Got this old timetable from a whatsapp chat today. This shows the timetable of trains of Kolkata Delhi sector in the old days (may be 1950s or 1960s)
But i have some question regarding this timetable. Anyone please give the reply to these questions
1 What is the current version of 67 delhi sealdah exp???
2 Here halt of Poorva exp, ac deluxe biweeky,
is shown at Asn, Gaya. Mgs, mzp, ald, cnb and tdl. Didnt it used to halt at Bwn, dgr, dhn, aljn at that time???
3 Earlier Kashi exp used to run from MGS???
4 What is the 65 howrah delhi exp???
5 Here 12301/04 poorva exp via Patna is not mentioned. Was it not running at that time???

Another interesting fact is that poorva via Gaya used to tun via Mzp earlier. If anyone knows then they can put some light on when this train was diverted via BSB and whether 101/102 poorva exp via Patna also had a halt at Mzp or not

These are scans from the 1957 NER timetable. I do not have exact answers for some of your questions, but to the best of my knowledge:
65/67 express trains - One of these two trains was later renumbered as 11/12, more famously known as the Lalquila express, which was discontinued recently.
Halts for the Deluxe (Poorva) - This is just an abstract timetable, not the full one. As I mentioned earlier, this was the NER timetable. So, for the lines from other zones, only the timings at some major stations are shown.
I believe the Air-conditioned express did stop at other stations, but they are not shown here.
Introduction of Poorva via Patna - The first Air-conditioned express between Howrah and Delhi was introduced as a bi-weekly via Gaya,Mirzapur on Ocotber 2nd, 1956 numbered 81/82, and is the present day 12381/82 Poorva via Gaya.
The Air-conditioned express via Patna started operations as a weekly train numbered 103/104 from April 1st, 1967 and was converted to a bi-weekly from August 1st, 1971. This is the present day 12303/04.

The Air-conditioned express via Gaya was diverted via Varanasi sometime before 1971.
