Twin-tone "White Diamond" heading Black Diamond Exp cruises through Bally

fondly call this train to be the younger sister of 12339/12340 Howrah (HWH)- Dhanbad (DHN) COALFIELD Superfast Express.

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.
