Please will anyone clarify :
Why does 13025 run from HWH-BRKA using a diesel traction inspite of having travelling through the 1st electrified route (HWH-DHN)?(Even DHN-CRP-BRKA is electrified, I mean why waste precious Diesel when an electric loco would provide the same, if not better service!
Same thing with Ranchi-Dumka intercity, an electric tration can easily work upto JSME, but no a BKSC WDM-3A hauls its straight from RNC to Dumka!
What I want to ask is:-
Is changing from diesel-electric really that difficult or expensive (Because I have seen Mughalsarai do it seamlessly all day)?
With oil prices rising shouldn't IR focus more on
...
Read more...
cutting operational costs (Reduce Diesel usuage & Increase Electric Traction usuage)?
And shouldn't the ALCO's put to rest finally! (Pollution Control and Fuel Saving)!

Besides instead of blindly following ALCO/EMD/GM's loco design plans blindly,IR should try to build a totally indigenious diesel loco
Look at what CLW has done WAP1,WAP2,WAP4,WAP7 were all build in India
If Clw can do such a brilliant job,no reason why the DLW Varanasi can't?
Exactly that is what should be done!

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.
