Catenary Jungle at HWH Outer... I think that some ER trains can be shifted to the HWH Stn's new complex to reduce some load from the old complex... the trains can change tracks from SER to ER at this location ;-D

Yet Another EPITAPH for the HWH-DHN DD express!
Excerpt from the TIMES OF INDIA KOLKATA 26/03/2015
KOLKATA: The country's first air-conditioned double-decker train between Howrah and Dhanbad, which was flagged off in 2011, has come a cropper. Eastern Railway (ER), which went through a lot of trouble to accommodate the train, has now been forced to cancel it due to lack of patronage.
The rake is now lying unused with no other railway zone showing any interest in using it. ER will give it one more try by changing the timings in the next time-table. If it still fails to attract passengers, the train will be scrapped.
"The train has unique features. It is

wider than other trains and during trials, the outer shell scraped against the edge of the platforms. There used to be deep scratch marks on the exterior after every trial run. The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) would never allow commercial runs unless this defect was rectified. Finally, a decision was taken to shorten the width of platforms along its path. Work was undertaken in nearly 20 stations and there was a lot of inconvenience to commuters. There are several utilities that run along the edges of platforms. These had to be shifted as well," a senior ER official said.
There was also trouble with the overhead equipment (OHE). The double-decker coaches are higher than conventional ones and the overhead wires were too close to the roof for comfort. It was decided to raise the height of OHE, along a single track, for the stretch between Howrah and Dhanbad.
"Trouble is that the average occupancy rate of the train remained between 15 and 20%. It gets difficult to run a train unless the minimum occupancy is about 40-45%. After suffering losses, we were forced to cancel it. We will take a final decision on whether to run the train after the new time table is released," an ER official said.
