::::TRIP EXPERIENCE:::::
Had a small train journey in 12484 from Ambala Cant to New Delhi to board a flight at IGI Delhi scheduled at 1630 hrs,...So had choice to book in trains passing thro New Delhi only...not Old Delhi...so target was to take a train so as to arrive NDLS before 1400 hrs..to have enough time for boarding the Airport Metro express...reach Airport and do all formalities etc.
The choice was b/w 12058, 12716, 14732 and 12484, but 14732 was ruled out as it does not touch NDLS. Since I had earlier travelled in 12058 and 12716, the obvious choice was 12484,,,,with as usual excitement of boarding a new train for first time ever...
Since I had arrived at station at around 0900

or so, did all the rail fanning which are covered in
/blog/post/403896
Now the train arrived on time[+/-5 minutes] at PF#1 at UMB....and the loco incharge was GZB WAP-1#22044,,, THE LOCO ARRIVE WITH HEAD HELD HIGH, AS it has been allotted PF#1.The coaches were pretty old, with GS coaches followed by S1 and S2 followed by GS, and then A1, B1, PC followed by other sleeper coaches - a total of 9 sleeper coaches..
There was unusual attachment of GS coach in between S1-S2 and other Coaches..The train had 5 minutes longer halt, as there was lot of luggage being loaded in the SLRs.
the train had its main name-board on 3 languages - Eng, Hindi and Punjabi, while some coaches had Malyalam name-boards too..!
The train slowly starting chugging out, and without exerting much, carried on with journey, as it had 12716 Sachkhand Express, moving ahead of it with lot of stoppages..
The train had 2-3 slowdowns at Karnal, Panipat, and thro' Delhi areas, but never stopped completely until it entered Delhi area.
On he way, had few passing trains at high speeds, of which I could notice one only 1- a passenger departing from PNP towards branch line of Rohtak/Bhiwani.. with a BALDIE,,..
While entering the Delhi area, the first noticable train was Mandore Express parked at Sabzi Mandi.This was followed by New Delhi Farakka Express, empty rake being pulled into NDLS fron the lines b/w Sabzi Mandi and Sadar Bazar. Another one being taken to NDLS was Sampoorna Kranti Exp..with YDM..
And then, the outer of NDLS, where lot of WAPs nad WDMs/WDPs are parked around..
In NDLS, the train ushered in PF#3, while PF#2 was occupied by 12191 Shridham Express, being getting ready for departure,,,,
The other trains arriving/departing at that time in NDLS were:-
PF#1 empty
PF#2 12191
PF#3 12484
PG#4 12716
PF#5 Jalandhar - NDLS express14682/12459 NDLS-ASR SF ICE
PF#6 Gomti 12419
PF#7 Andaman Express 16032
PF#8 12398 Mahabodhi Express
PF#9 Uttaranachal Exp.
PF#15 Rajdhani 12435
Thats the end of short and sweet train journey..which was followed by Airport Metro journey,.!
Thanks..!

i want to hardly request the central railways to kindly take some action regarding the late running of 12919 indore-jammu tawi (malwa express) as this is only a train from indore to jammu tawi and lots of people like to travel from this train but this train is always made late in behalf of running other trains on their right time. all other trains from jammu tawi to their destination and from their destination to jammu tawi run on their shedule time but this train is always made late either between jhansi - mathura or between new delhi - ambala cant junction due to which the passengers travelling from this train get very disappointed and if no action will be taken regarding it in future , then no person would like to travel from this train which will cause a huge loss to indian railways and specially the people.......

i request the western railways to kindly attach one additional coach of a.c.-3tier & a.c.-2tier in train no.12919 (indore-jammu tawi, malwa express) & 12920 (jammu tawi-indore, malwa express)because all the trains from jammu tawi are granted with maximum 4 coaches of a.c.3 tier & 3 coaches of a.c.2 tier but malwa express contains only one coach of a.c.2tier and 2 coaches of a.c.3 tier . the western railway should grant some coaches to malwa express as this is also a long distance train and number of people like to travel from it. some short diatnse trains like intercity express from indore to h.nizamudin contains 4 coaches of a.c.3 tier, 3of a.c.2tier & one of a.c.1class but malwa express contains only total 3 coaches.......
so please kindly focus on my subject so that the passengers can travel with great happiness from this train
