I took a trip in 12876 Neelachal on 16 Oct between Lucknow and Kharagpur. Train arrived LKO 40 min late. ASR HWH stood parallel to it. We left LKO before 13049 ASR HWH(that goes via SLN ). But PBH route is very congested and we were stopped at many places for crossings.Spotted xings were with Padmavat and Bundelkhand Exp. Reached BSB 2 hr 50 min late. Food was not delivered by IRCTC E Catering due to heavy delay. Maintained its delay till MGS where we xinged with DNR ANVT exp and Imperial mail. ASR HWH was scheduled to arrive after us.Coaches were new but too crowdy.Toilets were biotoilet equipped. AC 3 Tier easily had 100 people per coach. Loco link for NDLS to LKO was MGS P4. For LKO to MGS it was a WDP 4D. MGS to KGP was a red P 4 of unknown shed. Reached...
KGP with a delay of 3 hrs.

Agreed. A daily train between lucknow and bbs is needed.
The LKO RBL route still has a very long way to go for electrification. Majority of this section is still single tracked.

Oh my.... what stretches have been doubled between Utretia Jn and Janghai Jn ? IR has started so many trains via RBL which they could have easily run via the double track electrified route of Jaunpur City - Sultanpur !!!!

Literally nothing between UTR and Janghai. LKO-PBH is pretty barren single line. Bhadohi-BSB is double line. PBH-Bhadohi is a mix[single for the most part].
IR runs most trains here since it is politically important route. Raebareily and Amethi are congress mainstays.
