So here is a hypothetical situation. If I am in Delhi, and I want to get on a train that has FTQ tickets, and the FTQ tickets are available, and that train leaves at 11:00 AM....at what time before the train leaves will they stop making those tickets available? Is it tied to charting?(forget the office opening/closing times)

Yes. If not sold by charting FTQ berths are released to help clear waitlist.

Don't know about FT quota specifically but my experience with various quotas that I've tried to avail over the years for professional and personal reasons taught me a couple of things:

1. Most quota seats are interchangeable with a few other quota seats. So often when it says a certain % of seats are under one quota it may in actuality cover a certain number of seats for 2-3 quotas in total. Eg: SS quota covers senior citizens, women above 45yrs and travelling alone. Though there is a separate Ladies quota, often as a single woman I get my bookings under SS quota. According to a railway staff it is all 'clubbed under one'. Whether officially or unofficially I don't know.

2.Unless you are high ranking railway staff & family or politically connected, book your tickets atleast 24 hours before the train starts from it's original station for any long journey to avail seats under quota.

You can only book FTQ tickets when you are in India, see the threads in the railway forum of this site.

There is no list of the trains with an FTQ quota.
Go to a site as etrain. On the top left select the stations and date. There is a drop down menu from which you select Foreign Tourist.
Then you get a list of all the trains.
Click on the desired train/class and see if it give available FTQ seats.
At least the 12313 Radjahni express has.
