I plan to travel from SML to ASR as follows:-
1. SML-KLK by 52458 SML KLK Passenger, Class FC(SML Dep 14:25; KLK Arr 20:10)
2. KLK-UMB by 14887 KLK-BME Chandigarh Express, Class 3A(KLK Dep 21:30; UMB Arr 23:15)
3. UMB-ASR by 12903 Golden Temple Mail, Class 3A(UMB Dep 01:00; ASR Arr 05:45)
it possible to book a single through ticket (with multiple reservations) from SML to ASR at FC class fare for the total distance?

My trip to Shimla is mainly a KLK-SML-KLK railfanning trip(My stay in Shimla is going to be not more than 4 hours long!). And yes, I suffer from motion sickness, hence I would like to avoid road journeys, especially in ghat sections.

I went to a PRS counter to try it out yesterday. It IS possible to book a through ticket from SML to ASR via KLK and UMB as mentioned in my original post. As I thought, one would be charged at FC fare(with SF charges, though only 12903 happens to be a superfast) for the entire distance since FC happens to be the higher class among the two. The difference in guages makes no difference to this calculation.

I eventually chose not to go for the through ticket from SML-ASR. I had, by then, decided to do SML-KLK by 2S(which costs Rs. 35), so I booked a through ticket(3A class) only from KLK to ASR via UMB. The enquiry I made at the PRS counter about the SML-ASR through ticket was purely to clarify my above doubt. :)
