I tried using :

different system... but still the problem remains the same!.

Thumbs up solved!

ok..guys finally the problem is solved
and it turns out to be very silly!

the problem was wit the source station..
whn i typed 'Bangalore City' in the 'From' field..two station names had come :
Bangalore CY JN (SBCN)
Bangalore CY JN (SBC)
and i was choosing the first one... which is wrong.
whn i selected 'Bangalore CY JN (SBC), i'm able to see the train list

sorry guys!..and thanx for ur time.

And all the trains go from Yeshvantpur, not SBC...............Everybody knows that, even my cat, so no need for IRCTC to make it easy.

(I'm poking fun at the IRCTC website, your example is just one of hundreds of searches that suffer the same problem, IRCTC entered all the data poorly, and didn't test the website enough, yet they charge for their services)
