March 22, 2014
Train: 12434 H. Nizamuddin Chennai Rajdhani Express
On a chilly march morning, the Chennai bound Rajdhani Express exits from Nagpur pf2, led by LGD WAP7 30318. AS we move out, we can see the Nagpur Station coming to life, with people waiting for the early morning arrivals and departures. Its a merry run till Sewagram Jn., where we are halted on the Mainline between pf2& 3. During this time, the Dhanbad bound Deekshabhoomi express departs and proceeds towards Nagpur. After a few mins of unscheduled halt, the signal goes proceed
...
more...
and the Rajdhani switches tracks to curve away towards Balharshah. As the bright early morning sunlight reflects upon the red carriages, the Nagpur bound tri-weekly express from Secunderabad approaches Sewagram for a scheduled halt.
We picked up speed pretty soon and hurried away towards Balharshah. Except for the odd slow down at Tadali Jn., the run was MPS all the way to the CR limits. At Balharshah we were received in pf1 and simultaneously the NDLS bound Grand Trunk Express was received on pf4. After that missed crossing, the Rajdhani departed and darted ahead towards Warangal.
Track maintenance works and OHE works on the northbound mainline, forced us to loop into many stations. And the no. of unscheduled halts that day seemed to be much more than usual. Sirpur, Manchiryal, Ramgundam, Bigusir Sharif, you name it, we are looped. Bellampalli was the most irritating, Kerala express was looped into pf2 for an overtake by us. And even though pf3 was empty, we were made to reverse loop into pf1 and escape from the station, delaying our already delayed Rajdhani by another few mins.
The Key high speed crossings were the New Delhi bound Tamilnadu Express, Andhra Pradesh Superfast Express (now christined as Telengana Express); the Delhi bound Bangalore Rajdhani and the Gorakhpur bound Raptisagar Express and the Lucknow bound Gomtisagar Express. The only significant high speed overtake was that of the Ajni-Kazipet Passenger led by a BZA WAM4.
We entered Warangal horribly late by over 2hrs. NDLS bound Kerala express crossed us here. As we left Warangal, the Kakinada-Shirdi Express entered for a scheduled halt led by an LGD WAP4. After Warangal, the Rajdhani did its best to maintain the 2hr delay all the way till Vijayawada and beyond. At Vijayawada, we met the 2nd longest running train of Indian Railways- the Himsagar express bound for Jammu Tawi. Presently the train is extended to Katra. It was a grueling run to say the least, but every moment was enjoyable.

Hi guys, I am planning a trip from TVC to SVDK coming april (2016) with my family ( Wife & Son ). I need your help in deciding, which train or links would be better for a conformable & memorial journey. I have nailed upon few options, ur valuable inputs will be of great help.
My son will be 4 yr 11 months at the time of travel.
Should I book half ticket for him ?
I
...
more...
was thinking to book so, as it wouldn't be comfortable to sleep together on 3A berth.
If I did so, would there be any issues ??
Class preferred: 3A
Option 1:
Take direct train: Firstly what came to my mind is to take himsagar express ( 16317 ) from TVC to SVDK. But since I have never traveled by this train, I m literally clueless. I have been staying in trivandrum for past 28 yrs, and have always booked for Kerala express or TVC rajdhani, for a visit to NDLS ( My native place ) once a yr or so. Hence this would be a big thing for me.
What bothers me is :
1 Food
2. Cleanness
I have checked IRCTC e catering also, but major stations which this train halts are either not in time period of service or there is no service. So I would be completely relying on pantry car.
Option 2:
Take stoppage at NDLS : Secondly I was thinking of , TVC to NDLS via either kerala express / sampark K Express and then NDLS to SVDK via shri shakti 22461 / uttar s kranti 12445. Although I would be paying extra on tickets, I would be saving a lot of time.
Eagerly waiting for your valuable replies.

buffer maybe. Don't forget that they have an almost 5 yr kid with them, and waiting for hrs may not be ideal. Kerala SK and Kerala express have lesser waiting time than that by TVC raj.

I purposefully neglected TVC raj, I feel 1000 for for food on TVC raj is not justified!!
Also buffer time is more compared to kerala.
Guys, is Himsagar bad option?

such a long journey in a train can be far too much of a stretch for anyone.
a Buffer or waiting period will allow you to stretch your legs a bit, have an actual meal/freshen up and then continue.

Interestingly, if both trains are on time, 12137 will 'overtake' 16317 at Nizamuddin tonight due to the latter's 30 minute halt there (as opposed to the former's 2 minute stop).
