Hello Guys,
I have observed in some of the trains especially to East Central and Eastern round the year, that the seats got filled up in just 2 - 3 mins, in ARP of 2 months after the booking opens at 8:00 AM. what could be the exact reason may be the touts ?. Getting tickets is a matter of lottery in those trains.

Its is one of my favorite train to CDG but this train didn't do that well as expected. Although train get filled on last moment with current reservation. I have travelled alot in this train initially when this train started somewhere 6-7 years back. Well maintained with cordial catering staff. Earlier it depart from CDG at 10:30 AM with out any RSA.
Lots of changes happen with this train: TIMING CHANGE, RSA, FARE CHARGES. Still it require good patronage bw NDLS to CDG/UNA. Definately not want to see this train in so called WHITE ELEPHANT category train.

I have gone through multiple Shatabdi, but the speed of Kalka shtbd. is max about 110 kph (display board) instead of 130. while most of shtbd. reaches upto 130 except Bhopal shtbd(150 - 160).
I wish if it could geared upto 130 kph there would be a net saving of more than half an hour on total journey.

I think the tracks also have a vital role to play along with coaches for speed.. In my opinion the tracks in the route aren't conducive for 130 KMPH so the MPS has been given as 110 KMPH..

You may be right, as the track's infrastructure play a vital role in transit.
