If you want to do business do it with correct motive... That's what missing with Indian Railways... And their is also no place left for Comfort, Cleanliness & Punctuality... We Indian Middle Class has no option left, other then using Indian Railway as a communication media...
.
Take for example Kolkata - Siliguri/North Bengal Connectivity, even few years back their was only one decent train Darjeeling Mail & that too it was the least punctual train in Indian Railways with using old coaches from rejected trains... At that time we used bus service from Kolkata to North Bengal... Now road condition is in a state that people think twice before travelling...

KYQ->NJP avg speed 51.89 kmph
NJP->Kumedpur avg speed 40.23 kmph
now tell me who's responsible to delay trains in NFR? is diverting all trains via NCB means they'll not be delayed?

one thing is very clear all SF trains will only and only run through NOQ,NCB section and the track is being upgraded and equipped to handle high speeds(upto 110kmph).Doubling is going on and will ensure high entry and exit.What APDJ-SGUJ needs is proper intercity travel trains to connect to nodes i.e.NCB,SGUJ.For that that line needs to be de congested.It needs to be remembered that DMUs,I/Cs are the key to this line and some region centric long distance trains can be allowed.

but one thing is very clear i.e. now we have an wide rang of trains to choose from.Padatik was a notable addition some years back and then we had the grand entry of Shatabdi.NBengal again doent gets attention due to its lack of industries heavy industries to be precise and again though it falls in north eastern zone but doesnt officially taken in the North Eastern Region and consequently doesnt get any facilities and subsidies.For Example Rail Axle Factory NJP could not get a PPP partner.Surely if this factory would have started,there could have been a triple line easily.Ther would have been dedicated lines and funds would have automatically flowed

All premium trains and high cash producing trains should definitely start from HWH itself.Less important trains should be shifted to KOAA,SHM,SRC.SDAH should not have much of long distance services.Thats why I was little surprised when they announced Patna Duronto from Shalimar and without any stoppage at Santragachhi(as per duronto norms).
Dankuni can definitely be developed as a new terminal due to its proximity to NH-2,NH-6.The approach road needs to be prepared with huge areas for Public and private transport.2010 rail budget saw a notification regarding the feasibility survey.Dankuni is going to e the next induatrial,logistics and manufacturing hub of West Bengal.Ddicated freight corridor will terminate here.So endeavours should be made to start thinking on those lines.Even years of finally preparing model to renovate Santragacchi,it has not been taken.

yes with 1200 rs sleeper fare people can easily travel dibrugarh-kanyakumari...why travel only 600 km? so 700+ bookings mean people are ready to spend....better they convert darjeeling mail into premium train

its actually tooooooooooooooo much...but how can u say empty rake? 10 out of 12 sleeper coaches are already booked & ac coaches booking is now in RAC.
yes for return journey,premium tag was not necessary especially when departing NJP @ 12.35 & reaching HWH after midnight.

i agree with the premium train & dynamic fare concept but IRCTC's algorithm needs to be modified a lil...as for return journey also they're charging exorbitantly when everyone knows this slot from NJP is a super flop one.
