Gusty WAP-4 powering Sealdah Jalianwala Bagh Superfast torments through Madhusudanpur at MPS!!!
.
.
Almost bang on time running 12380 Amritsar (ASR)- Sealdah (SDAH) Weekly JALIANWALA BAGH/ (Extended) W.B. SAMPAK KRANTI Express headed by a honking 22770 HWH shed WAP-4 (ex. BRC, GZB) cruises past Jhapandanga station on HB Chord enroute at a good speed.
This is my favourite non-elite (Shatabdi/ Rajdhani/ Duronto/ Garib Rath) train, and is the second best train (among 5 trains) to travel between these two cities. The train has only 10 halts (9 in the Up direction) and a couple of technical halts (at an average of one halt after every 31 stations) and takes less than 31 hours
...

to cover almost 2000 kms (at an average of one halt after every 211 kms). The coaches are very well maintained, and is one of the very few trains in IR to have OBHS (On Board Housekeeping Service) facility. Pantry is available, and food quality, quantity and variety is simply mind blowing.. Veg Meal, Egg Meal, Fish Meal, Chicken Meal, Chicken Biryani, Egg Biryani, Paneer Biryani, South Indian food, Punjabi food, Egg Noodles, Chicken Noodles, Chicken Fried Rice, Veg Pulao and numerous other foods are available from the pantry along with the foods offered by the vendors (have personally experienced during my journey a few months back). The HCPV gets detached at Delhi, where the train halts for 50 minutes.
One unique thing about this train is that the train does not have an exclusive name.. The display boards show the name as JALIANWALA BAGH Express (but another Jalianwala Bagh Express runs between Amritsar and Tatanagar), official IR site shows the name as W.B. Sampark Kranti Express (but another W.B.S.K. runs between Sealdah and Old Delhi Junction), and in most of the stations, the announcement is made as simple Amritsar- Sealdah Superfast Express. So three names for a single train!!
The train follows the Amritsar- Jalandhar- Ludhiana- Ambala- Old Delhi- Kanpur- Allahabad- Mughal Sarai- Gaya- Dhanbad- Asansol- Burdwan- Sealdah route.
On Board Housekeeping Services (OBHS) scheme has been envisaged in all Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto and important long distance Mail/Express trains for frequent cleaning of toilets, doorways, aisles and passenger compartments during the run of the trains.
The scheme has so far been introduced in 110 pairs of trains on Indian Railways. Another 280 pairs of trains have been identified for introduction of this scheme.

Refer : /blog/post/1414401
I am glad to see that, the ill fated "A-1" coach #ER09054 has been replaced by #ER98078.
Since, both the trains are using the same rake, so this can be assumed that, finally, the complaint worked after 2.5 months.......:)...is it so or any other reason ?
Now Mr. Railfan86 can travel by this train...

Awww.... so sweet of you that your efforts may have got the entire 2nd AC Coach replaced with a fit one just regarding my and other passengers' concern. I just hope that ER has repaired that old coach before attaching it in another train since lives of all trains' passengers are valuable. This snap is sparkling and I always love the square windows. I don't know why but this train reminds me of the great services I use to enjoy in the Paschim (Delux) Express during my childhood days between Bombay (Mumbai BCT) and Punjab. I think that this Sealdah - Amritsar Jallianwalabagh Express should be made to run at least 5 days a week with a dedicated rake.... many IRI Members have praised the food quality and catering services of this train... Gee :-D

Aha... the square shaped windows look cute in this panorama view snap of the 2nd AC Coach. I remember that Arkya told me on IRI some months back that he had traveled in this train which was great at food n catering but low on getting signal priority (Opposite in case of Durgiana Exp). This 12379 Exp gets a huge beating by some Rajdhani Trains en route. Which Raj Exp trains had overtaken your train at Rooma? :-)

Glimps of "Old is gold". Chain arranngement as such, not seen by me before. The dustbin was not an integral part of basin. The window inside cover was movable also. It was a 1998 made coach.

1998 Coach of the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai days.... the square windows were made since ICF use to follow the Vacuum Brake (VB) AC Coaches look for it's Air Brake (AB) AC Coaches Shells later also... now all the Non-LHB Coaches have rectangular windows made by RCF, Kapurthala and ICF, Perambur... :-)

Got fish meal in lunch today.....pantry boy informed that, they loaded fish from Kanpur due to shortage of chicken.......taste was excellent. Members can opt for it while traveling...it costs Rs. 150. The egg byriani was good...but eggs were only boiled..not fried, coats Rs. 90. All these are for your information. I enjoyed a lot.

Ascending up the Gurpa- Gujhandi Ghat section in the Chota Nagpur Hills: ASR- SDAH Express
.
.
Almost 5 hours late running 12380 Amritsar - Sealdah Superfast (Jalianwala Bagh/ W.B. Sampark Kranti) Express headed by 22565 Howrah shed WAP-4 cruises past the Grand Chord line and in the process approaches the Gurpa- Gujhandi Ghat Section while crossing the Chota Nagpur Hills enroute. After Paharpur comes the station Gurpa, from where the tracks stard climbing up the gradient. And in the video, the same is seen. The Ghat section comprises of numerous huge curves, small bridges and viaducts, three tunnels and an awesome scenic environment. But due to area being a good hunting ground for the Maoist, the lines have either TSR or PSR

placed all over. It is the reason why the train moves at a moderate speed of around 60- 80 km/hr. Though the Ghat section is not steep enough for the requirement of extra locos for passenger trains, but freights move with an additional loco, which does the duty of a banker while ascending, and braker while descending. Location falls on the border of Bihar and Jharkhand. While Gurpa falls in Bihar, Gujhandi falls in Jharkhand.
