This secton of ECOR has become a new bermuda triangle of indian railway.. From last few months i am observing JJKR-CTC section and i found trains getting stuck here.. This section with normal speed can be done in 50-55 mins but all the superfasts specially during evening time are taking on average 90 to 100 mins.. Evening superfast trains like janshatabdi,shatabdi,coromandel and others are... more...

Video taken by me (@IndianTrainFan on Twitter) of Yeshwantpur - Howrah Duronto Express departing from Yeshwantpur Jn. You can hear that my Parents were correct regarding our train's direction and I had thought the other way but I was proved wrong. . Original YouTube Link: click here . PS:... more...
These are the first pictures taken by me of Yeshwantpur Jn from 12246 Duronto Express during it's departure (Dec, 2013).
TRIP REPORT of my Journey Experience on 12246 Yeshwantpur (Bangalore) - Howrah Duronto Express via Renigunta - Vijaywada - Bhubaneswar :- . My experiences of traveling by 12246 YPR - HWH Duru Baby Exp was quite good. My Parents and I enjoyed traveling by this train very much. It was a secure, clean & punctual train (up to Bhubaneswar and reached HWH 1.5 Hours late). There was no security personnel throughout the train journey as the catering staff was very strict enough not to allow any unreserved passengers/Non - IRCTC Hawkers within our... more...
train. Mr. Jena, the Main Catering Attendant in our coach was very courteous along with his bright staff. The In House coach washer men asked for tips in the end of the journey but we told them that Mr. Jena had been awarded the tip on the staff's behalf so no more tips. It was awesome to see that our train reached at it's first tech halt Renigunta, where I saw a Tirupati bound train from MAS Side. In the evening and late night, our train skipped stations like Nellore at great speeds. The train was at it's MPS even the next morning while it thrashed stations like Naupada Jn, Palasa, Jhadupudi and Ichchapuram. It was too tough for me to stand near the occupied toilets near the main gates at such MPS. We were served breakfast after Nirakarpur in Odisha and I enjoyed it while watching the Sun-soaked Chilka Lake sidings. Later, our train reached at Bhubaneswar on time where we met the Dhanbad - Bhubaneswar Garib Rath Express. The skips on various bridges at MPS after Barang Jn were also too good. I even loved to see our train skipping stations like Cuttack Jn, Balasore and Kharagpur Jn at decent speeds. After KGP, our train struggled to reach Howrah since EMUs from Panskura Jn onwards started chasing us. They were given priority over our Duru baby and the slogging continued till Tikiapara Rail yard. I liked to witness the State Borders between Andhra Pradesh - Odisha and Odisha - West Bengal. Concrete sleepers are installed between the tracks at these points that display the Welcome Text. The staff was friendly as usual and told us to check all our belongings before we leave the train. It's a good train provided you do not have a connecting chain to any other West Bengal location from Howrah since it may get late. Personally, I feel that this is a good Train to travel by between Bangalore (BENGALuru) & Howrah. ---------------- My marks for this train on the following parameters :- ------------ 1) Security: 9/10 [Vigilant Coach Attendant(s) were seen at all times] 2) Food Catering: 8/10 [Minus 2 Marks for Dominance of Paneer in Veg Food] 3) Punctuality: 7/10 [ Delays due to slogging after Kharagpur but SRC WAP-4 was extremely powerful] 4) Speed Performance(MPS Behavior): 9/10 [Speed was perfect from train's side but some unscheduled halts spoiled the fun] 5) Cleanliness: 10/10 [Coach & Toilets were cleaned at all Technical Halts] . My 12245 Howrah - Yeshwantpur Duronto Express Trip Report
Thanks... it took me months to upload all my videos from my 12245 and 12246 Duronto Express journeys on IRI. I think that this is my last trip report on IRI since I am not sure of my future train journeys... my professional/personal life is going to be more hectic in the years to come... thanks a ton :-D
Thanks PK Sir... I would also love to travel by some other trains like the Sealdah - New Delhi AC Duru, Sealdah - Amritsar Akal Takht Exp and even the Sealdah - Katra Premium Exp in the years to come :-)
I think tripling caused 2 hr delay and power issue caused another 2 hrs delay resulting in 4 hrs delay.... Bad Luck, as will be traveling on this train from upcoming station... waiting and waiting...!!!
Railways mein anything is possible..They are working on a major work, so all the trains enroute are going through TSR here. Thats why as trains are going slow with caution , thats why they are getting delayed.
Not only 22811, all trains of this route getting delayed in jjkr-ctc.. This is happening from last 10-15 days.. Today 12842 coromandel took almost 2 hrs 25 mins to cover ctc-jjkr.. i guess some work must be going on there..
