Sealdah Duronto:
Although Sealdah Duronto is able to arrive on time at New Delhi (pic 1) in some rare cases, in the return journey the train is ALWAYS LATE (All RED, pic 2).
Bhubaneswar Duronto:
Duronto is never able to arrive on time at New Delhi (pic 4) and due to low TAT it normally departs late from New Delhi making it arrive late at Bhubaneswar by more than 4-6 hours (pic 3).
Allahabad Mumbai LTT Duronto:
LTT arrival is mostly always late, not before than 15:30 pm atleast. NTES updates it as arrived at LTT when it crosses Thane.😂
Yeswantpur Howrah Duronto:
Poor maintenance as pointed out by many passengers traveling in the train.
I think it's about time that some of these trains need immediate slowdowns in their Time Table as they clearly are not able to maintain their schedules. Even maintainence seems to be a growing headache here. People are not paying Flexi Fares in order to arrive 4+hours late at their destinations.

Thank You 🙏🙏 Galatfehmi k shikar ho.dikh RHA hai
They don't have solutions Bhaiya Ji.
Inko bas blame karna aata hai kabhi Politics ko kabhi Railways ko aur hamesha NCR ko. 😂
Har cheez bol di par jis solution ke baare mein pucha aapne uska jawab nahi diya.
Agar itna hi dam hai toh badha le apne Zones ka MPS NCR jitna, eklauta Zone hai jo Sleeper Coaches waali Superfast trains ko 130
MPS pe chalata hai. Inki trains ka Superfast tag NCR ke balboote hai.
Leave them, you carry on your good work. This blog is a necessity jab hum inn sab trains ki punctuality dekhe toh.

Waah, kya culture of entitlement h, maan gye aapko
Matlab you are basically saying that some trains will always run late? Q bhai? Do people from the East deserve such treatment and only trains from ALD deserve to reach NDLS on time?
That's geographical abuse, almost like racism
Aur troll company lol, utna vella koi nhi h idhar, haan NCR waale log ek
baar 12394 k derail hone par race blogging kr rhe the, derailment mein log marr bhi skte hain but aisi kisi cheez ka mazaak bana kr kuch ncr waalo ne apni parwarish ka achha ullekh kiya tha
Waise aapka comment is actually an admission on your part that the said division is utterly incapable of running trains on time, aur aap hmko salaah de rhe hain ki bhains k aage been bajane ka koi laabh nhi h, dhanywaad, how noble of you

The best station on this route for railfanning. And the only one that can be tried and accessed.
This station comes first after the descend from Sakleshpura begins. There are a few LCs but all are from the private estates and not for public. But you can try by getting down on NH75 and asking around and approaching the station
by mud path.
Once here, this is the image ----- a waterfall in front of the PF and an estate behind the falls with a small temple. On the other side is just mountains and forest - a heaven to just be there and wait for the freights or the lonely passenger to cross.
The only catch siding of the ghat is before this station. Just before the catch siding, the train halts for a few minutes and they check brakes and then start rolling down..... The tunnels and major bridges begin after this.

Here is one old pic of the Shiribagilu catch siding, courtesy of IRFCA member Jay Balakrishna. The line on the left is the catch siding, while the one on the right leads to Shiribagilu station.

He was footplating. In first couple of years after the BG line was opened, the 'Green trek' - the hike along the railway line was very popular and many of us git a chance to footplate and walk along the tracks (with official permission too). There are many detailed pics of the route on the IRFCA gallery taken while footplating.

Note point 3 C
How can they not deactivate till a point is reached? Will they know if the LP has deactivated in the middle of the Ghat or rather how do they ensure that he doesn't de-activate?
it like someone checks before descending and checks after descending at the respective stations?

The AEB system is operated by a key, and each locomotive has a unique key.
At the beginning of the descent, the LP receives the key from the station master at Castle Rock. Once the AEB is enabled, the LP gives the key to the guard, who holds on to it till the descent is complete.
At the end of the descent, the guard hands over the key to the LP again and the AEB is disengaged. The key is handed over to the station master at Kulem.
