Jul 25 2016 (11:28PM) Attached below are 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. Attached... more...
are the screenshots of todays run and Arrival/Depature history between KGP to HWH.
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. Date... more...
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.
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.
