This train is like a rocket...
The continuous chugs ,engine honks,LHB coach jerks and invisible rails interchanges ...everything make up to the deadly combination...
Traveled 161 km()Between SRE and GZB) in 2hrs 10 Minutes....
This train is surely the best one on this route keeping in mind its cost and availability...(Average speed being second best after Dehradun shatabdi)...
sure but surprised to see such status given to a special train...
How the hell was I missing this for so many days...
Feeling "ready to share" after travelling...
Want its special status to continue as it is continuing for the last 1.5 years...

First Of All,This Train is running as special since 5 years nd uses Self-Generating Hybrid LHB Coaches
and Down Is better than UP train Coz most of the time UP train takes 9-11 hrs from umb to jat
whereas othr trains take 7hrs nd reaches jat 2.30-3.30+ hrs late............. >_<
and This Train chugs most just bcoz of WDP3A aka Toaster
:D :D :)

Thanks for your technically detailed reply...
I would want to know two things here:
1: What is self-generating?
2: What is special about WDP3A chugging?

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
