Good to see the board. I do have a query. It would have been good if languages of the originating station state and destination state was also mentioned (in this case bengali and tamil) .
But i think Indian railways uses the rule that whichever railway zone is managing the train then the language of tht particualr state is only mentioned.

That's a good suggestion. There is no rule set as such. It's the zone that takes the call. Most of the times it is English,Hindi and the language of the state to which the train belongs, as you mentioned. But there are some examples which has both the languages of Source station and Destination Station. Best examples are : Bangalore - Chennai Shatabdi, Double Decker, Chennai - Mysore Shatabdi, Udyan Exp and many more. There are other instance where even passing by state's language is also used. Ex Yesvantpur - Mangalore Exp which has board in Kannada, Hindi, English, Tamil and Malayalam. There is one more example which has Source and intermediate state but not Destination state. Ex: Chennai - Mangalore Exp which has board in Hindi, English, Tamil and Malayalam. So there is no hard and fast rule, all depends on the Zone which own the train....

I am planning to book a ticket from RJY to MS on 23/02 for 17644 Circar Express. I want to keep 12839 Howrah mail as back up. But I am worried about the chart preparation of these two trains. I am booking a 3A ticket. Looks like both will have chart prepared at similar time. Can anyone suggest which chart gets prepared first and how much clearance do I have to cancel the other ticket?

You are right. But Circar has only 2 3A coaches...My waitlist now is 5. I have seen that Howrah mail gives easy confirmation if there are quite a few tickets booked from HWH-RJY. Thats why I wanted to keep it as a backup

As there were no time clashes due to non-availability of trains, these Mail trains ran at the most convenient timings which ensured the British officers get good night sleep, that's why the Mail trains run at the excellent time slots even now
Mail trains were started by the British. In those times these Mail trains were the only trains that connected the important cities by using the trunk routes. As there were no time clashes due to non-availability of trains, these Mail trains ran at the most convenient timings which ensured the British officers get good night sleep, that's why the Mail trains run at the excellent time slots even now.
