I am a traveller of mostly NF Rail, Eastern Rail and SE Rail. This is for the first time I got into a SR train when I travelled from MAS to KPD by Sleeper Class. The train is maintained very well and it is clean. I wish other zones also learn to do the same. The speed and pickup I felt were also very high.

Rakes are maintained by CD/BBQ & hence train has comparatively better coaches. Incidentally both MAS - ALLP SF & MAS - TVC SF Mail too maintained by the same CD.

The Farakka stoppage has been newly added. Kamrup already stops there. So, this stoppage should be removed.

Recently I travelled by this train on 30th September from KPD to KYQ (Got down at NBQ) in 3AC. The train was Three Hours late. The train is not maintained properly. It is very dirty. The coach was converted from 2AC to 3AC. The food was good but the Pantry Car had electrical problem as it lost electric supply and power was restored at RU. The train halted for a very long time at few stations before just entering RU. I suspect an Engine fault. Three trains were allowed to overtake mine.
If anyone of you have travelled by this train on the above date and have heard something regarding the stopping of the train before RU, please let me know.

It would have been a wastage of time.
Engine change is done in KGP.
The train cuts SE rail from Andul and joins ER at Dankuni, which is a saving of a lot of time.
This should be the regular route for all other trains like GHY SBC Express, etc.

मैंने दस दिन पहले इस ट्रेन से सफर किया।
इस ट्रेन का नाम बंगाल दर्शन हाना चाहिए क्‍यों कि इसे बिना किसी कारण के सिउड़ी दुर्गाापुर असानसोल के रास्‍ते ले जाया जाता है। सीधे हावड़ा के रास्‍ते ले जाया जाता तो बहुत कम समय लगता। इस ट्रेन से बहुत सारे लोग अपनी चिकित्‍सा के लिए जाते हैं। शीघ्र ही इस ट्रेन के मार्ग को परिवर्तित करने की अवश्‍यक्‍ता है। साथ ही इसे सुपरफास्‍ट बनाना चाहिए।

This train should be converted into superfast with an AC 2 tier cum AC 3 tier or with an AC 3 tier coach added.
The following stoppages can be removed: NNA, MNE, MOG, SPP, MNO, DES, SEE, BTT.
Stoppage durations should be reduced at RNY, NBQ, NOQ, NCB, DQG, KNE, KIR, BJU, CPR, SV, GKP, BE and MB.
The train should be extended upto

Dibrugargh and if the deperature time is fixed at 06:45 and assuming 11Hr 5mins DBRG GHY travel time, the train can leave GHY at 18:00. Since, the train gets converted to Superfast, the timings would closely come to the present one by the time the train reaches Hajipur. The travel time would reduce Hajipur onwards as the train is converted to superfast.
In the North the train should be extended upto Udhampur also.
If any Rail Ministry official is reading this, he should take note of my suggestion. Comments are also expected from other readers and forum members.
Jai Hind.

Joydeep Ji,
Thanks for your sugession.
The sugession I have given is for the present rail network in Assam. However, after completion of RNY MZS Gauge conversion, I would not suggest the diversion. Passengers from the North Bank could catch the train from RNY or DBRG (DBRG will be connected after completion of Bogibeel Bridge). An early morning passenger train should provided between NLP& DBRG and an intercity between DBRG and RNY/DBB via North Bank of Brahmaputra. The passenger train would be very beneficial for the local passengers also and the intercity would

not only help the passengers of this train, but, also, other long distance trains and other local passengers.
Similar arrengements can be made for reverse journey.
Also, this train (15651&15652 Lohit Exp. not Amarnath Exp.) should be provided atleast thrice a week.
Waiting for your and others reply and sugessions.
Tushar Mukherjee.

Many old memories refreshed with just the name of this train. We used to travel in this train from Jammu to Hajipur during our childhood days around 1995-98. As those days my father was in Army and he was posted to Akhnoor. we used to board this train at the yard itself in General coaches as those days the salary of army personnel was less and father didn't wanted to spend that much money.
My first travel in reserved coaches on any trains was in year 1999 from Jhansi to cpr in Gwl Bju mail, which used to go till Chapra those days..

Dear Forum Members,
With due respect I would like to state you that the Rail Authorities should extend this train to Silghat (SHTT) in Assam. This will be good for the people of of that region as they have no direct train to Kolkata or other places except GHY/DBB.
What I propose is that the train can have stoppages at JKB, AONI, NGAN, SCE and CPK or JIB between SHTT and GHY.
An

AC 3 Tier coach and PC should be added to it.
Also, stoppages at FKM, GOGH, KAMG, FLK, JPE, DLK, AZR or SM, MRR and SNT or AMP could be removed so that the train becomes superfast or nearly superfast.
The timing should be like Deperature from SHTT at 14:30 and Arraival at SDAH at 11:40 and Deperature from SDAH at 18:00 and Arraival at SHTT at 15:10. Still, there will be sufficient loose time. The distance can be covered in lesser time.
It would be better if the train is diverted to HWH insted of SDAH.
The train can be renamed as Kaziranga Exp. or Srimant Shankardev Exp.
Waiting for your comments.

Dear Blog Members,
With due respect I would like to state you that the Rail Authorities should extend this train to Dhubri in Assam. This will be good for the people of Dhubri as they have no direct train to Kolkata or other places except GHY/SHTT and SGUJ.
What I propose is that the train can have stoppages at GKJ, AGMN and BXHT or TFGN between DBB and NCB.

North East is always neglected in every matter including Rail. Atleast, there are some South Bound trains from Guwahati although overcrowded. But, beyond Guwahati? There are only three Weekly trains from Dibrugargh: One Upto Chennai, one to Bangalore and one to Kanyakumari Via TVC and ERS. The condition is pathetic. Other states of North East has no rail or no BG rail connectivity.
There is one weekly train through Nagpur that also without SL and no train to Pune. I always have to change train at HWH. Imagine the problem of getting confirm tickets for both my trains. There are huge number of North East people travelling to Central India and Pune.

friends from Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura have to spend a huge amount for Aeroplane tickets to Kolkata to catch their trains from Kolkata everytime they go out.
And, if there is another Indo China war, What will happen to Arunachal Pradesh? We donot have an All Wether road connectivity to Tawang, the area claimed by China and also occupaied by them in 1962 whereas, there is a Rail Track on the other side.
Train Frequency to Gujrat, Rajasthan and Mumbai should also be increased.
Through this forum I want to request the Government to provide rail connectivity from all the parts of Northeast to other parts of the country. North East is not a foreign land. So, do not do this injustice.
Jai Hind.
