RailFans don't miss their train. Why? Because they go to the station HOURS before the actual departure of their Train - to watch OTHER trains depart. - Prince Maan

New/Special Trains
Yesterday (14:13)   Shramik special train leaves Gujarat for Bihar but reaches Karnataka

Next train from SWR~   687 news posts
Entry# 4638075   News Entry# 409285         Tags   Past Edits
Believe it or not, but it’s a fact that a Shramik Special train, carrying migrants, left Gujarat for Bihar but reached Karnataka. Yet another Shramik Special, carrying over 1,200 migrants from Surat, was supposed to reach Chapra in Bihar, but instead, it reached Rourkela in Odisha. Two other similar trains, instead of reaching Patna, reached Purulia (in West Bengal) and Gaya, respectively.

Notwithstanding the claim of Railway Ministry to have run hundreds of Shramik Special trains and helped lakhs of migrants reach their home
State this month, the fact is that the functioning of railways has gone ‘off track’ and the system completely ‘derailed’.
Or else, how could one explain that a train, which was supposed to leave Surat on May 16 and reach Chapra (in North Bihar) on May 18, went to Bengaluru. After the train was traced, it was brought to Chapra on May 25, a tiring nine-day ordeal and untold hardship for the passengers in this hot humid summer.
The Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) of the East Central Railway (ECR), Rajesh Kumar, however, denied any knowledge of such ‘lapse’. However, sources in the Railways (posted in Uttar Pradesh) did confirm to DH on Tuesday that a Bihar-bound train (No. 0912791), coming from Surat in Gujarat, did lose its track at Bhusaval (in Maharashtra) and instead of going northwards towards Allahabad (now Prayagraj) en route Chapra, it went down South towards Bengaluru.
“Similar error was made in the case of another train, Surat-Siwan Shramik Special, when it was diverted to Rourkela in Odisha,” said a senior official, strictly on the condition of anonymity. “Both the trains were traced and brought to Chapra and Siwan on May 25,” said the Railway official, admitting it was a major faux pas.
“The Shramik Specials are being run on the request of the state governments. So it’s not entirely the fault of railways,” he argued. But he had no answer when asked whether it’s the responsibility of a state government to decide about the track and route of a particular train.
“In Shramik Specials, only two things matter. Originating station and the destination. Once you reach the destination, the chapter ends… no matter which route you travelled, because many a time we have to divert routes due to congestion on main routes,” he made an unsuccessful bid to cover up.

Not all r fake news i think, some r genuine also. The train which wrongly went to Rourkella which was supposed to go to Bihar i think, that news i saw in a TV channel few days back where the reporter had asked train passengers about it and they on live tv said it that they were shocked to see they reached Rourkella, Orissa instead of Bihar. I saw that in some news channel.
So, yes some news can be fake but not all.

IR needs to take action against this publication, if it's fake. We can understand if some part of the route has been diverted like BSL to NGP then to again via BSP to reach Bihar, etc. But all way till SBC looks too much unrealistic.

Yes that news of the train which went to ROU was correct. Probably the mistake that railways made was that they could have communicated about the diversion to passengers in the beginning of the journey itself. Since these trains are not stopping midway in any stations it is better to keep passengers informed
Here is the link to the explanation by the Rly board chairman.

Based on present freight traffic ER has at present sufficient Freight loco. More WAG locos will come to BWN. ER sufficient Passengers locos also, but more WAP7 will come to HWH shed also. ASN shed will also get locos in future.
BWN WAG locos r not only for freight, many routes of ER r getting electrified in comming days also, these BWN locos can pull passenger trains also. These BWN locos or maybe in future Jamalpur DLS will also get Electric locos for passenger trains also.
Birbhum district of WB have got
a huge coal block and soon coal will be excavated from there, and as many routes of ER are fast getting electrified. So, BWN locos will pull more freight trains in future. After the coal block starts coal transportation ER will get a huge freight traffic and ER will require many freight locos and locosheds in ER zone - Howrah Div BWN Shed, ASN Div ASN Shed, NFR Zone Malda Shed also.

WAP4 is one of the most successful locomotives in India.
Hence it won't be stopped
Many reasons
When a loco pilot gets his 1st duty then naturally he won't get WAP7 to drive but after 2 to 3 trips then he gets appointed.
fact sometimes I feel like going to CLW factory for re installing WAP4s
