i reached JSME station from my hometown by 16:10.. train was scheduled to arrive at On Time.. so i thought lets do some RF with my Lumia 520.. RPF dekh kar himmat nahin hui.. ek pic li hai sirf SB pic ke liye :D
anyway.. 12304 was expected to reach JSME at 16:55 (as usual delayed )
13007 Toofan came
on PF-2 delayed by 1hrs 12min delayed at 16:50 few min later at 17:16 Howrah Haridwar express arrived ..
later i saw Poorva also came to PF-1 with GZB WAP-7 .. stayed there more than 10min..
finally i saw the white beast approaching slowly to PF-2 .. yes the LEGEND was approaching to JSME.. loco link was HWH WAP-7 (again, i went to kolkata on 18th april n that day too the loco link was HWH-WAP-7) boarded to B4.. as everybody know IR removed curtains from 3A coaches.. (n if sources to be believed IR has a plan to remove it 2A too).. dont know why they gave too much slak to 12305 between HWH-MGS..
KING never touched 110 between JSME-PNBE got unscheduled halt at Mokama JN for 10min n yet arrived to PNBE almost 30 min before time.. dinner was served before PNBE.. n trust me it was pathetic :/
btw JSME se board hone ke baad evening snacks n ek water bottle mili.. soup served after Kiul that crossed at 19:00..
while we were still at PNBE on adjacent platform 12423 arrived with GZB WAP-4.. she too came before time atlest 20min.. departed PNBE n this time it seems aaj KING ka mood track ko tear kar dene ka hai, bt again got unscheduled halt at Kulhariya for 7-8 min.
MGS arrived 00:22 a good 22min before..
i slept after MGS.. n woken up by 6:00am n saw we were at CNB.. sath wale PF se CNB-NDLS Shatabdi nikalne wali thi.. we trailed behind her till delhi..
stopped at TDL for 15min the LKO Shatabdi was also stationary at TDL with WAP-5 (GZB shed) got morning tea at 7am n breakfast at 8:15am..
finally reached NDLS at 11:25.. first time ever i reached late that's too from HWH Rajdhani n wo bhi without foggy days.. must be some problem there.. later checked 12309 also arrived late.. only 12393 reached almost on time today.. :D
anyway it was a good journey will post pics soon :)

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
