Why isn't the Darjeeling Mail a premium train?

Let it be as it is. Lot of debates already as exact origin of 'present DM' is "disputed".

I think they extended DM to HDB to free up parking space from NJP. During the pre-covid days, I frequently saw the Darjeeling Mail rake being taken towards SGUT/SGUJ from NJP after the termination of its journey.

I hope NJP retains its General quota as HDB, JPG, and, NJP are in the KIR division, and then it will be a win-win for all.

Pre-partition, DM used to run till Siliguri Town, and connection to the DHR was available from SGUT only. The present NJP station came up in 1960, a station on the Assam Link Project (the new faster line between Kishanganj and Fakiragram). The present Siliguri Jn, earlier an MG station also came up post-partition in 1949. The original northern terminal of Darjeeling Mail, Siliguri Town came up in 1880.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
