**Too much privilege?**
For past few years a trend has been set by IR. A train is being given commercial Halt within a very short span at another station of the same city shortly after departing from a major station. There are countless examples throughout the country, amidst which some notable examples are Guwahati/ Kamakhya, CSTM/ Dadar, NDLS/ NZM/ Delhi Cantt, HWH/ SRC, BPL/ Habibganj, SBC/ BNC, Patna/ Rajendranagar, ADI/ Sabarmati etc. And not only ordinary Mail/ Express, many big names like Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani, Ajmer Shatabdi, Bengaluru Shatabdi, Ashram, Shram Shakti, Saraighat, North East, Vikramshila, Gitanjali, Punjab Mail, Kalka Mail, Bengaluru Mail etc are falling under this scheme in recent days.

TN is more exclusively for Delhi and Chennai Cities. Probably the fact that NZM is a large terminal with trains towards Agra and Kota may justify this halt. Also probably due to convenience of passengers and traffic factors , NZM is given halt.

TN TNSK APSK TL KA KASK KESK goa are special case. ordinary regular Sf like thirukural ddn mdu dhakshin need not skip MTJ AGC like stations. if traffic is huge and places have other alternaive trains for that destination then v can think of such skipping.

Thirukkural's priority is same as Sampark Kranti (APSK/TNSK, as these 3 share same slot). It can't be termed as an "ordinary regular Sf" in my opinion....

Latter as SF,
Because when you calculate the speed in section where it shares slot (NDLS-Erode), it is 60+
Isn't it enough to call it as SF?

Also, APSK/TNSK/Thirukkural have slot-sharing right from

the starting station (NZM)......but Himsagar/Navyug already cover a long distance before Delhi + too many halts before that. So not possible to compare both cases

Legendary 12859 Mumbai CST-Howrah Gitanjali Superfast Express with DLW SRC WAP 7 at Badnera.Jn. Arrived 10 mins before and halted for 25 mins. I talked to Loco pilot he said there is no permanent allotment of WAP 7 to this train. Anything can be there.
If you observe that big loco number pic, there TATANAGAR was written at black painted portion.
