ONCE A PRINCE NOW AMONGST RUINS:-
Venue:- Howrah Jn
Wednesday, the countrywide Trade Union had severely disrupted local train services. Trains ran empty, passengers were little and the usually busy HWH was unusualy deserted.
I had reached HWH at 13:00 hours quite early as I had to catch the 12339 UP Coalfield Express to DHN, later that evening.
I had just entered in, platform number 12, the usually busy platform was surpringly bevoid of people. Then and there I spotted the abandoned, unwanted and deserted rake of the once running 1st DD AC express of the country, the Howrah-Dhanbad Double Decker Express!
I happened to ask a friend of my uncle who is a loco pilot in DHN....
Primary Maintainence of Black Diamond shared by DHN & HWH both. There is no need for secondary maintainence, as whatever the need may be both divisions are entirely entitled to suffice the train with.
As for Coalfield/Agnibeena/Shantiniketan, HWH does primary maintainence every alternate day, while DHN takes care of secondary maintainence the other alternate day. If DHN senses something off, it is entitled for PM as well. For eg, if some coach isn't functioning as well as it should, it is duly cared for and if required suitably replaced!
ASN is not responsible for anything,
Exactly What I said ! :) I actually have sources in DHN Depot they Clearly said there is No Such Hard and fast rule against CF and BD Basically Both has PM at LLH but DHH is equally eligible if any problem arises in between HWH and DHN then it has to be cured at DHN only !!
So, you have source in DHN depot as well. That is great. Btw, Black & Coalfield are great intercity trains, and their well-being is of great importance to both HWH & DHN.
As I told earlier that ECR and ER ar Bookish Terms in case of BD and CF because they Equally belong to both ER and ECR !
Nicely put....I think it more as an ECR & ER bromance, although technically ER is ECR's mother/father!!!
Gess the train and the station?
