****The Rushour at Agra Cantt. i.e 17:00 -18:00 Hrs , For the departure of The Fastest Train of India -***
12049/Gatimaan Express | गतिमान एक्सप्रेस | | گتیمان ایکسپریس | First Ever HD Images From Agra.
Last Year This train made its way onto the platform of Agra Cantt with much fanfare with a lot of Assumptions/speculations from Fellow Railfans here on IRI terming it'll be White Elephant, Won't be ever on time. Will be delayed etc etc.. But this train silently Put those allegations/speculations to Rest with On Time Arrivals(except
Fog season) and Availability. I myself agreed with the second Half, but to my surprise, actual availability and occupancy Differ from Site to Location.
Just Witnessed The Fully Packed, On time Running Gatimaan Express at Agra Cantt. One needs to be present personally to Witness themselves about how Gatimaan has been Treated more than any other VVIP trains At Agra Cantt.
On one hand, Where Train Hostess adds beauty and sense of perfection, Male Catering Staff in Sherwani Outfit reminds me of Staff in Luxury trains in Inda.
then comes the Security Staff of the train with guns at their side, rushing here and there, Escorting the Train before it's departure. PF 6 at this time was hustling with crowd, people were posing with the train board and Hostess then there was me, Just trying to get TB , Loco and Train ki Pic :p
Find Attached HD Pics of Gatimaan Express, with Mr. Azad Singh (RPF-NR DLI Div.) posing with the train and Md. Sartaj of ShreeNathJI Caterers (Outsourced Catering Staff of the Train) helping Last Moment passenger with their coach position. in 5/6 ,7th Pic Respectively.
Loco in Charge was GZB WAP-5 30086 But as soon as the train departed, a surprise was waiting for me, Gatimaan's Another Loco i.e GZB WAP-5 30020 was Standing beside the PF Line. that means Two Dedicated locos were at Agra At this time. Further investigating the matter I came to conclusion(Talk with Staff at AGC) that after incidents of OHE Breaking and Loco getting failed few times, One Loco is kept at each End in the case of Emergency.
Further, I Noticed GZB WAP5 #30020 Met with an accident at 160kmph today when coming to Agra. Loco had Runover, with Blood Stains All over the front of WAP-5 , it was so intense that Blood Stains were also present at the End of EOG(Notice the Last Pic of EOG for Stains at the end) .
Enjoy the Pics. :) Few more will be added later on.

Half Cooked Story by the media. My Main motive of today's visit was to find out how this Story came into limelight.
Truth : - Train Hostesses(all the catering staff) were changed because of the End of Contract of Earlier Catering Company. They didn't Join the Duty on that certain Day due to Contract Issue. , Earlier Female Wore Blue Coat and Male had different attire (Black Coat pant) IR Changed Female's dress code to Black Fitted Coat Pant, and Male now Have Sherwani styled clothing. Now Rail Ahaar has been Chosen instead of IRCTC.

Yesterday (20:10)   Indore-Ajmer train to be flagged off on March 28

Indore: After a gap of over seven years, a direct train between Indore and Ajmer via Fatehabad-Ratlam will start ts journey from March 28. The train will leave the city station at 4.40 am and return at 22.50 pm.
LS speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Railway Minister Suresh Prabahu will flag-off the train (19653/19654 Indore-Ajmer-Indore) via video-conferencing from Rail Bhawan, at 3pm on March 28. On the first day, the train will run as special train and from March 29 it will run as a regular train.
Actually, this train is an extension of
currently running Ratlam-Ajmer train. Importantly with this train the operation of trains from ‘Q’ track in Ratlam will also be rolled out. People of this region have been demanding a direct train to the Holy city of Ajmer. The Railway Board had given its approval for the train in September 2016.
At present, Indore-Jaipur train carries seven link coaches— three sleeper classes, one AC-III and three General coaches— for Ajmer, which later attached to Bhopal-Ajmer train in Ujjain. This train runs on Dewas-Ujjain route, while the Indore-Ajmer train will run on Fatehada-Barnagar route, which would save travel time of two hours.
It may be recalled that before taking mega block for gauge conversion on Indore-Ratlam section almost seven years ago, there were two trains— Meenakshi Express and Khandwa Express— from the city for Ajmer.
Time table of the train
Train No. 19653 Indore-Ajmer with 17 coaches— sleeper class and AC-III class— will depart from the city at 4.40am. It will  reach Ratlam at 6.40am and Ajmer at 1.50pm while train no. 19654 will depart Ajmer at 1 pm. It will reach Ratlam at 8.55pm and Indore at 22.50pm.
Stoppage of train
The train will have stoppages at Nasirabad, Bijainagar, Sareri, Bhilwara, Hamirgarh, Gangrar, Chanderiya, Chittaurgarh, Shambhupur, Nimbahera, Jawad Road, Nimach, Malharagarh, Piplia, Mandsour, Dalauda, Dhodhar, Jaora, Namli, Ratlam, Fatehabad, Barnagar and Indore.
Version Box
“Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will flag-off Indore-Ajmer from Railway Bhawan New Delhi through video conferencing on March 28, at 3 PM.”
-Nagesh Namjoshi, Member, Passenger Amenities Committee of Railway Board.

Yesterday (21:46)   On train to Lucknow, rape and acid attack survivor forced to drink acid; 2 held

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visits her at hospital, promises swift action against culprits
A rape and acid attack survivor of the Dalit community was forced to drink acid while she was travelling on a train to Lucknow on Thursday. The police on Friday arrested two men in connection with the incident. The woman was admitted to the trauma centre of the King George’s Medical College.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited her and promised swift action against the culprits. “Necessary action will be taken soon,” he tweeted soon after his visit. He also directed
the police to provide security to the victim, while announcing ₹1 lakh assistance to her.
In 2009, Bhondhu Singh and Guddu allegedly gang-raped her over a property dispute at her home at Unchahar in Rae Bareli and on December 25, 2013 attacked her with acid.
On March 10, she had gone home to Rae Bareli to see her daughter, who is appearing for Board examinations. On Thursday morning, when she was returning to Lucknow by the Ganga-Gomti Express, the two persons attacked her and forced her to drink acid at the Mohanlalganj railway station, police said.
Colleagues of the victim, who works at a cafe here, alleged that she was forced to drink acid by the accused so that she would not be able to raise her voice against them.
A case was registered against the two persons at the Government Railway Police (GRP) station Charbagh under Section 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons) and 3(2)5 of the SC/ST Act.
Selfies invite flak
Four RPF (Railway Protection Force) jawans were suspended for negligence in duty. The police has also ordered action against three women constables after they clicked selfies with the victim by her hospital bed. The pictures were widely circulated on social media.
A. Satish Ganesh, Inspector General Police (IGP)-Lucknow Zone, termed the three constables “insensitive” and directed the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) and the Senior Superintendent Police (SSP), Lucknow, to take action.
Police ignored plea
The victim’s colleagues alleged negligence on the part of the police, saying the woman had sought police protection in the past due to threats received by her but officials did not pay heed to it.
According to NGO Stop Acid Attacks, the victim was attacked in 2009 by the accused after she filed a complaint soon after the rape, and on December 25, 2013, they made the acid attack on her. She also received a fresh threat letter on January 18, after which the police and administration assured help and security.
