was excited to travel again in this legend..
packed my stuffs n reached NDLS at 15:20..
surprised to see that 12424 was rescheduled to depart at 15:35 on that day.. must be some technical reason behind the delay departure.. DBRT Rajdhani departed from PF-16 n i thought lets go to the Overbridge to for a view of PF-16 n PF 15..

as Nitish Bro said the curtains in 3A in Ranchi Rajdhani has been removed so i was curious if HWH Rajdhani has seen the same faith or ER still being reluctant to remove them..
RNC Rajdhani's arrival on PF-14 been announced n i saw the rack came with GZB WAP-7.. finally the queen of ER 12314 also came to PF-13.. i went to see if curtains are there in 3A coaches or not.. n found they were very much there in B9..
I thought-- jab SDAH Rajdhani me hai to HWH Rajdhani me hoga :)
finally the Legend Poorva came to PF-16 with GZB WAP-7 in lead.. departed on time n than finally the KING arrived on PF-15.. in between PNBE Rajdhani also arrived with GZB WAP-7 (a dirty looking loco) on PF-14..
what i saw on that day that SDAH Rajdhani's loco link was GZB WAP-7 bt HWH Rajdhani's loco link was HWH WAP-7 ( and again on 4th may when i took this train from JSME to NDLS the loco link was HWH WAP-7.. did they changed loco shed? or dono din Offlink tha??)
anyway got my seat that was Upper berth RAC clear hone ke baad.. curtains were removed from 3A just one trip ago.. got evening snacks just after GZB n soup after ALJN..
train arrived to CNB at 09:35.. ALD dot on time.. PNBE 10 min before.. got un scheduled halt at JHAJHA as KING was almost 1hrs before time.. still managed to reach JSME 15min before time.. arrived MDP 12min delayed.. breakfast has been served just after JSME.. reached HWH on time 12:35..
one coach of 2A was ECR marked on that day.. ye kaise hua? ER ki train me ECR marked 2A coach? :O
