Ratnachal superfast horribly trolled by the mindless controllers of SCR BZA division..Yet to reach RJY.
Overtaken by 12867,18463,22642,12839,12861
Poor passengers getting this kind of priority after paying SF charges.. Don't know when BZA division stops this type of controlling.
Sad thing is 12717 is the fastest train among all these trains.

controllers work to maintain trains schedules. They can go over OT as per rules. But from past few years its changing drastically.

go meet some LI/CLI, and ask him about overspeeding, his answer will match the same thing you are dismissing as 'theory'.
you can go till booked speed, you can go to MPS and at times you'll even have LI/CLI accompanying LP's in order to help him minimise journey time to reduce delay, but all of it is done without overspeeding.

I said with my exp of GPS and with Stop watch. No need to take other opinion as have proof and another blogger said the same in same post it self.
Calibration of Speedo meter of LOCO may have issues. If thats wrong NTES should dismiss these kind of updates right ? We have a clear snap shots of officials NTES updates of two trains.

I have experienced Ratnachal brutal run in 2014 it blasted DVD-BZA in 4hrs 40mins that was an extreme rampage by 12717 even with halts(no halt at anaparthi)
Still it is the fastest run I have seen/experienced for any train in BZA-DVD-BZA section.
