**Question of honor?**
Since after LHB fication the Livery is getting common in between Rajdhani and other trains, do you feel this is an injustice to Rajdhani?
I don't have any issue with the common livery12%10
Rajdhani should stick to the current livery. other trains should get a new theme (Please comment)39%32

The livery of Rajdhani train being given to sub-standard Mail/Express train does not do justice to giving any livery to a train. If IR wants to abolish livery, then it should produce white coaches. But, since the L.H.B. Coaches come pre-painted in Red Colour, they feel to lazy to change the colour to some other colour. Very bad approach. Livery is what distinguishes different class of trains.

In fact, the present livery of Humsafar can be modified a bit and given to the superfast trains. They look better in blue colour. Red is only suitable for the King Rajdhani.

Great compilation:
- First Rajdhani to get air brakes - 151/152 Bombay Rajdhani (note the 3-digit numbers then). In fact, it was the first IR train to get air brakes.
- First Rajdhani to have no commercial halts - 101/102 Howrah Rajdhani. 2nd Rajdhani with no commercial halts - Bombay Rajdhani. Later on, tech halts were converted to commercial.
First Rajdhani with longest non-stop run - August Kranti Rajdhani: Vadodara to Kota. 2nd Raj to join this list is Trivandrum Rajdhani.

Many trains skip few major station on grand trunk route i.e mas-ndls...which station deserve to halt all trains...
1) only junctions and district of the state and major stations are consider
2) ngp is not included(coz only 1 train dont have comm halt)
please consider only mas/sc/SBC/TVC/vskp/bza bound trains from ndls or to ndls .
Please comment any other station
Note: tagging fab 4 of ir and sk/raj/dur/gr of south bound
Please cooperate...

There are 21 pairs of Rajdhani Trains running at present.
After the introduction of Duronto trains in 2010 by the then Rail Minister, Mamata Banerjee, everyone thought that this train would lose its priority.
But honestly saying and asking, that these trains have been able to keep pace with the Duronto and Premium Trains.
Moreover, a #Duronto train is a second option for
a passenger, #Rajdhani train at first.
Very few Duronto trains are able to run with great popularity like Mumbai Duronto, Howrah Duronto, Allahabad Duronto, Chennai Duronto.
Comment on your favourite Rajdhani.......
not just #railfanning but train which offers best comfort with max. priority.
