Yes agreed on both the points. Takes too much time and also the days of operation are bad. But nonetheless, this train was announced after a lot of wait and demand. So even that is a big thing...

Does the railway authorities think they are doing some favor by running this train?
Firstly the train runs on odd days. Had they been really concerned about passengers, they should have run on weekends, when the rush is maximum.
Secondly, such a long route of 40 hours journey, they could have easily managed the train commute time to 32-34 hours maximum.
Sampark kranti or
Karnataka doesn't take more than 28 hrs to reach Bhopal. From Bhopal to Indore most exp trains reaches within 4 hrs.
Why the hell they are making longer routes when shorter routes are avaialable.
Already trains have to make a full go around to connect to South India, since there is no Broad gauge direct line towards south of Indore. So why make more longer routes where shorter are possible.
Crazy 1900 kms, where as it can be achived under 1500 kms.
Lastly why name this train as Special train, where as it was been announced as a regular train in Bugdet 2012. Is it because they just want to increase numbers to show people they are running N number of trains.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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,...
