This train goes upto Silchar while coming from Delhi but shortens it routes to starting from Guwahati while going towards Delhi. Why this strange behaviour?It doesn't have any RSA; so the rakes must be going upto Silchar, why not start it from Silchar in the other direction as well.
Three reasons: 1. 12501 is a tri-weekly train whereas 12401 is a Daily Train. 2. The arrival time of 12401 is way Earlier than 12501. 3. Older and famed trains are given preference as compared to newer and less famed trains in a SPECIFIC route. If... more...
12501 is exactly ON TIME [Somehow] at CNB but 12401 is 3 hr delayed at CNB i.e Both trains are exactly one after another departing from CNB , then NCR will allow 12501 to overtake 12401 just near Panki (CNB outer) to allow 12501 to maintain a Punctual run. But in Practical world , 12501 NEVER runs on time while arriving CNB , thus there is No way to allow a Already Delayed train overtake another delayed train. PS: Just see the May 8th arrival of both these trains at NDLS and you will see 12501 ne 12401 ko Overtake kar diya hai.
