Talking about the schedule , it purely depends on the priority of the train , the track condition or the railway zone zones through which the train passes

Talking about the schedule , it puerly purely depends on the priority of the train , the track condition or the railway zone
Off course !! Wammies are very much capable of hauling a long distant train at a speed of 100 kmph approx or sometimes even more than that. Talking about the schedule , it purely depends on the priority of the train , the track condition or the railway zones through which the train passes.

Actually, AC Coaches should be placed in the middle of the rake surrounded by Pantry Car & First AC Coaches, thus separating their access from the other Non-AC Coaches of the train to prevent 2nd/3rd AC Coaches from hawkers, unreserved passengers & other such unauthorized elements :-)

As per my personal experience, this train as of now has NO Pantry Car & the reason may be because it's a Bi-Weekly Train in which only Veg Food is served at all times due to Religious Reasons. So passengers should carry Home Food along with them.

A slight difference can be noted in the finishing construction between the SLR and the other coach. The other coach has been finished with totally rounded roof top from the side and these coaches also have windows with equally alike rounded rectangle corners in their square windows. In the SLR Coach, it's roof top is not having the perfect round finish on rooftop from the side and such coaches have the 4 corners of their square windows unequally rounded ;-)

Ex.WAP- 6 with killer looks and Akal Takht Superfast in trail goes raging past Gurap!!!
.
.
On a cold 2012 winter afternoon, deadly looking 22411 WAP- 4 of HWH shed (ex.WAP- 6 of ASN shed) thunders through the reversible line of Gurap station on ER's HB Chord enroute with the 2 hours late running 12318 Amritsar (ASR)- Sealdah (SDAH) Bi-Weekly AKAL TAKHT Superfast Express.
The train uses the Amritsar- Jalandhar City- Ambala Cantt.- Saharanpur- Moradabad- Bareilly- Lucknow Charbagh- Sultanpur- Varanasi- Mughal Sarai- Patna- Jha Jha- Asansol- Burdwan- Sealdah route, and is the third best train (among 5 trains) connecting these two cities. A link portion for this train from Sealdah to Firozpur

(attachment/ detachment at Ludhiana) is in demand for a long time.
The Akal Takht (literally means The Throne of the Timeless One or Throne of God) is highest seat of temporal authority of the Khalsa and is equivalent to any parliament of world sovereign State. Akal means The Timeless One - another term for God. Takht means 'seat' or 'throne' in Persian. Akal Takht is located in the Harmandir Sahib complex in Amritsar, Punjab, and faces the Darshani Deohri. The train derives its name from the same.

And ude due to RSA, WB Sampark Kranri and SDAH UDZ Ananya is also enjoying the HA1 coach
Slowly all ASR bound trains are getting HA1.. First ASR SDAH Jalianwala, and now Akal Takht.. ASR HWH Mail already has one.. Now its turn for Durgiana.. And due to RSA, WB Sampark Kranri and SDAH UDZ Ananya is also enjoying the HA1 coach.. If Durgiana gets the same, then KOAA AGC will also enjoy the benefit..
