Does Lower Berth Quota Tictket Released Immediately after Cancellation ?
Cancelled a LB quota seat for friday and it got added to AVBL quota for LB.
It was AVBL 11 before and after cancellation it became AVBL 12.
I thought LB quota doesn't get released immediately and gets allotted during charting only ??
Why do locos sometimes use the rear pantograph and sometimes the front pantograph? What is criteria for making this choice?
During winters, frost is a major problem. When the front panto is raised, it looks like this.. ">".. Now, any frost on the wires will be brushed aside by the panto in the forward direction, and the frost drops/particles will land outside the loco. However, if the rear panto is raised, it looks like "<", and here the frost particles will get deposited on the roof of the loco, which contains DBR and other valuable equipment. There is a risk of them getting damaged due to the frost deposited by the brushing action of the rear panto. For this reason, front panto is used in winter. However, this by no means is a convincing explanation, and it cannot explain why front panto is not used in rainy season. This is a subject of intense debate, and we have not found any satisfactory explanation from even 2-3 loco pilots, with whom...
Q. Why do locos sometimes use the rear pantograph and sometimes the front pantograph?
There is in principle no difference between using the front and the rear pantographs for most locos as each is fully capable of delivering the required electric current from the catenary to the loco. (The AC-DC locos are special in that each loco is intended for a different traction supply.) Generally on IR there is no need for both pantographs to be raised at once since there are usually no unusual situations such as frost on the catenary or increased current collection requirements seen with other countries' railways.
Yet, it is often seen that there are some definite patterns in pantograph usage. It has been the practice in many areas for locos to always have their rear pantographs...

it is incorrect.
RT CLS SUSPENDED has nothing to do with waiting lists or bookings. it is generally a temporary restriction on bookings for the said train on that particular day in the said class.

RT CLS SUSPNDED
This appears -- when the waiting list for any class had reached the maximum limit fixed and no further wait listed tickets can be issued.
It means on the particular date for which you are checking the availability of the route and class -- the booking is suspended.
While booking an AC First Class (1AC) ticket for two people, is it possible to specify a preference for 2-person Coupe?
1) Go to PRS and request clerk to feed "CP" option.
2) After the ticket is booked, approach CRS/DRM/CCM with an application for allotment of cabin/coupe/lower berth at the time of chart preparation.
Latter would carry more weightage and preference over the former.
Inform the Ticket supervisor that this is a gift and ask for a 2 berth coupe.
still you will get after chart preparation.
In 1st AC (and 1st class), the berths / seats are allotted only on charting.
Being the highest class, it is VIP prone and they are given the maximum comfort.
After the VIP absorption, it comes to the general passengers and if available, a coupe of 2 may be given to a PNR of 2.
Yet, suppose, on a day in a train, after VIO allotment, remaining there are a coupe of 2 and a coupe of 4 for 6 un-allotted (so far) passengers who have 3 PNRs of 2 each. The charting clerk can now give a coupe of 2 to only one PNR and rest 2 PNRs (of 2 each) will have to be accommodated in the coupe of...
If the passenger passenger gives verbal or written request (on the same reservation form) for allotment of Coupe than the booking clerk selects 'CP' option in PRS system to consider this request as first preference.
In case of any VIP/HO movement their PNR gets priority over any CP request made by any GN quota passenger.
At the time of charting such VIP PNR are manually entered in to PRSystem for priority allotment of coupe.
How to go from Chennai Central to Chennai Egmore?
If you are going from Egmore to Central just take a local heading towards the beach and if heading from Central to Egmore take a local going towards Tambaram side........in both the cases you should get down/board up(depending on the situation) @ Park.I am sure you are pretty much aware of it but still i just wanna make your journey as hassle free as possible.So starting from getting a ticket and standing in the queue,waiting for the local and getting to Park from either side should take you around 15 mins. but yeah the actual journey time should be less than 3 mins. or there about,so if you are not in a hurry then go with the local,pretty cheap and cost effective and quick way to get to your destination if you calculate the distance purely on the travel time.Depend on autos as a last resort and if it's a...
