Its a huge huge surprise.
2s and cc of intercity train getting into WL on day of ARP. Here it is for 23rd of January.
GNWL# 23 / WL# 23 GNWL# 39 / WL# 34
I usually get confirm ticket for intercity around a couple of weeks ago. Here, its full with two months to go.
Surprisingly both janshatabdi and shatabi in the afternoon on the very same day are almost vacant. Why is there so much rush in morning intercity?
People going onward to Puri for holiday as 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th Jan are consecutive holidays in West Bengal.
I think its due to Saraswati Puja . All trains from and to HWH gets booked same day.
but sir, all other train like janashatabi and shatabdi are almost empty. any particular reason for rush in morning only?
People of WB, wants to reach Puri in morning. Shatabdi is the last option for most of the travellers.
In the meantime, this is my pnr./pnr/post/1285625
Have your say.
Those 2 trains are not generally preferred by travellers to Puri. Their first choice is any of the O/N trains failing which Dhauli is the last option.
23-26 are holidays. So, most travellers will set off on 22nd night. They prefer to reach Puri on 23rd not to spend the whole day in train. So, those did not get tickets for 22nd night's train, now are booking in 23rd morning's train. Some are reserving seats upto BBS in other O/N trains on 22nd.
12895 HWH PURI W EXP
Currently SL: RAC 101
Offlink alert !!! BSL WAP 4 #22683 hauled Dhauli Exp into HWH unlike its usual SRC link.
Yupp I saw a BSL P4 for the very first time at HWH !
LTT Puri gets an Alco after Raipur I guess !! God knows that how a BSL P4 got there. If it was with Bombay mail,Geetanjali,Duronto,Gyan etc then it can be understood but Dhauli ! :O BTW the BSL P4 must be sent back by now so there must be another Offlink with a Mumbai bound train from HWH.
MGS links towards BZA/VSKP ?? I doubt that but surely KGP has a few for the North bound trains from BBS/PURI.
Here I once got to see a MGS P4 at KGP /blog/post/1181189/0
12821 Dhauli Express should be extended till bam as bbs shatabdi and Jan shatabdi
Auto-Archived due to Objections.
How much rush in Dhauli in 2S and CC class?
Then will I get a seat by TTE in CC if I don't book in advance from BBS?
If seat avl he will allot u berth.
Try current reservation too
HWH WAP 4 #22863 with BBN J shatabdi and SRC WAP 4 #22367 with Dhauli SF Exp. yesterday's Sri jagannath Exp got a huge #offlink
as MGS P4 but I was unable to catch due to heavy rains in the evening at HWH !!
The rakes on this train are Gitanjali Express why they share rakes?
not dhuali i asked about Sri Jagannath Express
Because of the timings of GITANJALI if they have to given a separate rakes then gitanjali need a extra coach and 18409 also
Gitanjali is a weird train! Not a single station of EcoR belong to the TT and still the train is of ECOR. actually only coaches are of Ecor. Everything else is governed by SER only !!
agree Gitanjali is wired train but coaches is dirty old and not well maintained compare to Jananeshwari it is the best train always run on TT if SER provide coaches then maintenance and other scheduled task will gone on way also.
MY ticket is confirmed after chart preparation for
BBS TO HWH for tomorrow's train.
But in the last it's written NC
What does NC Mean???
U are a fool with no knowledge..
plz do not post if u don't know..
NC = No Choice i.e. it is not a window seat.
I have to catch SHM PNBE DURONTO after alighting from this train.
Can you suggest if it is 100% sure to catch Duronto to Patna.
I will be catching Dhauli at BBSR...
------------------------------ TWO AC CHAIR CARS OF 12822 DN DHAULI EXP ARE HOTCAKE TO THE TRAVELERS RETURNING FROM PURI -----------------
Just see this abnormality.
Case 1: Availability of 12822 Dn Dhauli Exp(ScreenShot Attached)--------- Here you will find RUSH only in AC Chair Cars. Normal Coaches have flooded with availability.
Case 2: Availability of 12278 Dn Puri Howrah Shatabdi Exp(Screen Shot Attached)-------- Train flooded with availability till August 2015.
Now why such anomalies in availability status of these 2 trains running between HWH/SDAH and Puri Whereas other night trains from HWH to Puri has normal rush in all classes ?
The Puri Shatabdi can be a good train in HWH Puri Route.
Total number of booking is more in Shatabdi. There are 9 more CC compartments in it.
But Timing is not that good
ac chair car coaches are dirty n not well maintained at all. Doesn't go well with such an important train i think
This train rest almost one day in puri ,still rake and coaches dirty
