This is regarding query on tatkal ticket. I booked a tatkal ticket and the status was WL23. After a few hours the status changed to 7 and finally it got confirmed. The rules says that confirmed tatkal tickets are not admissible for refund. So how did my improve from WL23 to WL7?

Attached herewith the snapshot of the ticket. Please note that the ticket was confirmed about ten hours before charting.
This is a mystery.
Even if people with confirmed tatkal cancel their tickets also, whether these many people will cancel? It is a mystery. Members can just share their feelings.

This is regarding query on break journey
I have a confirmed ticket in Train No. 16315 in 2-AC coach from SBC to KYJ (725 km). The train starts from SBC on December 1 at 17.00 hrs to reach KYJ at 07.00 hrs on December 2.
There is an intermediate station ERS, which the train will reach at 05.00 hrs on December 2. I wish to get down at ERS and board another daily train 16303 (starting at 05.30 hrs on December 2 from ERS) to reach a station called TRVL at 06.30
hrs on December 2.
Do I have to purchase additional ticket from ERS on December 2 (up to TRVL) in order to travel in Train No. 16303 or can I use the same ticket which I purchased for Train No. 16315?
1. 16303 also goes to KYJ but I am getting down at TRVL which is well before KYJ.
2. Distance between SBC and ERS is 625 km.
3. Distance between ERS and TRVL is 86 km.
4. Ticket is purchased for 725 km while I want to travel only 622+86=711 km.
Can I perform this break journey? Please suggest.

Once you de-board from the train on which you have reserved a ticket, the ticket is not valid on any other train as the reservation is valid only on that particular train. So in this case you need to buy a seperate ticket for the section you are travelling

If a train departs at 13.00 hrs from a station, how long back can I book reserved ticket from the reservation counter. I came across a news saying that we can book tickets prior to 30 minutes from departure. Is it applicable for counter booked tickets?

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

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@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,...
