ITs always have been a discucing matter THE SPEED RISTRICTION between Gujhandi Paharpur,, koderma ghats. So let's begin with GOMOH,, as your train passes gomoh towards parasnath maximum speed allowed is 120kmph,,which goes constant till Parasnath after that it fluctuates 100-120 and 90 on some curves... after hajaribagh again 120 till koderma 100 on pass of station and 120 till that notice board.. Gati seema ka palan karein.. And enters of Gujhandi allows 85kmph,,and tunel village Dilwa gives pass of 65 ,,all 3 tunels made in 1906 allows maximum 45-50kmph ,ghat section keep fluctuating 35-45-65-80,after jadavpur halt,, famous mountain temple of god hanuman it raises to 90kmph and last station of ghats Gurpa allow 90kmph and goes on till 120 constantly till gaya except curve.

Travel Tip: Never sleep after Dhanbad when your train is passing through stations like Bholldih, Nimiaghat, Guraru, Paraiya, Gujhandi, Dilwa, Gurpa, Paharpur, Manpur, Dehri-On-Sone, Sasaram and Babhua Road since these areas are well-known for insurgency and robberies on trains. Kindly stay vigilant during sleep mode also when your train passes through these stations after Sunset... thanks!!!

I can understand as it's the force from UP that knows about anti-social elements from neighboring states entering into their state... jurisdiction issues are always a problem that such gangs take advantage of and this loop-hole of the law needs to be filled :-p

Yes... cities like Varanasi and Mughalsarai fall into UP's Chandauli District that shares State Borders with Bihar so an element of security risk always prevails.... the political situation in Bihar can escalate it's law and order problem even more.... God save us (Common People of India) :-/

Yes in plain and simple terms they referred to them as "Bihari Gangs". I actually got only my passport back after a month which was found by a Buddhist Monk in Gaya. By then I had got my new passport from US Consulate at Chennai. I still keep it as a souvenir.

Sorry to know about all these thefts. While carefulness is surely needed, chaining of our luggages is also a must. Furthermore, we should not be careless in any place thinking it is safe.

Celibrate the 116 years of Legendary Grand chord the life line of indian railway The day is the 6th of December 1906. The place is an unknown town called Gujhandi close to Hazaribagh with a newly laid rail track alongside, winding its way through the hills. The Viceroy, Lord Minto has just finished securing a fishbolt on the track using a silver spanner, and amidst cheers and applause, the company of distinguished guests turn back to the shamiana. The band has struck up a lively tune, and the company seems jubilant and expectant . . . there is a feeling of triumph in the air. Finally the trumpets subside, there is an uneasy calm; Lord Minto rises, while Mr. James Douglas, Agent of the East Indian Railway and Lady Minto and a host of dignitaries look on with pride.GRAND CHORD RAILWAY

The Internet Info states that Lord Minto who was the Viceroy of India had inaugurated the Dhanbad - Gaya - Mughalsarai Grand Chord Route by attending an inaugural function at Gujhandi Station. This small monument may be the symbol of that function. In today's time I think that it would be unsafe to visit these stations in the dense Dhanua - Manua Forest Belt of this Koderma Hill Area ;-)

However, though it took years but finally I am satisfied for the following two reasons

Bingo.... Your camera is at the right moment and at the right spot :-D
.
PS: Another location on the Grand Chord Route is the stretch between Kumardhubi and Pradhankhunta Jn that is a rock ravine belt (similar to the one on the Bangalore - Bengarapet Stretch used as Gabbar's hideout in the 1975 Hindi Film Sholay). I remember that some passengers of my 2nd AC Coach were taking the location's photos by opening the main gates. Many passengers like us had objected to that behavior since we felt that opening of the

I have taken a video during night time of this tunnel while traveling by 12357 Exp in Dec, 2012. My video only consists of the tunnel tube lights since it was taken from the 2nd AC Coach seat window. My train slowed down for sometime between Gujhandi and Paharpur but it's best MPS performance was on sections like Dhanbad - Gomoh, Gomoh - Parasnath, Paharpur - Gaya and Dehri - Mughalsarai... Gaya - Dehri stretch was also quite impressive :-)
