12307/hwh-ju left at 3:30 right time from platform 3.
13010/Dehradun Howrah arriving on platform 2.
All happened in 20 minutes between 3:10 to
Busy time at the Grand Chord's prime station............
Interesting that DHN allowed SDAH AII to go ahead than HWH JU....looks like MGS/ALD will do it........
As for the rest.......
HTE PPTA would have be delayed.....as it is comparitively low priority train, Maurya would go in the opposite direction....towards RNC departing on time!
Shipra would have got higher priority than Dehradun Howrah which is a crawler.........
Still takes 7hrs for Kalka Mail/Mumbai Mail to cover MGS DHN...Grand Chord has lost the efficiency it used to had before
Interesting entry. New type.
Kalka Mail and CSTM mail have had innumerable halts between DHN-MGS....beside been subjected to numerous overtakes!
That is the prime reason for the delays they face....
And beside that the traffic on the GC has increased by leaps and bounds....the lines are the same......
Btw...they do a much better job than the HWH-PNBE mainline!
On the contrary 12311 almost always reaches MGS 30 mts b/t
Really........then there must be a huge slack provided in the train's TT.......I don't see where the Grand Chord is at fault here!

less than 4% chances of confirmation
The fare in general quota from Howrah to Panagarh in 13009 Doon express is Rs. 140 and the cancellation charge is Rs. 120 if the ticket is for a reserved berth. The refund is only Rs.20. A further increase in the cancellation charge will overtake the fare.
Government didnt simply want you to cancel your ticket :P
When the cancellation charge exceeds the fare, one will have to pay some extra money to have one's ticket cancelled benefiting the govt's coffer.
If they are taking some amount as cancelling charges. Den IR should provide the customers some amount back other than the ticket fare as compensation for not confirming the WL tickets.
before further increase in cancellation charge, IR will increase fare.
ER - Cancellation of trains in January-March 2016 due to FOG.
Not a good move . I think Railway declare HOLIDAY during fog times so that govt and employee both will be happy . Nothing matters for the pain of common man ...
No concrete steps for taking care of FOG by the railway except planned cancellation of the trains. As i have traveled during fog on rajdhani and I found that there are other reasons like gangman clearance etc under the category of administrative duties which delayed the train and all reasons are attributed due to fog and every railway official are quite happy with the FOG due to extra hours .
Correction : Not all railway official but quite a few who get the larger chank during fog days by extra pay
Good and sensible move by IR.
