Does anyone know why both the Ranikhet Express and the Sampark Kranti Express are cancelled from 6th to 16th Sep '08?
When checking availaibility during that period, IR's site says 'Train Cancelled'.

Hmm, I'm not so sure that's it. It's only in that period, and a few weeks ago I found the Bandra-Dehradun slow train also cancelled w.e.f. 6th Sep. Other trains are normal.

Anyway, hope that's the explanation and things are back to normal soon, but other than that if anyone has any info, please do update here.

EDIT:
Just read Steve's post. No connection - that problem I've seen too, but this is a clear cancellation in that period; before and after availability is 'normal'.

Funnily enough, that other train (edited in my last post to insert link while you were posting) had a 'cancelled but not really cancelled' issue- wondering if it is the same here.

Apart from Delhi-Kathgodam and Bandra-Dehradun trains, I get the same message if I click to 'availability' for Golden Temple Mail and Paschim Express.

Surely, railway website has been facing some software problems. I can not think of the cancellation of both the trains to Kathgodam during 6-16 Sept.

Better to check with the Advance Reservation Centres than to book thro' website for these dates.

Ranikhet Express is suspended because work is going on the railway trek.

Well, we found out the reason for the September cancellations - a consequence of the installation of the new signalling system at New Delhi station.
http://indianrail.gov.in/clddiv.htm

As for November, it's not the Ranikhet Express that's suspended as such, the Sampark Kranti also says 'Reservation Suspended'.

I suppose we'll just have to wait a few days and see what happens.

I read in a newspaper that New Delhi railway station is under renovation & will be closed till 14 th sept (Not sure about the date). Many trains have been cancelled & many trains will terminate earlier at other stations like Hazrat Nizzamudin, Okhla etc, Could this be the reason for cancellation of trains ?

Dilli: WOW! This is important information for anybody travelling by train, to-fro-via Delhi stations for period 6th Sep to 14-Sep. It needs to be posted in some general Train Threads? Or is it already widely know to IMers? Just to highlight the info: I copy-pasted the heading info from that link below:


DUE TO RE-MODELING WORK INVOLVING INSTALLATION OF THE NEW ROUTE RELAY INTERLOCKING WITH 1278 ROUTES, NEW DELHI RAILWAY STATION WILL REMAIN NON-INTERLOCKED FROM 06/09/2008 TO 14/09/2008. DETAIL OF TRAFFIC PLAN FOR THIS PERIOD GIVEN BELOW. MANY TRAINS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED/DIVERTED/RENUMBERED OR STARTING FROM OTHER PLACES DUE TO THE ABOVE ACTIVITY AT NEW DELHI

Colour Indicator:-
Green:- Train is Diverted Orange:- Train is Cancelled
**Blue:- Terminal Changed
** In case of Terminal Changed the train may be short terminated. (e.g. The train which Runs between Puri To New Delhi (via Kanpur) may terminate its journey to Kanpur )
.

There are already threads discussing this in the Railway forum. Details of the trains affected were posted there weeks ago.
