diamond in action with a train, which I captured for the first time. Coals are generally termed as Black Diamond, and since this train connects Kolkata, Naihati and Burdwan with the industrial and coal belts of Dhanbad, Kulti, Barakar, Kumardubi, Sitarampur, Asansol, Ranigunj, Andal, Durgapur, Panagarh, Waria and Mankar, so this train is also equally named. And we railfans fondly call this train to be the younger sister of 12339/12340 Howrah (HWH)- Dhanbad (DHN) COALFIELD Superfast Express.
Bally is the station where the HB Main and HB Chord Lines diverge after coming together from Howrah. And over the road-cum-rail bridge (which is seen in the video), the lines from Sealdah comes, which have another station for their own, namely Bally Halt. So this is a unique example of a railway station being situated just over another different railway station.
Giving me company on the trip was Anal Ghosh.
