It was Dec 20.2015
I reached ndls well before time(0600), to know that it was running 2hrs 10min late. Dense fog,extremely chilly morning. I was frustrated. Even being a train enthusiast i was cursing myself to choose Goa Smprk Kranti as an option to reach BRC.
Train left ndls at around 0830 hrs, halt at NZM 10mins. But as it departed from NZM, it started cruising at around 105,110kph. I started enjoying, this was not the end;

halted at MTJ just for 3 seconds and again BRC WAP5 got on to its duty. Bannng......it was simply running..as if it wanted to prove me its worth!!
BTE was left stunned, so was SWM. It took rest at Kota for 15 mins, it was delayed by 55 mins at kota. It slowed down at RTL but kept on moving on the loop line and skipped it.
Next halt was somewhere between Nagda and Dahod for 10 mins. Finally, it pulled into BRC 10mins before time!!
Travel time was same as that of BCT Rajdhani!!
My best travel experience as far as speed is concerned.
Pantry- only Tomato soup was upto the mark. Rest i managed from Kota(some snacks).
Love this train.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
