I doubt if Hajipur / Sonepur can sustain a full AC Train. For GS Coaches, for sure there would be heavy demand from such places.

We must watch close to the travel dates as this is a special train and announced recently ..obviously people will make only last minute reservations if at all. I would wait until the Run days actually to see the demand. I am sure it will fill about 70% of the seats on an avg.

U may start but not via MGS-ALD-CNB Run via LKO/LJN via LKO plz
1 Humsafar should be started between PNBE and NDLS, looking at the success and occupancy of Patna Rajdhani, no one could deny that It would become one the most successful train of this category as well as of this route. What's your take?

Biggest LOL...PNBE Rajdhani gets overtaken by Ranchi Garib Rath, huh!! Are you from this world or somewhere else? RNC Rajdhani enjoys that much priority that it gets overtaken by a Normal SuperFast train like Shivganga...:D Accept the truth, no benefit of living in a denial mode.

Firstly I am a resident of Jharkhand.. and I would love if Jharkhand gets some patronage in terms of railways..
So i dont know where you get the jealousy out of..
Routes are scenic before BKSC.. and beyond that it is nothing out of the ordinary..
I have lived in Jharkhand all my life.. And i love jharkhand a lot..
i am not deluded that i cant see whats infront of me.. Rnc raj is the lowest priority raj on the route like it or not..
The most important railway stations in jharkhand are dhn and tata.. because they 'happen' to lie on hwh ndls and hwh cstm routes respectively.. doesnt it tell u how terribly jharkhand has been neglected by the railways?
In terms of no. Of trains, rnc is 4th after dhn tata and bksc.. and maybe even gmo..
Sir pnbe ranks 6th in terms of all train arrivals in India.. patna aur ranchi ki koi tulna hi nhi h..
Unki ek SF 12393 runs with punctuality.. ya at the most 1hr 2hr delay.. humari SJ aur SK k saath kya hota h kabhi dekha h aapne?
SJ to last time time pe kab chali thi ye yaad nhi h mujhko..
Jharkhand ki andekhi hui h railways mein.. aap maanein ya na maanein.. aur ye jealousy ya competition ki nhi balki sharm ki baat h..

Seriously ? More than 500 seats empty in all rides .This is almost empty because they have removed the total number of coaches due to less booking, there are total 613 seats RNC-LKO quota. Now, you can see how many seats are booked.

My bad, I was replying for Dharti Aba HTE-ERS AC Express actually...You are right, this particular route cannot support a full rake of AC Coaches. Probably it was just done to utilize the idle rake of Dharti Aba Exp. Wonder what's the situation with the Habibganj special.

Ranchi to kharagpur

1. 18628 ranchi howrah intercity via DHN, ASN + Any train from howrah
2. Hatia Kharagpur passenger via PRR, ADRA

Ranchi to Muri is very beautiful, so both trains will take that route anyways. Beyond that there is nothing out of the ordinary. Bokaro - Dhanbad section is very dull and and very less vegetation. However if you like rustic/mines then you may like that section too.

:O, Seems some confusion happened.
Pls. stop misquoting me. Where have I said so?
My only comment was about GS Trains and not much demand for a fully unreserved train as unlike Bihar, Jharkhand does not supply low skilled laborers in high volumes to the southern states.
Pls. read my post and try to understand it.

I think you need to work on your understanding of plain English. I have never said so. I only said that Jharkhand generally has low demand of Unreserved seats to south destinations unlike Bihar. The proof is in the no. of GS Coaches in the train.

Just one station that too a village one. More than likely this is to test the operations. After Sidhwar, towards Ranchi, the high gradient ghat section starts. There are 3 major and 5 minor tunnels in the route. Will be a delight for Rail Travelers. This rail route will become the famous Patratu Valley Road of SER.

जमशेदपुर : मुंबई-टाटानगर अंत्योदय एक्सप्रेस दर्जनों यात्रियों को लेकर रविवार को पहली बार टाटानगर पहुंची. ट्रेन के लगभग सभी काेच खाली थे. ट्रेन का स्वागत के लिए टाटानगर के स्टेशन प्रबंधक ओपी शर्मा, आरपीएफ प्रभारी एमके सिंह सहित कई पदाधिकारी प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर चार पर पहले से मौजूद थे. रेल अधिकारियों ने ट्रेन से टाटानगर आने वाले यात्रियों का स्वागत किया. यात्रियों के उतरने के बाद आरपीएफ ने सभी कोच की जांच की.

इसके बाद ट्रेन को टाटानगर के लाइन नंबर सात में कड़ी सुरक्षा के बीच खड़ी की गयी. टाटानगर
स्टेशन प्रबंधक ओपी शर्मा ने बताया कि शनिवार को मुंबई स्टेशन पर रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभाकर प्रभु ने हरी झंडी दिखाकर ट्रेन को रवाना किया था. ट्रेन चलाने की घोषणा रेल बजट में हुई थी. श्री शर्मा ने बताया कि अंत्योदय सुपरफास्ट एक्सप्रेस एलटीटी (मुंबई) से टाटानगर के लिए प्रत्येक मंगलवार और शनिवार को तथा टाटानगर से लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनल (मुंबई) के लिए प्रत्येक रविवार और गुरुवार को खुलेगी . ट्रेन कुल 11 स्टेशनों पर रुकेगी.ट्रेन टाटा से चलकर चक्रधरपुर, राउरकेला, झारसुगुड़ा, रायगढ़, बिलासपुर, रायपुर, नागपुर, दुर्ग, भुसावल होते हुए लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनल पहुंचेगी. ट्रेन के कोच में वाटर प्यूरीफायर सिस्टम, लैपटॉप, मोबाइल चार्जिंग प्वाइंट की सुविधा दी गयी है. अग्निशमन जैसी अन्य सुविधा भी है.

Ranchi / Dhanbad may not help too as there is low demand for unreserved seats. AC Trains are required for Ranchi / Dhanbad due to premium category requirement.

Karte hain, but there is not enough demand for a Full Rake of Unreserved coaches unlike Bihar. Bihar supplies a lots of migrant / seasonal labourers to western states including Mumbai, hence there is year around demand of GS in all trains. Same situation is not present in Jharkhand.
