This train is supposed to be for the benefit of UBL-YPR passengers to go to MAS. But TT shows that it is useless as it touches the stations from Harihar to YPR at ghost hours and wastes 1/2 day. Return trip is still horrible with crawling behind daily ICE and reaching at stns between YPR-Haveri at ghost hours. Proper TT management is required. Should start from UBL by 4 Pm and reach YPR by night 1130 and reach MAS by 0630. Return should start by night 2200 and reach YPR by morning 0430 and reach UBL by 1200 noon.
UBL-MAS spll is recent proposed train and it is know that MAS is highly conjested
where as kcvl-SBC is introduced long back...by that time i guess SBC is not so crowded...
May be in present situation SWR will also do the same by keeping Less TAT with out considering timings...example is SC-Ypr GR
That is why First come first serve or political influence plays role i believe
Agreed that this is a special and MAS is totally congested. Then why SR agreed for MAS as terminal? They could have shifted to MS or VM or PDY.
What about VSG/UBL-MAS weeklies which are running for more than a decade? Why can't their TT be changed to suit travelling public? With such a pathetic TT, how do you expect patronage?
we dnt have proper info reg the proposal of VSG-MAS and UBL-MAS in the budget,may be SR has given that slot or SWR might have kept RSA in the view and proposed...bca that set of trains have complete RSA.
And i dnt see any official demand from SWR/SR to change the timings of VSG-MAS.
no reason why SR has considered only MAS and SWR has proposed to MAS only....
I think slowly railways stopped thinking abt timings and convience of public except for some prem trans...only they are running trains either they fit or not
KCVL/ERS-SBC trains can go back to SA or TPJ during day time. With just one more rake and RSA, one day time train to TPJ can be run. Say for example, SBC Dep 0830 and TPJ arrival 1545. Next day morning, this can start at TPJ by 0700 and arrive at SBC by 1430 and go back to KCVL/ ERS.
Why SR cannot do this?
i guess u know very well.....
Railway board/Railway officials/Senior officers will not think like our RF's especially in TT and route and that to SWR is exceptional case in that
If SR has any TT problems, use these trains to run a trip to Hassan and bring back to SBC in the evening. Something similar to what SR is doing for MYS-MV train which goes to TPJ and returns back. As of now, there is no daily train from Bengaluru to Hassan (I will not count Karwar/ Kannur exp as a train to Hassan).
oh.....another idea for SWR
SBC-MYS over now SBC-Hassan?
Hope KCG-SBC sf in queue if SBC-MAS ICE is scraped
SBC-MYS is full with extended trains from north KA. Here, what I am suggesting is to get first ever connectivity to Hassan from SBC, by running as a separate train with different number. Both ideas are different.
its not easy to catch the mind and idealogy of SWR...i am poor in it
There is obviously a big difference in morning arrival pattern at SBC vs MAS. Several SR trains wait at various points at MAS outer in queue for more than 20 minutes every day morning. for this reason, SR gives extra heavy slack in the TT for all MAS arrivals except may be Duronto, Raj and GR. I'm fairly sure even if there are any new SR trains coming, they will not get the morning arrival slot.
departed on time from mas blasted passt perambur.....
a sore to the eyes
the earlier one was still so standard
even santabanta.com doesnt use so many colours in a single page !!
and what a representation of coach sequence, I showed it to my 6 yr old cousin...even he found it hilarious !!
Looks like old Nokia mobiles Snake Game. :-P
a larger sore is the font that you use for your mobile...
i'm confused if this is information site or sun funny drawing site. some fonts are too big. then this funny kiddish design. why things can't remain simple and sober.
whts the prb in this
y u all alwys criticize the work of mod sir
why not? when we can praise moderator's work then why not criticize if something we don't like?
Nd i praise
Very worst train timings from Chennai to YPR. Its starts at 13.50 and reach YPR 9.30. Also after JTJ (Patchur) they halt for overtaking. Sundays 3 Trains are overtakes 1. Sanghamitra (12296) 2. Pataliputra YPR exp (22351) 3. TPTY SBC Intercity (22618)...... People are Chennai and Katpadi don’t take this train. Instead of take the above trains.....
Anything between MAS and SBC, esp. on a Sunday, runs full. It is, in fact, a good one that connects the hinterlands of KA and MAS and shares the slot of 17311. If the logic of no train should OT another, IR cannot function maan.
Can I board the train from ypr if I book tatkal ticket for kjm-ubl on this train
anyone with their views on this ?
As per rules NO, but in practice YES
As per rules NO, but in practice YES
It shouldn't be much of issue supposedly,but if you yet are to book ticket select BP as YPR to be on safer side...
For tatkal there won't be separate quota I guess if you book from KJM...
There ia separate quota..dats y because I am unable to do tatkal ypr to ubl for this train ..it shows ckwl for all days
i checked the reservation for this train from YPR to ubl for 26th OCT.Tatkal quote shows ckwl. but however if i check from KJM-UBL it shows tatkal quota available 130.
Why is this it shows available if i book from KJM and not from YPR ?
Tatkal booking not allowed for that stretch..You can book from KJM.
Thanks.ok very strange.Probably they consider KJM as the starting Point of booking for this train for reservation upto UBL.
But earlier i used to book from YPR-UBL only
May be they would have changed..Usually these kind of booking restrictions can be seen in some trains...
