New Trains in Rail Budget 2014-15 For Jharkhand #1
Presenting a series of new trains for Jharkhand in upcoming Rail Budget 2014-15 made by me. The first is Howrah-Tatanagar AC Superfast Express by utilizing the rake of HWH-DGHA Duronto Express.
AC Express
Howrah-19.15 Except Wednesday
Kharagpur-20.53 20.55
Tatanagar-22.55 Except Wednesday
Tatanagar-05.40 Except Wednesday
Kharagpur-07.23 07.25
Howrah-09.15 Except Wednesday
Distance-250 km
Travel Time-3 Hours 40 minutes (HWH-TATA)| 3 Hours 35 minutes (TATA-HWH)
Average Speed-71 km/hr (approx)
Coach Composition-EOG-02 CC-07 EC-01
REASON FOR SUCCESS AND NEED-Intercity service between Steel City of Jamshedpur and nearest Metro Kolkata. Morning departure and arrival from Tata and at Howrah will make it most preferred train from Tata along with normal fare structure. Short travel time is also a plus point.
Departure from Howrah is late evening which is preferred by many passengers rather than the departure time of Steel Express.
Comment are welcome.

(a) Wednesday off: I presume you want to take care of the "mangla haat" of Howrah for which many passengers are expected between TATA and HWH on tuesdays, and also because of the weekly off-day for shops in Jamshedpur markets/shops on tuesday.
(b) TATA Dep 05.40: In winter it may be too tough and thus patronage may be drastically affected.
(c) Journey time 3 hr 35 min TATA-HWH: Better to keep it 3 hr 45 min due to difficulties in availability of platforms at HWH after 9 am. When Ispat was
introduced, the travel time was 3 hr 30 min, but had to be revised to 3 hr 40 min - so far the record time that was - that too during 'Emergency period' days when trains were running along with watch-hands.
(d) I would have added Ghatsila as stoppage, although the golden days of Ghatsila/Rakha are now gone.

The 2-storied station building has quite a number of rooms on the first floor - good location, view also should be good. One IR person said these are retiring rooms. Somebody may throw light on details w.r.t availability, booking procedure etc.

I was under the impression that trains between Howrah and Digha start from/arrive at Shalimar. On the IR site, I observe that the three pairs of trains (Tamralipta, Duronto and Kandari) start from/arrive at HWH. Please let me know if this is a recent development.

Admin, sir,
Ref: #839743
May I seek some clarification? In this forum, a member can post a fake photo, beg mere apology when caught, stay silent for more than a month and then start continuing blogging - is it?

(a) Nimpura is a listed station between KGP and TATA (SER). Does any train stop there? I observe that even some local trains (MEMU) do not stop at NMP.
(b) Which are other such IR stations where no train stops?

Oct 04 2013 (16:58)   CHKB/Chakki Bank (3 PFs)

Entry# 867842            Tags   Past Edits
(a) It appears that Chakki Bank (CHKB) has been renamed as Pathankot Cant (PTKC). The official IR site indianrail.gov.in shows the station codes ['View Codes']. However, if one goes to 'Train Berth Availablity' and type PTKC or Pathankot Cant, there is no response. Surprisingly, it responds for CHKB. As first experiment, one may try to get the schedule for 11078 Jhelum Exp - it shows calling at CHKB, not PTKC.
(b) If my memory (as heard from one uncle who was posted in Jammu) does not betray, long back, in the 1940/50s, there was a small station named Pathankot Cant at the same location where passenger trains did not call at. Only army trains used to stop. That station was gradually developed
as a major station when the track was extended till Jammu. Some trains started going towards Jammu Tawi avoiding PTK and the reversal. I recall, in 1981 when we had a trip to Kashmir and took SDAH-JAT Exp, the train went via PTK. Old Bradshaws will reveal the story - if someone has it please.
(c) We had a trip to Dalhousie in October, 2011 when we detrained/boarded trains at CHBK. It is a station heavily guarded by army personnel [International border with Pakistan is 25-30 km away]. We were told a very large ammunitions godown was nearby. In fact there is a U-turn towards PTK, and PTK is hardly 2-3 km away..

These tragic photos show the body of a tusker elephant who died today when he was hit by a speeding train
West Bengal.
The adult elephant was struck by a train in a forest at the Buxa Tiger Reserve, a few miles from Alipurduar in north east India.
A speeding passenger train, the Guwahati-bound Somporkkranti Express, hit the elephant while he was crossing the railway line. He died instantly.
Hecan species, only male Asian
elephants have tusks, m the elephant who died
here was an adult male
The tiger reserve where the
elephant was killed is inside the
Buxa National Park, which runs along
India's boundary with Bhutan.
This means that the tiger reserve
serves as international corridor for
elephants migrating between India
and Bhutan, making a it a danger
spot for train drivers.
Indian forest guards now have the
difficult task of getting the huge
animal off the tracks so that the train
line can reopen.
Sadly this fatal collision was not an
isolated incident.

Re# 686866-67            Tags   Past Edits
(1) I find you have used Damanpur station (DPO). I do not find the station/code on indianrail.gov.in - could you plz throw some light. I'm particularly interested because this station, which was located bit north of APDJ and presumably a defunct station now, was indeed a station in pre-partition days (Bradshaw).
(3) A mild comment connected with the said blog #686866: I think such unfortunate incidents mostly occur between Rajabhatkhawa and Kalchini/Hasimara. Damanpur was a station bit north of present day APDJ, between APDJ and Rajabhatkhawa which is not the usual "elephant corridor". The usual corridor starts almost from the Hasimara/north end of Rajabhatkhawa platform till Kalchini/Hasimara. Two years back in December, when we were spending a week long winter vacation with
family at Rajabhatkhawa Tourist Lodge which is very close to Rajabhatkhawa station, many times we heard elephants 'calling' at night - people there confirmed that and mentioned that the elephants were crossing from the western side of the track to the eastern side towards Buxa/Jayanti.

So, you are confirming that the person, who faked the photo by superimposing and gave you permission to use it on web site forum like this one, is not in India now - he has gone abroad last week for 2 months.
A strange coincidence indeed!
However, his departure details, passport details, etc are recorded at places - they should be available.
it would have been better if within 24 hours, we would have seen another post of yours begging apology that you are the 'real' person behind all this - the said person is not at all involved.

"Also in blog 838060, Some One have asked my irregularity in forums - -":
In the blog thread 838060, where did appear your name plz?
A coincidence - a bengali saying -
[nearest transcript/translations appear within brackets]
"thakur ghore ke?" (who's there in the room where idols are placed for worship? - asks a member of the family hearing some noise coming from there)
A: "ami to kala khaini!" (no, no, i have not consumed the bananas kept for offerring - comes the reply from a member who has been actually consuming the bananas)
So, are you also admitting your activities: "One particular member (at least so far I've detected) has 'unusual' activities in such forums (like flickr, FB, IRFCA, even linkedin!) including this one. The person has been challenged on occasions, and then has either become silent or has reappeared after some days with a different ID."
