Attached below are the screenshots of todays run and Arrival/Depature history between KGP to HWH
Is Arriving RT at Howrah all depending on luck ?
Has been alloted more than 2 hours to cover KGP HWH but still stuggling to enter HWH on time.
Is it SRC where the congestion lies or HWH ?
Today it departed BZN at 21.43 as per NTES but still failed to reach RT at HWH. Arrived 15 minutes late.

Yes, SRC to HWH is the most congested part in SER. Although a 4th line has been built up in between them to reduce the traffic, but it seems, that is not fully sufficient. Moreover, look at the time of arrival of this train at HWH. That is a peak departure hours of many long distant SER trains from HWH New Complex. Getting a PF free might also be an issue here. Btw, do you really consider 15 mins as a significant delay?

So train must be running good till it reaches SRC outers, only after SRC it gets affected.
And by the way few months back it never used to give ontime arrivals at HWH not even a single one, so i posted a pgportal grievance but look at their reply given.
I was hoping for a reply like you gave me but their reply was simply weird, given for the sake of giving.

of Receipt : 01 Jun 2016
Grievance Description : Sir, Train No. 18048 is the only direct connection from Goa to Howrah and an important train for states like Goa, Orissa and West Bengal. But it has been given a pretty odd arrival time at Howrah Junction ie. late night at 22.40. But the problem is the train never reaches Howrah Junction on time always arrives with either a 15 minutes delay or a more than one hour delay. As per my observations from NTES there is not even a single ontime arrival for this train at Howrah Junction. Earlier its arrival at Howrah was 22.25 even at that time it never arrived ontime mostly arrived with 15 minutes delay and now its been slowed down by 15 minutes ie. arrival changed to 22.40 at Howrah and still never arrived ontime. So I kindly request you to improve the punctuality of this train and make it arrive ontime at Howrah on most of its runs as this train is the only link to East India from Goa. Thank You.
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 29 Jun 2016
Details : Indian Railways make all efforts to run trains on time. However, trains do run late sometimes due to various reasons like miscreant activities, alarm chain pulling, natural calamities such as cyclonic storms or damage to track due to breaches, law and order problems, bad weather, cattle run over and electricity grid failure, equipment failure etc.

If a HWH bound train reaches almost on time at KGP (or not more than 15 mins delay), it generally doesn't get delayed by more than 15-10 15-20 mins at HWH
Really, very strange reply from the officials.
.
If a HWH bound train reaches almost on time at KGP (or not more than 15 mins delay), it generally doesn't get delayed by more than 15-20 mins at HWH. it is from my past experience. Trains which have early morning arrivals at HWH (e.g. MAS - HWH Mail, CKP - HWH Passenger), sometimes reach before time there. As I already told you before, getting a PF clear in HWH New Complex during rush hours sometimes becomes non-trivial.

Yeah you I was actually expecting a reply like your one from the officials. I have also posted a similar grievance to SWR for this trains bad punctuality at VSG but still status is 'Under Process'.
I also agree that punctuality at HWH is much better than its punctuality at VSG for this train. But past few days punctuality at VSG is also improving.

We all know how much rush this train carries but SER are not able to add more coaches due to 4 slip coaches operated by SCR from KCG to VSG and SCR's proposal for dedicated train rejected by SWR citing Ghat constraints. Anyways but considering the fact that train has just coaches from HWH to GTL. Why not SER add around 4 slip coaches in this train from HWH to GTL this will definitely be helpful for bringing down the rush. At GTL these coaches can be removed and KCG Vasco slip coaches can be attached. Once SWR completes HPT VSG track doubling ie. after 4 to 5 years and finally allows KCG Vasco dedicated train these HWH GTL slip coaches can be added to HWH VSG main portion.

slip coaches can consist of 2 SL, one 3AC and one SLR coach which will definitely ease this trains load.
Before posting this suggestion on pgportal I would like to get views from you guys here.

Agree it takes longer route,but what is solution if SWR keep on reject proposal from Years?? and RB simply watch and enjoy enjoy,some thing is better than nothing
Amravati takes 2121kms and if MAO-Panvel - HWH takes 1940+486 which is 2436 kms....which is 305kms extra.
Agree it takes longer route,but what is solution if SWR keep on reject proposal from Years?? and RB simply watch and enjoy,some thing is better than nothing.
i guess there is some segment of people who are willing to travel for extra 2 or 4 hrs insted of taking break journeys or book in WL.

But if COA itself caters to PM of teh train, then it d dsnt rake have will issues nt in stay TAT idle at the pf
Also Besides, additional pf is coming up at CCT
Kaali ga unaadu ani Goatami Gowtami kki ki 9 hrs ichadu kani, it can be reduced down
Besides this , still you have 8 weekly slots of PM available at COA- 6 slots of 15:00-21:00 and 2 slots of 22:00-4:00
Last year both sides 20 mins slow chesindi vastavame and the reason is to minimize TAT at COA by 40 mins as it occupies the PF1 at COA. But if COA itself caters to PM of teh train, then d rake will nt stay idle at the pf. Besides, additional pf is coming up at CCT. Kaali ga unaadu ani Gowtami ki 9 hrs ichadu kani, it can be reduced down. And the slot of 8-14 hrs in Gowtami's pitline can be given to circar. Gowtami taking 14:00- 20:00 hrs slot. And with this the 17225 can follow its current TT comfortably upto COA if RSA established between 17225 and circar.

Also there is a Double line Bypass coming up from Amargol to Kusugal bypassing Hubbali.

Too many stops between Hubli to Guntur sir you can't remove them otherwise protests will start. But one thing to notice is sir will IR really consider the actual distance from Vasco to Howrah or will they use the inflated distance as per the official site, definitely they will use the inflated one.
As per inflated kms the distance from VSG to HWH is 2160kms so presently average speed as per IR is 54.5 kph, so even if they speed it up by 20 to 30 minutes it will be 55 kph as per Indian Railways though.

I don't think any further speedup can be seen in near future and neither any of the stops would be removed. It is doing very well currently and it enjoys SF priority in the entire stretch. Only think it requires to increase atleast 4 coaches to cope up with huge rush.

Sir in next three or four years SWR will see a lot of doubled sections. Presently it has a bad reputation for running trains slowly they should really start thinking of major speed ups now and track doubling should definitely help in it. Right now it definitely enjoys SF priority but what if in future IR adds more stops to it considering it is just a normal M/E train completely ignoring its schedule. Besides there are other SFs trains too like GT, ADI HWH SF which has many halts too but still a SF.

Sir my assumptions for speed up are as follows:
1. Completion of Guntur to Guntakal electrification works.
2. Completion of Hospet to Vasco track doubling.
3. Loco change from electric to diesel shifted to Guntakal so halt time of Guntur to be reduced.
4.
...
more...
Running of dedicated HYB VSG train so SCR can complete the loco change at Guntakal from electric to diesel and vice versa easily without bothering about slip attachments or detachments.
5. Increase in MPS in Braganza Ghats from 30 kph to at least 50 kph.
6. No waiting for crossings in the doubled Guntakal Vasco stretch so can definitely manage higher average speeds.
These assumptions are not that much impossible sir only thing is required is dedication from SWR for higher speeds not only for this train but all trains on BAY to LD and SBC to LD route. If SWR takes up speeding up of trains seriously this train will definitely be one of the benefiting one from it.
Thanks.
