What is your suggestions about a train between Dhanbad-Paradeep Exp via Tatanagar, Hijli, Bhadrak ? Will it get patronage?

Dada Paradeep cannot be compared to Digha in any way. Both r completely different.
1. Paradeep has become a hub of industrial activities. Industries like, IFFCO, PPL(a Adventz group company), CARGILL, IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, 
Carbon etc. have been established here.
2. Paradeep has a big PORT also.
from all over India comes to work in Paradeep. Any person who is linked with these industries or knows about these industries knows Paradeep very well. Huge potential for Paradeep be it in Freight traffic and Passengers traffic if ECOR utilise these both properly. ECOR uses freight traffic very well but i will expect Passengers traffic in Paradeep should be utilized more. I had earlier given the same proposal at the time of SRC-PRDP Exp, i had then told ECOR to convert SRC-PRDP EXP to INTERCITY type train as several labors, office goers travel to Paradeep for work and for them a train with SL, 2A,3A is not required. Convert it to ICE train and if ECOR cannot SER can give rake. But Khurda Road officials did some survey don't know what and no reply they further result they gave.
Whereas, Digha is completely a tourists spot. Only tourists travel there. Digha i don't think any bengali is there who doesn't know be itSouth or North Bengal people or outside WB bengali everybody knows. I think you know in bengali there is a word called " DIPUDA" famous among all bengalis tourists spots. Here,
3 famous tourist spot where every bengali goes whenever they get a chance.

Dada DHN-DIGHA overnight train not at all required. Will get less than 10% occupancy. Instead DHN-PRDP exp via Tatanagar will get good patronage. See Dhanbad, Bokaro, Tatanagar, Hijli/ Kharagpur, Bhadrak all big stations and Dhanbad, Bokaro, Tatanagar r Industrial cities. Many officers, workers, labors travel between these cities. Also Paradeep has many industries. A Weekly special train with suitable TT can be tried and if gets patronage can be thought i think. What is you thought Sir?

I know these two are of inverse nature. What I meant is relevance for the population you're targetting. Santragachi-Paradeep is already dump. When a metropolitan completely fails, we cannot expect tier 2 cities to perform any better. 90% of the employee base of Paradeep are from northern India like most other central industrial hubs here, which hardly have any mutual connection. In such a case connectivity to deemed destinations described by the host company(s) is of only relevance. For eg. ANVT-HLZ Exp, Haldia inspite of having ~60% local working population provides good patronage to this. Same weekly result can be expected from Paradeep as well.

Digha isn't popular outside WB, North OD and four prime cities of JH(Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Dhanbad, Bokaro). DHN-DGHA overnight via ASN-ADRA-KGP or ASN-DKAE--MCA could be tried as spl. I think it might get patronage sufficient enough to sustain. Others' opinion are welcome.

Sir SRC-PRDP exp is a dump because of Railway Commercial failure. A train given by ECOR and RB only to use the RSA and for the sake of giving the connectivity with Kolkata. But a commercial failure.
Haldia and Paradeep are very similar , both have Industries, both have Ports. Both Haldia and Paradeep are underutilised stations of IR in terms of passengers traffic. Paradeep is pretty new but Haldia is used only for Freight loading for years by SER. In Panskura-Haldia route Freight has higgest priority and EMU trains. Some situation improvement now but till years before if was the situation. Both Paradeep and Haldia passengers prefer Road transport over Railway.
r correct Haldia gives passengers to HLZ-ANVT Exp because the reason i say is in Factories, Ports workers , labors r mainly from Bihar, Jharkhand, other parts of West Bengal also from many Southern India states. To cater these you remember RB approved HLZ- MAS Exp and HLZ-ANVT Exp. Because many workers, labors are working in HALDIA PORT , and different Factories of Haldia r from Bihar, UP, Jharkhand, Andhra, TamilNadu, Orissa, other parts of WB also. To give them benefit these trains r given. Even HLZ-MAS Exp gets passengers from Haldia for that reason.
Now comming to SRC-PRDP exp, if you see many Factories, have Regional offices in KOLKATA as Eastern Regional Offices also many have Offices in Bhubaneswar. Also, Paradeep Port and different Factories in Paradeep many labors, workers, officers works are from Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, West Bengal. Many officers also visit Paradeep from Kolkata office or Bhubaneswar office for Site visit at Paradeep. If you remember many years back different Industries there at Paradeep had submitted many Proposals at SER HQ, ECOR HQ to provide a Connectivity between Paradeep and Kolkata, Paradeep and Bhubaneswar. But unfortunately ECOR gave connectivity but poor TT and not suitable to any passengers and without survey of passengers needs there. An Intercity day train with CC, 2S, II was needed instead of 2A,3A,SL coaches train and because of that failure SRC-PRDP exp is a dump now. RSA partner was given priority not passengers needs.

रेलवे स्टेशन के सुदृढ़ीकरण का कार्य शुरू
Publish Date:Mon, 01 Jun 2020 10:39 PM (IST)
रेलवे द्वारा ए श्रेणी में शुमार प्रतापगढ़ जंक्शन के कायाकल्प का काम फिर से शुरू हुआ है। हालांकि बजट न होने से अभी रेल लाइन के दोहरीकरण के बाकी काम न होकर केवल प्लेटफार्म की फर्श का ही कार्य हो रहा है।...
जागरण संवाददाता, प्रतापगढ़ : रेलवे द्वारा ए
श्रेणी में शुमार प्रतापगढ़ जंक्शन के कायाकल्प का काम फिर से शुरू हुआ है। हालांकि बजट न होने से अभी रेल लाइन के दोहरीकरण के बाकी काम न होकर केवल प्लेटफार्म की फर्श का ही कार्य हो रहा है।
जंक्शन की सूरत बदलने को करोड़ों का मेगा प्रोजेक्ट केंद्र सरकार से दो साल पहले मिला था। इसमें जंक्शन पर काफी काम हो गया है। शेड को बदला गया है, टाइल्स, बेंच ठीक कराई गई है। प्रकाश की मुकम्मल व्यवस्था हो गई है। दोहरी लाइन के लिए सई नदी पर नया रेल पुल भी बन रहा था, लेकिन लाकडाउन में काम बंद हो गया था। अब वह भी शुरू होगा।
कोरोना काल में मरम्मत कार्यों के लिए बजट न होना रेल प्रशासन के लिए समस्या है। इधर लगातार श्रमिक स्पेशल ट्रेन के आने से मजदूरों की भीड़ व अफसरों के जमावड़े से मरम्मत का काम भी रुक गया था। अब ट्रेन कम हो गई हैं। ऐसे में काम धीर-धीरे गति लेगा। मरम्मत के लिए तोड़े गए प्लेटफार्म नंबर दो और तीन की फर्श को अब मंद गति से ही सही बनाया जाने लगा है। रेलवे के एईएन निर्माण राकेश कुमार का कहना है कि रेल संचालन के साथ ही निर्माण कार्य अब धीरे-धीरे पटरी पर आएगा। रेल पुल के बनने में बाधक बनी हाईटेंशन लाइन हटाने को बिजली विभाग से फिर से कहा गया है।

Mujhe bahut kast hota hai jab SK, Patna-Vasco ki extension ki baat ki jati hai. Sach to yeh hai ki 3trains hai jinka extension jald se jald honi chaiye par inke bare mein koi vi baat nahi karta hai. Yeh trains hai;
2.) RNC-DGHR Intercity Exp.
3.) KOAA-JSME Fast Pass.
3 train ko easily BGP tak extend kiya ja sakta hai par sab SK, Vasco ko extension karne mein lage hua hai..
