The train's schedule wrongly had Tuvvur (which does not lie in the train route) instead of Turavur. This caused the distances to be inflated - and hence speed. Corrected now. Thanks for the alert.

To clarify the points. The official trainenquiry site has several train schedules where the stations are mixed up because of similar sounding station codes. For example this train passes through TUVR (Turavur), but the official site has an error, wherein it says it passes through TUV (Tuvvur). That is just a genuine mistake on that site.
The speed calculation is automatic based on the distances. Since Tuvvur is several hundred kms. off the train route, if the train actually passes through Tuvvur, the speed of the train has to be 230+km/h.
Now, the

original mistake has been corrected on this site - train passes through Turavur/TUVR, and hence speed has dropped to a more realistic level (41km/h).

RAC stands for "Reservation against Cancellation". It is an intermediate status between "Waitlist" and "Confirmed Ticket". With Waitlist, you cannot board the train at all.
With RAC, you get "half berth". You share a berth with another RAC passenger, and can board the train to travel. While the train is en route, if the TTE finds that some people did not board at the last minute, he will allot you the "full berth" according to your queue status. If not, then you travel the whole journey sharing the berth.
But, usually, RACs advance

to full confirmation - but there's no guarantee. It's your choice whether you want to travel.

Thanks for detailing out.
And the rules for cancellation of RAC tickets (whether till charting or on charting) are same as of WL tickets. Even, on final charting, if a single passenger remains under RAC on a ticket for more than one passengers, all tickets can be cancelled and Railways will deduct charges as if the entire ticket remained under RAC.

There are other instances of RAC passenger getting a full berth in the train. As and when confirmed passengers vacate their berths (due to alighting enroute), and if the berths are not booked further, then those berths are issued to RAC passengers travelling in the train.

Sir, you are incorrect. As of now, it is 6044/43 only. We do not know but you might be having this impression based upon some news, which is yet to implemented.
Thanks!
