Black Diamond express arriving and departing from Kmme. Watch out for the length of the train and the raw acceleration of wap7 after departure.

This 22 coached daily intercity is one huge train. If travelling unreserved, always try to reach to reach the front end of the train. Due to sheer length of the train most passengers never go to the front end of the train and pile up at the rear....
Thus quite a few handful of seats remain vacant at HWH!
However in following stations like Sheoraphulli and Bandel whose platform lengths are shorter than this 22 coached intercity, the reverse happens and the passengers load up at front...
Thus
...
more...
by BDC the entire train gets fully filled up :)
In the BWN-DGR stretch this train is more crowded than a local train inspite of having 17 GS Coaches!
Tips 1 :- If boarding at HWH and try that preferably, board positively at front....
Tips 2 :- If you are boarding at SHE & BDC try the same although I can assure you that your chances will be much reduced due to the expertise of the daily passengers!

Back in those days.....
1. Black Diamond was a Express train .
2. Coalfield didn't have RSA and had a 1 AC coach.
3. Mayurakshi indeed ran via chord with an unofficial halt at Khanna and not Liluah if I remember correctly.
4.

Agnibeena was called Bidhan.......
And finally
5. Nokia 1100 and 1600 used to rule the roost back in those days :P

First AC electric locomotive to break into the scene of Indian Railway with Road Number 20202 -- built by Siemens, Brown-Boveri, Alsthom, Krupp, Kraus-Maffei, Schneider-Westinghouse, La Brugeoise Et Nivelle, SFAC (Group for Study & Electrification of Railways at Single Phase 50 cycles). It was imported in November 1958 by the Indian Railways and was dedicated to service of the nation on 1st January 1959. It marked the introduction and advent of 25 KV AC traction on the Indian Railway Map. This four axled, 74 ton loco comes with Bo-Bo bogie type arrangement, powered by 2840 hp engine, Spring-borne Force-ventilated fully suspended AEC-Alstom- Siemens MG 710A traction motors, Monomotor bogies with air brakes for loco & vacuum train brakes as original equipment. Regenerative braking was also provided while the motors are permanently connected in parallel. Speed was controlled by transformer taps. Also four water-cooled Ignitrons Rectifiers were present. This loco was fitted...

with Faiveley AM-12 pantos.
Christened as 'Jagjivan Ram' after the then railway minister Shri Jagjivan Ram who inaugurated this loco. Kanpur was the first shed to host this loco which was later transferred to Asansol. On November 25, 1960, it hauled a special train for the congress of ECAFE (Economic Commission for Asia and Far-East) from Asansol to Pathardih via Pradhankhunta. The locomotive hauled various prestigious trains of Eastern Railway including Howrah-Delhi Kalka Mail, Coal Field Express, Black Diamond Express and Deluxe Express (rechristened as Poorva Express) on the Howrah-Asansol- Dhanbad-Mughalsarai route. It covered a total of 38,75,000 km till the end of its service life on October 22nd, 1997.
To celebrate 50 glorious years of A.C. Electric Traction in India, this loco was revived back to life by Asansol ELS with a trial run between Asansol & Durgapur on 28th December 2009, by refurbishing the machine with restoration of its original livery. The experiment was partly successful as it came back to life and performed some shunting duties. But later it was shelved and relegated to the Howrah Railway Museum as it became part of history of evolution of AC Electric Locomotives in India.
Framed by Roy at Howrah Railway Museum on 27th June 2016.
