they deserve 12 coaches. no express trains for them. and alarming rush all day long in canning/diamond harbour/namkhana/lakshmikantapur locals...i always feel that gangasagar express could be extended to namkhana. it has somewhat siding for extra rake. space for extension of station/lines. timings of ganga sagar at sealdah gives it enough buffer to return from namkhana. this will also give south sealdah section their only m/e. the only hinderance~huge emu traffic in that section...

no harm in doing that as intermediate stations will not act as stoppages for gangasagar. NMKA has longer platforms and if anyway short it can be extended as lot of space is there. moreover in NMKA there are lot of space for building reversal facilites, water filling, RRI etc.

    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...
