To increase the operational efficiency of passenger rakes and utilise the ‘lie-over’ periods of trains, the Indian Railways will be extending the routes of more than 50 trains which will be reflected in new public time table due next month. In addition, given that the lack of maintenance blocks has caused accidents in the recent past, the new time table has been designed in order to provide each railway division 2-4 hours of blocks for maintenance. There are two types of lie-overs in railways — first, a train reaches its terminal railway station and undergoes maintenance before returning to its originating station, and second, wherein it does not undergo maintenance but waits for its slot to return to the originating station. “Maintenance takes around 4-6 hours. However, there is a thought that the maintenance time should be reduced and rakes should be used more,” said a ministry of railway official requesting...
anonymity. In few instances wherein trains stand at stations for few hours, “We are extending the route of these trains for say 2-3 hours and while coming back it will connect to the original route,” added the official.
These changes will reflect in the new time table that is due to come out in November. So, if there is train which is to wait for 8 hours at a station before returning back, the railways will take the same rake onwards for a distance of, say, three hours and will be back at the same station before its scheduled departure. “It will give us new services,” said the official. The new time table will also see running time of 51 mail and express trains being reduced by 1-3 hours. “The speeds of these trains have not been increased but various times — such as at halts, crossings, yards, among others, wherever deemed excess — have been cut,” said the official.
Maintenance corridors will also be created due to the new time table and anything between two-four hours of blocks are being created in all divisions. Railway minister Piyush Goyal has accorded safety the highest priority given multiple accidents that have rocked the transporter in the recent past. The Utkal Express derailment in Khatauli in Uttar Pradesh took place as no maintenance block was provided despite request, as reported by FE. To create blocks, the working time table will have operational details of all trains and for each division. This time table is different from the one used by commuters. It contains information on gradient, running time, locomotive hauling capacity, margin for driver to make up and speed restrictions, etc, to assist operators.

रेलमंत्री जी ने उदयपुर मैसूर ट्रेन चलाने की घोषणा की है वाया रतलाम
अजमेर रामेश्वरम न्यू ट्रेन की भी घोषणा हुई है लेकिन रूट क्लियर नहीं है
मैंने जो ट्रेन को एक्सटेंड करने की मांग की है उन से अधिकांश रेलमंडल के DRM सहमत है
जैसे अजमेर हैदराबाद एक्स को बंगलौर तक विस्तार दिया जा सकता है
मंडल और सिकंदराबाद मंडल बंगलौर मंडल इस के लिए सहमत है
देखते है आगे क्या होता है ।

The booking status reached RAC 5 for 20 Oct, from PA/DD/KPG To CD/BPQ , on the first day of booking itself..
This is sufficient to know the demand for a dedicated SF between Pune and CD-BPQ Route.!!!
