It is truly appalling to see a potential cracker of a train being the target of inter-zonal politics. Is WCR/NCR mistreating this train simply because it doesn't belong to them? Gone are those days when trains used to be the pride of the nation as a whole and used to be treated well in their entire section. I initially thought this dirty mind-set only belongs to the section controllers but am sad to see it trickling down to even the regular folks ... as is evident by a recent post. I just cannot understand why someone would actually be delighted that 'his' WCR is manhandling this train. In all this mayhem, the people who suffer quietly are the commuters on this train. So, what's new?!

Mr. Vijay
what inter-zonal politics are u talking ? I belong to WCR and want to know directly from u what made u think that section controllers are deliberately making this train late ? do u have any concrete proof to support ur point or ur just reading posts from members of CR cursing WCR who themselves dont have any proof .There are many factors a train can become late .This train is not high priority train but just an ordinary train .There are other high priority trains that come to WCR to whom preference is given . If u really think that WCR does it deliberately , so can u give ur thoughts about other CR trains ( more than
10 i guess ) that come in WCR.They never become late by how can u come to this conclusion that WCR is involved in politics.
are u also saying that trains running only in WCR get late ?
suppose a train gets late in CR , would u call that also politics ???

The sequence from NZM: Goa-->Gondwana-->BDTS Garib-->NZM-LTT AC-->MAS Raj
While the slot as provided should lead sequence @ AGC as: NZM-LTT AC Exp-->MAS Raj-->Goa-->Gondwana
This gets paralyzed as NZM-LTT AC will have to overtake BDTS Garib Rath before MTJ, which coz of tight scheduling, its not been allowed (while Garib Rath is WR not NR/NCR/WCR). While MAS Raj & Garib Rath do have 20 Mins difference, both weren't got disturbed but NZM-LTT AC gets close with 10 Mins diff with both & stuffed in between!! While Garib Rath dont OT Goa (but Gondwana) &
MAS Raj dont overtake Goa till AGC!!
This all would get MAS Raj schedule disturbed, if it has to trail so closely behind LTT AC SF!! So while Garib Rath overtakes Gondwana, somewhere MAS Raj overtakes LTT AC SF, making its schedule OT of GOA & Gondwana delayed & getting late!!
This intense tension arise on Friday even with SC DRNTO stuffed in between BDTS Garib Rath & MAS-Raj & maybe SC DRNTO would be getting overtaken (under same situation)!!
PS: But who do any such study but keep on banging zone vs controller!!

Calm down, dude! You don't work for WCR and I don't either! Actually, NCR is more at fault here, since the train is facing more delays in their section.

It running not that bad just max 1 and half hours late.. but as expected.. it doesnt have Rajdhani tag so its delayed purposely mainly in Jhansi-Bhopal section.
Two things could be down
1) Convert the Train to Rajdhani hence providing catering services to Bhusawal and Agra in down direction & Jhansi and Bhusawal in UP direction.
The travel time could be increased as if the travel time is increased it will be able to run bi weekly with addition of more stoppages like Kalyan, Manmad and Jalgaon.
It can run with current timetable ontime no matter its Rajdhani timetable because when A Garib Rath can run on same Rajdhani timetable so can a AC Express.

sir ek cheez hoti hai timing .... 10-15 min slower ho to kuch nahi hota par timings achche hone chahiye ... SBC Rajdhani ke timings jabardast hai .... hyderbad se bangalore and vice versa wale bhi ise khoob use karte hai only because of good timings

This is just another ordinary train running in our WCR . I love the way WCR shows the train where it stands :)
One more thing i want to say that the hoopla that has been created for this train shows low standard of CR zone because even a an ordinary thing looks big to them .There are far better trains like Mumbai BCT rajdhani , AK Rajdhani , SBC rajdhani etc but never seen people of those zones creating issues for small small things.This proves where CR stands compared to other zones.
