Steady on. I do trains not culture. Speaking of a Rake's Progress across India have you seen the thread about India's longest train? I don't think it is subject to rake sharing. It probably needs a total rebuild after 82.5 hours continuous travel - assuming that it's on time.

A rake is normally shared by not more than 2 trains. So the rake goes from A to B where its renamed and them goes from B to C. Later it retraces back to A thru B. There is a time period of a few hours between each leg to allow for delays and washing, cleaning and maintenance.

Quote:Rake Sharing means simple to understand. Let us assume now a train arrived at a main station after its journey that stipulated by authorities. Either it goes to maintenance for washing side or
it will ready to go on the name of other train that scheduled for within an hour.
'Ex: Train 'A' goes to Hyderabad to Warangal. Another Train 'B' runs Hyderabad to Khazipet. 'A' Finishes its journey and return Hyderabad just now. Now 'B' Train has to go Khazipet. But its still in transit as per the schedule. Time is running. In the meantime, as per the schedule 'A' has to take in the form of 'B' and will ready to go Hyderabad to Khazipet. When 'B' comes the vice versa. This is as per my knowledge.
