Shame on ER for snatching ECR train
KOLKATA: DRM HWH(DR. R. BADRINARAYAN) on a special meeting has raised the issue regarding parmanent diversion of 12019/20. The prestigious and only Shatabdi express of Eastern Railway is in danger passing over flames of Jharia coal fields near Dhanbad of Jharkhand. Every time the train snails through the region, the control room has a horror film being played.
DRM has asked the board to divert its route after Asansol via Joychandi Pahar-Purulia-Ranchi section falling under Adra and Ranchi division, increasing the mean speed and reducing time. He said this will be a equilibrium process as the train would miss few important stations but on the other side cherish many demands of the diverted region. We need to take a quick step
rather than foolish usual inspections.

Got these images from the web. If the pictures are accurate then I must say the situation is pretty frightening and alarming. The whole area looks like a living hell and idea of operating trains over this area is insane.

OMG!! What's this and are the tracks nearby to this area? okay "danger passing over flames of Jharia coal fields near Dhanbad of Jharkhand. Every time the train snails through the region, the control room has a horror film being played". Where is this located in map and why only about the Shatabdi?

These are pictures of OCP dumpground where the rocks (not the coal which is extracted) which are not usable are dumped.
Often they are fire-ridden, they are dumped off...

KOLKATA: Darjeeling Mail -the most prestigious train that connects Kolkata to north Bengal -is all set to follow a different route soon.
Instead of crossing the Vivekananda Bridge and passing Burdwan and Bolpur, the train will move through Barrackpore, Krishnagore and Murshidabad to Malda.This will not only shorten the distance between Sealdah and New Jalpaiguri and bring down travel time, the move will also decongest the busy stretch between Burdwan and Malda.
"The Murshidabad-Azimgunj link is expected to be commissioned by the end of December, 2017. There were problems with land acquisition but
we have received tremendous help from the state government.Once this happens, we plan to run trains like Darjeeling Mail through Murshidabad.These trains will then pass through Azimgunj towards Malda, from where they will take the existing route to New Jalpaiguri," Eastern Railway (ER) general manager Ghanshyam Singh told TOI.
ER is yet to calculate how much time will be saved along the new route. Along the exis ting route, the distance between Sealdah and New Jalpaiguri is nearly 573 km. According to officials, the train's path will be shortened by nearly 21km once it passes through Murshidabad. According to Singh, travel time should come down by at least 30 minutes.
"However, that is not the most important thing. The existing route is extremely congested and we want to reduce the load. Secondly , we want people from Murshidabad and surrounding areas to benefit. Now, with no rail connectivity to Malda, they have to travel all the way to Sealdah if they wish to catch a train to north Bengal. Once this route is opened, they can directly travel to north Bengal and the northeastern states. This will also open up an alternate route to north Bengal," the GM added.
According to him, ER has embarked on a path of capacity enhancement. In 2016-17, tracks of 80 km length have been doubled and third lines will be commissioned along 27 km. An additional 100 km is approaching readiness. "We have also commissioned 194 km of electrification this year. This will further speed up operations and reduce diesel consumption. From August 2016 to February 2017, we have already saved Rs 25 crore," Singh added.

A new train should be provided in that route instead of re-routing such a popular service. Re-routing a train like DM is never a wise decision.

May be there a too many trains, but they too are not enough to cater the rush. Now withdrawing such a popular train from this route would be a very bad decision.
