Can two more 2A coaches be added to this train ? A WAP4/5/7 can haul upto 25 coaches. So there is ample space to add some more coaches. 2A tickets are always in demand and in Waitlist.Elderly passengers feel comfortable travelling in 2A coaches .The fare is also not much higher than 3A but nearly half of that of 1A.

a wap-7 can haul upto 30 coaches easily...if loco was the only issue then many trains could be made 24-30 a station like hwh,if you're getting a 24 coach train,then you're lucky...many of the important trains having 13-18 coaches only.

What is the issue then ? In a station like Howrah ,Platforms 8-14 and 17-23 can accomodate trains with more than 25 coaches easily.Again we already have 3 AC-3 tier coaches and 8 Sleeper coaches. where as there is only one 2A coach. Nor sure why my fellow blogger mentioned that 2 SL and 1 AC-3 tier coach demand is more and needed before 2A.

One of the oldest running trains in Indian railways...previously named as Indian Imperial Mail. Most probably started running in the 1860s. Can somebody post its inaugural run ?

Instead of having 13 sleeper coaches, its preferable to have 12 sleeper coaches and the S13 replaced with one HA1 or one A2 coach. 2A tickets are of high demand in this train especially for senior passengers and getting a ticket in the single A1 coach is like getting a lottery.

getting 2a tkts in any train is like lottery...most of the train have only 6-8 brths available for public booking in a result,you may see that 2a berths are available in current booking but that is of no use to public

    -@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,...
