It is such a pathetic crawler with record halts
Let it be as it is
TATA-ALLP and DHN-ALLP are trains of two different zones (ECR & SER) which are running in combine mode.
So i also dont feel like seperate running of these trains. It is such a pathetic crawler with record halts. Let it be as it is.
Instead i would say ECR should start a totally New SF train from Jharkhand to South or atleast A Biweekly DHN-MAS SF via RNC-MURI-ROU-JSG-VSKP.

But then what about the passengers from Jamshedpur, CKP and surrounding areas ??? The passenger associations over there also have been for long demanding a separate rake with slight speeding up. This was also taken by the previous MP of JSR [Dr Ajoy Kumar]
I feel the biggest challenge in separating the two is the fact that currently both run daily with 7 rakes. So getting more rakes and another time slot for such a long dist is a big challenge.

Sijua on the DHN-KTH-CRP sub-section on the CIC line is a great place for railfanning. Trains here travel at a very low MPS, due to underground fire. This section was founded during colonial times in 1880, and in that way it precedes the Grand Chord, which was built in 1903.
At 1880 the Dhanbad-Jharia & the DHN-KTH-PLJE section was built and the tracks were laid down for the purpose of loading coal.Jharia and Katras in those days were tiny kingdoms, while Dhanbad was a small village. The coal in Jharia and Katras were the very best in the country, and as such the British made a deal with the local rulers to
...
more...
construct a railway line to Jharia & Katras. Sitting prettily in between Katras & Jharia, this small village Dhanbad was chosen as the terminus for this two lines. However there was a requirement for the construction of a Loco Tank for watering the engines, as well a loco shed for maintainance of the locos. The nearest loco shed, the then 'East Indian Railways' largest was at Sitarampur with which Dhanbad had no rail link. This was because the Damodar was then the 'Sorrow of Bengal'. Every year it flooded and caused the deaths of thousands. Even the british had tried for several years to built a bridge, but the monsoon flooding would undo every progess they made. And as such there were rail lines which terminated at Barakar. But with the discovery of rich coal areas,the british wanted them to be directly connected with the industrial heartlands of Calcutta.
This is how a small unknown village, by virtue of it's sheer luck happened to become a not only a railway terminus, but also housed 'EIR's' largest loco tank as well as largest loco shed!
After the completion of this route, the british suddenly realised that if they they laid a railway tracks from Howrah to Gaya to 'Moghulsarai' (The British name for now Mughalsarai), they happened to reduce the distance from Calcutta to Delhi even further. The Brits toiled for years and bridges were laid across the Damodar, the Phalgow and the '5km streching' Sone!
Tunnels were laid across the Gurpa & Gajhandi forrests, and curves bulit to counter the steep gradient change as the Chotanagpur Plateau receded. Finally with much fanfare Lord Minto innargurated the Grand Chord in 1906,at Gajhandi. Meanwhile the British had extended the DHN-PLJE all the way to Madhya Pradesh, and named it as the CIC section.
With the completion of the Grand Chord however, Dhanbad was connected to Calcutta as well and Delhi directly and as such, in a small space of time became a important junction on the Grand Chord. It became the center of Coal-Loading and passenger travel, as both Jharia and Katras lost their past influences, somewhat.
Within a space of 100 years a small unknown village has become a thriving industrial city! And all this started because of this two railway lines!
It is sad that both these railway lines hav had to become victims of Underground Fires, caused by pure negligence!
While the Dhanbad-Jharia line is already history, the DHN-PLJE section is counting it's last breaths! Alternate routes are being planned, and soon this line will fade into Oblivion.....................................
Coming back to the present. It was a hot sunny afternoon and myself and my friend found ourselves at Sijua station waiting to catch the Jhargram-Dhanbad MEMU to Dhanbad.
While standing the overhead bridges, we spotted three trains in the space of 1 hours. We spotted two WAM-4s, 2 WAG-9s, a WAG-7, and the MEMU itself!
However as a tribute to the WAM-4, the 'Rahul Dravid of Indian Railways', for it's selfless 40 years of service, we clicked the pictures of the two WAM-4s only!
Picture 1-5 shows MGS WAM-4 bring in the DHN-CRP passenger.
Picture 6 shows TATA WAM-4 speed by with the marathon runner ALLP-DHN Express.
Hope you enjoyed this railfanning report, I added a touch of the history of the CIC section as well!

Cool if it's true. I've not seen it with WAP 7 before. In recent times I've seen it running with WAP4/WAM4 mostly.

So I guess one might have to still wait for some time to see two separate rakes for DHN-Alleppey & Tata-Alleppey.
Here is the response from railway authorities on having raised the issue in the grievance portal
• For the passenger of Jharkhand desires of travelling to South part of the country, a new train between Hatia and Ernakulam will be introduced subject to availability of rolling stock
• Separate
...
more...
running of 13351/13352 Dhanbad-Alleppey Express and 18189/18190 Tatanagar-Alleppey Express is not operationally feasible at present.
The new train may not benefit people from Tata, may not run daily and may not touch Chennai. We have to still wait and watch. Even railways does not seem to have any update on its introduction
