Since a long demand for End to End WAP7 for Puroshottam Express, still Railways is not providing the same. Some time it is running with P4 instead of P7 and regular P4 from KGP to PURI & viceversa.
There should be a WAP7 ELS for SER as well ECoR.

My curiosity lies in what difference do you think a WAP7 would make, sir!
The differences in performance of a WAP7 & WAP4 are far too much alike to cause any significant change in a SF of Purushottam's capabilities...
For crawlers, yes , a P7 can do wonders but there would be no difference in Puru's performance as per what I think...
I should say that WAP4s are far more reliable when compared to WAP7s!

ECoR & SER would provide those locos for all Premium class trains Like (BBS Raj, Coro, Puru, PUI shatabdi HWH-YPR Duro, PUI-HWH Exp etc.) running on this section.

Why ? Train will run according to its time table and speed limits it's not like WAP 7 will make trains run like aeroplanes. Railways knows what they're doing, WAP 4 is not a steam locomotive. I don't know what's wrong with people.

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

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
