14673 was crossed by Garib Rath 12203 Dated 09th Dec'14 at Haroi. While 14673 was standing since 1:00 pm and Grib Rath 12203 came at 1:25 and crossed the earlier train? While enquired at Moradabad Station, Garib Rath 12203 was just heading with 14673 with marginal diff of about 10 minutes, why need to cross the 14673 at Hardoi and wasted the time of passengers for 25 minutes?????????????????????
I guess Garib Rath was made to overtake Shaheed because its a higher priority train and as you said it crossed hardoi around 1 pm i.e the train was very late and was trying to cover up the delay. Also added to fact that it has very less stops and has to return from ASR the very next morning at 4 am.

Why Shaheed exp is still running with ICF??????? "Dedicated Stainless Steel Rake has been rolled out for this train by RCF Kapurthala". Please see the news below.
Head line: RCF rolls out low-cost stainless steel coaches Reporter: Dharmendra Joshi Source: Tribune News Service Kapurthala, June 9 In what may be termed as another feather in its cap, the Rail Coach Factory (RCF) rolled out its first rake of low-cost stainless steel coaches for the Shaheed Express... Read more...
train yesterday. The Railways Department has planned to switch over the entire production of coaches to stainless steel coaches in future. The rake, comprising 28 coaches, has six variants. Besides the general class, sleeper class and AC-3 tier coaches, it has also been provided with AC-2 tier-cum-AC-3 tier coaches for optimal utilisation of passenger-carrying capacity. RCF General Manager Pradeep Kumar flagged off the rake at a simple function. Pradeep Kumar said this would start an era of stainless steel coaches for all mail and express trains, which were limited to only Rajdhani and Shatabadi trains till now. The RCF would manufacture 369 such coaches during this financial year. The RCF started manufacturing stainless steel coaches from 2001-02 with transfer of technology from M/s LHB of Germany. These coaches have inherent design features like superior aesthetics, much better ride quality and low-maintenance cost. These coaches were so far introduced only in high-end trains like Shatabdi and Rajdhani expresses due to cost limitations. In order to introduce these superior features in other mail and express trains also, the RCF has developed an innovative low-cost variant of stainless steel LHB coaches, cutting the cost further by about 40 per cent of the stainless steel coach. These coaches have exterior similar to Rajdhani trains and they have been provided with air-spring suspension for better ride quality. These coaches also have 12 per cent enhanced sitting capacity and require lesser maintenance. Link: click here Updated news is expected regarding the "Coach allotment" of 14673 Shaheed Exp. All are requested to provide latest news here so that everyone can know about the current scenario.
