First Try of Short Trip Report
Reached Solapur Station at 11:15. All trains was running on time. Solapur - Gadag Passenger was at PF1, Udyan at PF3, Pune Passenger at PF5 and empty rake of Solapur-Mumbai was on PF4 (I didn't understand, why they are not using platform 4 and 5 fully).
After Udyan departs Nagercoil-Tirupati-Mumbai came to PF3 meanwhile both the passengers depart. After Nagercoil departs, my train Chennai-Ahmedabad Express came on the same platform. Engine assigned is WDG-3A Vatawa Shed and train was empty as many of them not aware of
this train.
Train leaves Solapur around 12:35 and within 5 mins train tooks huge speed. Then at Malikpeth train enters into 2nd loop line, 1st loop line already occupied by Pune Passenger. Late running Pune-Solapur Intercity (Indrayani) Express hauled by Erode Shed passed with mind blowing speed at 13:10.
After Malikpeth, train was put on side line at Madha. First Oil train with WDG 4 came on another side line then after some time LTT-VSKP passed with full speed. Departs Madha around 14:00.
Now controller of Solapur Division has given priority to ADI Express and running with full honking and chugging. Passed Kurduwadi Junction with a speed of 100Kmph.
Almost on each and every station has Goods was kept on siding and non-stop upto Pophalaj. At Pophalaj, Down Udyan WDP-4B KJM was put on side line and my train passed through main line.
Reached Daund Junction at 15:20, waiting for signal at outer. Train was handover to Pune controller (I think 1 hr before time). On main up line Jhelum was there and on PF2 Goa Express was there.
Slowly our train started moving to loop line PF6 and stopped for line clearence. Finally at 15:40 got yellow signal and train departed.
Now train was running before time, so put on loop line at Kedgaon for giving path to late running Goa Express with WDP-4D and Jhelum Express.
After 30 mins hault, departed at 16:30 from Kedgaon. Now running with full swing.
I totally surprised at Loni to see again Jhelum was put on side line and second time our train was overtaking Jhelum.
Finally reached Pune Station at 17:20 on PF2.
Journey Ends.
