Yesterday saw lots of Freights moving towards Dankuni.
One of the Freights captured rushing towards ASN.
'95 commissioned WAG 7 from MGS doing the hard work, bearing road no. 27048. But rusted also.

I didnt mean to say that. I meant that there isn't a plan yet for LHB SG rakes to run with LHB SLR.

Ideally, one power car is enough, but an EOG van is still needed for backup in case the HOG fails. And IR is modifying the existing EOG vans to be used as power cars for HOG, instead of building separate dedicated power cars. And there are restrictions on having passengers in the coaches containing diesel generators, as the noise and the danger of fire accidents are much higher in these coaches. So, even the under-slung generator coach that IR was testing, is only a Guard-cum-parcel van and not an SLR.
Another thing affecting the change is the lack of passenger-cum-guard LHB coaches. This was not required until now as all trains always had EOGs at the
end. But now, with one EOG removed, there is no provision to deploy a guard at the rear of the train.
To solve this problem, IR is now deploying EoTT devices ( End of train telemetry devices) on it's trains. These devices will monitor the rake continuously and directly let the driver know in case of rake-parting or any other mishap. This will remove the need to keep the guard in the last coach of the train and he/she can now be present in any coach in the train. And in case of HOG trains, there can be only one EOG van and the guard can monitor the rake even while sitting at the head of the train.
ICF CBC SLR's cannot be used for 2 reasons. First reason is their speed restriction to 110kmph, which obviously isn't sufficient for the high speed LHB trains with 130kmph clearance. The 2nd and more important reason is the difference in the electrical and brake connections for LHB and ICF coaches. Because of this, it is not safe to have a passenger-filled coach freely trailing behind the train as the ICF coach's brake pipe system would not be compatible with the LHB coach's system. Even a EOG style ICF coach can not be used in this case.

Awesome Great trip dairy Nice writeup.
Trip report for my journey done along with our IRI member & friend Mr.Amit Kumar Singh (Bhilai) on 17th December 2016 (Saturday) from Gaya.Jn to Barddhaman.Jn
Reached Gaya.Jn station at 05:40 Hrs, spotted Mumbai Mail arriving at pf#01 along with a WAP-7 HWH, while we moved along with our luggage on pf#02-03, it was 05:45 Hrs but still no announcement or name over display board then heard a shrill sound of horn along with bright headlight, yes that was our train to board -
much hyped 22324 Shabd Bhedi Express over pf#02 but along a red WAP-4 HWH. Still there was no announcement nor coach position displayed over pf, we hurried on to our coach that was S6 33LB, 34MB, 36LB. As soon as we got seated over berths finally the announcer woke up to announce this trains arrival, that too with very unpleasant hoarse sound but by that time train was already rolling! I would say I was very much disappointed by this poor behaviour at such important station! Well after departure train started gaining speed it was very cold outside & a bit foggy too! After passing Paharpur we started slowing down for upcoming Gurpa - Gujhandi Ghat section ahead, which was a new experience for me as in past journeys this section was passed during night time. I took out the cellphone & starting recording the section admist chilly cold winds, which literally froze my hand of it's warm blood, but still kept on with railfanning! At this section we crossed many trains which were re-scheduled from Kolkata side, at Gomoh.Jn we overtook a train. Arrival at Dhanbad.Jn was very early at around 30 mins from it's scheduled arrival over pf#01. We hopped outside over platform to get some tea & snacks, we over train too vendors were selling tea, but we preffered station tea & samosas (singara). We cheched the loco link again to take some front snaps but due to presence of large numbers of RPF guys & instead returned towards backside & Ranchi Shatabdi Express arrived at pf#05 with a WAP-7 HWH. While departing saw a WAM-4 MGS over pf#02 with some Passenger service awaiting to depart. Till Asansol run was good just at one place we slowed down to cross Maithoon river, thereafter straight halt at Asansol.Jn. At Asansol ELS saw couple of WAP-4's, WAG-7 & twin WAP-7 (probably new). halt at Durgapur.Jn was short & sweet over pf#04. After that we started sorting out over belonging to alight at next halt that was at Barddhaman.Jn while Amit was to alight at Kolkata Terminus (Chitpur). Prior to entry at BWN we were kept waiting at outer while a WAG-7 JHS hauled CONCOR rake was slowly in parallel direction overtooking us, but withinn some moments we were given to proceed to finally overtake that freighter & I was just waiting to board BWN CHORD EMU. Arrival at Barddhaman.Jn was over pf#05, we bid farewell to Amit & ran to buy tickets, finally when arrived saw HWH CHORD EMU had already arrived over pf#04. We boarded EMU & I finally dozzed off over window seat & proceeded to have cubersome journey till Dankuni.Jn.
Thank you for reading the trip report & positive feed backs expected!

Ok... so you got the privilege to take snaps of this newbie train at Gaya, Dhanbad, Asansol, Durgapur and Bardhamman... all biggie stations covered between Mughalsarai and Kolkata for this train. Nice snaps... did your train slow down at GMO or skipped at a decent speed since track renewal work was going on over there some months ago ? :)

Pic 23 is Barakar river bridge is sort of border that marks end of Jharkhand and beginning of West Bengal. With KMME (my home station) in Jharkhand and Barakar station in WB. Besides as this train goes to KOAA its route must separate from Dankuni JN so it would halt for signal or something. I have once seen SDAH Rajdhani halting there. So u could have debaorded there. In case it didnt halt there was no way but to come back from KOAA by bus or train.
