**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.
you thing that it is justified?
1) Yes. it helps to serve a big city better61%34
2) Yes. it generates better revenue0%0
3) Both 1 and 22%1
4) No. public transport can't satisfy everyone. people should also compromise a bit2%1
5) No. it unnecessarily slows down a train2%1
6) No. instead the Halt should be given to another deserving station enroute2%1
7) All of 4. 5 and 60%0
8) Justified for short journey trains (Pass/ Fast Pass/ICE etc) but not justified for Long Journey M/E. Superfast. Premiums30%17
9) Your opinion (Please comment)2%1

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....

Re# 2845598-13            Tags   Past Edits
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

Kalka Mail
Kalka Mail is the name of a train in India connecting Howrah in the E.R. state of West Bengal to Kalka in Haryana . This Connects it to Shimla , the hill station capital of Himachal Pradesh and one time summer capital of India .
Run by the EAST INDIAN RAILWAYS COMPANY , the train began operation between Calcutta and Delhi in 1866 as the " EAST INDIAN RAILWAY MAIL " . It's run was extended from Delhi to Kalka in 1891 . The train was the principal mechanism by which British Civil servants moved to their summer capital in Shimla from Calcutta with the entire Government machinery traveling on the train at the start of the summer months and returning it at the end of the summer . Both stations , Howrah as well as Kalka , had internal carriageways running along the platform so that the Viceroy and the other high ranking Officer could drive right up to their rail coaches . The carriageways at Howrah is still used today and runs between Platform 8 and 9 but carriageway at Kalka has been converted into Platform .
Kalka Mail has 24 Coaches now a days ( 11 Sleeper , 1 First A.C. cum A.C. 2 Tier , 3 A.C. Two Tier , 3 A.C. Three Tier , 3 General , 2 SLR and 1 Pantry Car )
