Today reached destination 'Radhikapur', delayed by just 2:45 hrs.
This is the best timing of this train since it's first run.
Today it created a new record:
12488 reached Jogbani just 2.15 hrs late and
22488 reached Radhikpur just 2.39 hrs late.
It was a good day for Seemanchal Express.
12487 also made new record, reached ANVT just delayed by 1.27 hrs. Previous best was 2.15 hrs late.
less freight traffic in NCR because of derailment in grand chord :-)
is there any maintenance work going on between allahabad and mugalsarai or just another BERMUDA triangle? look at the arrival/departure of 12506 and 12488 from these stations for the last few days. how can a superfast train takes 7-10 hrs for just 150 kms??????? either change the schedule (timetable) of these 'superfast' trains or stop thinking about BULLET trains and start working on arrival /departure of trains. Poor passengers...................
Now it has become a regular thing for both trains.
And both trains are now in PT (Premium Tatkal) category for the great service.
and think how they fool people by charging rs 45/30/15 as superfast charge on each ticket. IR should make timetable according to the timetable of RAJADHANI EXP. as they have to clear the tracks for these trains. Must change the status from SUPERFAST to MAIL/EXP.
Agree bro.. Now even passengers keep this in mind before booking their tickets in these 2 great SF trains that delay of anything between 8-10 hours is normal.. Anything more than 8-10 hours is problematic..
And irony is that in spite of 10-12 hours of delay everyday, these 2 train's tatkal is one of the very high demand in IR network, so in short passengers don't have any other option but to travel in these 2 great trains.. "झक मार के"
and IR will not look into late running of these trains as long they get their "PT" quota full at "अंधाधुंध fare"
Jai ho IR!!
is there any way to sue IR on late running of trains specially when there is no fog/no accidents/no maintainence etc.???
:) you can't do anything bro..
so better try and book ur tickets and travel in 12424, this is how most of the passengers of NFR regions travel..
Start avoiding these 2 trains (NE and Seemanchal).. :P
Looking at the Time table, Rajdhani or other high speed cannot be the reason of its delay..it departs from Delhi in morning, and arrives in the evening.
Agree.. No Rajdhani or Shatabdi is the reason for the delay of these 2 trains.. But Delay is caused "ऐवे ही" (without anyone's fault b/w ALD-MGS)..
what will u say about 12367/12393 and many others? by saying changing timetable not restricted to only 12506 or 12488.
Let's hope something improves one day...
Made a record today by reaching destination only 2:15 hours late.
why don't IR makes its travel time 33 hrs officially on time table instead of 25 hrs. this will help in reducing frustration among poor passengers and may be it also solves congestion problems in delhi - howrah route. seriously......
The strange fact is, this train runs on a slot which is just the opposite of the so-called congested slot. But still trains like this and Sikkim Mahananda end up getting delayed by magnitudes wayy higher than the ones running on the busy times. *scratches his head* O.o
The saturation level of Delhi Howrah route is at such a peak that there is no slot which can be called empty slot ...When Passenger trains are not there dre are more than enough no of freights to congest the route...
Ye kabhi time pe chalti???
9hrs late approaching MGS
