Twin-tone "White Diamond" heading Black Diamond Exp cruises through Bally
13317 Howrah (HWH)- Dhanbad (DHN) BLACK DIAMOND Express headed by a brand new shining 30311 HWH shed WAP-7 whines, honks and cruises through the Up Main Line of Bally station on HB Main enroute at a TSR of 70 km/hr. It was a beautiful sight to watch the WAP-7, aka the white 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.
