    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

My Trip From Nadiad JN to Maninagar JN : 19011/Gujarat Express
I and my 5 Friends Reached the Nadiad Station nearly at 1:32 PM and as we entered the station the announcement was made that 19011 Mumbai Central Ahmedabad JN Gujarat Express Would Arrive in 10 Minutes .
My two Friends Rushed to the Ticket Counter and got the Tickets in about 5 Minutes . As they Came we were able to see a BL WCAM 1 approaching towards us in full glory . I was sure about it to be Gujarat Exp . We were standing in the Middle of the Station and had to run nearly 20 to 30 meters to avoid being in a AC coach .

Gujarat Exp. was Approaching , I Saw a BL WCAM 1 approaching from other side . The Train was 59442/Ahmedabad Mumbai Central Passenger , many people were hanging at the door or seating on the stairs .
Concerned about Gujarat Express , my friends hopped into D5 Coach of the Gujarat Express [ Let TC go to Hell ] and were standing near the passage of D4 and D5 .
The Interiors of the coach were Rebuilt and the seats were quite new and comfortable . But the Exteriors were Dirty and the colours were fading off at some points .
We saw a of vendors moving around in the train selling their items . The Coaches hich I could see were Jam packed with some persons of Up Down .
From Nadiad JN the Loco showed the Aggression and constantly maintained speed over 80 Kph till outer Mahemdavad Kheda Road . The Train Smoothly Deacclerated while Entering into the Station .
After two minute halt , the train again picked up speed and moved towards Barejadi Nandej Station . But there were constant multiple breakdown of speed through which we crawled into Barejadi Station .
There was a Brief Halt at Barejadi Station of nearly 8-10 Minutes because a BL WCAM 1 Hauled a BOX Wagon Rake was pulled reverse on the loop line from the Main Down line . After BOX Wagon Rake uccessfully pulled into a loop line we got a sudden green Signal and we proceeded further towards our destination .
The Train again pulled aggressively towards Maninagar to make up lost time . We aggressively overtook 59440/Mumbai Central Ahmedabad Passenger standing on Loop Line at Vatva Hauled by BL WCAM 2P with two empty wagons right behind the loco .
Then we took our Bags and stood at the Door to Exit the train at Maninagar after a wonderful Journey .
MY GREATEST REGRET OF THAT JOURNEY WAS THAT I WAS NOT ABLE TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF MY FAVOURITE TRAIN 12010/SHATABDI EXPRESS AS I HAD TO A BRTS BUS TOWARDS MY HOUSE .
