Jun 14 2015 (8:57PM) Massive Alert ! 12274 New Delhi - Howrah Duronto Express came today with a surprising link !! Lallaguda WAP 7 #30276 was at MPS with Howrah Duronto while Crossing Saktigarh through the UP line The train was horribly late due to some reasons which are unknown to me and I was expecting regular 3 Phaser Loco with Coalfield Superfast Express at that very same slot but then the the real magic got started when Coalfield Was Pushed into Middle Reverse line ahead of Howrah and Sealdah Rajdhanis who were just a little bit late and were behind and Howrah Duronto was allowed in the UP line which was really unusual Now, due to this both the Rajdhanis were pushed to run behind Coalfield Express because the UP line was also booked for Howrah Duronto and all the Four trains were hauled by WAP 7's of LGD,HWH and GZB and all were nonstop till the destination
Massive #Offlink Alert ! 12274 New Delhi - Howrah Duronto Express came today with a surprising link !!

just a little bit late and were behind and Howrah Duronto was allowed in the DN line which was really unusual. Now, due to this both the Rajdhanis were pushed to run behind Coalfield Express because the DN line was also booked for Howrah Duronto and all the Four trains were hauled by WAP 7's of LGD,HWH and GZB and all were nonstop till the destination. What a Mess !! But it was good for me !!! :P :P :P ••• Magic of Eastern Railways was that there were three Rajdhani Class trains and 1 mere Superfast train in between MPS's were 120,110,130,130 but still no train was looped or stopped for OT and all went at Right time. ••• Mobile Users - click here Channel Link - click here ••• Please do remember to subscribe to my channel for more action !! #ab#Archie

Apr 24 2016 (1:28PM) Jharkhand minerals are transported via Rnc-gmo-gaya mgs orRnc-brka-ghd-dos mgs only no use of chuanr chopan route ,, But it is true that mgs has to handle many freights ( Say 240-50 per hour )
Jharkhand minerals are transported via partly via Rnc/dhn-gmo-gaya mgs and mostly dhn/gmo-brka-ghd-dos mgs only no use of chuanr chopan route ,, But it is true that mgs has to handle many freights ( Say 240-50 per hour ) . The chunar chopan route cater only Alumina for hindalco at renukut both finshed and raw materials and coal from singrauli to faizabad & unchahar via varanasi .

New Delhi to Kolkata Train Preference 1) 12302 NDLS-HWH Raj India's first Raj; the ER king is still the first priority for anyone travelling on this route; no questions asked. 2) 12314 NDLS-SDAH Raj ... more...
Taking largely the same route and same timings as the HWH Raj; there is not much difference between the two. Mostly an item of personal preference when booking. 3) 12260 SDAH Duronto India's first Duronto and theoretically taking lesser time any of the Rajdhanis,it still gets lesser priority than the Rajdhanis and may get delayed; still a good option for travelling[pure LHB coaches]. 4)12274 HWH Duronto First train on the list to also have SL coaches; has a good TT between NDLS and HWH, but suffering from lack of priority from controllers; also has hybrid -LHB instead of pure LHB. 5)12304/12382 Poorva Exp Tough choice between this and the legendary Kalka Mail; this wins because of LHB rakes and more punctuality than the Mail(also has better railfanning opportunities since it faces OT by all the east bound Rajdhanis). 6)12324 ANVT-HWH Exp Takes lesser time than the Poorva exp and runs with a better TT(morning arrival at Howrah); though lacks a PC(pantry car); maybe considered over the Poorva in some cases[LHB rakes as well]. 7)12312 Kalka Mail Historically the most important train running on this route; this train(used to run as 01 UP/02 DN) has been degraded by the IR in recent years; runs delayed very often. Has a good morning arrival at HWH though. 7)12250 ANVT-HWH Yuva exp A weekly train; on paper the fastest on the route; though not given high priority. Also the fact that it lacks a PC and has very low stoppages makes it worse[ICF rake and personally don't feel like travelling overnight in a chair car]. 8)12330 WB Sampark Kranti Exp Faster than either the Poorva or the Kalka Mail, but has a bad arrival time at Sealdah(evening arrival, may be a problem if it gets delayed too much). 9)13008 Toofan Exp One word, don't. There is no reason to travel by this train(especially end to end). Takes 36 hours to cover the distance; has a bad TT(evening arrival at Howrah and it will get delayed). Too many stoppages in between. 10)22858 ANVT-SRC Exp Originally ran as a special; later regularized as a weekly. Hugely delayed and goes via the longer TATA-KGP route; use it as a last resort. 11)13120 DLI-SDAH Exp A super crawler; taking a mammoth 41 hours to cover the distance; runs without a Pantry Car. 12)13132 ANVT-KOAA Exp Purchase a cycle and start cycling towards Calcutta. You'll reach there before this train. Taking 40 hours to cover the distance, still horribly delayed by 10+ hours, cancelled every other day, no pantry car[will possibly get LHB in 100 years].

Apr 17 2016 (2:39AM) See it evening arrival and average delayandadisaster,ohandnopantrycaraswell Trustme,havetravelled in this(backwhenitranasaspecial) and itwaspossiblythemosthorrendousjourneyI'vebeenthrough
The rake comes from SRC to ANVT and the same train goes after some time from ANVT; very less time it gets at ANVT, this creates delays while starting from source itself. See it evening arrival and average delay, it's quite bad. Though I do see merit in your argument, both trains are hugely delayed and lack pantry cars. 13008 actually takes way more longer. The only advantage is that HWH is easier to deboard at if one's train arrives at midnight.
And please once travel in SL class from kolkata to Delhi in Toofan express. Then you will feel heaven in 22858 , while onboard Toofan Express. Seems like you know nothing about our great "Crawling Legend" Toofan Express. LOL..
Obviously man , 13008 rightly deserves to be below 22858. Reasons: 1. Delhi to Kolkata , in 13008 I would be spending 36.30hrs (Adding delays it comes nearly 43-44hrs) , with "pathetic" 85 halts enroute. No pantry. No safety. No useful catering. And also arriving Howrah late night 1-2 am normally. 2. 22858 is better bcoz it takes mere 27.15hrs (Adding delays it... more...
comes out nearly 32-33hrs) with just 9 halts which is way better than Toofan Express. Pantry is not there , but still Catering Facility is present. Only glitch is its night arrival at SRC. But If it arrives SRC before 10 pm (which it generally does) , then transport are present for connectivity with Kolkata town. 22858 is not good for Connecting journey from Kolkata , but its surely Far more better than travelling Delhi to Kolkata & vice versa for a Local Kolkata inhabitant. Now tell me , for arriving at Howrah instead of SRC , are you ready to risk your safety and waste nearly 10-12 hrs extra in 13008 Toofan express?
Maintenance is still manageable , but the main problem is very less TAT at ANVT which causes the 22858 to start on time from ANVT. If RB somehow changes its Departure Timings from ANVT to be late in the evening, then it can surely be able to arrive SRC by night 10-11pm and they can also extend it to HWH as after 11pm , the SER side becomes bit vacant as all major night departure (like Mail,Azadhind,Puri trains etc) would have already left HWH.
The problem with late departure from ANVT is that the evening slot is too full on that route. In either case, IR would have to reschedule the train to late evening(after Rajdhani gang) to make it any sense to run.
Thats what i am saying....The departure could be made late evening or may be at night after the Purushottam departure from delhi. If departure is made about 11pm from ANVT , then its scheduled arrival time at SRC can be made 3-4 am (adding delays it could arrive SRC by 6-7 am morning) which is very brilliant.
These points are very useful for passengers from other parts of India who are traveling for the first time between Calcutta and New Delhi. Even foreign tourists can go through these points to get an actual idea (although many of them travel from Calcutta to Gaya, then Gaya to Varanasi, Varanasi to Allahabad, Allahabad to Mathura and then to New Delhi)... thanks :)

King toh shine ki as usual but baaki ka Surya Asht ho gaya jinme ye sab bhi shamil hai.. 12309:- Arrived at NEW DELHI (NDLS) at 05-Dec 09:50 Delayed by 02:10 Hrs 12301:- Arrived at NEW DELHI (NDLS) at 05-Dec 11:07 Delayed by 01:07 Hrs. . 12423:- Arrived at NEW DELHI (NDLS) at 05-Dec 11:35 Delayed by 01:20 Hrs. . 12313:-... more...
Arrived at NEW DELHI (NDLS) at 05-Dec 12:03 Delayed by 01:38 Hrs. . 22823:- Arrived at NEW DELHI (NDLS) at 05-Dec 12:16 Delayed by 01:36 Hrs. . Definitely koi issue hai particulary iss time..
mgs pnbe kaha se aa gaya.. 130 run ald mgs me hua tha jiski wajah se delay recovery hui hai, agar waha pe ncr controller se priority nahi mili hoti to 4 hour delay bhi pakka tha... patna mgs me to 110 hi hai mps aapko to pata hi hoga... secondly ntes ne 20 min delay reduce kiya hai... anyways nice run in ncr after huge delay.. 70-80 min recover ho gaye thanks to 130mps..
I would say that this is credit to time table designers. Prayagraj schedule is realistic with avg speed in 60s all trains which have average speeds 70+ will struggle in fog guaranteed... and rajdhanis are worst sufferers
See bro...I didn't tell it to you...it was for MKS... N yes simple si logic h....3 hr late at 3 am....means mgs arrival would be around 6 am..... Aur maine ye kahi ni likha hai ki mgs pnbe mei 130 kari h....plz bewajah ki baatein mat likhiye sir.... Faadu run matlab 130 ni hota......Kai trains nei diye h faadu run in 2hr 25... more...
min to 35 min in mgs pnbe....khair....ye mera logic h...
It is zone thinking. While NCR only sees MPS, GC_ECR main criteria is halts. Lesser halts train are allowed to OT more halt trains. It explain why train like Duronto, less halts SF as Sampark kranti (WB & RNC) 12323/24 (HWH Biweekly) JSM 1271 OT more halting trains as Kalka, MB, Nandan Kanan. Even express can OT SF like 18104 has OT 12802 due to extra halts at Hazaribagh and PNME.
