End-to-End berth may remain empty for many trains, whch isnt unusual as for so long distance journey, Quota defined always is much thn regular lean period demand & people find flight as cheaper & faster option (as compared to such long distance journey)!!
If u chck end-to-end, u gonna find Karnataka, Tamilnadu, SBC Raj, MAS Raj ....... so long list whch will give vacant berth!!

Except for heavy festival rush, u always will find this same kinda scenario for all these long distance trains!!
For Diwali return, once i booked CNF berth frm GCT-LTT in Pawan Exp (boarding @ ALD)..if i did booking from GCT, tht already means it was late trial for booking along with no vacancy frm ALD/LKO/MGS/BSB etc!!
Farakka @ RJPB-DLI isnt a tough game..too near any festival!!
off-season line doesnt make mch sense for end-to-end or GEN Quota stations!!

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
