October is an exciting month . The month of Diwali . . . which we all wait for months . As a railfan and a student I was super excited for the upcoming Diwali trip to my home . . . The exciting day arrived on 25th October – the day of my most awaiting trip . . . The trip was even more special because I was to travel in one of my favourite trains in which I had not travelled in last 15 years – SHAKTIPUNJ EXPRESS . . .
, It all began in September , the planning for tickets . . . As there are no direct trains between Bhopal & Bokaro Steel City so I had to plan my journey accordingly . The only direct train for Patna , Indore Rajendra Nagar Express was showing Regret in AC 3 & Sleeper class so Patna break journey link was not working . So after much planning I booked a break journey tickets on 13th September from Bhopal to Barkakana Jn in 12854 Amarkantak Express & 11447 Shaktipunj Express with change over at Jabalpur in AC 3 tier .
The Journey Day (25th October) :
It was a pleasant day , Autumn is one of the best season for railfanning . I reached Bhopal station at 15:00 hrs , Amarkantak Express was standing on pf 4 , ET WAP 4 was the loco link . My B2 coach was 2012 made and was nicely maintained . The train departed sharp at 15:40 hrs . The train reached Itarsi at 17:30 , the loco changed to ET WDM 3A twins . Also It was pleasure to meet railfan and our IRI member Suraj Parihar at Itarsi Jn . Train departed ET at 18:05 a delay of 25 mins . The twins rocked the journey , running flat at mps .Despite having 8 halts train covered 245 kms in 3 hr 50 mins with an average speed of 68 km/hr and reached Jabalpur at 21:45 . One thing was surprising that we had overtaken 22352 YPR PPTA SF Exp at Madan Mahal , don’t know why controllers allowed this overtake to happen .
Jabalpur Station :
The WCR headquarters was as clean as expected . . . I was accompanied by my 2 friends , we had nearly 2 hrs buffer time so we decided to have dinner outside the station campus in a dhaba . We returned to station at 23:30 hrs . 11447 was scheduled to depart right time at 23:50 from pf 3 . But the train was itself placed at 00:20 hrs . . .
Shaktipunj Express :
My coach was 2010 made and it was even more nicely maintained than Amarkantak Express . The train departed late by 55 mins at 00:45 . The bedrolls were given to us at 01:25 by the time train had reached Sihora Road station . The train was hauled by a WDM 3A of Patratu shed .
The next Morning (26th October)
I got up at nearly 07:15 , the train was standing at an unscheduled halt Mahdeiya station i.e it had entered ECR Dhanbad division , the train departed at 08:35 after crossing with UP 11448 Shaktipunj Exp . The train was very slow upto Chopan , at CPU the loco link changed to PTRU WDP 4 , the speed got better after getting an EMD . At 16:00 hrs when the train was approaching Latehar , which is naxalite prone area , the train suddenly stopped with a jerk , the reason was a tree that had suddenly fallen on the tracks . The tree was removed quickly with the help of passengers and the local police from the nearby station Hehegara halt . The train finally reached Barkakana Jn at 18:45 , a delay of 50 mins . All thanks to slack time . . .
Although Chandrapura Jn is the nearest station on this route from Bokaro Steel City I chose Barkakana because of good road connectivity . The Ramgarh Bus stand is situated 5 kms from Barkakana railway station . From Ramgarh bus stand we get frequent buses to Bokaro Steel City . Bokaro is at a distance of 78 kms from Ramgarh bus stand .
We reached bus stand at 19:30 , we boarded different buses , my friend went to Ranchi . The bus departed at 20:00 hrs and reached Bokaro at 21:30 . The average speed of the bus was 52Km/hr .
Thanks for reading my trip report . . .

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.

Awesome snaps of a reputed train from a station that's not much covered for rail fanning but serves an important Jharkhand Township.... did you fear for the insurgency prone region through which this train passed or was the security ok? :-o :-)

***********नक्सलियों ने विस्फोट कर मालगाड़ी उड़ाई*********
लातेहार , जेएनएन। झारखंड में नक्सलियों ने रेलवे ट्रैक क्षतिग्रस्त कर मालगाड़ी पलट दी और उसे विस्फोट से उड़ा दिया।
धनबाद रेलमंडल अंतर्गत बरकाकाना-बरवाडीह रेलखंड पर रविवार रात लगभग 2:15 बजे नक्सलियों ने बेंदी रेलवे स्टेशन के पास अप व डाउन रेल पटरी को विस्फोट कर उखाड़ दिया। थोड़ी देर बाद गुजरी कोयला लदी मालगाड़ी की 24
बोगियां पटरी से उतर गई। नक्सलियों ने चालक कमलेश कुमार, सहायक चालक चंदन कुमार व गार्ड मनीष कुमार को बंधक बना मालगाड़ी को विस्फोट कर उड़ा दिया। सुबह पांच बजे रेल कर्मियों को चेतावनी देकर छोड़ दिया गया।
नक्सलियों ने बरवाडीह-बरकाकाना रेल खंड पर संगठन के अगले आदेश तक रेल परिचालन बंद रखने का फरमान सुनाया है। घटना के बाद से अप व डाउन रेल लाइन पर रेल परिचालन पूरी तरह ठप हो गया है। घटनास्थल पर छोड़े गए पर्चे में नक्सलियों ने चारों ओर बम लगे होने से मजदूरों को रेल पेटरी से हटकर चलने को कहा है।
एसपी डॉ. माइकेल राज व डीएसपी रौशन गुड़िया के नेतृत्व में पुलिस छापेमारी कर रही है। भाकपा माओवादी की सब जोनल कमेटी ने धमाके की जिम्मेदारी ली है। पटरी उखड़ने से कई ट्रेनों के मार्ग बदल दिए गए हैं। सोमवार तड़के रांची-बनारस इंटरसिटी व शक्तिपुंज एक्सप्रेस को डेहरी होकर चलाया गया।
