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..

It may not be the fastest one in the circuit, but it serves a lot of Passengers of intermediate stations.. Because a lot of people from the small towns can avail this train, which is generally skipped by the faster ones..

On a lighter note, this train can be renamed as Shiv-Kali Express.. As it connects Varanasi with Dakshineshwar..

BWN does not have WDM- 2A dear... Its either WDM- 2 or WDM- 3A.. And ya, it gets BWN WDM- 2/ 3A.. Surely the BWN WDM- 2 had a failure, and the JMP WDM - 3A was pressed into the rescue act..
.
And thanx a lot..

    The new IRI logo can now be seen. Actually, we are reluctant to make changes to the logo (for the sake of recognizability and consistency), but some very slight modification was done this time. Here is the post-facto rationalization of the logo: . 1. The Chakra is the Wheel symbolizing Transportation/Travel which...

    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.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

    Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points: . 1. Previously, the tracks were crude with many straight line segments. Only on clicking on the individual tracks, it would assume a finer form. Now, the tracks are refined even on the overview...
