Dear Sir,
I am writing to express some of my wishes and suggestions to you which can be beneficial to Railways.
1. POS should be installed on every reservation counter and and there should not be any extra charge for using it. It will help to reduce the extra time consuption in counting the currency and return change. Amount printed on ticket only be deducted.
2. Since INDB HBJ Double decker is running flop, a double decker can be introduced between BPL and NZM in reverse timing of Shatabdi. BINA JHS DAA GWL MRA AGC MTJ are intermediate stations which can give this train a better

petronage. By this way we will get a successfull DD. If the train is maintained in HBJ Railway station, it do not require any new arrangement for maintanance as DD is maintained at HBJ already. The loco link used with DD can be used with this train.
3. Sir MP Rajya Rani is running DMO to BPL. It can be introduced from KTE with new timings ie 5.00. At present this train arrives BPL at 10:00. Just before it Vindhyachal arrives. Updowners use Vindhyachal instead of this so if timings of 22162 Rajya rani changes it wont affect too much. It can reach BINA at 09:30 and BPL at 11:45. In return too there is Vindhyachal just after 20 min of its Departure so it can leave BPL early. It can leave BPL at 16:30, reach BINA at 18:30 or so and terminate at KMZ at 23:00.
Sir, Katni is a Major Junction and one of the major towns of MP. If RR is extended to KTE then,
a) It will reduce the load on Rewanchal.
b) Katni will get a dedicated train for BPL.
c) DMO SGO BINA will still be served by the same train just timing will slightly differ.
4. Sir, 11447/11448 JBP HWH Shaktipunj Express runs for 26 Hours in entire journey. There are no major stations enroute except DHN which provide good catering. If a Pentry Car is introduced in this train it will be a good deal for passengers as well as railways.

Thanks

Here I am sharing some of the pics of my recent journey to Bhopal in Barauni Gwalior Mail .
.
It was a memorable journey for me . . . I couldn’t get tickets in direct trains so planned my journey accordingly . Hajipur to Jhansi in BJU GWL Mail and Andaman Exp thereafter . I was lucky enough to get lower births in a full day/night journey . . . The train had superb run from Siwan to Gorakhpur and Lucknow to Kanpur

Waggie proved itself it was not less than anyone a wappie
A very comfortable journey in general class
Cont . . .(JHS to BPL)
Barauni mail reached Jhs at 20.40. My ticket in GT Exp remain waitlisted . So I made up my mind to catch Goa Exp . But I missed Goa exp when i was standing in the long queue at the booking office . Now i had 3 choice Gondwana exp , Shridham exp and Andaman exp .
Andaman came first . . .hauled by BRC WAG 5p I was surprised to see such an empty General Coach . I rushed inside and seated on the single seater. It was a superb journey . Waggie proved itself it was not less than a wappie . Finally reached BPL at 3 AM , 5 mins before . . . A very comfortable journey in general

First of all Eid mubarak everyone on IRI.
2 trip reports of same train, different destinations different times but same loco class......
These trip reports are my 2 encounters with Mangala Lakshadweep Express, short but adrenaline filled journeys, speed thrills and notches that tear tracks apart. The first meet was old when i wasn't much of a railfan, returning home after a long tiring SCRA exams.The only tech i had was an analog watch and a symbian phone that my grandmother gave for the trip. The reports could be awfully long, details could be cloudy,tech terms could be less although i understood which loco was what at that time and please bear with my english and grammatical mistakes throughout these reports :)

was a long tiring exam(3 papers 2 hours each) and my return was with a night train which would reach my home after midnight (1am) a 05:30hrs+ trip and i was awfully yawning. I reached station at 19:00hrs and found a huge crowd of passengers waiting for a train at Bhopal PF1 with a ticket in WL, I saw my foggy chances of getting a confirmed seat in train and proceeded towards chart and found my ticket to be in WL2. Sad and tired i went and sat on a bench and saw a yellow light approaching on my PF1 it was around 19:30 and i thought my train was arriving ahead of its schedule and announcement of Punjab mail started, it was heavily delayed Punjab mail with a midmounted red engine with Ghaziabad written in lead of the rake and 8 AC coaches with it. All the crowd started accomodating coaches of the train and soon platform was empty, the even heavy train departed after a 10 minutes halt now i was calculating how much delay it would make up till Burhanpur. After Punjab mail 2 trains departed and on opposite side Goa GT and Gondwana departed, it was already 20:25 and my train was nowhere to be seen. At 20:30 a red engine with top headlight engine made entry with the rake of my train, bhusawal and 22626 was written on it (i still remember the number because out of amazement i re checked it after reaching home). I checked with TTE and he had no seats to clear my WL, i then went first towards GS coaches near loco and found them to be reasonably empty, shocked and out of amazement i sat in one of the track facing window seats. A coach 3rd from loco was a treat to travel. Our locomotive honked and started changing points to mainline, meanwhile i saw the bilaspur bhopal express with yellow loco resting on another pf which arrived before our train.
Acceleration started and our train was flying at full speed in no time(MPS) and Habibganj was dusted with powerful honking action, the ripping and honking action continued till Barkhera station, where ghats started and our train was doing close to 70 km/h till Budni station, the train again started full speed action till Itarsi Outer, where we were halted for 5-10mins and we reached Itarsi. some 45 mins behind schedule, i was doubtful about train reaching on time and after some 15 minutes train departed, making it 55 minutes behind schedule. In no time i was napping and after 15 mins of sleep on a GS chair :p i found train to be blasting at top notch, strong winds blowing and the LPs mercillessly honking the engine. Travelling in relatively empty GS has its own perks, everyone dozed off on luggage shelves and seats and i went towards door, as i opened it, strong air drag tried to push me and outside the door was pitch black darkness, the only light source there was our coach i stood for 10-15 mins the train blasted till Khandwa, with the only slowdown at harda because of PSR at sharp curve.and we arrived some 20 minutes behind schedule. 183 kms in 5 minutes less than 2 hours, a whopping of 95+kmph. We had a 3 mins halt at Khandwa from where train halted only at Burhanpur PF1 10 minutes behind schedule. I ran towards loco read the number and stored it in my contacts as Mangala express loco :) . The next day when i had chat with some of my friends, who boarded Punjab Mail at Hbj reached only 10 minutes ahead of my train.
Next part will be another trip, thst one is recent and i have some pics of it ...

Still we do not have a single LHB rake that too of DD which runs almost out of WCR territory While I heard a news of allocation of LHB to a Jansadharan Express in some Zone
While I heard a news of allocation of LHB to a Jansadharan Express
By this Time only one LHB rake is with WCR That too of DD and No one is sure with its future

Sometimes I think IR is being partial and benefits some special zones where as there are other zones which also need the same amenities. For example WCR needed many things which could happen years before. One of them is LHB rakes. All we know that WCR is best in cleaning and maintainance of coaches. First ISO certified train belongs to WCR. It is one of the best zones in terms of punctuality. Still we have single LHB rake that too of DD which runs almost out of WCR territory While I heard a news of allocation of LHB to a Jansadharan Express in some Zone. I don't say equip all our trains with LHB but some of our trains like GONDWANA, MPSK, SHAN-e-Bhopal, Rewanchal should run with LHB. By this Time only one LHB rake is with WCR That too of DD and No one is sure with its future....

agree with u bro as now SECR also got an LHB spl train between BSP-BGKT so y WCR is not getting any spls or existing trains into LHB dont knw y IR is still sleeping for LHB allocation to WCR as of now only still running train of frm WCR is NDLS-BPL shatabdi but that too is of NR zone so wen those days will come wen we can see LHB trains on ALD/COI/PNBE-STA-KTE-JBP-ET-CSTM/South stns.or BPL-ET-CSTM/LTT/South sections or other routes of WCR and LHB's r being allocated time to time to other zones but WCR is purely neglected and even today WCR is not having any Passing/terminating LHB train so its a big negligence by IR and atleast some well maintnd trains shud b convertd to LHB asap

let me tell you something,the spl you are talking about is actully a budget 2013 announced train {biweekly} ,but still running as spl. it took 1 yr for railways to give rakes to that train,after that SECR discovered that railways has sent them wrong coaches. now after 1 more yr,the correct coaches arrived. the train is the only LHB train passing from SECR{apart from HWH duruntos}. the requirement to run both trains{bsp bgkt and bsp bkn} are 80 LHB coaches{4 rakes} which itself is not a short amount considering railways had capacity of 300 coaches per yr at that time.
here im NOT saying that wcr dont need LHB,but due to shortage of those coaches it cant be given to every zones,but hopefully things will get better, my bet is on jabalpur gondwana to get lhb 1st followed by others.

That's why the question arised why an ordinary SF Exp getting LHB before a SF
Recently I heard that Kushinagar exp 11016 will get LHB. That's why the question arised why an ordinary Exp getting LHB before a SF. They should do one thing provide LHB to SF and use its old rake with an exp.
