This is what happened today at #Nizamabad Railway Station Booking Counter. The #Good & the #Bad.
So as it can be seen on the ticket, 4 of my friends are traveling from Nizamabad (NZB) to Pandharpur (PVR) tomorrow (20/01/17) via NZB-PVR Pass which departs at 13:25 from NZB. So today(19/01/17) at around 11:30AM after we were finished at Passport Office in NZB, me along with a friend (one of the 4 friends) went to railway station to get 4 tickets of sleeper class.
As always there was rush at the
booking counters, I filled the reservation form and finally got the tickets. We checked what berths we got and left the railway station saying good bye to the huge rush. At around 12:30PM one of the other friends checked the ticket and pointed out that we reserved the ticket for the same day and the train would leave in an hour at 01:30PM. OMG, we messed up. The 4 guys stared at me angrily thinking that I may have made a mistake on the reservation form. We ran back to the railway station and had to request the people standing in the queue to give us just 5 minutes so that we may talk with the guy sitting on the counter. We asked back for the reservation form and to my happiness there was no mistake, the date of traveling was 20/01/2017 but we got the ticket of 19/01/2017.
The person at counter was a good guy he just smiled, cancelled our ticket and gave us a ticket for tomorrow charging us 80/-.( I think these were reservation charges. And we have to surely pay this if we book ticket in advance) I won't admit that it was his mistake. It was our mistake too that we didn't check the date there on spot (but how could we), the print of the ticket was so bad that the date and other details on the ticket were mixed in other alphabets, as you can still see on the new ticket that there are some words (highlighted in black rectangle) which still cannot be read.
What I would like to say is, though we have have latest type of equipment such as ATVMs, machines for cashless transactions and printers, both the people and the governance doesn't care if they work properly. The wrongly printed ticket could have made my friends thrown out of the train tomorrow.

Nice pics. Timely gauge conversion of Mhow-Khandwa-Akola will lead to this useful Ratlam-Akola-Kacheguda route. It will be a boon for North-South trains, along with Jabalpur-Gondia conversion....

NZB-KCG Demu hauls from PF3 and gets ready to depart as the KCG-NZB Demu arrives at PF2. While the loco is reversed for the just arrived Pune-NZB Passenger at PF1 which is also getting ready for the rake sharing with NZB-Pandarpur Passenger which departs at the same time but in opposite direction of NZB-KCG.

A journey full of connexions :
In urgently i had to travel from Pune to home (Brother's marriage;)). Month was May , Hot scorching sun and vacation time , so getting a confirmed ticket in any direct train was impossible.
Searched Konark , falaknuma , Azad hind and all other trains from Mumbai/Pune/Hyderabad which could leave me near Odisha, but all in vain.
in end , decided to do some Broken journey in Intercity trains as getting confirm ticket in 2S/CC is way easier than 3A/SL.
Itinerary became:-
Secunderabad to Vijayawada : SC Guntur Intercity
Vijayawada to Balasore : Coromandel express in 2A premium tatkal. 2A & 3A PT both were available but 2A was 430 Rs cheaper as compared to 3A ..I got HA coach....hahahaha..Jai ho premium tatkal baba ;)
But i was unable to get confirm ticket for any Pune to Hyderabad/Secunderabad train. I still can not wonder How come i was unable to get a confirm ticket in this 17013 Train also ? LOL..
So now i thought out a plan, To travel in General class from Pune to Begumpet in this train and then go to Secunderabad for boarding Guntur Intercity. Seems bit crazy , but Necessity is mother of Everything.
But i was doubtful for how will i get a seat (specially window seat) in general compartment. Then IRI cam to help. One member told me that go to daund Jn. and from there board the 17014 Hyderabad Pune express. The same rake which arrives Pune , leaves as Return Train 17013 Pune-HYD express from the Platform itself. So just as the crowd alights at Platform in pune , i could get my choice of seat.
Thus , i carried my back pack considering the journey tiredness (trolleys or suitcase will cause me more pain while travelling). I boarded the 10 am Pune Daund Shuttle from Loni station and reached Daund exactly 11:30 am.
Soon after 2-3 minutes i saw a Kazipet Alco coming to Daund and i was confident that its 17014 arriving nearly 10 minutes before time at DD. I chose the 1st general coach after ALCO as after reversal at Pune , this will become the rear end and i will be saved from the black smoke entering into coach. The train reached Pune at 1 pm and soon i was sitting on my perfect Window seat. There was Good amount of crowd boarding from Pune and Majority were Barshi/Osmanabad/Latur people. Train left exactly at 2:15 pm and soon was mps. Again i reached Daund station (2nd time in the same day;)) and still it was 5 min before time. I went and packed some Hot & tasty bread ommlette. Here take care that the this train's Rear coaches comes nearly in the middle of Platform as the rake length is Tiny.
After Daund, it was made to wait for atleast 20 minutes at Bhigwan for a heavy Duty crossing with Pune-SUR Intercity. At bhigwan , there was only 1 seller selling good Bhel-puri. After that train was running quite brilliantly. Soon it was dark and train reached Osmanabad on time. But after that it was literally Crawling. Hardly 30-40 kmph speed was done. By this time train was hardly 60% filled. Just as the Train reached latur , nearly whole compartment got empty. The general compartment was containing hardly 30-40 % people. At Latur , there was only 1 food stall with limited snacks. No other option was present. Just purchased some kurkure & biscuits for the night. After that the journey was good. I was expecting some food like samosa or biryani at latur road, but seriously this Latur road Junction was kind of "Ghost station" in night. No lights (They were defective as per told by the SCR Guard who boarded at Latur road junction) was making the environment more dangerous. There was No Food at all anywhere after. Whole night i was unable to sleep properly due to hunger. The train reached Begumpet at 4 am and i bid farewell to this Train. I promised myself to Never ever board again this train and die in hunger again. Instead Buses for pune to hyderabad are way better than this train.
At Begumpet there was a Working Water cooler on Pf 1 near FOB/GRP booth. I drank ,seriously, a huge quantity of water and just calmly sat on the bench. I was waiting for the 1st MMTS 04:50 am for Secunderabad. The ticket counter at Begumpet opened exactly 10 minutes before the arrival of this MMTS. Here i wish to give you a tip, Do save a exact Rs 5 change for begumpet-Secunderabad ticket. Counter people don't have change , even for 20 Rs also. And they say Don't buy ticket if you don't have Rs 5 exact change...After some waiting/Sleeping at begumpet, the MMTS came and i boarded it...
The rest of the journey was Normal and without any problems as it was all reserved. Guntur Intercity is a excellent train and is very very punctual. I was easily able to complete my lunch at comesuem in Vijayawada and then boarded coromandel..
Thats it for this journey experience...
Thanks for reading......

MAS route from SBC was also a regular route for me..
Many times i did break journey with SBC-MAS-HWH-RNC..
I used to take MAS mail from SBC to MAS then King coromandel from MAS to HWH and then HWH-RNC intercity from HWH..
I really enjoyed this route specially when travelling in coromandel as those days coromandel had lesser halts then today.. most of the
times it used to reach BZA before time and after VSKP it always showed its brilliance with its shear aggression.. If i say honestly i used to do this break journey only to get an opportunity to travel in coromandel..

Same with me....When i used to stay in pune , just to travel in Coromandel , i used to break journey at BZA. Some times direct Pune to BZA or else majority times Pune to HYD to BZA....;)
Coromandel got som many halts , but still its a king between VSKP and HWH....At night between VSKP-KUR , the coaches literally are shaken off due to heavy speed.
