Oct 31 2015 (8:01PM) Iknowthatthe given a commercial stop, but this extension will add some more pax to this train
The present SC-LTT Duronto's occupancy is very low. So this train can be extended to BZA via GNT in future and we can expect an increase in the occupancy ratio keeping Secunderabad in GNWL. Thogh PUNE has been given a commercial stop, this extension will add some more pax to this train. Waiting for your valuable suggestions. Before flagging RED please confess your issues with this, thank you.
If BBS it may start at 4:30 am... it will benefit BBS BAM including vzm n sklm dists. Nw BBS city also includes, u might be double sure that it gets fulfilled BBS,BAM,VSKP,SLO,RJY,BZA,GNT if via BVRT BVRT and GDV also.
Again saying, what you are showing is true, nothing to deny the fact. But what I and other bloggers are saying is, to run a correct type of train at correct time. We need to consider which class of people are traveling in a given section. We are talking about people for whom, taking 230Rs GS ticket matters a lot. We are not asking to run Shatabdhi, Garibrath, Duronto, AC SF etc. we are talking about an intercity kind of connectivity for the sake of this section of people.
Actually, isn't "brute force" that is being expected, but actually acceleration and balancing speed. A WAM4 would maintain lower speed on a continuous gradient, compared to WAPx, WCAM3 and WCAM2P. WAP1's issue occurred in BNI-BKA section, and one of the reasons stated was the poor driving technique employed by the LP. Loco link was provided by CR, not NR :P 682 31-Jul-16 12137 Dir 43 WCR BPL 22065 GZB WAP1 Conventional Miscellaneous Train (CSTM-FZR, 24-B) loss on run between BNI-BKA due to WAP-1 loco provided by CR instead of WAP-4. 0 (1) No trouble in AC loco.

in this case WAP-1 loco was wrongly provided ex LTT/BB Div.of CR. (3) There was heavy rain in section & sanders were working. (4) LP wedge Q-51 relay at BNI which is before enterning into the ghat section & there was raining in section. (5) Even after the loco was healthy, LP (JHS/NCR) could not haul the load in a graded section of 1:125 due to poor driving technique & lost 21" as loss on run. (6) Sr.DEE/TRO/BPL informed to Sr.DEE/TRO/JHS. (7) Punctuality of this train was initially shown on Other Railway (ORL) account but lateron Traffic deptt (Rly Bd) has changed the head and wrongly shown on Direct AC loco (DELC) account. Crew/Loco Operation --------------- Punjab Mail got WAP1 a few more times after July 31.

12219 LTT SC Duronto gets looped at Nagansur for crossing with Karnataka Express. Our (Me & RF Amol Nikam) 12219 were embarked on an RF trip involving 3 trains & 12219 was the first of the lot. Right from the start 12219 got excellent priority as overtook Siddheshwar express at KYN and LTT CBE at Thane itself. But for some reason we were delayed by almost an hour by the time we reached Pune. After that we were just maintaining delay. Little bit of slack kicked in. We were 45 min late at Solapur, after which we were looped at Nagansur station for NDLS bound Karnataka express. Karnataka Express was hauled by MLY WDM3A Twins 16683R+16695R in SHF- LHF mode. Looks like... more...
Karnataka was very close to the station so seems to have slowed down, hence crossed us at sedate speed. Infact it was picking up some speed as it crossed us. Towards the end you can see there is a lovely gradient which I wanted to capture as Karnataka express was about negotiate it. But the Pantry guy had some other ideas and decided to crash my video towards the end..damn! anyways enjoy the video though. Amol Nikam can be seen Shooting the same video :)
