By removing it, easily this train can arrive JAT by 1900hr
I don't understand the motive of WR to send this much useful train via pathankot jn. Unncessary extra travel plus a rake reversal. Diesel fuel wastage and patheticly slow down the train's avg speed. Just see the halt duration at pathankot jn. 1hr 20min halt for rake reversal. Is it a joke Mr. Railway board member who made this "world class" timetable? If train is not going via amritsar and is halting at pathankot cantt and bharoli jn., then there is no need to send it to pathankot jn. By removing it, easily this train can arrive JAT by 1730-1800hr.
