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 . . .

Amarkantak Exp is preferable cuz of suffecient buffer timings and one can get telescopic tickets .

HWH ASN route ki fastest ICF traino mein se ek hai ye. HWH DHN 61 kmph avg hai jisme HWH ASN 81 kmph avg hai . But CIC mein aate hi band baj jaati hai iski . Anyways kam se kam punctuality toh improve hai pehle se. JBP max 1 - 1•5 hrs delay . Thoda bahut speedup to kar hi sakte hai doubling & electrification ke chalte. Halts bahut hai iske , max bilkul bekar , koi pax board nahi karta . Enha turant hatana chahiye.

If there were an award for " The least active DRM on twitter !", I am pretty sure DRM-DHN would surely end up on the podium....
This is probably the second tweet he has posted since joining... x:D
BTW....this tweet promises some good news for the CIC section!
Goods trains and passenger services to run under electrified section soon...from GHD to MQX soon!
that by 2018 even SGRL gets electrified!!!

7th July,
Renukut (RNQ) to Delhi
Booked Sleeper ticket on the date of journey from Ramgarh cantt (since general quota ends there), boarding at Renukut.
Arrived 1 hr late. There was no indication which
side S 13 will be, near the engine or near the guard van. Forgot to ask at the counter, and vendor too was confused.
2 min halt is insufficient to get to one's coach within time. This is the longest train in this route!
My coach was almost empty. Hardly 30 people were there.
I directly went to sleep and woke up only after it had crossed Kanpur . I had hoped to take some refreshments at ALD or CNB and also something to read. Since i overslept, the journey proved boring in the end.
This rake was poorly maintained. Cleanliness average to poor.
No charging points, near the berths, in my coach. It was there in S5 or S6.
Fortunately train was not very late, reached delhi at around 6pm if i remember correctly
Platform 2 has started operating but furnishing is still left to be done. Moreover the overhead stairs that has been newly built on this platform to goto ticket counter/EXIT, is very narrow. If crowd is coming from one direction, you can hardly cross the other side. I have never seen such narrow overbridge at any station. Don't know whether it was paucity of fund or money has gone into somene's pocket!
moreover there is no Sleeper class waiting hall at Renukut! Though there is 1st class waiting room. Not unexpected in CIC section though!

Yes , No station has coach indication boards after DTO till ALD and i agress that the FOB is very narrow at rnq . If it arrived ANVT 6 pm then you are lucky , i had always de-boarded this train after 20:00 .And in return , once at 3pm and twice at 5 pm and after that always around 9 PM or even more late . This train gets detained at Due to platform issues at ALD for loco change . .
I had been ANVT atleast 5 times and RNQ 25- 27 times by this train.
