My upcoming trip is in 12322 Kolkata Mail (Imperial Mail) on 13th December 2016 & I'm very much worried, I'm surely anticipating re-scheduling of it's departure from Mumbai itself, what's your say?

If your 12322 Imperial Mail is Rescheduled by 8-10 hrs, you can cancel your ticket and go via Nagpur in 12809 Mumbai Mail.

This train is a better opinion as a SF to Travel, As Poorva Exp Runs very Late and Rest of the trains are Expensive (Duronto/Rajdhani). If you Look at it's Late Margin even in Fog season, You will come to know that Kalka mail is 100 times more punctual than Poorva Express. It Performs Awesome on Such a Busy Route! Avg Delay is of 2hrs 15mins at HWH! However, It often reaches HWH on time or Slightly Before Time.

I aboslutely second that!! This train comes as a much favourite option just after Raj/Dur. I also have an honest confession to make......such a legend, still running on ICF coaches, till date. Why are they not upgrading this beauty to the more fast and modern LHB rakes?? Beats me!!

You must be familiar with it's Slip at CDG, ICFs are self power generating, detachment of coach is possible without having a Power cease, whereas in LHB a EOG or HOG is required to keep supplying Power. So, Attaching/Removing slip while Keeping Continuous power supply in Coaches is a impossible task. Moreover, Kalka mial requires atleast 4 Rakes of LHB

The "D1" coach is nothing but an SLR coach with hoards of unreserved passengers. Be wary of the same before you book a seat in it.
