Also there's so much gap between the line and platform.
Can't be a Platform to host trains.
That might have been made as a By-Pass line or Pit lane for goods.

The problem is the separation of the platform with the track which is unusual.
2/3 coaches outside the platform is understandable but a parallel gap platform with train is asking people not to get down though one has to.

If the pic reflect the extended portion which is not to be used as the original platform length9seems not in picture) is quite sufficient, then i have no concern.

Zahaib, the changing reasons are best known to IR OPS staff only.
However the deductions of Anupam and Kaushik are perfectly right.
However the reasons put forward though are true doesn't really make any logic.

Dont take the example of falaknuma.
If such is the case, then HWH P-4 shouldn't have gone to YPR with Anga,
SRC P=4 shouldn't have gone with YPR duronto,
ITARSI P-4 shouldn't have come with MAS HWH Premium.

Analysing your points Sir. Maybe I'm a little poor in english that's why I couldn't explain.
1. Anga is a weekly train. How many weekly are there in ER/NFR operating with their zone locos ?
2. Duronto isn't SER train ? please read comment #18 of this blog.
3. Please do again read thoroughly #13 and #18 of this blog,

Why should Weeklies be counted out?
And contradiction to #13 , Jnaneshwari and Samarasata runs with SRC all the way.
Falaknuma being an SCR train , ideally should have got VSKP based locos from VSKP to HWH.
.
Also changes are mandatory for Hwh bound SR and SCR trains and CR bound trains to HWH.
But there's no reason why Loco needs to be changed at MLDT for Kanchenjunga.

Weeklies shouldn't be counted because (1.)atleast in nfr no weekly train going towards south via dgr gets a fixed diesel loco link, and that's quite common. (2.) kanchanjunga is a daily train, we are discussing about it here.
Contradictions and exceptions are possible, I agree to it. Add geetanjali to the list as well.

Just for Whimsical reason, nothing should be counted off. It's all about Loco and trains and Weeklies are always counted in for any discussions.
And if NFR does whimsical things, it's the problem of OPS of that zone and Zonal territory .
Geetanjali is a SER train (Number is 12860) and hence gets SRC loco. Is there any wrong in it.(RSA is for the coaches only).
Question is not having money and buying chocolate. Question is Buying chocolate at wrong time, when i feel, i don't require it.

Ok. Counting Anga express. There is no electric shed in SWR, if ubl gives some wdp4 (which is nt feasible). Would it rest for the other four days in howrah/bgp ? Now when the route is electrified, why not a hwh (or some other) shed p4..? Just a question. LSA and availability alongwith traction all are the main reasons for a loco link.

Then how come Himgiri was operating with DP-4 for almost an year when the HWH to LDH is entirely electrified?
Even HWH TPJ/CAPE goes and comes with HWH P-4 and same with SHM - LTT Crawler which gets HWH P-4.
.
Agree LSA and traction are to count in.But some actions by IR is out of bound and cannot be counted with definite reason unless somebody hears from the OPS Staff about the real reason of it.

who could handle such loco

forget about MB. Why there was wastage of diesel upto MGS?
Was there a shortage of Loco or Staff?
I dont know but our Rf instinct sometimes and sometimes lets us fight with reason which is far from actuals of the IR Ops policy.

Got something from IRFCA : Except for long
express services (for which keeping down the number of halts is a priority) hauled by WDM-2, WAM-4, WAP-4, WAP-5, and other such locos for which repair and maintenance facilities
are provided at many major sheds, generally a loco will not work too far outside the territory of its home shed or zonal railway. If it breaks down too far from its territory repair crew have to be sent out from the home shed to take care of it.

Collage to Put reflect Either Both sides of Chatterhat Chattarhat in One Frame
Chatterhat Chattarhat is one of those location just outside NJP to Kishanganj where all the trains generally attain MPS
It is located around 17kms from NJP and a safe bet for MPS of any train (except passenger trains which stop at this station)

And the Curvy approaches to this station adds spice to the Rf's.

Great capture...but that curve is bit confusing as why alignment is done like that?

But still why the changeover like alignment on both sides? Even there was single line, this wouldn't have been required at normal scenarios.

Sir ur pic clearly explains all. At the curves, if we eliminate right part track for njp side beyond Level crossing, and left part for kishanganj at the L-curve, then it would be easy to understand. Earlier only one track was straight, which is the left part of kishanganj side and right part of njp side. The track towards platform later joined the other track..

This circuitous merry-go-round route was because of breaches in the tracks between Howrah & Kharagpur as well as in several places in Orissa, due to heavy rains and floods
I travelled by this train from Howrah to Chennai on the 20th of October, 1979. Well nothing great about that as it was just one among perhaps as many as 25 journeys I have undertaken by this train in its various avatars as 3 UP, 6003 UP, 2603 UP , 2839 UP and now 12839 UP.
However, the intriguing part of this particular journey is that after it departed from Howrah at 20.35 hours, the first 4 halts for this train were like an entry from RIPLEY’S believe it or not. The stoppages at BURDWAN, DURGAPUR, RANIGANJ and ASANSOL may in fact make you think I was going to Delhi and not Madras. From Asansol we changed course and veered away to Tatanagar before following the Howrah-Mumbai line up to Jharsuguda. Then followed yet another deviation towards Sambalpur, Titlagarh, Rayagada,

Vizianagaram and finally Waltair. Thereafter it was familiar territory to Madras via Vijayawada.
This merry-go-round route was because of breaches in the tracks between Howrah & Kharagpur as well as in several places in Orissa, due to heavy rains and floods. As a result the Coromandel remained cancelled for more than a month while the Mail was diverted on a circuitous route through the Eastern Railway network. The South Eastern Railway authorities had published in the media the revised schedule of the train which was as follows :
Howrah 20.15
Asansol 00.15
Tatanagar 4.15
Rourkela 6.50
Jharsuguda 8.20
Sambalpur 9.20
Titlagarh 12.20
Rayagada 14.20
Vizianagaram 16.20
Waltair 18.10
Rajahmundry 21.45
Vijayawada 1.00
Madras 10.00
In accordance with the revised schedule, the train departed from Howrah with a delay of 20 mns at 20.35 hrs and reached Madras only 15 mns late at 10.15 on the 3rd day morning. Incidentally I returned by the 4 DN Mail leaving Chennai on 30th October and it traversed the same route. Only this time it took 3 hours more leaving Chennai at 18.15 and arriving at Howrah on 1st November at 10.50 am. In the 115 year-old history of this train, this was probably the longest distance it had covered.

Great to see that despite circuitous route, the late was never abnormal which generally happens in 99% cases.

Sabya, in view of the cancellation of the Coromandel, Mail was the only connection to the South at that time and that too on a diverted route. So perhaps IR took pains to ensure that it was accorded top running priority.

Even to be honest, I felt bit troubled when Chennai Mail brought me to Howrah at 03:50AM in the morning
I had to wait at HWH for 2Hrs
:)
Agreed, this is very punctual train. I have travelled both this train and her room-mate Coromondel (as both of them share same rakes) the full distance. And both the trains reached their destination before-schedule. Even to be honest, I felt bit troubled when Chennai Mail brought me to Howrah at 03:50AM in the morning. I had to wait at HWH for 2Hrs. :)
