Admin, pls update the train route of 14715/Sri Ganganagar - Tiruchchirappalli HumSafar Express. Shown reversal at Jolarpettai & Yashvantpur...which is not correct. also, mehsana-kalol shown as gauge conversion in process where as this train operated on same route. pls update the color code in Atlas between mehsana-kalol section as BG.
