On My summer vacation I planned to go to my home town JALPAIGURI and Spend a week there.
As planned I booked a Ticket in 12363 Haldibari ICE from Kolkata.
On 10th May morning. Dad said that he cannot come with me to the station so I Boarded a the fast S11 Bus from Sodepur More and got down at the end of TALA bridge walked about a Kilometere and reached the station bang on 7:58.

of the shunter loco said me “SABDHANE JEYO”,”Keu Kichi dile khabena” .( Well he was familiar to me ..later remembered that he lives in our neighbourhood) (translatioan “Be Careful during your Journey” and “Don’t eat anything from a stranger”) .

Meanwhile. The Empty Rake of my train was pulled into platform by the parent loco BWN WDM2 16697.

The Rake composition was LOCO-SLR-D1-D2-D3-C1-D4-D5-D6-D7-D8-SLR ( I WAS IN D5)
Saw a Brown liveried WDS6 Shunting BCNA rakes in adjacent Yard.
The Train departed Bang on Time at 9:05hrs
Missed many things as my seat was on the opposite side of action i.e. left side
Surprised to see that the coach was mostly empty. There are only 15 passengers in the compartment if I count myself even in the summer rush. And upon asking the TTE he said with a smile that most of them are Going to NJP and no more reservations have been made in D5.
