TRIP REPORT
October is an exciting month . The month of Diwali . . . which we all wait for months . As a railfan and a student I was super excited for the upcoming Diwali trip to my home . . . The exciting day arrived on 25th October – the day of my most awaiting trip . . . The trip was even more special because I was to travel in one of my favourite trains in which I had not travelled in last 15 years – SHAKTIPUNJ EXPRESS . . .
Well
...
more...
, It all began in September , the planning for tickets . . . As there are no direct trains between Bhopal & Bokaro Steel City so I had to plan my journey accordingly . The only direct train for Patna , Indore Rajendra Nagar Express was showing Regret in AC 3 & Sleeper class so Patna break journey link was not working . So after much planning I booked a break journey tickets on 13th September from Bhopal to Barkakana Jn in 12854 Amarkantak Express & 11447 Shaktipunj Express with change over at Jabalpur in AC 3 tier .
The Journey Day (25th October) :
It was a pleasant day , Autumn is one of the best season for railfanning . I reached Bhopal station at 15:00 hrs , Amarkantak Express was standing on pf 4 , ET WAP 4 was the loco link . My B2 coach was 2012 made and was nicely maintained . The train departed sharp at 15:40 hrs . The train reached Itarsi at 17:30 , the loco changed to ET WDM 3A twins . Also It was pleasure to meet railfan and our IRI member Suraj Parihar at Itarsi Jn . Train departed ET at 18:05 a delay of 25 mins . The twins rocked the journey , running flat at mps .Despite having 8 halts train covered 245 kms in 3 hr 50 mins with an average speed of 68 km/hr and reached Jabalpur at 21:45 . One thing was surprising that we had overtaken 22352 YPR PPTA SF Exp at Madan Mahal , don’t know why controllers allowed this overtake to happen .
Jabalpur Station :
The WCR headquarters was as clean as expected . . . I was accompanied by my 2 friends , we had nearly 2 hrs buffer time so we decided to have dinner outside the station campus in a dhaba . We returned to station at 23:30 hrs . 11447 was scheduled to depart right time at 23:50 from pf 3 . But the train was itself placed at 00:20 hrs . . .
Shaktipunj Express :
My coach was 2010 made and it was even more nicely maintained than Amarkantak Express . The train departed late by 55 mins at 00:45 . The bedrolls were given to us at 01:25 by the time train had reached Sihora Road station . The train was hauled by a WDM 3A of Patratu shed .
The next Morning (26th October)
I got up at nearly 07:15 , the train was standing at an unscheduled halt Mahdeiya station i.e it had entered ECR Dhanbad division , the train departed at 08:35 after crossing with UP 11448 Shaktipunj Exp . The train was very slow upto Chopan , at CPU the loco link changed to PTRU WDP 4 , the speed got better after getting an EMD . At 16:00 hrs when the train was approaching Latehar , which is naxalite prone area , the train suddenly stopped with a jerk , the reason was a tree that had suddenly fallen on the tracks . The tree was removed quickly with the help of passengers and the local police from the nearby station Hehegara halt . The train finally reached Barkakana Jn at 18:45 , a delay of 50 mins . All thanks to slack time . . .
Although Chandrapura Jn is the nearest station on this route from Bokaro Steel City I chose Barkakana because of good road connectivity . The Ramgarh Bus stand is situated 5 kms from Barkakana railway station . From Ramgarh bus stand we get frequent buses to Bokaro Steel City . Bokaro is at a distance of 78 kms from Ramgarh bus stand .
We reached bus stand at 19:30 , we boarded different buses , my friend went to Ranchi . The bus departed at 20:00 hrs and reached Bokaro at 21:30 . The average speed of the bus was 52Km/hr .
Thanks for reading my trip report . . .

Father of offlinks.
Train of SECR. Zone of WCR & Loco of SR.
This is what happens when too many allotments are done to particular shed.

Offlink do happen sir.
This doesn't mean RPM is under utilising its loco..
In SR many trains still running with D-loco due to shortage of loco.
Btw I spotted 30436 @MS on Tuesday morning.. may be it would have come with sanga gangs..and offlink would have given by ET staffs. ✌

Re# 1983511-5            Tags   Past Edits
Too many allotments?!! :D Not at all! RPM just has 51 WAP7s as per the latest holdings.Then what can be told about GZB/LGD ? Trains still use LGD P7s and P4s in SR. There are many trains that get dloco even in FEDL section. SR has to handle links for some SWR trains too. Locos are alloted to sheds by the RB due to the growing needs for the zone. I must say that offlinks have nothing to do with allotments for sheds. A loco is given as an offlink not because it is an excess loco but due to the unavailability of the regular link.Infact its an efficient way of utilising an idle loco by sending it as an offlink generally. The loco must reach its ELS. So its sent as offlink as no train from/to MAS that undergoes LC at ET get RPM WAP7s. They all get P4s.
