अगर मेट्रो रेल को भारतीय रेल के साथ जोड़ेंगे तो दुर्घटना होने की संभावना भी बढ़ जाएगी इसलिए मेट्रो को निजी कंपनी के हाथों में रहने दें।

None other than Howrah Rajdhani
If all the trains are running on time, this PAIR of RAJDHANI makes highest number of overtakes in it's journey.
The TOTAL number of overtakes by both UP and DN trains (e.g. If 12953 August Kranti Rajdhani makes 15 scheduled overtakes as per IRI TT and 12954 makes 15 overtakes, the total will be 30).

I am surprised to see that people are voting for PNBE Rajdhani; are they voting based on any data or just because they love that train? It is very obvious that upto/from MGS, all the pair of Raj make or do the same OTs and HWH/SDAH Raj goes via Grand Chord covering a much longer route OT even more trains. A general rule of thumb on this route will say that longer the route, more the OTs done.

Presenting the pics captured at MAS on an overcast Sunday morning. Actually I was waiting to capture the Cheran Express in its LHB avatar. There were two WAP7s both honking and approaching the platform. It was a parallel action. One was hauling an LHB rake. It was Cheran. I thought it would be received on PF.No.5 but at the last minute, they announced that it would arrive on PF.No.11. As I was running out of time, I couldnt capture it. So, I waiting to capture the other train hauled by a P7. It was the GT Express hauled by RPM's white stallion 30364 arriving 45-50 minutes behind schedule.
Pic 1:Brindavan Express shunted onto PF.No.3.
2to5:ED WAP4 22298 returning to BBQ ETS aftee hauling 12692 SSPN Express from SBC.
Pics 6to12:RPM WAP7 30562 returning to BBQ ETS.
Pics 13to31:The legendary Grand Trunk Express arriving on PF.No.5 led by 30364.
