Rameswaram bound 18496 Bhubaneswar - Rameswaram Weekly Express skipping POTI with TNP WDM-2 at a steady speed.
It was taken on 25 April.
There are very few trains of IR departing at exact 1200 hrs from originating station...
Any more additions?
even its RSA partner BBS_PDY departs at same time...
Also BBS-TPTY/BBS-MAS departs by 12 noon.
How will it be if RMM BBS and PDY BBS is extended to howrah
Howrah will get pdy connectivity and also Rameswaram by keeping BBS in GNWl
I endorse fully for extension to HWH.
RMM to howrah can be good connectivity
PDY is already connected with HWH.
Also PDY/RMM-BBS being ECOR train, it is difficult to extend beyond BBS.
just a thought sir.. in indian rail anything is possible
If extended to HWH it can be made tri-weekly.
but i dont think its possible in anyway..
i think our east coast rly will not be interested..
it won't be extended to HWH
HWH already has a train to PDY as aurobindo exp
only HWH-RMM EXP should be introduced.
just my opinion sir not other wise
Better to start new train from HWH to RMM. It will run full.
BBS also need some trains. If I remember correctly BBS-PDY was extended to HWH and renamed Aurobindo exp.
Going to travel in this train. How will be maintenance and want to know if Charging pins are available if not will have to carry charge bank
Just average. Dont expect anything out of a BBS bound train.
charging avl in some coaches of sl ,
carry power bank, hand sanitizing lotion etc.
I have booked in 2AC. Will have to see how Ecor maintains
SL class is bad. AC coaches are decent. Old coaches.
Speed will be suparb ... not much neat
in 2AC charging points will be available.
good train to travel till bza seats avl after chart too from bza u can take link trains to other areas
One of the rare weekly trains which have GNWL for VSKP. Now big test by step mother.
This train starts at 19:10 just after VSKP-MAS 19:00 but reaches MS early. Its having 23 coaches that to GNWL for VSKP. So its natural people pick this train first.
Friday demand from vizag is comparatively very less towards chennai. So one shot two birds with friday start from VSKP. It wont get much demand as within 10 min another train which is express with less fare and also reach metro city chennai 1 hr earlier.
Lets see how VSKP-MAS new weekly pass this test. Will it get demand ?? or not will be know in 2-3months
Good that you brought this to notice venkat ji;
let me ask a SPT/PSA/CHE stoppages for this BBS-RMM exp to EcoR as VSKP-MAS runs on same day;
all weeklies runs on same slot too bbs-tpty ,bbs-pdy etc and vskp was not there , it was added later so your SPT/psa/che may has less chances
Ya do u r work. Many seats filling at VSKP only

How far is chennai Egmore from chennai Central ?
this is revised fare card for prepaid auto at chennai central. you can calculate for egmore it may come around 26-28 rs max.
Don't take auto from the suggestions and comments you see. They will charge you 100 to 150rs to take you to chennai Egmore.
Chennai Park is just opposite to chennai central. Don't ask auto wala route, they will say, they will take you and charge rs 60 by taking you little round about(my friend had this experience, when he first came to chennai).
Unless and untill you know local langauge, cheap auto travel in chennai is tough..
chennai central rly station is visible if u were in egmore station.most probably about half or 1 km.
as i said. don't take regular auto. regular auto wala will charge too much. instead take prepaid auto and reach egmore without problem and cheap also.
yes its often happen with me... chennai's auto walas loots a lot.
wo to kahin bhi lootate hi hain customer ko. delhi ho ya bangalore ya chennai ya mumbai. prepaid auto wale kaise lootate hain wo samajh nahi aya mujhe.
I am not exactly sure but one possible way could be,asking an additional pay out on top of the prepaid rates.I say that because i have not taken a prepaid auto @ Chennai Central for a long time so i am not exactly sure if that happens down there but i am pretty sure is that the autowalas @ Central are highly reluctant to take a pax to Egmore for a throwaway price.They want some additional add ons along with the actual fare but there is one incident that happened to me when i was in Kolkata last year.I was going from Howrah to Esplanade and i got myself a prepaid taxi,everything was fine but as i was getting down @ Esplanade,the taxi driver asked me if i was willing to pay something extra.......so,may be that's one thing that could happen.He was pretty vocal in his demands not aggressive or
this is why prepaid is different then regular auto wala. prepaid auto booth have rules and regulations and is run by govt. those who agree to it they only run their auto as prepaid others just wait for such customers who fall in trap. in prepaid you pay at the booth and take receipt and give it to auto wala in the end. auto wala can then encash the receipt in lieu of money. he is not supposed to ask anything more then that but then its individual's wish to pay little extra or not. and moreover, if any prepaid auto wala deny to go to any destination then he can not remain at same place for next customer. he has to go back in the end of the queue and wait for his turn. customers will anyways come and take any other auto. this is why people prefer prepaid
Is mamle mai sabse acche mumbai ke auto wale hai... hats off service... imandari ki kamai ekdum :-)
I used to enjoy the morning at Chennai
It hardly takes 15 minutes
Rameswaram bound 18496 Bhubaneswar - Rameswaram Express crosses POTI with TNP WDM-3a in lead !!
Yup it is really funny !!
Sahi me sun ke aisa hi lag rha hai ki iska gala baitha hua hai !!
This is scheduled to depart from BBS 4.15 mins late today
Train is Rescheduled.even Prasanthi rescheduled to leave BBS at 12:00.
now rescheduled by 6 hrs what is the necessity to reschedule so much its the origin station
I think it's due to Late running of pairing rakes. now both up nd down prasanthi's are running horribly late.
