18103 is one of few express that has TT and runs like SF. even after MGS, this train and Purushottam SF chase each other depending on both delay but due to Puru extra halts, it has tough time in keeping pace with it. Tata has been trying for its increase of running days with no success. Also for one station FD it has to travel through the worst BSB-LKO routes adding 2 extra hours in its journey.
Ys tight schedule hai, puru ko paas bhi ane nahi deti if depart early frm mgs for tata.. 18103 after lko it overtake many trains..asli maja to lko k baad hi ata hai.. it should b 5 days a week.. tata bksc pax ko punjab k liye best train hai aur 18101/02 ka bura haal hai..
Last Location Departed from SALARPUR (SLRP) at 22-Dec 15:02 (8 Kms. ahead) . . Now departed after 1hr 37mins standing. The great Lucknow Northern Railway! Waited for Doon Express to cross for this long, I suspect!
