I would myself predict this as confirmed since even a couple of passengers from earlier station currently booked till Shegaon/Malkapur will help confirm berths for these passengers on the vacant part of the berths beyond Shegaon/Malkapur, which cannot be given to WL tickets of Nagpur/Badnera/Akola, even if their WL number is lower.
Well I believe I'm misunderstood here. I posted my doubt to get it cleared. What I'm saying is that Name of the Engine is Azad and the Engine no us WP/P7200. This engine still exist and is in Rewari Steam Engine Centre. Secondly I agree initially Train name use be written on the steam engines ( Like Punjab Mail etc ) but in this case you can see its only Azad is written , no mention of word like Express . Also as much as my understanding goes, this engine use to belong to Northern railways. In fact you can read more about this engine in irctctourism.com/Trains/Fairyqueen/FQ001.html . I hope im not violating any copyright by pasting tis url :) :)
I'm writing this post because i believe in this forum we should always try to give the correct and authentic information. In past some days im observing that many of our fellow IR Fans are posting pictures which are factually wrong or has been taken from other sources without any permission. It made me think is that some people are doing that so that they can have more great , agree, useful vote. What surprises me is that even if some one raises objection saying that Pix or post is wrong no action is being taken as people are happy with their zone, likes or number of great which they have got. As more great and useful vote may help them to become Admin/Moderator/ RF in future. Let me give you an example, in this post i have mentioned that this picture is wrong.

Azad Hind Express. But till now no action taken. I did some research at that time and gave the proof for that again no action. I again did more research and found that this picture was taken by one British Photographer in late 70s . In that picture that photographer has mentioned it as Some passenger train in Old Delhi station, and as we all know Azad Hind Express don't go to Delhi at all, so this picture is wrong. Now my two questions to #admins and #moderator 1) Do we have any mechanism in place to ensure that post/picture/video is authentic 2) Why we don't encourage fellow rail fans to post pictures/videos for only those for whom they have some sort of approval/permission from the owner of those pix and videos. reason being if we don't do that tomorrow the owner of those pix may take legal actions as now a days people are vey much particular for that. I hope my this post will be taken in good spirit as my intentions are not to hurt any one or blame.
It makes me sad when i see that no one posted their views. Not even #moderator nor #admins. However Im happy that at least i did my part in informing the fellow members and raised my concern. I hope in future some one will take note of this and will ensure that this forum doesn't land in some copyright suite. Thanks
Loco Name is "AZAD". Steam Loco. The Train is NOT Azad Hind Express. Azad Hind Express NEVER got the privilege of running with a Steam Loco. It was started in Late 1990's , near about 2000. At this time , Diesel and Electric Locos were normal near Pune.
Thanks Suraj, True, that's what I'm saying and in fact in my previous post i have mentioned that. Also the original source of the pix is not www.oldindiaphotos.com. This picture is taken from the collection of Professional British Photographer ( Photographs which he has taken while on India visit)which he has posted in Flicker.
