Agree:with your thoughts. Agree Agree Agree
Whilst the CNB-ALD section runs at/beyond capacity and the trend is similar for CNB-ON-LKO section; we have tracks running from Unnao-Sitapur which are woefully underutilized and see only a single pair of passenger train per day. Same is for the ON-RBL tracks which too has too little trains. IR ought to upgrade these sections both to benefit passengers on this route and exploring alternate routes.

It'll help connect CNB with STP more efficiently. Also, I find it ironical that Kanpur-Allahabad has an alternate route sitting right next to the main route that
is only ~14 km long. If that route is doubled and speeds upgraded, trains can easily find a way from CNB to ALD without choking on the main line.

Agree:💯💯 Totally
Many cities still have their old legacy still with them. If I am correct, it is still called "Bombay High Court" despite the name change done even earlier.

In Railways context, sometimes they change the name of the city but not the station code. I think Chennai still uses "MS" and "MAS" from it's Madras days. The oldest example I can think of is Kanpur having the station code "CNB", from when it was called "Cawnpore", which was really a long time ago.

Prayag as an alternative name for Allahabad is also old, I think. The Prayag station on LKO-PRYJ line is quite old and so was "Prayag Ghat" before it was renamed to "Prayagraj Sangam".

True. LKO NR is congested. During peak times, one can see trains regularly stranded on it's outers.IR is actually building a bypass line for trains coming from Sultanpur/Pratapgarh [they merge at a small station just before LKO] so that if they are going towards BE/MB, they can bypass LKO. There is a freight only station that has gotten 2 platforms now called "Transport Nagar" in Lucknow area. Currently, no such bypass trains run but some weeklies using the said route can/should be definitely diverted.

Yes totally agreed on all points the legacy has it and if these powerful legislatives wanted to change they would have done it long ago. One can still use the names.

Not just this blog but there were plenty of previous cases that we all saw the discussions on the nomenclatures still it goes on due to such seasonal sparks. 😂

Sir why I proposed that route is , Tirupati ko seedha Varanasi, Ayodhya ke liye connection milenge. Tirupati is lacking direct train to these both places for many days. Although SCR proposed TPTY BSBS , however other zones rejected it citing path constraints, and it will help passengers go to Naimisharanya too. Many Indians of South visit the above mentioned places sir

    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...
