I am very much agreed with you regarding NJP & PURI Shatabdi and if I feel am not incorrect, these Shatabdis will be stopped in near future as the ROU & PNBE Shatabdi stopped
My proposal is to run Double Decker Sleeper coaches for overnight journey in both the routes
Will you let me know how the seats are in the DDs ? Whether the coaches are AC or not ? The details regarding the Double Decker coaches (preferably with a photograph)
As you are well aware that since I lived in a remote place of Sikkim, it will not be possible for me to see the DD coaches in near future

And this is PF 21 -- the so-called 'premium' platform for the most prestigous trains
img2509.jpgRail Neglect
--------------
Despite running premium trains and tall claims of world class catering and wifi in Rajdhanis, IR is yet to make the most basic of passenger amenities - a proper platform for boarding / disembarking carriages without hardship.
Here is a photo of 12245 Duronto waiting at PF 21 of Howrah Jn (HQ of two zonal railways) -- showing the ridiculously low platform height and the difficulty which a small child / senior citizen has to face while boarding. Even a healthy 5 feet 6 inch adult with luggage will have trouble. And this is PF 21 -- the so-called 'premium' platform for the most prestigous trains.

not only this platform but all of the platforms except pf-23 of the new complex have the same problem. Whereas the platform height of the old complex platforms and pf-23 are just perfect. Don't know why the platform level of the new complex platforms kept so low as these were constructed much later than the old complex.

Howrah may get Executive Lounge...
.
Jayanta Gupta TNN
.
Kolkata: The Eastern Railway (ER) is considering a proposal to create executive lounges at Howrah and Sealdah stations for long-distance passengers. Officials are now trying to find out whether such lounges will receive sufficient patronage. Such a lounge has already been set up at the New Delhi station by IRCTC.
“There is no paucity of space at Howrah or Sealdah. Such lounges exist at nearly all major airports. People who don’t plan to stay overnight need not book hotel rooms. They can check into the lounge for a fee and

freshen up. There can also be a tie-up with a restaurant through which passengers can order breakfast and have it in the lounge. Before leaving for work, they can deposit their luggage in lockers and collect these when catching another train out of Howrah or Sealdah,” ER general manager R K Gupta told TOI on Wednesday.

Since he took over recently, Gupta has taken several steps to improve passenger amenities at Howrah and Sealdah. He has urged senior officials of Sealdah division to improve movement of long-distance passengers and suburban commuters at the busy station.
“I have noticed that there is a lot of cross movement with people moving across the concourse area. This is a matter of inconvenience and we are trying to rationalize this, particularly during peak hours. Space is not a problem. All that needs to be done is regulate the flow of people. We will also seek professional help to redesign the parking area outside the station,” Gupta added.
During the day, the GM released a CD of rare, old photographs and video clippings on ER’s history. After his taking over, the process of digitizing old photographs, maps, time-tables, magazines and books concerning ER, one of the oldest railway zones in the country, has started. The GM also proposes to make the rail museum at Howrah more attractive to get more visitors.
