Please note that a TSR of 50 KMPH is in place on the Down slow line. This is the only reason for such quick acceleration by 12314 & overtake 12340 "with too much ease". If both the tracks were under same conditions (which normally is), then 12340 would have given 12314 a run for its money. I have experienced this for a number of times on board 12340. With a simultaneous departure from DGR, 12340 had raced parallel for almost up to Rajbandh (RBH) after which the 110+ KMPH came into factor.
Twice I had experienced this with 12302 also. If 12314 & 12302 runs back to back & on time, then often you will see 12302 slow down or stop at
DGR due to the departure of 12314 just ahead.

There is another RF in the picture with the red bag, who was on chatting with me over phone. He too had got down from 13012 Intercity at KAN. He is none other than Milan Chatterjee.

hoooooooh!!!!! Reached Dhanbad sharp at 11:01 a.m. (10 minutes early)
Anyhow i just managed to catch this train which was 1 minute early at Durgapur station.
This train is one of the most punctual trains of India...... i travelled in this train several times and i never saw it getting late more then 20 minutes.

This train is best suited for those who want to catch their jobs and for students.
For passengers, moving for north of Howrah interchanging from trains like Gitanjali, Howrah Mail, Azad Hind, Samarsata, etc. this is the best suited train and Siuri-Howrah Hool Epress (as the second option)

Just for information to all members - 22387/8 Black Diamond SF express is an ECR train & not ER. ECR has recently asked Railway Board for LHB coaches for this train. They expect to receive this rake shortly. If LHB fied this train will be the first Intercity service to have LHB rake in the eastern zone. The only drawback will be - this train is always overcrowded & if there is no middle doors then there will be chaotic scenes at intermediate staions. Hope the LHB ICE rakes are provided with the middle doors for the convenience of the passengers.

I agree. One big glaring typing error by ER. It should actually be 13017/13018 Ganadevta Express.

I may be wrong here, but I think this is one of the ways for faster clearance of sections. At least this is what IR had proposed for the HWH-DLI route. That is why Kanchanjunga may have been provided with E-loco for such short distance. Corrections are welcome.
