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.

The Most spectacular view that one can have while onboard 12382, (I mean not only this frame, but the entire Ghat Section never lets anyone to pass without making them say "WOW") There are more scenic captures available on internet of this majestic ghat section (Including Mount Mahakassapa, you know that by a yellowish appearing Temple situated at the Peak of that mountain). But this one is my best of my mobile's camera, It is not like that my camera has reproduced the exact same beauty, but it is only 10% of the radiance of that area, after all, Experiencing the scene by physically being there gives an extra touch and feel where all the factors combines and make you feel like at heaven.

[[The Contrast and Gradients played by nature is lightyears ahead of that of any painter/Photographer, From the Greens of Plants to Blues of clouds and luminance spread all around, Blacks are up but still shadows aren't that down, All this is possible for only one Artist..... THE ALMIGHTY _/\_. A photographer may strive and get much of that in his photograph, but the essence and other factors aren't reproducible.]]

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) :-/

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
Programme of Opening :--
The timings of trains for conveyance of guests leaving Howrah on the night of the 5th December for Gya and arriving at Howrah on the morning of the 7th is given in the Abstract Time Table already issued.

The Band of the East Indian Railway Volunteer Corps will be in attendance.
His Excellency the Viceroy will reach Gujhandi at 2-40 p.m. and will perform the ceremony of opening the Railway by inserting a fishbolt at one of the rail joints and fastening the same with a silver spanner.
