******** 3-Phase The True Power Of IR *******
Just one WAP4 left :D
The loco allocation list is probably getting updated right now. Will 25051 roll out tonight? Let's find out :D
Abhi 502 Bad Gateway Dikha Rahe hain...
12001 , 12002 , 12003 , 12004 , 12011 , 12012 , 12013 , 12014 , 12017 , 12018 all have RSA source: ICMS :P
All daily Shatabdi get managed by Spare Rake for weekly Maintenance Break!!
It covers bth ASR/Kalka Shatabdi also!!
Only Kathgodam, CNB & CDG Shatabdi do have Dedicated Rake!!
NDLS Based shatabdi has RSA between each other :P
No..its nt this way!! Thy dnt hav RSA in themselves bt Spare Rake do run as each one, each weekly break day for them!!
Say a Rake exist..spare!! Hypothetical Scenario in whch Spare get utilized:
Mo as BPL, Tu as LKO, We as AII, Th as DDN, Fr as ASR, Sa as KLK & Su break for Spare Rake!!
As ASR/Kalka Shatabdi based @ ASR/DDN dnt hav weekly break, thy too get managed via Spare Rake out @ NDLS only...whch means for 4 days, one LHB Rake free to run as SPL!!
LKO Tatkal Spl mayb that Rake getting utilized for limited time period, without weekly break schedule for ASR/KLKA based Shatabdi!!
according to ICMS, there are 6 rakes for above mentioned 5 trains and these is irregular swapping of rakes for maintenance
What you have pointed is the ideal way to do it.But most definitely, there will be delays in the maintenance and some cases, irregular maintenance and problems in procuring spares for repairs etc, because of which most probably there will be an irregular RSA (with no particular schedule) between all of them.
When 6 Rake exist for 5 daily & same day return pair..its simply scheduled weekly maintenance break..as for Shatabdi Rake, the delay only happens in winter & thn too the ongoing/return Rake remain running late (nt getting any haphazard RSA even thn)!!
To keep it simple, weekly schedule must get followed, as it seems perfect mode..cz just imagine..as it is will b how mch cumbersome along with diff Rake sizes & CC!!
If u recount, LKO/ASR Shatabdi use to run @ fix day as ICF Rake every week (although i dnt remember the day)!!
Loco realignment at Jalandhar City..as Shatabdi is following diverted route from Beas to Tarn Taran and then to Amritsar.
Nice photos... I've seen AC trains like Shatabdis and Garib Raths packed with passengers at JUC/LDH. Even the AC Coaches on Amritsar/Jammu bound trains from Calcutta go into Waiting List. It's about time that IR launches a Fully AC SF Train from Howrah to Amritsar and/or Jammu via Dhanbad - Gaya so that the AC Pax load from the existing trains comes down... Gee ;-D
check out mine IMG train: /train/37959
I took first class unreserved ticket to board Amritsar Shatabdi from Ambala to Amritsar
Is this valid to board Shatabdi right?
i paid 230 as a difference fare
Yes you are right, if seat not available in train then this ticket will be invalid and you will be treat as a ticket-less passenger and you need to pay with penalty
Yet there are many rail fans who doesn't know there is still one electric hauled ICF shatabdi left running from NCR. That is the morning service, weekly "12031 / Amritsar Shatabdi Express" runs only on Thursdays.click here
Aapne ye video camera se banai ya mobile phone se??? And iska size kitna hai????
Is it possible to book a ticket for a kid of 4 years age by showing age as 5 years so he get full seat
Can TTE ask for age proof?
Is there a rule book on this?
I was more interested if a Railway rule exists.
Personally I would recommend everyone avoid this as possible. God forbidden - It will be a nightmare if train accident happens and lifes are lost and some kids are wrongly aged more.
However railway must consider allotting seats to kids less than 5 years if passenger wants to pay, specially in Class like CC
is Dinner served in this train for Passengers deboarding at LDH?
Thanks, I can confirm this now after I travelled. Dinner served after sirhind
PS: poor food as always keeping standard of indian railways
