रांची : रांची और हटिया रेलवे स्टेशन पर अॉटोमेटिक आरक्षण चार्ट डिसप्ले बोर्ड लगा दिया गया है. इसके लिए एलइडी टीवी सेट लगाया गया है. उसी को पीआरएस सिस्टम से जोड़ा गया है.

इस डिस्पले बोर्ड में ट्रेन खुलने के 30 मिनट पहले से चार्ट का डिसप्ले शुरू हो जायेगा. फिलहाल, इसका परीक्षण किया जा रहा है, जो जल्द पूरा हो जायेगा. उसके बाद से इसका विधिवत उदघाटन किया जायेगा. दूसरे फेज में जल्द ही टीटीई के हाथों में एक डिवाइस दिया जायेगा, जिससे वह आरक्षण चार्ट का मिलान
कर सकेंगे.

Ranchi is a smaller station than Patna but the crowd management and amenities is much better at Ranchi in my opinion. Patna station is huge but unfortunately is not clean and portrays a rural feel actually. Having said that Patna station handles much much larger volume of traffic each day. Even Tata and Dhanbad have bigger traffic volume than Ranchi /HTE. Ranchi will soon become a World class station with Private partnership.

The Ranchi - Lohardaga - Tori line will see commercial / passenger operations from March. Per this article minor works at 2-3 locations are left which will be completed prior to the operations. At present 3 Pairs of passenger trains shuttle between Ranchi and Lohardaga. Out of which, 1 pair will operate upto Tori. The total running schedule for that shuttle is 2Hrs and 20 mins (Currently Ranchi - Lohardaga route is covered in 1hr and 30 mins). The new route is clear for speeds upto 86KMPH.
Which means express trains will cover the entire stretch in 1:30 - 1:45 hrs max ..This is a major time gain from the current 4-6 Hrs for most trains via the circuitous Muri route.

लोहरदगा और आसपास के इलाके वालों के लिए दिल्ली अब अधिक दूरी नहीं होगी. दिल्ली तक के सफर में करीब चार-पांच घंटे की कटौती होगी. दक्षिण पूर्व रेलवे के जीएम एस एन अग्रवाल ने गुरुवार को इस बाबत लोहरदगा में जानकारी दी.
लोहरदगा टोरी रेलवे लाइन विस्तारीकरण कार्य का गुरुवार को एस एन अग्रवाल ने जायजा लिया. टोरी विजिट के दौरान जीएम लोहरदगा रेलवे स्टेशन में भी रुके. सिंगल लाइन में ट्रेन परिचालन की पूरी जानकारी लेते हुए कई सलाह दिए. साथ ही टिकट कांउटर में यात्री सुविधाओं का भी जायजा लिया.

I think the article was talking from the perspective of Lohardaga folks who had to come to Ranchi to catch trains for New Delhi. For them, surely there will be over 4 hrs of time saving. Even for trains like Hatia- Jammu Tawi via Delhi, it would probably reduce it time by 3+ Hrs. Trains like Garib Rath might save upto 2.5 Hrs.

Just wondering why are the Per Km cost for the 2 sections so drastically different?
Bondamunda - Hatia : INR 1.01 Cr/Km
Adityapur - Kharagpur : INR 0.61 Cr/Km
Is it because of the Terrain difference or land acquisition rate?

According to The Railway Board Of India
हावड़ा-धनबाद Double Decker Express का Patronage अच्छा नहीं होने की वजह से इसे सालों से बेकार खड़ा रखा गया है,
अगर इस ट्रेन का विस्तार Patna Junction तक कर दिया जाए तो इसका Patronage भी अच्छा हो जाएगा, Patna को एक Double Decker भी मिल जाएगा और ये ट्रेन फिर से पटरी पर वापस लौट आएगी जिसमें GAYA,DHN,ASN का भी फायदा होगा 😊
least Bii-Weekly तो होना ही चाहिए शुरुआती दौर में !
Kindly Give Your suggestion
Thanks 😊

For trials they can run on Ranchi - BKSC - DHN - HWH section on reverse timings of Shatabdi. Might get good patronage from Ranchi and Bokaro. Only trouble now is that now many flights on Ranchi - Kolkata route are getting added. Air Asia will add 2 daily from March.

They should try DD in heavy density sub-urban sections .. I odnt know if DD can be EMU'd .. They can use it as local trains .. Only trouble will be how to quickly discharge passengers from the upper levels.

I don't think its suitable for suburban routes as there are only 2 gates while travellers have to get in and out in 1-2mins DD should be considered only for routes where is one way movement and max end to end travel

एडीआरएमको जल्दी पहुंचाने के चक्कर में गुरुवार को जिस ट्रेन को प्लेटफॉर्म पर जाना था,उस ट्रेन को हटिया यार्ड भेज दिया,वहीं जिस ट्रेन को यार्ड में भेजना था,वह रांची स्टेशन पर ही खड़ी रह गई। डीआरएम एसके अग्रवाल ने खुद लापरवाही पकड़ी और त्वरित कार्रवाई करते हुए रांची और हटिया स्टेशन के सहायक स्टेशन मास्टर अरुण कुजूर और चंदन कुमार सिंह को सस्पेंड कर दिया। एक दूसरे मामले में मरी के स्टेशन मास्टर को भी सस्पेंड कर दिया।
रांची रेलवे स्टेशन के प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर दो पर हावड़ा-हटिया एक्सप्रेस(क्रियायोग एक्सप्रेस)खड़ी थी और तीन
नंबर प्लेटफॉर्म पर भागलपुर-रांची एक्सप्रेस खड़ी थी। दोनों ट्रेनों को हटिया जाना था। इसमें हावड़ा-हटिया ट्रेन को हटिया स्टेशन के प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर एक पर जाना था,वहीं भागलपुर-रांची ट्रेन को हटिया यार्ड में। रांची स्टेशन से पहले भागलपुर-रांची ट्रेन रवाना होनी थी,इसलिए ट्रैक को हटिया यार्ड के लिए सेट कर दिया गया था,लेकिन स्टेशन मास्टर ने हावड़ा-हटिया एक्सप्रेस को सिग्नल देकर पहले रवाना कर दिया। यह ट्रेन हटिया स्टेशन प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर एक की जगह हटिया यार्ड में चली गई। जब ट्रेन यार्ड में पहुंची,तो कंट्रोल को याद आया कि बड़ी गलती हो गई। उसके बाद उस ट्रेन को बैक कर प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर एक पर लाया गया,क्योंकि इस ट्रेन में एडीआरएम विजय कुमार भी थे। इसके बाद भागलपुर-रांची ट्रेन को रवाना किया गया। जब ट्रेन रांची स्टेशन का होम सिग्नल पार कर गई,तब स्टेशन मास्टर ने ट्रेन को वापस कर रांची स्टेशन लाया।
^औचक निरीक्षण के दौरान ट्रेन ऑपरेशन में ऑन स्पॉट गड़बड़ी पकड़ी गई। इसके लिए जिम्म्ेवार रांची और हटिया के सहायक स्टेशन मास्कर काे सस्पेंड कर दिया गया है। मुरी के स्टेशन मांस्टर को दूसरे मामले में सस्पेंड िकया गया है।-एके अग्रवाल,डीआरएम,रांची
डीआरएम एसके अग्रवाल ने बताया है कि केंद्रीय मंत्री और मुख्यमंत्री के लिए स्टेशन पर ट्रेनों का प्लेटफॉर्म बदला जाएगा। इसके अलावा कोई इमरजेंसी आने पर ही प्लेटफॉर्म बदला जाएगा। चाहे डीआरएम ही ट्रेन में क्यों रहे हों,उनके लिए भी प्लेटफॉर्म नहीं बदला जाएगा। उन्होंने कहा कि इसके लिए विभागीय आदेश जारी किया जाएगा। उन्होंने यह बात इसलिए बतायी,क्योंकि जिस दिन वे रांची डिविजन का पदभार संभालने आए था,उस दिन उनके लिए भी शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस को तीन नंबर प्लेटफॉर्म से बदलकर प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर एक पर लाया गया था। डीआरएम को जब इसकी जानकारी मिली,तो उन्होंने अधिकारियों को चेतावनी देकर छोड़ा था।
डीआरएम एसके अग्रवाल गुरुवार सुबह अकेले हटिया स्टेशन पहुंचे। उसी समय हटिया यार्ड से हावड़ा-हटिया को प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर एक पर लाते हुए देखा। पूछताछ की,तो सहायक स्टेशन मास्टर परेशान हो गए। पूरा माजरा डीआरएम की समझ में गया और उन्होंने रांची हटिया के सहायक स्टेशन मास्टर को ऑन स्पॉट सस्पेंड कर दिया। दूसरी ओर मुरी के सहायक स्टेशन मास्टर एम खान को भी सस्पेंड कर दिया,क्याेंकि उनके खिलाफ इन्क्वायरी सेटअप की गई थी,जिसमें वे दोषी पाए गए।

There are many trains having such kind of repeated reversals.
For example, 12880/79,22865/66,18473/74,18507/08 etc.
These LRs are not a very big deal to worry about, a train runs to fulfill the demands of passengers and in this case, Patna does not have any good connection to Hyderabad/Secunderabad and the route itself is relatively new and unpopular, that's why I chose this unique route for my train.

The location of Ranchi also is a major hurdle in this. Ranchi is located on a much higher elevation than its neighboring areas making it difficult during early years to develop trunk lines through it. Most of the other Major cities / capitals lie on trunk routes whereas Ranchi lines are targeting only the local population. However with recent developments atleast we are discovering new connections and routes. Tori and Barkakana routes will throw open lots of better options for Ranchi and surrounding areas. Just wait for 3-4 more years.

Tickets of worth Rs 21.5 Lacs returned to passengers of RNC Raj alone so far, just for 1 cancelled day. Such a major loss for the Railways. No wonder more and more flights are getting added to the lucrative Ranchi - Delhi sector .. Already there are 8 daily flights and 2-3 more will start from Feb 2017 (1 each by Indigo, Go Air and Air Asia). The prices of these flights will get even more competitive and hence more people will get pulled towards them.
