cdatausersdefappsappdatainternetexplorertempsavedi.jpgHow the delay of this train increases in Hospet Vasco stretch shown by this pic. Are they giving freight trains priority over this train during crossings ?

And the stuff continues it's never reaching Vasco ontime NTES never updates arrival at Vasco but last updates are given at Sankval which implies that train is late at VSG always by around 1 hour. The delay starts rising from Hubli and sometimes Guntakal itself. This train was degraded from SF to Exp and still fails to maintain schedule especially in SWR.

Bypasses vskp and does well in scr territory. But it is delayed at both destinations. Freights earn more than this stinking train

Does well between HWH to GTL mostly arrives Howrah 15 minutes late which is acceptable but 1.5 hours delay at Vasco ?
Train may be stinking but still has huge rush. SWR should run it ontime.

I would say this train does good in all zones it travels except SWR
Not much problem with 18048 maybe due to held up at outers arriving 15 minutes late at Howrah but still it can be considered as ontime arrival but 1+ hours delays at Vasco end for 18047 are serious issues.
I would say this train does good in all zones it travels except SWR.

Since past 7 to 8 years EMDs have completely taken over freight traffic here so GOC WDG4s may come but Alcos No.

No they go towards Hubli with the slip portion whereas a GY WDG3A hauls Goa exp to Vasco but I was speaking about freights and EMDs and PUNE WDG4 twins do come to Vasco with BOXN rakes.

Sir I am good at what ever place I am. Aapko batane ki jarrorat nahin hain. Maine isliye aise likha ki ek taraf aap duronto bolte ho upar se usko stops diye ho. Duronto ka matlab hota hain non stop between two stations with technical stops in between. I mind my own work. Itna gussa accha nahin hain sirji. Is tarah se aap reply karoge to nahin chalega IRI mein. Sabhyata se baat kijiye nahin to mujhe #FM se aapko block karne ke liye sifarish karni padegi.

A brief trip report of a brief trip in one of my most favorite train.
Date of journey 28 September 2014.
Coach S5.
From Miraj Junction to Sanvordem but reservation till Vasco.
Arrived at Miraj Jn in Kolhapur Sangli evening passenger train. Had dinner at a nearby hotel. We were a group of 4 devotees on a short pilgrimage tour to Pandharpur, Narshingwadi and Mahalakshmi Temple at Kolhapur returning to our home in Goa. Out of us 4 three were to get down at Sanvordem and only one member till Vasco. After two hours wait announcement was made for both 12779 & 12780 at around 22.25 that train is arriving soon. After around 20
...

to 25 minutes of wait 12780 finally arrived behind Twin Pune WDM3D and WDM3A combo both in orange livery at the same time 12779 arrived from other end but could not spot its link although I'm sure it was a Twin Alco combo too due to its heavy chuggs. My train arrived on platform 3 whereas NZM bound train was on platform 1.
As usual in long distance IR trains W/L passengers had occupied all of our seats 2 UBs, 1 MB and 1 SUB. After a trouble of awekening those people from a deep sleep we finally settled ourselves on our berths. Train departed Miraj Jn at 23.00 late by half an hour. Train picked up good speed after the departure the alcos were chugging pretty hard which was very much audible far away in my S5 coach. Got a good sleep but for hours which was broken by an EMD combo hauled BOXN but didn't know where I was but when we neared the end of the BOXN rake there was a hard humming sound of none other than triple EMDs banking the rake and I realised that I was in the Braganza ghat section and the freight was halted for crossing and my downhill train was halted for the mandatory brake testing followed in Ghat sections. Slept again and woke up at Kulem once again due to two uphill BOXN rakes hauled by EMD combos awaiting starter. Once my train made a halt the BOXN next to my train got a starter and could very well enjoy the EMD music both of horns and the locos and as usual even this one was banked by a triple EMD consist which is nothing new here. Had a look at the second one awaiting a starter and also the rake of Kulem Vasco passenger parked at its usual spot. After a 15 minutes halt my train got a go signal and when i reached the end of the station saw that the second freight was indeed waiting more for bankers rather than a starter and no more triple EMDs were visible in nearby vicinity.
Train picked up good speed but not good enough to cover the one hour delay finally arrived Sanvordem at 6.00 late by around one hour we bid farewell to our Vasco bound member and deboarded the Super express took a bus to village and that was a sweet end to our brief pilgrimage trip.
Regarding the rush the UR coaches were jam packed as usual and even the sleeper coaches were fully occupied there were many waitlist and even unreserved passengers in my coach.
Overall the coach was clean and well maintained. And out of the 4 toilets 3 including the western one were clean whereas the 4th one " My God someone had loose motions in the coach and that too very bad"��.
Speed was good but was actually 57 minutes late at SVM in reality but in the virtual world of NTES it was only 49 minutes late at SVM.
As per NTES it reached VSG only 20 minutes late but I'll have to confirm the actual delay from our VSG bound 4th member.
No experience of pantry since it was a short overnight trip.
I'm sorry if I have made any grammatical mistakes in the above trip report.
Thank you guys ��.
