Yea, exactly
How about few Durontos between GKP and NDLS, CSTM, KOAA, and other metros?
Will that be enough?
Guess not :(
A bunch of Rajdhanis, Shatabdis and Double-Deckers to supplement them would be indispensable

How about renaming Indian Railways as Gorakhpur Railways as well?
I believe this much would be sufficient for GKP for the next 2-3 days post which more trains would be required :)
