12738.jpgToday i am trying to book the Gowthami(12738) train tickets for 12th Jan 2015 for pongal festival. While i tried to book the tickets at 8am suddenly it went to regret mode at 08.04am. Whats going on there? is it hawala?
Please find the screenshot with time-stamp. :(
08:00 am Avl 539 SL
08:04 am REGRET/WL401
so 539+RAC130+WL401=1070 tickets were gone in 4 minutes.

Nothing surprising about this. For Diwali, tickets went to regret in a minute. Its the general demand in this route during the festive periods. With improved IRCTC, you dont stand a chance if you wait for 4 mins.

¤¤ Gowthami Confusion, n Telugu Babu ¤¤
2 years back when I was in Hyderabad, i boarded the city bus from Begumpet around 2pm. In the bus I asked Conductor twice to let me know whenever Secunderabad station bus stop comes.
On the bus there were two ladies who said me something in Telugu, but since I didnt respond as I thought they arent saying to me. There was another lady in bus who knew Hindi also. She translated me whatever that ladies were saying to me.

GR is the best train to travel to rjy

Sep 01 2014 (1:57PM)
Does any one know if this train was on right time at RJY/COA in the last two years? It lost the tag of favorite train for RJY/COA
SCR completely ruined this train by giving preference to other trains / unnecessarily holding at stations. It is only a dream for us now reaching RJY /SLO/COA on time or at least half an hour late. Today it reached RJY at 7.45 AM and last three times i boarded this train i could not reach before 7.30 AM. Does any one know if this train was on right time at RJY/COA in the last two years? It lost the tag of favorite train for RJY/COA. GR is the best train to travel to rjy

Today, my mother came to CCT in Gowthami. She said, the train started at 10pm from SC and arrived CCT at 10am. She also complained that train was maintained poorly, compared to previous months. She is a regular traveler to SC.

Gowtami reaching "CCT" on time is a miracle. The best I have seen is 7.05 am in the last 1 year. Gowtami gets low priority once it leaves Vijayawada. Secondly, in the above case, the problem could be the late arrival at BZA, and that carried up to CCT.

Pictures from Yesteryear's Golden Memories.
.
Yesterday was Searching for Some Old Docs and also found a Old Photo Album and started browsing through it & Incidentally Found the Snaps I was looking for from Long Back. The Inaugural Pics of then "47- KAKINADA-SECUNDERABAD EXPRESS (GOUTHAMI EXPRESS).
.
Pic 1. Me a Small Kid aged around 4 Years on the Extreme Right Posing with My Uncle & Sister in-front of the Loco ready to do the Honours of the Inaugural run. Beautifully Decorated WDM2 of KZJ (Possible) Shed. My Dad was Clicking the Snap.

$ Instead of Posing to the Cam I was watching towards the Loco, Seems Inborn liking to the trains from Tender Age :)
.
Pic 2. LP In charge of the Loco Number "18822" WDM2 of KZJ (Possible) Shed.
.
Pic 3. Guard on Duty of the Day and the SLR Coach. You can notice the Words Written with Chalk
“47 of 03-10-87". Which Gives the Inaugural Run Date.
.
Thought of Sharing these Pics of Memory with you all..Hope You Like them and do excuse me for the Clarity of Pics presented them as available.

Thanks for providing the link,SRG.I was away from my system for the past 5 days or so.......was not aware that SRG has become "Active" all of a sudden and boy what!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a way to start of the "Month" by uploading something that truly is so close to your "heart".I guess,we owe it to the guy who created the "Camera" for enabling us to "Relive" some of the most "treasured" memories of our lives.

Looking at those snaps,it's no wonder you are a member in "here" and yeah.......you are indeed........handsome! :)
