Understanding congestion problems thru real time eg. Thanks to years of neglect and still our subject train flies through GC_ECR and covers DHN-MGS 402 km in 5 hours flat at 80kmph avg speed. From 20 mins delay to 32 mins b4 time arrival. Then has a lengthy halt for b4 time arrival at MGS 45 mins.which accepts train from Gaya, Mgs, Bsb side but for God knows reasons faILS miserably for Ald down trains. Then... more...
comes dreaded journey thru NCR where it arrives Ald at 3.10 taking 4 hours app. to cover 153km at 39kmph avg. Besides this happened when no Rajdhani ot it due delay of major except 12423 which platform ot it at ALD.

Hai na sirji the super crawler Maurya exp from mfp to dhn. Kya ek intercity type train possible hai between dhn and mfp ya phir overnight train. ECR atleast apne zone mein to train chala hi sakta hai. Ek special ke Roop mein hi sahi to see the patronage before making it regular. Rakes ki bhi koi samasya nahi honi chhaiye as 02395/96 ka rake is standing idle in dhn shed

3 compliments Awesome Great trip dairy Nice writeup.
TRIP REPORT - 22324/ER GCT KOAA (GAYA - BWN) 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 -... more...
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! ================== Cleanliness -> 09/10 Punctuality -> 10/10 Food -> 04/10 Railfanning -> 08/10 Safety -> 08/10 ================== Pictures summary : 01 - Gurpa Gujhandi Ghats 02 - Parasnath 03 - Express train at Gomoh washing pit line 04 - Gomoh Cabin 05 - Gomoh 06 - Gomoh 07 - Gomoh 08 - Gomoh 09 - Gomoh Cabin 10 - Routes towards Chandrapura.Jn 11 - Dhanbad.Jn arrival 12 - Unknown (Intercity/Passenger train) 13 - WAP-4 HWH with Shabd Bhedi Exp at DHN 14 - Member Amit Kumar Singh 15 - Me 16 - Me 17 - WAP-7 HWH with Ranchi Shatabdi Exp at DHN 18 - Unknown Passenger train 19 - WAM-4 MGS with Passenger train at DHN 20 - Dhanbad.Jn station name board 21 - Somewhere between DHN-ASN 22 - Somewhere between DHN-ASN 23 - Barakar river bridge (tributary of river Damodar) 24 - Barakar 25 - Asansol ELS 25 - Asansol ELS 26 - Durgapur.Jn 27 - Dankuni.Jn arrival by BWN HWH CHORD EMU.
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.

अजीब विसंगति है देश में, इनटरनेट फ्री है यहाँ लेकिन मूल-भुत जरूरत के लिए जद्दो-जेहद रोज़ का काम है। . Irony of this country, you get internet for free but have to struggle to secure basic needs like food.
