Do you think this train can be Short Terminated at Kharagpur, and run as Kharagpur-Vishakhapatnam Exp.
This train should run from Howrah Junction!
Howrah not possible. No space at Howrah. Plenty of trains from Howrah to Vishapatnam side. This train was given to cater Purba Midnapur district passengers. It get good passengers till Kharagpur and till Panskura. From Panskura to Digha almost empty runs. Now Panskura gives good passengers to this train but no space at Panskura to park the rake and start a long distance train from Panskura so it can be made to originate from Kharagpur.
Is break journey allowed in current situation? Like:
02692 from SBC to NDLS then 02057 UHL JS from NDLS to SASN
Yes allowed but you need to see how will you pass around 6hrs on station!!
Should be speed-up as a Duranto!
No , North Kolkata walo ke liye yeh yeh hi train hai
Src ya shm wale toh satabdhi,SF ya garib rath pakar sakte hai
No Terminal change for Sealdah-Puri Duronto exp will be done. Sealdah-Puri gets passengers and this train is for huge no of passengers of North 24 Parganas, South 24 Parganas, Nadia districts, and parts of Kolkata for these districts Sealdah is a nearest station and had very good direct EMU/ MEMU connectivity. This train was given to cater passengers of these regions.
For these districts passengers Santragachi, Shalimar stations are far away and not very smooth communication present there.
Would not happen bro. The train is important for people from northern part of kolkata and the only connection for puri bound passengers from the other side of hooghly. SHM/SRC passengers have loads of trains for them. Furthermore the extra time due to this extra route from sealdah to andal is quite useful for an hour of extra sleep which is essential in my opinion. 7-8 hrs of sleep is necessary for a fresh next day. Had the train started from HWH/SHM, people would get less than 6 hrs of sleep most probably.
No Terminal change will be done for SDAH-PURI DURONTO exp. This train is for South 24 Parganas, North 24 parganas, Nadia districts people and parts of Kolkata say North Kolkata area people only. This train was given to cater these areas passengers. If you remember, as far as i remember the same year when SDAH-PURI DURONTO EXP was Announced that year SHM-PURI Exp was also announced together with this train. The main objective of RB, RM was SDAH-PURI DURONTO EXP will be for outh 24 Parganas, North 24 parganas, Nadia districts people and parts of Kolkata say North Kolkata area peoples and SHM-PURI EXP will be for Howrah, Hooghly, Parts of Kolkata passengers. Both trains got announced together in same year Railway Budget.
Yes I remember even I want it to become it daily.
