With hwh-kalka running late(latest one is ~4 hrs late), does the Shivalik Express wait ?

If No, can somebody suggest a plan B ?

Thanks,

Is there an upper limit to the wait time ?

Have seen the trains running anywhere between 4-7 hrs late this week.

Can i safely assume that the train waits irrespective of the number-of-hours delay on the hwh-kalka train ?

If kalka mail depart from hwh 4 hrs late it will manage the time on th way, and if the train will reach by 4 hrs late in kalka shivalik will depart when kalka will reached.

Shivalik Exp will not wait more than 30 min for Kalka Mail. Himalayan Queen allows max 1 hr delay in departue for its connecting train from Delhi.

Shivalik Maximum depart time frm kalka is 8.30 AM If kalka will reached after 8.30 am then cant assure you, other option is you will get many cabs from kalka station

Since there is winter so fogy environment is there which pretend to make the train run slow and thus cause delay or make it late. 4-7 hour late too much by the way fo today's standard but you can't do anthing trains are run like this way in India.

I suggest to wait ok!
