For present folks, Railfanning is Clicking photos, Making videos, race blogs n recording mps data
For present folks, Railfanning is Clicking photos, Making videos, race blogs n recording mps data.
But I think Railfanning is beyond this also.
Those who dont believe in it may happily call me a non RF.

Travelling in SLB's watching Stations,bridges,OHE poles (with distance slabs), calculating speed based on distance travelled and time taken (before smartphone with GPS and App came) passby is also a kind of Rfing.

------------ The First Duronto Of IR aka SDAH NDLS Duronto is in a "VICIOUS CIRCLE OF BUREAUCRATIC BLOODBATH" as because only it is not Rajdhani-------------
Just see what the "Chief Operating Manager" of Eastern Railway has replied to my Grievance.
Also see the "Arr/Dep" History of this train which can easily give the answer of the Chief Operating Manager's statement "WAP-4 is conducive of maintaining the Punctuality of this Train"

Wrong perception totally.
It used to run with P-4's when I travelled at least 4-5 times during 2004-2006 and it used to reach by 1010am.
I clearly remember once I reached 25 mins ahead at Sdah out of the 4/5 trips I made during that period.
.
Also don't forget Hwh Raj used to run with P-1's during 90's and always it maintained the same schedule with precision.
.
Some modified P-4's are equally capable of hitting 140's.
See Hwh Duronto, specially when it runs bang on
...

time and is actually at par with Sdah Raj towards Ndls and faster tha Sdah Raj towards Bengal.
Hwh Duronnto runs with P-4 with lower alloted MPS but still performs well.
Its a myth or misnomer that Sdah Raj is going backwards with P-4's.

Please don't mislead the Forum
Sir,
The train was introduced in Sept 2009. So How "It used to run with P-4's when I travelled at least 4-5 times during 2004-2006 and it used to reach by 1010am." be possible.

Pls come to life.
I said about Sdah Raj.
If Raj can reach BT/OT while being hauled by P-4, Hwh Duronto maintaining better time with P-4, then why can't Sdah Duronto.
.
I'm well aware of this introduction stats given by you as I love IR since the age of 4 (1983) when I travelled by FC Class of 5 Amritsar Mail till LKO.

Funny DISAGREE option used.
If somebody can't understands the post, then he must read it carefully rather than proudly posting Disagree option.
And still after clarifying, somebody still goes through with the DISAGREE option.
Absolutely funny.
Carry on Bhai.
I can understand your feeling and present situation being an RF.Not worth posting anything more.

Even When it come to profit making BCT RAJ is the King of Indian Railway. Acc to Interim report "for Mobilization of Resources for Major Railway Projects
and Restructuring of Railway Ministry and Railway Board" by Shri Bibek Debroy BCT Raj is the highest profitable train of India railway (among all RAJ, SHTB, DRNT and other train). BCT RAJ give per trip profit of around Rs 3,14,516 to IR. In second place is 12309/10 RJPB Rajdhani with per trip profit of Rs 2,57,716. In third place come the speed star 12001/02 NDLS-HBJ STHB with per trip profit of Rs 2,49,994. In fourth place is ASR SHTB.
Raja Babu aka HWH Raj gives per trip profit of only Rs 69,100 and SDAH Raj Rs 64,982.

Can't believe this interim report, but i feel some wrong data is being put forward by IR.
There are lots of questions.
First Question:
1) 12245/12246 is on WL from ARP. The Interest alone on the ticket bookings could be in lakhs.The train runs full on all of its running days almost 11 out of 12 months.
2) BCT raj runs 75kms less than HWH Raj but the fares are same. So 75kms of EXTRA fare of 10 3A coaches alone will account to that extra profit margin.(Less usage of Staffs and AC running cost for 45 mins approx.)
3)Sdah Raj runs on WL on
...
Read more...
all days and hence IR added an EXTRA 3A and it's the Only Raj with 12(+1 extra very often) 3A coaches.If IR is running at a loss, they wouldn't have added an extra coach.
No comments on other trains as i'm not aware of the situations.

the interim report is good and makes some hard hitting (though uncomfortable) points on railways and its operations.
The data presented here though seems suscept as some popular trains are having figures negative or too low. perhaps their measurement methodology involves figures we have no idea of.
For ex: cost of electricity per unit. BCT Raj passes through Gujarat and Maharashtra which have some really competitive rates for electricity. Perhaps on Eastern end these rates are quite high owing to shortage etc.

Yes, makes hard hitting but the stats put forward puts a lot of question mark about 3 trains straightway on the reporting analysis.
Extremely tough to believe the stats about BCT raj, HWH Raj, Sdah Raj and Hwh-Ypr Duronto.
Hence the viability of report is at stake to me atleast because blindly believing on something what is put up needn't be digested completely.

agreed. Whether technical or not, research methodology should always be given, or else it becomes difficult to trust stats and tables like the above it one.
The figures about HWH raj aren't the only one that's doubtful, i still can't get my head around what the table says about PUNE-NZM duronto. Its waitlisted easily a month in advance, yet it's shown in loss.

He then went on to then state in Tamil that 2 of the water tankers, quite of a few which were parked in the open area adjoining the slum, were missing and feared to have been stolen
It was a probably a mixture of both :)

Jun 17 2015 (4:46PM)
Little wonder that I decided to go closer to the track, a little ahead of my complex, for a closer better look, which ultimately proved to be too close for my comfort and ended as up with a narrow escape from danger
Fortunately I could not understand a word of what they were trying to achieve or the meaning of the abuses
AN ATTEMPTED RAILFANNING THAT WENT HORRIBLY ASTRAY
The Bangalore - Mumbai railway line goes alongside my apartment complex at Hoysalanagar just past the nondescript Chennasandra Stn. I get an elevated view of the track from my flat but not good enough to satiate my desires as a railfan. Little wonder that I decided to go closer to the track, a little ahead of my complex, for a better look, which ultimately proved to be too close for my comfort and ended up with a narrow escape from danger.
It was around 7.30 last evening and I tried to find a way to get as near as possible to the railway track in order to have a glimpse of the majestic NDLS-bound Karnataka Express. To reach the vantage point I had to negotiate
...
Read more...
on foot a kuccha road leading from the 4th or 5th Main of T.C.Palya Main Road, Ramamurthy Nagar to a mound overlooking the rail line. Between the road and the track was a slum which I had to cross to reach my destination.
Just as I crossed the narrow path that led to the slum, I was in for a rude shock. I was accosted by 3 young toughs one of whom placed his hand on my shoulder in a vice-like grip and another caught hold of my left hand. The third fella was facing me and launched a torrent of abuse in Kannada. Suddenly he snatched my mobile which was in my right hand. After I could recover from the initial shock, I asked in Hindi " Yeh, kya ho raha hai ? ". My question was greeted with another barrage of abuse. Fortunately I could not understand what they were trying to achieve or the meaning of the abuses. After some time I gently said " Kannada gothilla ", the only 2 words I know in the local language. The abusive one in the group asked me what language I knew and I said English and Tamil. He then went on to state in Tamil that 2 of the water tankers, quite of a few which were parked in the open area adjoining the slum, were missing and feared to have been stolen. And that I was considered a PRIME SUSPECT, having been caught loitering near the parking lot. They said that I would not be allowed to leave the place till the police arrived and took me into custody. And only then would my mobile be handed over to me. They asked me what was my purpose in entering that area. My attempts to explain to them that I was trying to approach the track for the purpose of railfanning (Well I didn't use that word) cut no ice. In fact it only made matters worse and one of them asked in Tamil, WHAT WAS THE NEED TO COME ALL THE WAY THERE JUST TO SEE A TRAIN GO BY. However, with the passage of time and the lack of much reaction/response from my side, better sense prevailed among the group which had then increased to about 10 members.
By now , I felt mildly amused and realized that it was a case of mistaken identity. 7 or 8 minutes had passed by then and I started telling them in Tamil, that I felt sorry for their loss but was in no way responsible for what had happened. I asked them to accompany me to my flat where the security personnel would confirm my identity as a retired Bank Officer. They then asked me details about where I lived and finally after 10 mns let me go free with a strict warning not to come anywhere near their slum, whether for railfanning or otherwise.
At the end of the episode I am not too sure whether I was more relieved or amused. It was a probably a mixture of both :)

If that happens, it'd probably be a rare occasion of SRC visiting the JAT-MB-LKO belt.

While onboard the HWH Duronto (12274-Non-AC), it clocked 118-123kmph continuously between MGS - BWN. However it was a disaster from CNB to ALD and then ALD to MGS on 27-05-2015 (running late by 20 hrs @ ALD).
Departed NDLS @ 435am, crossed CNB at 1010/1020am, ALD skipped @1550pm, MGS crossed at 1805/1815pm.

MY SPEED FREE is a very good app with multiple options window and is very stable.
Don't like the Speedometre xFree App so much.

The DOUBLE DECKER's click here
.
Presenting the Double Decker Express Trains ( Diesel Powered ) captured across various zones of the Indian Railways. These are two decked fully air conditioned LHB coaches comprising of 120 seats per coach. Presently there are only Chair cars in these trains and are categorized as Super-fast Trains .
.
The main objective behind starting Double Decker's were to de-congest the heavily crowded routes where there was a demand for a second train. Double Decker's being fully Air conditioned not every one can afford to pay the heavy fare hence some of these trains have resulted in a poor patronage.
...

.
Double Decker's follow the concept of Intercity Trains which departs from source during the Day time and returns back to source by evening. The only exception being the Kacheguda - Tirupati DD which runs one way and returns back the next day.
