With the induction, the express train
Very true, but not all are alotted to Chennai division. Most are alotted to Madurai division also. Salem division is the most affected. Good atleast now they are realising and alotting. Good decisiont to LHBfy India's fastest Intercity - 12680/12679 Coimbatore Intercity SF!
Hutatma and PUNE SUR ICEs are faster
Yes agree even they reach 20-30 minutes early in solapur or pune
It runs for a shorter distance than CBE intercity, and CBE intercity runs on a very busy and important mainline.
Then isn't it pune solapur important line ??
I agree that CBE ice is fastest,according to the timetable
By tt CBE ice is fastest but in reality 12157/58 Pune Solapur Hutatma Express is fastest because it's departure time from pune is 6:00 PM and arrival time at Solapur is 10:00 PM.but in the reality it reaches Solapur at 9:30-9:40 PM 262 km in just 3:30 hours 74 km/hr
