Please watch out for the correct train number from the board or listen to announcements very carefully if you are boardign this train at Chennai Central- since 12296 from Patna often reaches late there is always chance that both the up and down trains meet up at chennai Central and its very difficult to make out which side its heading as both have loco reversals
12296 is Bangalore bound(Via Katpadi, jolarpettai) and 12295 is Patna bound(Via Vijayawada, Nagpur, Itarsi, Jabalpur) Express

#MSTS is easier than #Railworks series. mostly for basic route making, act creation, pple prefer #MSTS always.
#Railworks, #Trainz aren't so easy when it comes to activity creation n route making.

Now this is called frustration.
N neither I have blamed.
I gave u a simple idea on seeing ur desperate for a train to stop.
A very simple method, which eventually worked out for ppl who were requesting, crying, demanding, etc for JANMABHOOMI EXP to stop at Duvvada n well, it finally got a stop.
has few trains skipping already n almost half of rail fans n passenger knows who's to blame, so that's no issue here.
The only thing bbs gets surprised all the time, is how vskp loads up faster than any other place in its own zone.
Buddy, lemme tel u a fact, ecor is a total freight zone. Hardly it cares for passenger trains exceptional for few important express n premier class trains.
Vskp only needs bit attention, just like a son or daughter needs bit love from a step mom or a mom.
Regarding jjkr halt, the method is given above n if u still wanna argue further, well, I have nothing to say.

Really? Do you want me to fall down n laugh at u? I don't bother doing that.
Loco change hardly takes 15 mins, dear man, not damn 1 hour. Dunno who implanted this stupidest theory, give that a person a biryani or maach from me n many Indian rail fans.
If u know the process n speak like this, I
would pity n if u don't know I would encourage u to learn.
This train had Loco reversal in 1977 too n used to take even less time to cover the distance. This isn't coromandel of today, n if I want more history, browse the blogs n then speak the real facts.

Vskp has trains which is skipping, don't tell those facts to me, I have been seeing them since decade n m freaking bored.
Even we voted to bring a few inside, but in the end, odds were against us.
So, I

Then why are you supporting members who are saying for taking back Hirakund??
I dont think that any train skipping Vizag, and Coromandal type important train takes LR also there,
Peoples should make effort to come upto Duvvada, Trains will not go to their home for pick up.

The once prestigious Super Fast ‘Coromandel Express’ has been literally reduced to a ‘fast passenger’ in Odisha. This was the feeling of a group of passengers who took the ‘prestigious train’ from Visakhapatnam to Kharagpur last week.
Coromandel Express stops at seven stations – Brahmapur, Khurda Road junction, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack junction, Jajpur Keonjhar Road, Bhadrak and Balasore – in Odisha, but it has only one halt in the jurisdiction of ECoR in Andhra Pradesh - Visakhapatnam junction.

Uh, Guys, who DISAGREED for Coro's stop is due to ECOR?
JJKR is obviously due to ECOR/SER n politician, but Balasore n Bhadrak were in SER days it self.
Even SER can b blamed here as well n a bit to ECOR-SCR's pathetic discussion which even more slowed down with slack n slot, or else this train would have done even a good job since its slot change i.e after 2004's
of the halts like BAM, CTC, Bhadrak n Balasore turned up even before ECOR was born.
Bhadrak n BAM, can b ignored, but Balasore is the missile center is bit necessary for pple traveling. JJKR not at all necessary for this, but due to idiotic political pressure, the train had finally stopped.
Anyways, now nothing will help.
Once scarred, will remain like this forever.
The only thing most of the rail fans pray n hope tat this train doesn't meet the fate of Udyan Abha Toofan Express in near future.

Agree in totally with you Raam.
Balasore is the powerhouse of India and should be retained to cater the Higher officials of ISRO.
However Bhadrack, JJKR and TDP was given purely on political basis and should be immediately removed while KUR should be converted toa Tech halt. BAM can also be removed as it has stops in Mail.
KGP,BLS,CTC,BBS,VSKP,RJY,BZA should be the Stops for
this "so called" prestigious trains.
For those stops which will be removed, MAS Mail should be given Extra berths pertaining to this stops.

If TIG-RGDA is double, but still i think the timings of most of the trains remain what it was for so many years. Earlier the times were formulated keeping in mind the single line section.But evn after doubling, there seems to be no speeding up of train timings.

The Eastern Railway has temporarily suspended the Dhanbad-Howrah AC Double-decker Express (both Up and Down) from January 26 to March 1 due to heavy losses because of low occupancy rate, triggering fears among passengers that the train will be withdrawn for good.The train has been temporarily suspended due to huge losses incurred by the railways.
Less than 70 passengers take the train, which has a seating capacity of 640.
The losses, thereby, come to around Rs 11 lakh every day, sources said.
train has been temporarily suspended due to huge losses incurred by the railways. But there has been no talks of permanently withdrawing the train as of now," chief public relations officer of Indian Railways (eastern zone) R.N. Mahapatra told The Telegraph.

Registration Number : MORLY/E/2014/14218
Name Of Complainant : S V Iyer
Date of Receipt : 16 Dec 2014
Received by : Ministry of Railways, ( Railway Board)
Forwarded to : OPERATING
Grievance Description : The General Manager, Central Railways, Mumbai Division. Sir, I regret to bring to your notice the poor plight of the passengers on board 22109 LTT NZM AC Express departing LTT today viz. 16.12.2014. For one the rake is not at all cleaned and maintained by LTT. The rake is stinking and is fully dirty from outside. I am given to understand is the lesser time available for maintenance because of its Rake Sharing with 02111/12 LTT Lucknow AC special that arrived LTT at around 04:00 hours this morning. I am at a loss to know why is CR intent upon destroying its one of the finest trains of its fleet by giving impractical RSAs and running it late? Earlier you had run this train to depart on Fridays from LTT and arriving back to LTT on Sundays which was the best and 22109 was able to depart on time on almost all runs with a properly cleaned and well maintained rake. Besides, it is also clear that CR is not interested to run this train anymore and it is being treated as a scrap despite its 100% patronage in both directions. This because of improper loco allotments and also your failure to take up this issue with Railway Board for either increase in frequency or upgrading it to Rajdhani or to accord fast sanction of 130 MPS to this train so that this train maintains its aggressive Time Table in both directions. The WORST part is when complaints are made for punctuality of this train, you just shift the blame on others saying that it runs minimal delay in CR and delayed in other zones as if you are not interested. It becomes your duty, your responsibility to get the satisfactory replies rather than shaking them off. Then why was so much hype created by you that a Rajdhani like SuperFast service with Rajdhani like speed and comfort will be introduced by CR. Please learn from WR, ER as to how they maintain rapport with enroute controlling stations to ensure that their top A category trains reach their destination on time. One more request is to please maintain the uniform Rajdhani livery of this train. Half of its coaches are presently running with 12223/24 LTT ERS Duronto which I am sure can be easily swapped. I rest my case with the hope that I will get a proper reply from your side and hope that we passengers can expect a clean rake n Rajdhani like comfort in the near future. Thanks and Regard, Yours Truly S V Iyer
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 21 Jan 2015
Details : Concerned staff has been instructed to keep external as well as internal parts of the trains properly, so that complaints can be avoided. Further, efforts are being made to swap the coaches of different colour scheme for running in Train No. 22109 and 12223, but it is not possible to maintain sanctity of rakes due to non-availability of adequate spare coaches and operational constraints. All efforts are being taken for running trains punctually. Application has been submitted to CRS clearance in North East Circle, for train no. 22109/22110 efforts are being made to get CRS sanction. As and when the approval will get, sanction will be communicated to the concerned authorities.
