Is MughalSarai-Allahabad congestion actually that huge it delays trains 15-20 mins to 5-6 hours.
there is only 1 passenger in whole day
there is number of trains on it agreed, but it is equivalent to trains on Patna - Mgs route or Kanpur - Delhi.
As of freight concerned Dhanbad route has way more with every small station serving as a mini junction to a nearby coalfield.
So what u ppl think that actually delays a train like say 12816, 12506,12312,12488 to take 5-7 hours daily to traverse this path.

The tracks are not used much efficiently in India.there should be facilities like automatic signalling,faster movements of trains to use tracks efficiently..

i think what railways says is true,there is lot of traffic on ald-mgs route. on this site itself it shows 100 trains between on this route,atleast 50 more trains are not shown due to trains skipping ald {like raj,durunto, etc}. there are goods train also that need to be passed. according to railway officials this patch is operating at 250% of its capacity
according to my estimate{i might be wrong} atleast 400 trains{up-down trains including goods trains} are running daily between ald and mgs. this patch seriously needs atleast 4 track combination to run traffic smoothly

15 (30 if considered up and down) pairs of train skip ALD , out of which 3 daily Sealdah Raj, Vikramshila, Sampoornkranti.
Rest all run in pairs like BBS raj (22811 & 22823) 7 days, Rnc and BBS samarkranti (12825 & 12819) 4 days , HWH & BBS Duronto (12273 & 12281) 3 days.
All the rest are biweekly (except 12259 which is 4 days).

yeah whatever, but traffic is still huge considering all the goods trains.
railways dont want to run trains late,but with traffic build up too 250%,some train sadly gets to suffer daily due to traffic congestion.

BLAZING BAZOOKA : 25 Coaches Long SuperFast Train Of Indian Railways : Legendary KALKA MAIL : WAP-7
Indian Railways : Seen in video is 25 coaches long 12312/Kalka Mail hauled by Howrah [HWH] WAP-7 #30322 destorying Dankaur station of North Central Railways [NCR]. Kalka Mail is the name of a train in India connecting Howrah near Kolkata in the Eastern Indian state of West Bengal to Kalka, Haryana, the railhead for Kalka-Shimla Railway. Thus connects it to Shimla, the hill station capital of Himachal Pradesh and one-time summer capital of India.
Kalka Mail at present is among the longest trains running in the country, it has a total of 25 coaches (12 Sleeper, 2 SLR, 4 General, 1 First A/C, 2 3Tier A/C, 3 2Tier A/C) and has total 4 rakes. One

A/C 3 tier coach gets attached in Mugalsarai to the train from train and its detached at Mugalsarai on the return journey. It is the longest train in the I.R. This train is categorised as super-fast and runs at a maximum speed of 110 km/hrs. The engine attached to this train is the modern 6350 HP, WAP-7 based in Ghaziabad. In between Howrah and Kalka the train stops at 37 Stations. Passengers boarding the train have to abide by distance restriction: the minimum travel distance is 160 km in all AC classes and 480 km in Sleeper and 2S. Kalka Mail is the primary & most important Mail Train running in the Eastern Corridor of the country.The train has operational RMS sections b/w Chandigarh Delhi,Delhi Allahabad,Allahabad Gaya(Sr Supdt RMS 'A' Div)& Gaya Howrah(Sr Supdt RMS 'C' Div) & half of a GS coach is alloted for the RMS operations.
Run by the East Indian Railway Company, the train (originally numbered 1 Up / 2 Dn) began operation between Calcutta and Delhi in 1866 as the "East Indian Railway Mail". It's run was extended from Delhi to Kalka in 1891. The train was the principal mechanism by which British civil servants moved to their summer capital in Simla from Calcutta with the entire government machinery traveling on the train at the start of the summer months and returning by it at the end of summer. Both stations, Howrah as well as Kalka, had internal carriageways running along the platform so that the Viceroy and other high-ranking officers could drive right up to their rail coaches. The carriageway at Howrah is still used and runs between Platforms 8 and 9 but the carriageway at Kalka has been converted into platform. With the rationalization of train numbering in the 1990s, the Kalka Mail lost its 1 Up /2 Dn numbering and is now the 12311 from Howrah and the 12312 from Kalka. he train leaves Howrah at 19:40 hrs and arrives at Kalka after two nights at 04:30 hrs. It leaves Kalka at 23:55 hrs and arrives at Howrah after two nights at 07:55 hrs. The journey takes 32 hrs 50 mins for the Howrah-Kalka journey but takes 32 hrs for the Kalka-Howrah journey.
12312/Kalka Mail travels 1713 km in 32h 0m with 38 halts at an average speed of 53 km/hr and belongs to Eastern Railways [ER].
