The slothness of Danapur PNC section can be understood from the fact that Capital Exp departed DNR @ 22.25 & in 75 mts has been ableto cover only 12 kms & hasn't been overtaken by any train...Great ECR!!!

It happens all the time with CAPITAL EXP. and if you see the official time table, you will find that between RAJENDRA PULL(RJO) and DINKAR GRAM SIMARIYA(DKGS) it takes approx one hour to cover just 4 kms.

i really don't understand why persons object on this post? I have seen posts that continuously keep updating about running status of sk and generally words used is 'burned tracks', 'blowing tracks', 'the beast', etc. for sk. One thing is sure you hate or love but can't ignore this train. I have seen lots of members who really love this train and lots who hate. But in my view we should not take posts personally. if train reached on time than we should appreciate the IR and if not than pls don't object on someone's criticism about late running.

12th march 2015.. my first ever experience of Goa Express..
we were about to celebrate the bachelor's party of one of my friend in Goa..
the real plan was to go there in January but didn't executed due to work commitment of one of our friend.. later i booked my 3A ticket in Goa exp almsot 58days before the journey date n got GNWL10/ WL10.. I was sure ye confirm ho jayega aur IRI pe bhi sab confirm bata rahe the.. on my journey date the status was RAC 9.. now
i was confused n had to believe ki Goa bohot demand wali train hai.. finally ticket got confirmed RF Archie sent a msg that "confirm ho gaya hai aur SLB seat mili hai" maje karo :)
the best thing was meri seat 47 thi n mere friends ki Pune se same compartment me 43 n 44 thi..
train departed few min late from NZM.. i was a bit late due to traffic aur 14:57 pe NZM phunch paya tha.. ek baar to laga ki train miss ho gayi aaj.. lekin train 15:10 pe departure liya usdin..
P7 accelerated fast n train reached MTZ 5min BT.. same story goes on till Daund n Goa reached everywhere BT.. departed RT from Daund after loco reversal n overtaken Jhelum somewhere between DAUND n PUNE...
Pune outer pe bhi BT aayi lekin wahan again Jhelum ne OT kara aur Goa finally 15min late aayi Pune station.. friends joined me from Pune n it was a memorable journey when you got like minded people in ur train journey..
finally reached MAO almost 90min delay at 7am.. it was a great journey bt still i feel there should be a dedicated Rajdhani for Goa..
overall Goa Express ke bare me jitna suna tha us se jyada achhi train hai ye :)
09/10 for this train :)

The two best concepts of trains for me are the samapark kranti trains and garib rath trains both flagged by lalu prasad yadav..
share ur views that which concept(type)of trains are the best according to you..and u may also add a concept of your choice which isnt present as of now...like i want ir to run all sleeper bogies trains with one or two chair cars to accomodate waitlist passengers and the waitlist should be made on the basis of the capicity of the chair cars present in that train..

IR should announce trains between KIR to NDLS via bju, pnbe, cnb. and two new trains via bju, mfp, gkp, cnb. presently not much train compare to pax.

Re# 1398734-17            Tags   Past Edits
yes, but it was not successful in some reason. e.g. IR started a jan shatabdi between kir to pnbe but soon they shifted to some other route probably pnbe-howrah route. the main reason was its price and in this route people generally pay for unreserved coaches. And probably the second reason was passengers forcefully tried to enter in A/C cc.

All of us think that IR trains should run on time.
As we know our infrastructure is not capable of running these trains on time practically.
Also bitter truth is Infrastructure not gonna improve in 2-3 years drastically.
So there should be some other way to runs trains on time.
try to give some suggestions..All railfans are requested to add their as we all know IR closer than other people in country.
1) Reschedule some daily late running trains.
2)As far as I know many trains are getting late due to "Run some big daddy( Such as Rajdhani's ) on time ". So reschedule their time also so it affects more trains.
Add ur views.

Re# 1404521-5            Tags   Past Edits
Yes agree, just take example of 12488/87, it never ever reaches on time always 6-10 hrs late. So, IR should reschedule its travel time frm 24 hrs to 29-30 hrs and also convert it frm SF to Mail/exp. so that passengers don't have to pay rs 15/30/45 extra as super fast charge. And it will also helps to reduce pressure from each zone.

nothing to be proud whether its vs or sk or any other until it gives satisfaction to its commuters and we know how passengers are treated. Passengers do not pay to get frustrated, but to reach on time. I can not afford to travel in rajdhani or in premium every time and on other hand i do not have any other option but board these (vs/sk/seemanchal/ne etc.) trains. And my frnd in my view proud is a very big word that can't be used for such services.

my frnd, i and most of passengers do care the delay in arrival/departure of trains. You might reached on time someday but you can't deny about late running of trains. 'PROUD' and 'LOVE' are different meaning words. You can be proud on sk when you reached on time on a particular day otherwise we all know the arrival/departure history of sk. I generally travel in ne/seemanchal and i can bet just show me 'THE' date on which it arrived on time. PROUD is something which is related to an achievement and i think taking 20-25 hrs for 1000kms is not an achievement. But yes, i also love IR and hope someday i will be proud on IR.
