Why are our Super-fast trains not even fast?The Lalbagh express is a "Super fast" on the Chennai to Bangalore track. It takes a full six hours. It has many stops vis-a-vis the prestigious Shatabdhi express which has just one. However, the Lalbagh express never reaches on time. The Shatabdhi express is more punctual, but it is for the super rich. The fares are quite high for any normal middle class person.
The Lalbagh express is not even fast. I do not know why we call it "Superfast" when its actual speed is just around 54 kilometers per hour. Why should we pay a premium for such trains, that are always at least twenty minutes late, at the bare minimum?
Members may please do share their views on similar trains too. Why can't we do something?
