**Special Trains- Special Problems**
It's an irony of fact that special trains are most of the time given very ordinary treatment, despite of being called 'Special'. From huge delays (even though you pay extra fare in a special fare special, you may bet that your train will be delayed) to less occupancy, special trains face countless problems. Let's try to list the 'special problems' out and see which one of them is mostly hated. So vote for the fact about the special trains you dislike most.
**PS:- Definitely there are exceptions like Special

Most of the time specials are much slower than the regular trains in the same route- this applies for both ME or SF

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair.
