================A WAIT================ It was the summer of 2015 , a very warm day in Bhopal , not the best day for railfanning either . It was 18th June 2015 , Friends I am here to tell you one of my worst train journey experience . A journey which I will never forget . So lets begin . . . . 17 June | I... more...
had been in Bhopal for a couple of days for some urgent work . I was accompanied with my dad , we had stayed in a hotel near the railway station . For the return journey to Patna I had successfully booked a tatkal ticket in 11071 from Bhopal to Varanasi in AC 3 tier (though I had plans to deboard at Allahabad to catch 12149 Pune Patna Exp) and a sleeper class ticket from Allahabad to Patna in 12149 on 18th June . All things were going fine , but at 12:00 hrs I smelled something bad is going to happen . I was at Bhopal Jn just for railfanning . I saw a train in old Rajdhani livery 12172 Haridwar LTT AC Exp is standing at pf2 that too without a loco [[/blog/post/1515299|pics]|/blog/post/1515299|pics]] . And the suddenly came Pushpak Exp from Itarsi end and the announcement said 12533 Lucknow Mumbai Pushpak Exp has arrived on Pf 3 . Totally surprised . I asked one passenger about where the train was going , he said the train is going to Mumbai and had returned from Obaidullagunj station and will take a different route . Then an announcement was made “ Itarsi RRI me bheeshan aag ke karan 12172 Haridwar Lokmanyatilak AC Exp ab parivartit marg Ujjain , Nagda , Ratlam hokar Lomanyatilak ko jayegi , Yatriyon ke is asuvidha ke liye hume khed hai “ . FIRE AT ITARSI RRI –this blew my mind , I hoped everything was ok till my tonight’s journey . Meanwhile 12172 departed after loco reversal and 12628 Karnatka Exp too returned from some station in BPL ET sec and arrived Bhopal Jn. I returned to my hotel and turned on the TV , The fire at ET RRI was really massive and has destroyed the whole signalling system , there was also a news of diversion and cancellation of many trains . Meanwhile I checked the running status of my train on NTES , it showed that 11071 had departed LTT right time at 12:40 and was not diverted , this was a sigh of relief for me but I didn’t knew that a major problem is still to come . At 15:00 hrs I got a press release from WCR which was posted at IRI that 11071 will be diverted via Jalgaon – Nagda – Nishatpura – Bina i.e it wont touch Bhopal Jn [/blog/post/1515482|Press Release] At 20:30 , while checking NTES again I got another shock , The NTES displayed 11071 has arrived Bhusaval at 20:22 delayed by 1 hr 12 mins and has been diverted via Jalgaon - Surat - Ujjain – Bhopal and will arrive Bhopal Jn at 08:30 next morning instead of its schedule time 02:35 . So we decided to stay in the hotel for this night . To Be Continued . . . The journey day #NiketKaran
Very nice narration......really it was hell of a time for railways during that period.....the whole system was crashed for weeks.....but you were lucky enough to catch that train since it was not diverted. ....
