I notice that for 11013/1104 the lower berth quota for AC 2 tier has been reduced from 4 to 3. The Budget proposal was to increase it by 50%. Can anybody clarify the reason

The live update information given in Railways website is not accurate. Today I went see off my relative at Coimbatore by 12677. The train arrived at Coimbatore Junction at 1323 and left at 1333, but the railway site gives as 1310 and 1323 respectively. We can accept a couple of minutes mistake but 10 minutes is a pretty big error with the present technology. We have to be careful with this information

With the doubling and electrification complete upto GTL, it is high time the trains in this stretch are speeded up and the running time reduced.

But IR is not thinking about that

This train arrived at 0330 hrs today at MAS (~1 hr early). I was trying to track it from 0200 hrs onwards but IR didn't allow tracking beyond AJJ. If the train has so much slack, why not permanently alter its timing..

Both 11027 and 11028 have very high slack. But speeding up will result in either reaching unearthly hours or starting very late. All the Trains in MAS-CSTM sector can be speeded up considerably. These Metro city connections for Railways is the worst in the Country. Having travelled in this Sector for 45 years regularly I know the progress made is worse than "snail's pace"

Many will say being single n unelectrified trains cannot be speeded up ..Hyderabad - Pune sector also same route na frm wadi..den how come shatabdi n duronto is MAS Wadi is double route n following same route trains coming frm hyd..seems der is prblm with MAS /SBC - CSTM sector single routes also there are trains running with aggressive avg speed..

Nowadays flight tickets are available for Rs 999 and there are so many flights between MAA-BOM so why would they bother to improve rail connectivity..also Volvo sleeper bus takes only 20 hrs from Chennai to Mumbai..

    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.
