Double Alco combo creates a typhoon on HB Chord at 110 kmph.. Agression at its very best!!

Whoa!! On its day, this Super-Crawler might also defeat Bhopal Shatabdi!! Extremely aggressive 13134 Varanasi (BSB)- Sealdah (SDAH) UPPER INDIA Super Crawler Express headed by somewhat rare-link 16324R WDM- 3A of JMP (Jamalpur) shed and a dead 17925 WDM-2 of BWN (Burdwan) shed (ACD fitted)

storms through the Down Main Line at Baruipara at no less than 110 km/hr.. Just look at the dust storm created!! Seems I have to insure my eyes..
The train takes more than 26 hours to cover less than 900 kms with 76 halts and average speed of 33 km/hr!!
The train uses an extremely zig-zag route, i.e. Varanasi- Mughal Sarai- Dildarnagar- Ara- Danapur- Patna- Mokama- Kiul- Jamalpur- Bhagalpur- Sahibganj- Barharwa- Rampurhat- Bolpur Shantiniketan- Burdwan- Sealdah route..
The train was one of the first trains to travel between Calcutta and Delhi. But after Asansol- Patna- Mughal Sarai MAIN Line and Asanol- Dhanbad- Mughal Sarai GRAND CHORD Lines were introduced, and more and more trains were introduced on those routes, this train lost its sheen, and was made to run till Mughal Sarai. At that time, the train had two sleeper coaches.. Later it again got extended till Varanasi, but lost one sleeper coach.. Now the train is a lilliput 9 coacher, and have just a solitary reserved coach..

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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...
