be added?
As per my understanding the tunnels on the North-South line (with all it's twists & turns) from DHQ to MJY are marked as 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A respectively. I am not aware of how the tunnels on South-North line from MJY to DHW are marked, presumably they are 4B, 3B, 2B and 1B?
Thanks in advance!

Conveniently IR does not mention that the deviations will add a 5-6h delay - at least so in the case of the Karnataka Express arrivals at SBC for the last 2 days

Arriving 15m and 5m late for the last 2 days. So, I suppose it is back on the regular route. It is still shameful that IR cannot ensure on time arrival of a train that has so much slack built into it's timetable. I suppose that we must be thankful for 5 or 15m delays and not complain! :)

Sep 09 2015 (12:22)   12193/Yesvantpur - Jabalpur SF Express

A quiz question that seeks answers from the rail-fans, rather than provide one ...hope it is of interest to some of you
What would be the smallest and largest ratios of journey time to train crossings at "stations", whether intermediate or regular? Let us make it for long-distance trains (min 1500 km) only
Example: 12193/Yesvantpur - Jabalpur SF Express has a journey time of 30h 25m and has "only" 50 train crossings listed on the time table. Just 50! That is one in every 36m 30s, as a ratio. :)

IR should provide them with a safety harness, if they indeed need to hang out of the door as suggested in other posts. Sad ...may his soul RIP
