Since 12658 obviously gets very less time i.e 9 hrs for maintenance due to RSA with Karnataka SF and is rescheduled very frequently whenever 12628 is delayed, PM can be done for 12657 which arrives at Bengaluru. Then, there would be 14 hrs of PM and rescheduling wouldn't be an issue. 12658 can depart with Secondary Maintenance. If SWR follows this, it wouldn't incur losses from Cancellations whenever 12658 is rescheduled to depart at 05:00 AM in the morning.

Well, 1 spare rake or RSA with Sanghamitra would result in the same number of total rakes. It may be better to have the rakes tied up in a constant usage. A spare rake will eventually be used to run specials or even cannibalized for other trains. But if the additional rake is from another daily train, then there will be an assurance that the rake will always be available.
Also, the KK+Mail RSA is only to maintain KK's schedule. KK needs 4 rakes to be run as a daily train. Since the return KK has less than 6 hours of TAT at SBC, even a minor delay for 12628 will delay 12627. So they have an RSA
with mail, just to ensure that 12627 runs on time. There are no rake savings per se. Both trains together are using 4+2 rakes which is the same as what is required had there been no RSA.

Dedicated mail rake is 18 hrs maintainance on both sides. I would never ask for that. A rake only needs 8 hrs
max. maintainance. What would a rake do with so much maintainance??

If 12658 is de linked then karnataka gets only 6h maintainance. They can adjust RSA with any SWR train which departs late from SBC with same composition. Can you think of any such trains??
