Trip Report
Worst journey I ever had due to controller of Pune Division
DOJ - 20 Oct 2015
Train No - 11073 LTT (Mumbai) Chennai Express
Engine - WDG4 Kalyan Shed
- Pune Junction
To - Solapur Juntion
Travel Time - 7 hrs 30 mins.
Train was departed from Lonavala at 15:45 (on time), reached Shivajunagar 16:45.
But due to unavilability of platform (as this is 23 coaches train) train was stopped at outer for more than 30 mins.
After Goa express dep from PF3, this one came to PF at 17:30 and departed at 17:45 (1 hr late due to lack of management).
As this train doesn't have any stoppage upto Solapur I thought it will easily cover within 3.5 hrs and ETA at SUR is 21:15.
But our "great controller of Pune Division" has put my train on siding at Urali Kanchan (18:15).
I was totally blank, why the hell they put our train on siding as this is double line and my train was not making any impact on timely running trains and it doesn't hault at Daund.
Then Garibrath, Hutatma, Chennai and AzadHind back to back 4 trains overtakes us.
Finally we get green signal at 19:30 (1hr 15mins stopped), I was thinking in the whole journey why I took this train instead of favorite Hutatma.
At Daund, Pune Division handover this train to Solapur Division (2hrs 30mins late).
Then In Bhigwan - Mohol Singal line stretch, from Pophalaj to Wakav train was stopped at each and every station like passenger train for giving side to Up Trains.
Finally reached Solapur at 00:15 midnight (3hrs late) and I get to know that Hutatma reached at 22:15 itself. Frustrated journey ends.
Then went to home at 1 and came to station again at 5 to catch Hussain Sagar for going to Hyderabad.. :p
So hectic journey... But journey of Hussainsagar was very good... :)

    Over the last few days, there have been concerns expressed by many members that politics are being discussed. Well, with 90% of the trains NOT running over the last 3 months, there is not much rail-fanning happening!!! People have to discuss something. Mature political discussions are allowed in the Topics section,...
