I notice many seats empty in most trains yet comes under tatkal. Also I see people buying current ticket and converting it to reserved for AC classes 2A especially. Is Railways cheating the public just like gov't is cheating with GST (220 Rs tax on a 1000 food bill yesterday)?

Why does 16382 have tremendous slack between Yadgir and Wadi? I notice most trains have slack in that sector.
Also, 12164 a so-called "superfast" train has a stop at Saidapur, when most trains don't (some passengers also don't stop there), any reason for is not such an important halt. That train started its initial run with around 11 halts which has now become 22.

Photo appears to be taken in early 70's. These WCM1/2 DC English Electric loco used to haul 9/10 BB-MAS Mail between BB-PUNE almost till 1996. Repainted to cream-violet in mid 70's. A beauty in its class. Long live IR!!!!

A daily occurrence at MFP.. Look how punctuality of trains is at its lowest specially in Northern and Eastern india..Its .neither fog season nor any kind of mishap took place..still some trains are running even 14 hours late...Suresh prabhu undoubtedly is the worst railway minister as far as operation of trains is concerned..

For certain things we can blame Suresh Prabhu but for certain things we cannot. The accident rate was very high until a month back also. That could be a reason to be overcautious and slow down the majority of trains. Less than 33% of all trains run on time, and these are mainly short distance or inter city hauls.
One thing we cannot blame Suresh Prabhu for...the sad state of Tejas Express. Stolen headphones, garbage everywhere, choked toilets, broken LCD screens, glass also broken by stone throwers, beer bottles strewn everywhere..
are many who say North India is worst, but look at NDLS- Bhopal Shatabdi and Gatiman express..people take pride in keeping those trains spic n span..And look at Delhi Metro too..
India will always be a third world backwater until people change their attitude towards public facilities and keep their spaces clean and neat. Which won't happen in the near or even distant future..

bhai suresh prabhu ko "worst" kahna puri tareeke se galat hai... kisi chij me sudhar karna kahne jitna aasan nahi hai.... ye koi aisa kaam to hai nhi ki jadui chhadi ghuma di aur ho gaya....logo ko ye samjhna padega.... haa kuchh zone hai jo dhang se control nahi kar pate .... unhe sudharne ki jarurat hai....lakin iske kiye worst kahna galat hai.... thoda janata bhi dekhe vo kya karti hai.... example Tejas Express....

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

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
