#FalseGods - Part1
Gone are those days when Superfasts were really 'Superfast', in terms of priority, speed, respect etc. But today, after the introduction of the silly 55KMPH rule (Opinion is my personal), IR is full of Superfasts. Even ironically now Superfast trains outnumber Mail/ Express trains. Hence as expected, they don't get proper priority, often suffers from huge delay (sometimes laughable delays like 1 hr delay in a 4 hrs journey). Even number of halts for SF trains have been weirdly increased (ex. 14 halts in a 271KM journey for 22387/22388). Thus now a days the term Superfast has lost a huge portion of its glory. In this poll listing those trains which as per my opinion should not have
been SF. Since it would be a huge list to cover all the SF's across whole India, I am dividing the list in parts where I cover zone-wise. This is the Part1 for ER/ ECR for West Bengal. After this I will move for zone-by-zone in the next parts. Please vote for your least favorite SF from ER. Thanks for voting.
