Looks like NWR is not concerned for its premier train 12988. Today 12987 reached AII at 6:17AM, so easily it culd have departed AII at 2:20PM(1.5 hours delay with 8 hours PM at AII), yet it was rescheduled to depart at 4:05 PM. (3 hours 15 minutes late).
NWR must very well be knowing that if it departed late, next day 12987 will be rescheduled and the chain will continue and then soon 1 rake will be cancelled.
Very poor decision.
tweet so many times, to utilise rake of Marusagar Express on Wed and Thu, but that is also not concerned.
These railways officials will never understand common man's suffering. They will just utilize their pass or HO quota for emergency travelling, but will never know how it feels like common man booking the ticket 4 months in advance and then their train getting cancelled at the last moment just because of these nonsense management system.

The damage of one it's rake in accident has cost this train of punctuality.
New rake is due in April,but expect heavy delays till then.
One of the best train, extremely sorry for it's condition.

In Feb it got 4th rake, don't know where it went again.
And even though, if 4th rake isn't present, NWR should try their best to give priority to its zone train in which NWR fails. Max time it gets delay from JP to BTE and ALS in return, it couldn't utilize enough slack from BTE to JP.

My prediction was right. Due to stupidity of NWR that day, 1 rake of 12988 is heavily delayed. Don't know how will they manage this without cancelling it.
