Usually Non SF trains in BZA-RJY-SLO get heavily delayed for Freight/SF clearance & almost all are slacked in their last leg @ VSKP/COA!!

Its usually 1:14 Hrs for SLO-COA, coz train usually arrive delayed by 1:50 to 2:00 hrs ex SLO!!
I guess this got link with Rake handling capacity of CCT/COA as Circar allowed to enter past COA-LTT Dep!!

Departures at *4:15, 4:30, 5:00, 6:00* then first Arrival at 7:23. No Arrivals until Next Departure at 8:45 after which
Arrivals Line up as *9:50, 12:15, 13:30, 13:50*. No Dep in between Arrivals & next Departure line up at *13:55, 14:30, 19:10*. No Dep in between Arrivals & next Dep lines up at *20:35, 21:15, 21:40, 23:15*
Only 13:50 Arr got a clash with 13:55 Dep or else COA handles one train at a time!!

What is humiliation? My take on:
1. YouTube video heading: Train humiliates or get thrashed
2. Tag King/Queen of Zone/Route: Humiliation on other train of the route
3. SF not been fastest anymore
4. To
highlight it's Overtakes or bad schedule or how it Overtake AP before WL
PS: It's not just TN which report BT but less slacked trains like AP run BT at most stations in JHS-NDLS (shown by me earlier). AP is detained at ET outer for no less than 30-35 mins till TN departs. Gondwana Exp not running let TN/AP report BT at BPL/JHS!!

Lets presume PNBE-NDLS train with ARA/BXR Halt & 100 Berth Capacity. PNBE-ARA: 25+10 WL, PNBE-BXR: 15+5 WL, PNBE-DDU: 60+30 WL * ARA-DDU: 25+15 WL, BXR-DDU: 15+10 WL * DDU-NDLS: 100+15 WL
Occupancy till DDU: Booked 140, Non canceled WL 70, Occupancy 210% * Till NDLS: 325%
Usually M/E/SF with 125% Occupancy makes 85% Revenue against Capacity. You need to have Occupancy at 150% plus for M/E or 115-120% for Raj/DRNTO/HS (as they got Dynamic Fare to balance)!!

1. Pic 1: Train-Wise Earning. Poorva & HWH/BKN Figures clubbed. Raj, HWH-JU, Poorva, Padatik, Calcutta Mail, Vikramshila tops the list!!
2. Pic 2: Trip-wise Earning. Raj, Calcutta Mail, HWH-JU, Himgiri, Shipra, Kalka Mail tops the list
3. Pic 3: Rake-Wise Earning. PNBE JS is matchless with one Rake (Figure Doubled). Shipra, Himgiri pushed up. Toppers in this list are actual top earners which will show HWH DRNTO but not SDAH DRNTO coz of 4 Rake!!

May 12 1862. Inaugural run. How? Till 30th June 1862 Madras Railway was 312 Miles, 90 Miles short of MAS-Beypore & 238 Miles shy of MAQ (Finished in 1907)!!
I hope its not a presumption and there must be some train's TT as back up which you link as progression of 46 long years gap of non existence of Through Train/Coach & Rail Network!! click here Tells in 1888 at 18:00 some train DEP MAS which was forerunner to 1 MAS-MAQ Mail!!
I show you non existence of Mail or Interclass Fare in
Madras Railway when almost every Network had it in 1884!!
If its a presumption then Punjab/Calcutta/Nagpur Mail must start in 1858 as TT exist with Ordinary train ply till Vasind!! Either correct me or Timeline!!

click here Post by Mr. DSP Anirudh aka TheMadrasMail . Pic 1: April 14 1862: Governer Special Train MAS-Beypore click here May 12 1862: SGE-PTJ Section open. 30 June 1862: 312 Miles Open for Traffic (MAS-CBE:301 Miles, MAS-Beypore: 407 Miles)
Pic 2-3: Dec 1864: One MAS-CBE train reach CBE at Night & PTJ-Beypore departs morning from PTJ!! No through Train/Coach in MAS-Baypore!!
Pic 4-5: 1875 No Mail Service in MAS-SBC/Beypore Section (MAS-Bombay Mail pioneered Mail Service in MR). 1889 Mail exist (Beypore-CLT opened in 5 March 1888)
need to understand if Line Opening day is marked as opening day for Mail or if it should be actual run day/year with strong evidence??
PS: MAS-CLT was first Mail (MAS-Beypore started in 1868 was forerunner) but interestingly MAS-CLT Mail itself wasnt forerunner of Malabar Exp/Mangalore Mail
