This train runs like this between Barbil and Tata. On average the train is 30% full for 2S and less than 10% full for CC between Tata and BBN. All reserved trains run like this in this route from cbsa to Dps to Ctc. But fact is that in this area there is poor road connectivity and very few number of trains. So the small number of people having to travel daily require the trains. Here all trains run on public profit basis and not on profit basis. Before these trains were introduced, people used to load all their luggage in goods train and travelled by it. SER allowed the travellers to travel by goods trains in wide day light as there was no means of public transport. Once I with my parents got late for Tata Gua passenger. Then we travelled in the Electric Engine of a goods train from...
CBSA to DPS as the next train, Tata BBN passenger was after 8 Hrs. So, closure of these trains may save railways some money but create great difficulty for public. This may lead to public agitation.

    @all: There are some changes coming to the PNR Forum. 1. All PNRs will be anonymized, i.e. you won't see who posted the PNRs or search PNRs by Traveller. This is to better protect the confidentiality of travelling members and their travel plans. However, members will still be able to search their OWN...

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