Thanks in Advance !!
Avbl 12 in 3AC on Sat-Oct 10 in 22811/Bhubaneswar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express (via Adra)
from BBS to GAYA.
Doesn't this 22811 Rajdhani has Technical Halt at GMO for 5-10 mins like 22823/Bhubaneswar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express (via Bokaro) ?
I've Planned to book till Gaya i.e BBS to Gaya and will get down at GMO itself. GMO-DHN is 30 KMs.
And VSKP to BBS friday Oct 09 night in 12842/MAS-HWH, 18507/VSKP-ASR or 11019/CSTM-BBS.
Sir, You take YPR-SBP and get down at SBP. Then go for Ispat superfast upto tata/ KGP/ HWH.... From there, u may find some options ..
U can reach faster via HWH
Book in 15929 upto ASN,and take any train from ASN to DHN only 1 hr journey.u can get Tatkal very easily,or normal PQWL may clear easily,much more better than alpuza dhanbad
15929/MS-DBRG is at 12:05 from VSKP. I need in the evening or night. Anyways it also has PQWL16/WL6 (in 2AC), PQWL37/WL24 (in 3AC).
1) 12842/MAS-HWH has RLWL# 29 / WL# 20 (in 2nd AC), RLWL# 14 / WL# 10 (in 3rd AC), RLWL# 4 / WL# 2 (in 1st AC). Even not avl from BZA or MAS.
2) 18646/HYB-HWH has regret / RLWL# 5 (in 3AC) regret / RLWL# 6 (in 2AC). That means this train does not mean for VSKP-HWH. BZA-HWH is also regret. Although it runs empty end-to-end except festive seasons. SC-HWH status is GNWL# 29 / WL# 8 (in 3AC), GNWL# 12 / WL# 2 (in 2AC)
3) 22641/TVC-SHM also has RLWL# 13 / WL# 12
BBS - DHN GR is available from BBS. But from VSKP - BBS, i didn't find suitable trains.
From VSKP to BBS.. you can book for 15929.. from there you can take Garibrath.. I think you have to try for this.. a best option..
With the revised timings & speeding up from October-1, this train is still reaching even further ahead of schedule at Chennai.
Last 3 days reaching Chennai at approx 1:15 am despite delay in departure from Vijaywada.
It is reaching ahead of schedule in Shoranur & also being made to unnecessarily halt at various stations on the way to Ernakulam since it is way ahead of schedule.
Hopefully the railways could do well to make note of the same and further bring down its running time.
RAILFANNING AT MY HOMETOWN!
It was saturday the 25th of July, when I set off for Kolkata. I reached Dhanbad Junction at 10:00 AM so to click some photographs of Dhanbad Junction. I was aiming for the 12988 Ajmer-Sealdah Superfast and planned to avoid the 13152 JammuTawai-Kolkata Express.
The PRS came to life and announced that both of the train were delayed by over an hour. Still wanting to avoid the 13152 I took a stroll along Platform number 1, and clicked a few snaps.
As it can be seen, it was a beautiful overcast morning, with occassional torrential downpour. The station drenched in the rains looked very fresh and was an eye-soother.
Well it is not exactly Sealdah's fault. The confluence of so many railway lines at Dum Dum Jn doesn't make things easy for the Sealdah Control room. Priority is obviously given to the local trains, over the long running trains. However there is always room for improvement.
If HWH can manage surely SDAH can as well!
New Time table for 13351 finally. Speeded up by 1 hr though too much slack still remains. No time change for return train though.
• Alleppey arrival at 19:25
• Chennai arrival at 1:35 am which is a very odd time. Vishakaptnam arrival at 8:55am [speeded up by 1 hr]
• Palakkad arrival at 12:10pm advanced by almost 2 hours. Palakkad to Ernakulam takes almost 5 hours !!!!
• Aluva arrival shown as 3pm and Ernakulam arrival shown as 5:25pm. 2 hours slack for 20km !!! Not too sure if this is a typing error.
New time table can be seen for journeys after October-1 in indian rail.gov site
Believe ALLP arrival is 1820 & not 2020(advanced by 120 minutes). Heard train will leave ERS @ 1630(old timings vacated by SHM - TVC Biweekly Express). Presently 12075 JanSatabdi leaves ERS @ 1725 & not too sure if DHN - ALLP will replace it.
Oh great. Where was this mentioned? In that case it would be even better. Though the indian rail site has got the time as 19:20. Even i was wondering the following
2 hours of slack between Aluva & ERS and also its arrival at 17:20 in ERS which was surprising as that time ERS is choked with trains with lost of arrivals & departures
Old SHM time at ERS was 17.40 I think
There was some news of a small change in time table of this train from October-1.
Any update on the same because the same time is reflecting for departures/arrivals after October ???

Another Rare Collection of AJJ WAP-4
The Western Ghats never fails to charm... WAP4 #22785 of Arakkonam hauling the 13352 Alappuzha-Dhanbad/TATA Express past Ettimadai (in Coimbatore District of Tamil Nadu)

Presently AJJ homes ONLY WAP-1 no WAP-4 as per "Loco Bank" of E-Loco website.
Presently this WAP-4 belongs to Royapuram Shed

My salute to this RED Warrior of IR who serve Indian Railway since 1994 and still continuing it's valuable service. This month is the Last Month for WAP-4 production by CLW. But WAP-4 will be with us till 2040 though it's production will be stopped by CLW.#NoconventionalLoco
Superb Colored Loco.........
One request to you can you tell how many HOG WAP-7 we have as on date in IR including WAP-7 30426 (/blog/post/1587269)
according to me it shouldn't be completely demolished
WAP-4 and WAG-7 are NOT demolished. These Locos will be with us till 2030 I think.
I think CLW will produce their parts in their stores after stopping production of these from the coming month.
But what I can tell you that 90% chance is there to use WAG-7 and WAG-5 for passenger traffic completely in future(Which already has started) as because WAG-9 can handle the Freight sector completely in future.
Not only WAG9 but the new 9000 HP and 12000 HP monsters will also handle freights on DFC.
Adding to your question; As far as I know, there are quite a few locos already present with HOG. But how many trains actually run on HOG? I think the Kalka Shatabdi is run on HOG only, but all the trains with LHB coaches running with P7 that I saw, had the EOGs running.
Absolutely. If EOG(i.e Generator Car) is used in trains hauled by HOG WAP-7 then I don't think HOG WAP-7 is required to be produced if the HOG feature of the Loco is not used in real time situation.
i am travelling with my family in 13352 from salem junction to tiruvallur on next month and my coach column has rqwl/62,rqwl/63,,,,,upto rqwl/67 for six persons,,,,and in my seat/berth column i have rqwl/25 to rqwl/31 for six persons ,,,,,,,,,,,,,nw could somebody plsss say will the ticket can be conformed in future or not????somebody plsss reply soon guyssss
Mostly it will confirm , dont worry
झारखंडको रेलवे बोर्ड ने नई ट्रेन का तोहफा दिया है। 26 कोच वाली यह ट्रेन हटिया से एर्नाकुलम तक चलेगी। यह वेल्लोर होकर एर्नाकुलम (केरल) जाएगी। इसी महीने बोर्ड इसके संचालन का सर्कुलर जारी करेगा। दो महीने पहले रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु से उनके रांची दौरे के दौरान सीएम रघुवर दास
I dont think the news was authentic. Nothing was announced in the monsoon session of parliament . also At least they could have started a special train and later regularized the same
Sijua on the DHN-KTH-CRP sub-section on the CIC line is a great place for railfanning. Trains here travel at a very low MPS, due to underground fire. This section was founded during colonial times in 1880, and in that way it precedes the Grand Chord, which was built in 1903.
At 1880 the Dhanbad-Jharia & the DHN-KTH-PLJE section was built and the tracks were laid down for the purpose of loading coal.Jharia and Katras in those days were tiny kingdoms, while Dhanbad was a small village. The coal in Jharia and Katras were the very best in the country, and as such the British made a deal with the local rulers to construct a railway line to Jharia & Katras. Sitting prettily in between Katras & Jharia, this small village Dhanbad was
Excellent writeup, touching story.
Coal plus methane plus huge pressure leads to slow fire beneath the surface... Agar aap yeh area me raat me jainge to jagah jagah par land me fissure dikhenge aur fire bhi
I live in these area.
The fire is very dangerous. It is right beneath our floor. Often, the land subsides, people die hare.
So you mean to say that jharia had rail connection frm DHN but now abolished......
Doesnt it rain over there to diffuse the fire???
Yes the Dhanbad Jharia rail line had to be scarpped in 2002
How can tiny tit bits of rain extinguish a massive underground inferno, my friend?
I mean during monsoon times
No even monsoon rains are not enough!
Fire has been burning time immorial... I have seen it myself.... Have lived Chas, bokaro dhanbad jharia area... Train speed between bksc and gomoh is very slow
