This train must be called "Maharashtra Bhraman Express" or "Maharashtra Darshan Express"
Instead this trains route can be made via Nagpur-Raipur-Bilaspur-Rourkela-Hatia-Ranchi-Bokaro SC-Chandrapura-Dhanbad (this is suitable for end to end passengers)
deekshbhoomi me kya kharabhi hai jo naya naam de rahe ho ??
Kharab kuch nahi hain bas Maharashtra mein unnecessary zyada ghoomta hain isiliye bas 'Maharashtra Bhraman' karva deta hain...
not sure about this, but the long, circuitous route is perhaps the result of multiple extensions.

Then how the pairing train 12389/Gaya-Chennai will run on the coming Sunday 28 June 2015 from Gaya ?
Chennai Division could have diverted today's run via:
Vijayawada- Visakhapatnam- Bokaro- Gomoh - Koderma- Gaya (shorter route than via mkp-MGS)
OR via NGP-Raipur-BSP-Ranchi-Bokaro- Gomoh - Koderma- Gaya. So that the pairing 12389/Gaya-Chennai would be running on the coming Sunday 28 June 2015 from Gaya.
It could have served passengers of Chennai-OGL-Vijayawada-Warangal-BPQ-Nagpur to Gaya,
Jun 25 departure has been CANCELLED for the weekly train 11045/Kolhapur-Dhanbad "Deekshabhoomi Express".
(Leaving Kolhapur on Thursday June 25, leaving Pune on Friday 26 June and arriving Gaya & Dhanbad on Sunday 28 June)
That means, the departure of 29 June has also been CANCELLED for the return 11046/Dhanbad-Pune Kolhapur.
Even SAMATA exp they cancelled which can easily run via katni. Seems Katni route also busy now.
As this is the only train connecting Dhanbad from pune and till Kolhapur if this could be directly routed from Itarsi to Manmad and not doing the bharat darshan by going to Nagpur and again to mammad via Aurangabad. This is a long distance train and should have followed the shortest route. Railways should think on it and must do the needful re routing. As per the need another train to connect from Etarsi to Manmad via Awrangabad could be a better option.
nagpur can not be skipped as deekshabhoomi is a special place in nagpur and this train is meant for peoples visiting that place form various stations. This is surely not for end to end pax.
It originally ran between Gaya and Nagpur so Nagpur cannot be skipped
Identify the two trains in the frame and the location too.
(Hint: Both are Weekly trains, and one of the least captured trains of mine.)
ya , Deekshabhumi exp . Travelled in 2011 . I was surprised to see a diesel loco cuz alcos rarely visit Dhanbad. And perhaps its the only train in Dhanbad gaya stretch to be hauled by a diesel loco
with few more ac coaches and a pantry service the frequency of this train should be increased
Buffer time is more at DD/Daund = 3h 15min. whereas it's ~2 hours at Manmad.
Daund to Manmad, Deekshabhoomi takes 4h 40 min. whereas MYS-Varanasi takes ~6 hours.
In other case From Manmad to Itarsi,
Mysore-Varanasi takes (8h 45m) ONLY whereas
11045/Kolhapur-Dhanbad takes (23h 15m) which is triple.
Y'day 11046 departs 5hrs late from nagpur & now only 25min late @daund!!!
