Is there a way that we can find out how many seats are available to booking when the booking opens up? I want to find this out for Swaraj Express 2472 from UMB to BDTS. The problem is, the tickets even for 3 months in the future start getting sold immediately after the booking window opens at 8.00 am so the "available" figure found on the website is always less than the maximum. I want to find out the total capacity for a particular station pair, before a single booking is made. Is this possible?

Yes.

The bookings for the first day don't start till 08:00, but the websites open at 04:00, so you have a 4 hour window to find out the total number of berths used for that sector.

I've tried this myself on a sector that always sold out within minutes, and managed to find out the total berths available.
