Yes, Prabir, this sort of mismanagement is quite characteristic of Howrah Station. Imagine the plight of a passenger who wants to board the Falaknuma Express departing from the New Complex at 7.25 am. Despite Saraighat being on time, he will have to miss the ongoing train.

In this context I would like to mention that 12345/12346 Saraighat Exp is one of the most important trains of Eastern Rly,which gets the priviledge of departure from PF#9(along with trains like 12301,12311,12303,12381,12307 etc),which is very close to the Bay for entry & exit of vehicles

If I was the passenger I would get down from the train & move on to new complex platform,after crossing the yard.The train was standing very near to the station.

Good move if you are a lone passenger with limited luggage. But if one is travelling with the family and/or luggage/aged persons, then it is a difficult proposition, Prabir.

This problem is not only with Howrah, its seen in almost all stations down in south too. Before 9am, MV-MYS express will reach Mysore and it will be made to halt outside for almost 15-20 minutes and reaches Mysore station by 9:20am. This is almost daily affair there:(
Most of the trains reaching Bangalore Cantonment will not depart immediately and again will be made to wait outside Bangalore city station (for this reason people always miss connecting trains).

    -@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,...
