" SOMETIMES, IF MANY THINGS CAN GO WRONG, ALL OF THEM WILL "
Not too sure, how many of you have heard of Murphy's Law, which runs thus " Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong ". An extreme form of this OBNOXIOUS law to which I was a recent victim, may be summed up as " If several things can go wrong, all of them will ". And this is how it all transpired.
My wife and I accompanied by our 3-year old grandson came to Coimbatore on a holiday on
...

3rd May. The little boy's parents were to join us there on the 6th and return with him to their base at Udupi on the 7th night. Their tickets from Mangalore to Coimbatore and back were booked by me, the family's so-called RAIL EXPERT.
Since they wanted to be back in Udupi via Mangalore on Sunday, the 8th, I booked tickets for them for journey from CBE to MAQ by 17606 Kacheguda-Mangalore Biweekly Express leaving CBE at 2 am on 7th May and reaching MAO at 11.10 the next day. Being a weekend, tickets were not available by any other train and only 2 sleeper class berths were available in this train. So I booked them at lightning speed before they too vanished. Before booking, I pinged my friend Pramodh Kommattil, on WA, and informed him about these travel plans. He enquired if I was booking for Santragachi-Mangalore Vivek Express and I mentioned to him that my preference was for KCG-MAQ Express. Of course I did not give him the details of the dates of travel etc. (contd....)

Since all the food from the EOG was ended
( Jyg GR have food carrying area in the EOG )
Everyone was hungry
90% of the trains people got down in search of food
I saw that a vendor selling "Chawal- chole" sold all his food under 5 minutes
Even we were not able to get any food and came back to my berth
Our train was standing at pf#5
I saw food in packets were kept at pf#7
That was for ER king
Soon the Raj came and departed ahead of us with loaded food
Meanwhile we were again loco less and waiting for an E-loco
Looked like LKO had a shortage of WAP loco so we got a AJNI WAG9 loco
The Green monster was matching with our GR
We departed at 1630 and continued towards CNB
We stopped at Amausi, Harauni to Get pass to GKP-YPR Express
We crossed the Ganga bridge and Entered into CNB @ 2030
Yes
It took us 04 hours to travel 70 kms
Again i saw pcked food coming to the adjacent PF
Soon the Queen came and pantry staff started loading food
In this time we started our journey towards ANVT
After Panki
WAG9 unleased its fury as we constantly clocked above 110+
I slept soon and was waked uo by mom @ ANVT
I checked my phone it showed 0200 hrs
But mom told me that tge train arrived at 0130 hrs at ANVT
Continued This meant it took 29 Hrs for us to travel upto ANVT
The delay was of 17 Hrs
We got down from the train and since all of us were tired and didnt wanted to go out at midnight
We slept at pf#2 of ANVT
Soon i saw the SDAH Rajdhani rushing past ANVR
Tht meant it trailed GR all the way
But now we were planning about how will we now go to Katra??
But all my Grandma said was:- " ki Mata ki kripa se pahuch jayenge
Av sone do"
*** In Delhi ***
We waked up around 06 in the morning and got outside the station permises and took two taxis to Paharganj
There we rented a hotel and Just being so tired
All other people slept but i was figuring about how will we reach SVDK
As a railfan Bus was not an option anyway
I searched and fount that at that time obky one train was from NDLS that waa Shri Shkakti AC express
But we didn't have enough amount in the Debit card so that we could afford a 3A takal ticket
We were worried but then came the 04401 Anand Vihar - Katra Special to our rescue
It had SL and went to SVDK also
I booked tickets in CK quta @ 10 AM
Nw we were bit relieved that we wilk aurely be reaching Katra
Till the time of departure
We had 1 and a half day
So we went to explore delhi in these time
Not much but we went to two Places, India Gate on the eve of 27 May & Akshardham temple on the noon of 28th may
We checkedout of our hotel & Leaved for ANVT @ 1900 hrs

Feb 09 2016 (5:11PM)
Continued After the departure of BP mail
I heared another horn and this time i was confirmed that the King would depart
But when i went out
I saw a pantograph coming from behind
I waited and after seeing this one i was very amused
It was the ER queen SDAH Raj with a Duronto liveried WAP7
It came and halted on the Track right to the king
It was a splendid scene seeing King & Queen standing side by side
Which would not have been possible under any other circumstances
I was very happy
Sooner i heared a horn
And Guess what
Our GARIB RATH was given stater ahead of the Rajdhani
That guy on the door of Raj was now frustrated
My whole family was overjoyed seeing that we are going ahead of the Rajdhani
Hehe
The were also doing bit of RF ;D
At 1625 Hrs
We entered LKO
That meant we took 12 hours to travel the 301 KM disrance of BSB- LKO with an avg of 25
:(
The scene at LKO was chaotic

Continued

Feb 09 2016 (11:36AM)
We reached UTR
There were 3 tracks to the left of us
I saw that on the leftmost track that 14055 Brahmaputra Mail was standing
It departed Patna last day aroun 1330 hrs
That is it took 25 and a half hour to travel a distance of 530 KM with an average speed of 22 kph
The People of General & Sleeper coach were sitting outside under the tress and those who were sitting inside used thing like newspaper to get some fresh air
Looked like the Fans have failed
The People looked in dismay
They were saying
'Ki 1 din me to Lucknow nahi pahuche
Dilli to av door hai"
I was seeing this from our coach door
Suddenly i heared a horn and then saw a WAP7 coming slowly towards us on the track just left of us
I wondered which train it was
Continued But as the loco passes ahead
It was all amusing
It Was the ER King 12301 Howrah Rajdani
A 2A coach halted in front of our coach
A Gentlemen Came to door and asked me
'av kaha pahuche hi train?' I replied that we are 12 KM away from Lucknow
He just sayed 'uff, av Lucknow v nahi aaya
Pata nahi kab pahuchenge
'
I asked him when the HWH Raj departed MGS? He told me that it departed @ around 0200 hrs
That meant it took 13 hrs for the King to travel 271 KMs
I calculated the average speed of 12301 and found it to be 21 KPH
That was the extent to which even Rajdhani was affected due to diversion

Well now i heared a Horn
Since i was not able to see the signal
I thought that surely the Rajdhani would be departibg being on Top of the priority list
But my speculation was proven wrong
I saw froom the Rajdhani's door that 14055 was departing

That guy on the door of raj Said
' What
Is gadi ko rajdhani se pahle bhej diya
Ab bhagwan hi malik hai
And sooner
The BP mail was out of sight

This was a huges surprise as a MEX was given priority over a Raj

But you know
IR keeps surprising
An other surprise was there to come

Continued

Feb 08 2016 (10:56PM)
Continued And after a halt of 30 long minutes
We departed BSB
Soon the WDP-4D was showing its might a MPS easily doing 100 kph
We roared past small stations
I being little tired
Took a nap

When i waked up
Train was moving at Very good speed
Soon it halted @ Pratapgarh

All my family members gathered in a bay, and wrtalked about the chances of us getting to NDLS by 170p hrs, that is before the departure of 22461 Shri Shakti AC SF, which looked very bleak
We all decided to Cancel all the remaining tickets :( except the Rajdhani Return ticket
But we hoped to reach by 1900 at least
Then the train started again and skipped many station
We departed from Amethi at around 1000 hrs and hoped to reach lko by 1300
But all of sudden
We started to get looped for ICE, MEX
We halted @ Rupamau for 2 hrs
Amd from there it just started to Crawl
Oh instead of 130 mps skips which i expected
We were crawling and givving passes to MEX and InterCities

We reached UTR ( Utraihtia) @ 1500 hrs
The scene which was created there was very interesting
The things which happened @ UTR were unexpected
But it did happen

Feb 08 2016 (7:25PM)
My mind saud said - ' we are going towards BSB'
Continued

Feb 08 2016 (7:22PM)
Continued And the Garib Rath standed loco-less @ MGS
All the Allahabad bound passengers were gone and i was standing outside just waiting
At around 0230 hrs
Our new locomotive came
It was the Mighty TKD beast WDP-4D
I went to see the attachment
Soon we were given starter @ around 0300 hrs
The mighty TKD beast was in just like waking from sleep kind of mood
We were moving by the speed of 5-6 kph
I was doorplating and sooner
The train curved right
My mind saud - ' we are going towards BSB'
And we slowly went on
After stopping many times
We crossed the mighty Ganga bridge
Amazing sight itt was
We reached BSB by 0400 hrs
And again
The GR was standing
Oh
Frustrating it was

Continued

Feb 08 2016 (5:42PM)
It came with a GZB WAP4
Our seats were in G13
Continued
I waked up @ 02:00 and guess what
We were still standing @ MGS

I felt thunderstruck
I was thinking that we will atleast now would be ripping @ 130, but
It was standing

And standing that too without a loco
Yes without a loco

The GZB WAP4 was nowhere to be seen
I was worried

Was the train cancelled between MGS- ANVT

Will it return from MGS to JYG
These thought started to frighten me
But soon a TTE came with Charts into our coach and went to every Passengers which were going to ALD and asked them Politely to deboard them here @ MGS
I now knew that it was Diverted
But didn't knew by which route

Train Tag: Jaynagar - Delhi Anand Vihar Terminal Garib Rath Express/12569 added by siddharthanand82/1243573
This is the TRIP REPORT of my travel to Vaishno Devi in last year May-June.
***Planning***
The plan to go on a vacation came to mind of my Mom in January. She told this plan to all the members of my family and being a Railfan, i readily Agreed. Later on we added My Mausi, Her two children, my maternal Grandparents and my maternal cousin ( Son of my Mama), Mom's Paternal Cousins. A total of 11 people. A big group it was. In
...
more...
that year. At first, we planned for 12355 Archana Express.. But that plan was cancelled at it had low number of seats. We decided to do a break hourney ...
1.By 12569 Garib Rath to NDLS
2.By 22461 Shru Shakti to SVDK
The Plan to return was by...
1. 18102 from JAT to ASR
2. 15708 from ASR to DLI
3. 12310 from NDLS to PNBE
The ticket of 12569 was of 25th of May
And the return ticket was of 3rd of June
It was all set and i eagerly waited for the reservations to open. The ARP was of 60 days then, Not 120 days as of now. All the tickets were booked by me and all were confirmed... The moment i printed the tickets... I felt enormous Joy. I had 60 days left to the Start of the trip..
These 60 days went... And came the start of the trip...
*** Near to Start ****
On 24th May... All the Family members, My Mom's cousins and my Maternal Grandparents came from Siwan to Danapur.... All the Packing was done.
*** 25 May ****
And finally... The day came... I was very happy.. From morning to 3 in evening... The ladies were busy in cooking the travel foods, Like Littis, Namkin and many other things...
I.. Being a die hard Railfan.. Started tracking 12569 right from Start... I was happy that it was running Right time....
Everyone was ready by 05 PM... Suddenly, my mom called everyone and asked us to read the news flashing on the Channel.. It said:-
Uttar Pradesh ke Kaushambi Me Tata - Jammu Express Derail... We were worried... But we thought that The line would clear... And set off towards Patna Junction.
We reached PNBE around 6:30 PM and went straight to PF#6 where GR comes... I checked the status.. It was near BKP.. That meant it will reach around 07:30 @ PNBE.. We waited and waitied...
And the heavenly announcement was made @ 07:25 that Garib Rath is coming on PF#7... It happenedhappened due to a Memu was standing of PF#6..
*** In 12569 Garib Rath ****
It came with a GZB WAP4.. Our seats were in G13.
We boarded and settled to our seats till 07:45 PM...
But then... The Signal remaind red... I wondered why..
Even the Patna Rajdhani has departed.. It was annoying.. It standed and standed and standed..
It departed @ sharp 08:30... After an Hakt of 1 hour.. It was frustrating..
But soon it picked speed and started doing 90+
But this joy went soon.. It instead of ripping through Zamania... Halted there for 25 minutes... And then it started to crawl... Now i thought these of being the consequences of the derailment of 18101..
We reached MGS @ 23:45... And i though to sleep.. I slept @ Around 01:00..
I waked up @ 02:00 and guess what.. We were still standing @ MGS...
I felt thunderstruck.... I was thinking that we will atleast now would be ripping @ 130, but.. It was standing..
And standing that too without a loco.. Yes without a loco...
The GZB WAP4 was nowhere to be seen.. I was worried..
Was the train cancelled between MGS- ANVT...
Will it return from MGS to JYG... These thought started to frighten me...
But soon a TTE came with Charts into our coach and went to every Passengers which were going to ALD and asked them Politely to deboard them here @ MGS.. I now knew that it was Diverted. But didn't knew by which route...

I saw food in packets were kept at pf#7. That was for ER king. Soon the Raj came and departed ahead of us with loaded food. Meanwhile we were again loco less and waiting for an E-loco.. Looked like LKO had a shortage of WAP loco so we got a AJNI WAG9 loco.. The Green monster was matching with our GR. We departed at 1630 and continued towards CNB. We stopped at Amausi, Harauni to Get pass to GKP-YPR Express. We crossed the Ganga bridge and Entered into CNB @ 2030.. Yes.. It took us 04 hours to travel 70 kms.. Again i saw pcked food coming to the adjacent PF.. Soon the Queen came and pantry staff started loading food. In this time we started our journey towards ANVT.. After Panki.. WAG9 unleased its fury as we constantly clocked above 110+ .. I slept soon and was waked uo by mom @ ANVT.. I checked my phone it showed 0200 hrs.. But mom told me that tge train arrived at 0130 hrs at ANVT..
This meant it took 29 Hrs for us to travel upto ANVT. The delay was of 17 Hrs.. We got down from the train and since all of us were tired and didnt wanted to go out at midnight.. We slept at pf#2 of ANVT.. Soon i saw the SDAH Rajdhani rushing past ANVR... Tht meant it trailed GR all the way... But now we were planning about how will we now go to Katra??.
But all my Grandma said was:- " ki Mata ki kripa se pahuch jayenge.. Av sone do"
*** In Delhi ***
We waked up around 06 in the morning and got outside the station permises and took two taxis to Paharganj. There we rented a hotel and Just being so tired.. All other people slept but i was figuring about how will we reach SVDK.. As a railfan Bus was not an option anyway.. I searched and fount that at that time obky one train was from NDLS that waa Shri Shkakti AC express.. But we didn't have enough amount in the Debit card so that we could afford a 3A takal ticket. We were worried but then came the 04401 Anand Vihar - Katra Special to our rescue.. It had SL and went to SVDK also.. I booked tickets in CK quta @ 10 AM.. Nw we were bit relieved that we wilk aurely be reaching Katra. Till the time of departure.. We had 1 and a half day. So we went to explore delhi in these time.. Not much but we went to two Places, India Gate on the eve of 27 May & Akshardham temple on the noon of 28th may. We checkedout of our hotel & Leaved for ANVT @ 1900 hrs.
We reached ANVT @ 2050 hrs and rushed for PF #2 for the special.
We all were worried about the train as the spls of bihar are nowhere punctual.
We settled to our seats and The train depared @ 2100 hrs. The loco was TKD WDP-4B. We started and soon were having parallel run with the Mighty 12556 Gorakhdham SF.. Our train competed with GD for 1 minute but 04401 slowed and BGKT WDP4 showed its might...
We entered GZB after overtaking an EMU.
After GZB... The beast was on free run in GZB- MTC sectio. And ripped the tracks @ MPS.... We reached before time @ MTC, MOZ and SRE.
At Saharanpur. We Overtook 13049 HWH - ASR Exp and xinged with 6 DN ASR mail.
Again we were ripping tracks.. I slept and waked up after a jerk @ JRC.. The spl was running bang on time... It just was amazing to see a Special doing such good run.. We halted @ SMBX for 30 minutes for crossing some train. We reached JAT delayed by 30 minutes and departed soon... He scenery after JAT cannot be explained... Just Amazing and beautiful it was... Every body ha their cameras/ mobiles at windows to capture these beauties of nature... We were halted somewhere for 30 minutes ...reached UHP with 1 hour of delay. The station was very clean and very calm... The views after UHP were even more scenic and beautiful. When we entered SVDK.... We got the first glimpse of Trikuta Mountains and every one shouted - " JAI MATA DI"... The station was super clean. We exited the station and was feeling Devoted.. The view of the Trek Path and the mountain was beautiful....
We booked a room in Katra and just relieved ourselves. We went to Yatra parchi counter @ 1630 hrs and then reached Banganga Check post @ 1700 hrs.. We continued for our trek and did darshans @ around 0200 hrs and came down back to Banganga next day 1100 hrs.. We booked a hotel and just slept as we were very tired.. Next day i and my Mama went in search of a Cyber cafe to book the tickets.. We found one cafe near the old bus stand and i booked the tickets in 12414 Pooja SF express

जासं, लखनऊ : देश की पहली मॉडल ट्रेन महामना एक्सप्रेस से नल की टोटियां चोरी करने और उसमें गंदगी फैलाने पर देश भर के यात्री नाराज हैं। रेलमंत्री के ट्विटर पर यह यात्री अपना आक्रोश जता रहे हैं, साथ ही इसके लिए रासुका लगाने की मांग कर रहे हैं। वहीं रविवार देर शाम रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने भी ट्विटर पर महामना एक्सप्रेस में अव्यवस्था पर नाराजगी जताते हुए कहा कि ऐसे लोग आम यात्री के लिए असुविधा बढ़ा रहे हैं। वह राष्ट्रीय संपत्ति को नुकसान भी पहुंचा रहे हैं। 122 जनवरी को वाराणसी से नई दिल्ली के बीच शुरू हुई महामना एक्सप्रेस के शौचालय और गेट के पास लगे वॉश बेसिन में महंगी टोटियां लगी हुई हैं। चोरों ने करीब 11

टोटियां चुरा ली है। वॉश बेसिन को पान और गुटखा की पीक से रंग दिया गया। उसमें लगे कूड़ेदान को भी खराब कर दिया है। महामना एक्सप्रेस को बदहाल करने की फोटो यात्रियों ने रेलमंत्री को भेजी है। यात्री अभिषेक सिंह ने ट्विट पर कहा है कि लोग अपनी सुविधाओं का ख्याल रखते हैं दूसरों का नहीं। एक यात्री ने कहा है कि चोरों को गिरफ्तार कर उनसे आठ बोगियों में गंदगी फैलाने का जुर्माना वसूला जाए।
